Cogmotive Ltd, the leading provider of reporting tools for the Microsoft Office 365 platform, offers its application to all Microsoft Office 365 Small Business Customers for free
Microsoft provide reporting capabilities within the Office 365 portal for customers on Enterprise subscriptions. These built-in reports provide customers with a limited overview of how their employees are using the Office 365 service.
Unfortunately Microsoft Office 365 Small Business or Small Business Premium customers do not get access to any of these reports and are “flying blind” when it comes to understanding what really goes on inside their Office 365 environment.
Cogmotive has stepped up to cover this gap by offering its enterprise level Office 365 reporting application for free. All Microsoft Office 365 customers with fewer than 25 mailboxes are entitled to the full version of Cogmotive Reports at no charge.
Alan Byrne, Director of Cogmotive Ltd, said: "Small businesses fuel our economy and we want to help ensure that they have the tools needed to compete with larger businesses."
It is not just small business customers who benefit from Cogmotive Reports. Cogmotive’s customers range from small businesses to global Fortune 500 companies with thousands of employees. Cogmotive Reports gives their IT managers a simple yet powerful tool to collect detailed information about their company’s Office 365 environment. The secure web application allows users to produce customised reports and graphs, which can be downloaded, exported and automatically emailed on a scheduled basis.
It is a simple way for managers to gain insights into how the Office 365 cloud is being used by their employees. The application provides reporting on users and mailboxes, mobile devices, distribution groups, mail traffic, Lync online and licences. This information can help companies to manage their IT budgets by giving them a greater understanding of what is actually being used and whether all the licences paid for are actually needed.
There are also a range of security and compliance metrics available, which are particularly useful for financial institutions that face regular audits, but can help any organisation to ensure it has the correct security settings in place. The reports will detail email groups, who have access to certain mailboxes and the security policies applied to each user.
Cogmotive Ltd is a Microsoft Partner and authorised Office 365 reseller, and its Microsoft Certified staff can provide all the help customers need to get the most out of the reporting tools.
