Along with the announcement about three new applications and services that are coming to Office 365 Business Premium users, Microsoft today also announced the new Office 365 Business center. Office 365 Business center is a central location which brings Bookings, Connections, Listings and Invoicing together allowing Office 365 customers to have easy access to their business apps and data in one place. It also comes with an unified dashboard which allows them to view key metrics from all the business apps, including total outstanding invoices, the number of appointments scheduled, the impressions across Facebook, Google, Bing and Yelp, and the number of new subscribers and sent campaigns.
The Office 365 Business center also comes with an activity feed where customers can see the details of what’s happening within each of the apps. It also provides suggestions on what actions to take next, such as alerting them that a payment is overdue, it’s time to resend an invoice and more.
Because the new business apps are built to work together, you don’t waste valuable time setting up connectors or transferring data manually.
Office 365 Business center will be rolled out in preview to Office 365 First Release customers in the coming weeks and it will be generally available before end of this year.
