Office 365

Office 365 as part of Salamander

Whether your school already uses Office 365 or you’re thinking about using it, it’s management is included as part of the Salamander Active Directory and Salamander SharePoint products. Access and groups are based on the way your management system is set-up and how your school uses, or wants to use, Office 365, from email to whole-school online learning. The set-up is completely flexible and we work closely with you to understand your needs.
For a complete online learning environment, we can use Salamander SharePoint to set-up SharePoint to reflect how your school works.
Visit our Salamander Active Directory and SharePoint pages to read about the key benefits and features.
