If you have a Microsoft 365 Business Premium, did you know that you have access to a whole host of tools that could make life easier for you?

While you’re no doubt familiar with Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams and OneDrive, there are a wide range of other, ‘lesser known’ applications available to you.

Let’s take a closer look at a few that could really benefit team members working in holiday park businesses.


Microsoft Planner is a task management tool which provides a visual platform for teams to create, organise and track tasks and projects.

Typically used by marketing and creative teams but also really handy for all team leaders to delegate tasks, set deadlines and monitor team progress.

You may already be paying for a similar tool within your business (Monday, Asana, Trello, ClickUp etc.) Planner could probably do the same job for you without the additional cost.


Microsoft Visio lets you transform complicated text and tables that are hard to digest into visual diagrams and flowcharts that communicate information at a glance.

It offers a wide variety of built-in shapes, objects and stencils to make creating your diagram as easy as possible.

So whether you’re working on a diagram to assist with infrastructure planning at your park, or mapping out your guests’ customer journey into a flowchart, save yourself the pain of trying to create your diagram or flowchart in Word or PowerPoint, and use Visio instead!


Microsoft Sway is a versatile, easy-to-use tool that you will find useful to create engaging and interactive presentations, internal posters, newsletters and more.

These are just a handful of the tools available if you are a Microsoft 365 Business Premium account holder. It’s definitely worth spending some time looking at what resources are available to you that could make your job easier.

As part of the managed IT services that Grenadier Computing provide to holiday park operators, all team members have access to an online library of e-learning videos to provide support with learning and using new applications. Get in touch today and we’ll give you a demo.
