Microsoft Office can be expensive. To efficiently send emails and write documents you need to purchase a suitable copy of office which can cost easily over £200, and unfortunately using Microsoft Office is a must if you want to guarantee compatibility between computers and users. Due to the expense of Microsoft Office, we are more frequently seeing customers looking for alternatives and inevitably asking the question “What is Office 365?”.

There is a cheaper way of getting hold of the Office applications, and a lot more, by subscribing to Microsoft Office 365. This is a service provided by Microsoft which allows you to rent the use of Office applications, email services and file storage for a monthly fee, so you only pay for what you need.

There are 3 subscriptions to choose from, so you only pay for the services that you require. These options are detailed below.

 

Business Essentials

  • Maximum 300 Users
  • Office Online (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • 1TB Online File Storage Per User
  • Business Class Email, Calendar, and Contacts
  • Skype Video Conferencing
  • Intranet Site

 

Business

  • Maximum 300 Users
  • Full Microsoft Office Applications, Installed on your Computer (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, OneNote)
  • Full Microsoft Office Apps on Phones and Tablets
  • Office Online (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • 1TB Online File Storage Per User

 

Business Premium

  • Maximum 300 Users
  • Full Microsoft Office Applications, Installed on your Computer (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, OneNote)
  • Full Microsoft Office Apps on Phones and Tablets
  • Office Online (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • 1TB Online File Storage Per User
  • Business Class Email, Calendar, and Contacts
  • Skype Video Conferencing
  • Intranet Site

 

Using one of the above subscription services will not only hugely reduce the up front cost of purchasing Microsoft Office, but also give you additional services such as email mailboxes, Skype for Business, and Online Storage that you would not usually be able to benefit from.

We also offer an Enterprise set of subscription services for Microsoft office. Let us know if you would like information regarding these services.
