Save on your licensing

Did you know that you can upgrade from Office 365 E3 to Microsoft 365 Business (which includes the Enterprise Mobility and Security suite) and Save £2.50 per licence?

Did you also know that not everyone within your company has to be on the same type of licence? This is a very common problem meaning many companies are being charged every month for features which most users just don't need.

Risc IT Solutions are a Microsoft Gold Partner, managing over 22,000 seats across the United Kingdom. We take pride in being trusted advisers and providing the right solutions at the most efficient price possible. We also deploy Office 365 licences based on individual requirements meaning you and your company only pay for what you need.

What could this mean?

As an example - and we see ones like this all the time - a company with 300 staff came to us as they were concerned they were paying too much for their licences. Let's break things down.

Company with 300 x E3 Office 365 Licences = £5280 a month.

Upon investigation, we discovered that only 50 users needed E3 due to needing Shared Computer Activation. As Microsoft 365 Business includes all elements of E3 plus the advanced security with EM+S, and is also cheaper, we migrated those 50. For everyone else we moved them to Office 365 Business Premium with no noticeable difference for the users. The company also needed the facility to send encrypted emails, and for some individuals it was vital that they had litigation hold.

So, after optimising their licences, they ended up with the following:

50x Microsoft 365 Business - Upgrade from Office 365 E3 = £755
250x Office 365 Business Premium = £2350
250x Azure Information Protection (Email Encryption) = £375
20x Exchange Archive (Litigation Hold) = £46

This comes to a total of £3526 = A Saving of £1754 Per Month
