What is Office 365?

Office 365 is a suite of services from Microsoft that includes access to Office applications, plus other productivity services that can be enabled over the Internet.

Office 365 plans for business include services such as Unified Communications with Skype for Business, Hosted Email for Business with Exchange Online, Teams with SharePoint, and additional online storage with OneDrive for Business.

Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of the latest Office applications which can be installed across multiple computers and devices. This includes PCs, Macs, Android tablets, Android phones, iPad, and iPhone. When you have an active Office 365 subscription that includes the desktop version of Office, you always have the most up-to-date version of the applications.

The Business Benefits

With one users license being able to be deployed on up to 5 types of devices, you can run the same version of Office 365 (and access the same documents and programmes) from your desktop, laptop, tablet, mobile and any other supporting device simultaneously.

Office 365 is paid for on a monthly basis which minimises your upfront costs. With automatic updates compatibility issues become a thing of the past as you'll always have the latest version and features.

What do the plans consist of?

Office 365 plans are split into two core groups: Business and Enterprise. These plans are designed to suit a wide variety of business needs. You can mix and match all elements as they can be purchased separately as well.
