Find the right plan for your organization and grow your productivity with unparalleled support

Office 365 Productivity Features

With Office 365 Family you and the people you share with can:

  • Access Files Anywhere - Office 365 allows your organization to store all the files in the cloud. This means they can be accessed on any device, from any location with an internet connection. For organizations where mobile working is essential, being able to access all the apps and files you need when out of the office is invaluable.
  • Secure Cloud Storage - Office 365 is a totally secure environment with robust security measures in place, like two-factor authentication, which ensures unauthorized people can't access your files if they happen to get on your device. Threat detection and anti-malware means security threats are identified and stopped immediately, which is particularly important for organizations that deal with confidential data or information. Using Office 365 means your business is free to operate without any concerns for security.
  • Improved Communication - Office 365 gives users tools to keep communication centralized and straightforward across Skype and Outlook. Skype for Business lets you hold conference calls and meetings with staff and external agencies anywhere in the world, so you can always collaborate and communicate regardless of distance or time difference. 
  • Predictable spend - Office 365 is paid for on a per user, per month basis, like a subscription. The cost of your licences depends on the level of functionality you choose for your business. When you purchase Office 365, different enterprise levels will include different applications and products, which dictates the cost of each license.
  • Business Continuity - With files stored in the cloud and regularly backed up, your organization continue to operate as normal in the case of a disaster at the office. No matter what happens to your physical devices, your email, files and data are safely stored in the cloud.  Exchange also has recovery features which mean individual emails or even entire inboxes can be restored if needed. 
  • Automatic upgrades - All the essential apps such as Word, Excel and Outlook are included and work online without the need to install any software. Upgrades are performed automatically at predetermined intervals, so you don't have to worry about being on the latest version; that will happen automatically.
  • Centralized Collaboration - Office 365 lets you share mailboxes, calendars, contacts and edit documents in real time through collaborative tools. Sharing calendars in Exchange means you can see who in your organization is available when, so you can schedule meetings that work for everyone, first time round. Shared mailboxes mean multiple people can access the same mailbox, so messages can be filtered to land in the shared mailbox and won't be missed. 

Benefits of Hiring a Microsoft Partner for Your Office 365 Purchase

You can improve productivity and reduce your IT burden with innovative Office applications, intelligent cloud services and world-class security for your business.

  • Licensing optimization - With Microsoft now rigorously enforcing its subscription terms, with only a 72 hour cooling off period after buying, it’s even more important to ensure you’re on the right plans. Microsoft Partner knows 365 licensing inside out, and has the experience of working with many other organizations who may have similar requirements to yours.
  • Flexible billing - A Microsoft Partner will bill you for your cloud consumption only and the best part is, you don't need an always on credit card. Our agreements are more flexible than a Microsoft EA or open license, with shorter contract terms, lower (or no) penalties for adjustments, and no upfront licensing costs. 
  • Cost savings - If you choose to go the Microsoft Partner route, it unlocks opportunities to gain discounts. This is a big win against paying direct. We often see organizations with an EA who can get all the services they need and use from a Microsoft 365 Business plan, at a much lower cost to the business - that's where we can help. 
  • Licensing expertise - With one Microsoft partner looking after all your Microsoft 365 licenses, you can draw on our expertise and skills to maximize the benefits of your technology investment.
  • IT support - If you have an EA, your organization has to purchase support directly from Microsoft for escalation. However, if you partner with a Microsoft Partner, we become your 1st and 2nd line point of contact for the service, and already have a built-in escalation agreement to Microsoft for additional support, at no cost to your organization.

Office 365 Licensing FAQs

Will I still maintain Admin Control?

Yes. You can still have full admin control over your Office 365 tenancy and Azure subscriptions. 

What is the difference between Office 2021 and Microsoft 365?

Office 2021 is sold as a one-time purchase, which means you pay a single, up-front cost to get Office apps for one computer. One-time purchases are available for both PCs and Macs. However, there are no upgrade options, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you'll have to buy it at full price.

Microsoft 365 is a subscription that includes the most collaborative, up-to-date features in one seamless, integrated experience. Microsoft 365 includes the robust Office desktop apps that you’re familiar with, like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. You also get extra online storage and cloud-connected features that let you collaborate on files in real time. With a subscription, you'll always have the latest features, fixes, and security updates along with ongoing tech support at no extra cost. You can choose to pay for your subscription on a monthly or yearly basis, and the Microsoft 365 Family plan lets you share your subscription with your family for up to 6 people, and use your apps on multiple PCs, Macs, tablets, and phones.

How do I know if my PC or Mac can run Microsoft 365?

Microsoft 365 is compatible with PC, Mac, Android, and iOS. See system requirements for compatible versions of your devices, and for other feature requirements.

Will Microsoft 365 be identical on a PC and a Mac?

No. Apps are tailored to work best on each operating system. The apps available for Mac users and the specific features included may be different from those available for PC users. With Microsoft 365, you can be flexible. With your account, you are not limited to exclusively Mac or exclusively PC, so you can transition across devices.

I'm an existing Office 365 subscriber. What does this mean for me?

This means that your Office 365 subscription will automatically be renamed to Microsoft 365. Get everything you love about Office 365, plus the additional benefits as they are released, all at the same price. No action is needed from your end. Changes will begin starting April 21, 2020.

How many people can use a Microsoft 365 Subscription?

You can share Microsoft 365 Family with 5 other people in your household, for a total of 6 users. Microsoft 365 Personal can be used by 1 person.

Do I keep control of my documents with a Microsoft 365 subscription?

Yes. Documents that you have created belong fully to you. You can choose to store them online on OneDrive or locally on your PC or Mac.
