Office Plans

The Office Professional Plus subscription allows customers to purchase monthly licences for each of their users. Each user licence allows five concurrent installations. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office Professional Plus are available in Office 365.

After you download Office Professional Plus for Office 365, you can make the Office suite available to users in your organisation based on the number of user licences that you sign up for.

Office Professional Plus for Office 365 includes the same applications that are available in the most current Microsoft Office Professional Plus client suite.

What’s in Office 365?

Depending on the plan that you purchase for Office 365, the subscription licence also includes access to Microsoft OneDrive for viewing and editing documents on the web, Office Web Apps which are online companions to Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint and Word applications that enable users to access and edit documents, regardless of their location. Office 365 comes with Skype for Business, as well as Yammer, anti malware and anti spam software.

To use the Office Web Apps, users must have an Office 365 plan that includes OneDrive for Business.

As an Office 365 partner, we have the expertise and insight necessary to maximise your cloud productivity options. We analyse your business, evaluate your processes and then recommend a specific Office 365 solution.

Whatever the size of your business, Office 365 offers significant benefits.

The ability to scale up as your business grows means that you can create individual solutions for individuals or departments by mixing and matching apps, and adding and removing licences as required, without having to change or adapt your system.

Internet connectivity gives you the ability to work remotely, and because it’s a cloud-based system you can work with anyone in real time, with the advantage of multi-device usage.

Real-time, synchronised teamwork is made easy by Office 365 collaboration features for both current and previous documents, besides multi-party video, chat and shared calendars.

Your team automatically has access to the same version of the latest features and capabilities, including the impressive email capabilities of Outlook. As Office 365 is cloud-based, patches and upgrades are unnecessary.

Because it’s a subscription-based service, costs move from capital to operating expenses making cashflow easier to manage as well as enabling services to be added and removed as necessary. So you don’t pay for what you don’t use.

And if you have concerns about keeping your data safe, Office 365 has significant security features built in. These include message encryption that works regardless of which email service provider your recipient uses, Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) that alerts you to  suspicious activity while stopping the malicious attachment, Mobile Device Management to protect sensitive company information and Data Loss Prevention to prevent sensitive information leaving your company.

You want your IT to work properly, all the time. So do we.
