Do you know the differences between the Microsoft 365 products available?
If you are a small or medium business and use Microsoft Office products, such as Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint, then you probably already have a subscription for Microsoft Office. But which version do you have?
The standard subscription provides the ability to install the desktop applications onto your PC or Mac. However, with a Microsoft 365 Business subscription you get a range of cloud-based services that can complement your business and may even allow you to replace your on-premise server (if you have one) to save costs in power, maintenance and support. The cloud-based services include Exchange Online (a fully featured Email and Scheduling service), SharePoint Online (a complete file storage and workflow system which forms the backend to Microsoft Teams) and OneDrive to provide you with ample cloud storage.
The Plans that are available from Microsoft or your Microsoft Partner are:
We would highly recommend you consider Microsoft 365 Business Enhanced for your business if you would like control over your data and user access, especially to restrict who can access the cloud and from where, plus ATP includes Azure Rights Management to help you control confidential documents being shared across the Internet and Windows Defender anti-virus for your Windows 10 PC.
Subscribing to a Microsoft 365 plan though a Microsoft Partner will take the uncertainty out of the setup and support, as they will help you get the right product and install it to work seamlessly with your current system and even help you migrate your data. Don’t forget, your Microsoft Partner can also provide you with ongoing technical support too.
