Why should I buy Office 365 if I already have Office on my desktop?
If you purchase Office 365 – Business Premium plan, you’ll get the latest version of the Office desktop applications you know and love—Excel, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Publisher. And whenever Office is updated, you will automatically receive the latest upgrade at no additional charge so that you’re always on the current version of Office. Office 365 gives you the ability to easily and securely share and collaborate on documents using OneDrive for Business and Office Online. With Business Premium you can also create a domain-based email address and share calendars and contacts with people inside and outside of your company. Finally, unlike the Office you currently have, Office 365 gives you the ability to have real-time online meetings and screen sharing using Lync.
Will the latest version of Microsoft Office work on my computer?
To use the 5 desktop downloads you get with the Business Premium plan, you must be on one of the following operating systems:
- Windows Server 2008 R2
- Windows 7
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows 8
- Mac OS X version 10.6 or later.
If you are running a different operating system, remember that you can still work online with Office Online, browser-based versions of your favorite Microsoft tools like Excel, Word or PowerPoint, which are included with the Business Premium plan.
What is Office for iPad?
Office for iPad features full, touch-friendly versions of the most popular Office apps: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. While the free iPad apps allow you to read Word documents, use Excel data and present with PowerPoint, only Office for iPad lets you create and edit documents in each app. Office for iPad is available with the Business Premium plan, both of which include a license that’s valid for up to 5 iPads or Windows tablets, as well as up to 5 PCs or Macs, for a single user.
What is Office Online?
Office Online features easy-to-use versions of Word®, Excel®, PowerPoint® and OneNote® that you use within a Web browser. You can access Office Online from your cloud storage to create new files, edit existing files, share and collaborate online with clients or colleagues.
What is online document collaboration?
With our Business Premium plan, documents created or stored in your OneDrive for Business cloud storage can be simultaneously edited with others inside or outside your company – anyone with a link to a document can make edits at the same time as you. You can even see each other’s edits as you go, so you’ll always be on the same page with the latest version, all without having to send documents back and forth via email.
What is Lync Online?
Lync Online, included in the Online Essentials and Business Premium plans, allows you to communicate with your colleagues, customers and partners via online conference call or HD video conference. With just a couple of clicks, you can share your screen or invite up to 250 people inside or outside your company to take part in an online conversation.
What is the cloud?
Working or storing files in ‘the cloud’ means that your programs and documents are stored securely on the Internet — not on your hard drive – so you can access them anytime, anywhere, from almost any device connected to the Web. You don’t need to buy additional software and you’re not dependent on your computer to get work done. Plus, since your documents are stored on secure servers, you have peace of mind knowing that, even if your hard drive crashes, your documents and programs are safe and accessible from any web browser.
What are the benefits of having domain-based email addresses?
A domain-based email address, like [email protected]
, helps you look more professional with customers and promotes your website and company. In fact, customers are 9 times more likely to choose a company with a professional email address*. Every time you send an email from a domain-based address, you’re putting your domain name in front of customers and encouraging them to visit your website. And with each plan, you can create free ‘alias’ addresses – like one using your first name ([email protected]
) and others for different departments ([email protected]
) — that all feed into a single inbox and make you look even more professional.
