It is no secret that for small businesses, the right technology can mean the difference between merely surviving and fully thriving. Office 365 is transformational for businesses of all sizes, but levels the playing field for small and midsized businesses (SMBs) in particular because it makes enterprise-grade tools reasonably priced and easy to set up and manage.
Today Microsoft announced the availability of three new Office 365 plans created to meet the needs of SMBs with up to around 250 employees. The new Office 365 plans, which was originally announced earlier this year, provide even more flexibility and value to SMBs.
The new Office 365 plans for SMBs are:
- Office 365 Business: The full Office applications—Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Publisher and OneDrive for Business cloud storage, which makes it easy to access, edit and share your documents across your Windows PC, Mac, iPad, Windows tablet and smartphone.
- Office 365 Business Essentials: The core cloud services for running your business—business class email and calendaring, Office Online, online meetings, IM, video conferencing, cloud storage and file sharing and much more.
- Office 365 Business Premium: Get everything from both the Office 365 Business and Business Essentials plans.
