What is Office 365?

Office 365 is a subscription plan which permits access to Microsoft Office applications like Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel including other productivity services enabled over the Internet (Saas). It features subscriptions for use at your home or at your business. Office 365 subscriptions for business include services such as Skype web conferencing and Microsoft Exchange hosted email. As well as online storage using OneDrive. The management of office365 services can be handled through managed services

365 subscription services

Many Office 365 subscriptions include the desktop version where users can install most of the applications across multiple devices. When Office 365 is fully installed it includes applications such as: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access. Publisher and Access cannot be installed across multiple devices but the rest can, including Macs, PC’s , Android phones, Android tablets, iPhone and iPad. When you have an active desktop Office 365 subscription, you always have the most recent version.

Microsoft 365 Integration

Office 365 integration refers to the use of Office 365 applications. When your business integrates Office 365, you can manage user accounts in Office 365. You can also implement a single sign-on (SSO) so that users may login with their on-premises credentials. When you integrate with an on-premises server you create a hybrid environment. A hybrid environment can help with migrating users or information to Office 365. Alternatively, you can have some users or information on-premises and some online.

Improved business for SMB’s

Many small businesses don’t realize that Microsoft Office has been moving to a cloud based subscription model, along with many other providers of software. Often they are still using Microsoft Office installed from a disk. Not realizing that the next version they get will be through a subscription rather than a one-time purchase. Office 365 is constantly being updated. Meaning you’re always using the most up to date version and you never have to update it yourself. The benefit is that your software will be updated and therefore you will likely not face any problems. 1CS can sell you one or more Office365 accounts, with or without our managed services.
