Office 365

Office 365 is Microsoft’s latest offering for the Office suite of programs. Office 365 comes in several levels depending on your needs, and provides some very interesting benefits over the traditional software licensing model.

Office 365 is a subscription license, charged per user and billed either monthly or annually. One big advantage of this offering is that your users have access to the Office applications either locally at their desks or on-line via a web browser. In addition, each user can install Office on five devices simultaneously. This means their work PC, home PC, tablet and phone can all have Office installed at the same time. For users that travel, access to Office, including Outlook e-mail, is easy from any computer with a browser.

Network Directions is your Office 365 expert. If you’re interested in upgrading your existing Office versions, or if you’re looking to move from a local e-mail server to the Hosted Exchange service, give us a call! We’re here to help!
