Co-create and collaborate with Office 365 for business
Office 365 makes MS Office applications – including Word®, Excel®, PowerPoint®, OneNote® and Skype for Business® – accessible when and where you need it. Office 365 goes beyond standard Word and Powerpoint. Boost employee productivity, facilitate teamwork, share data and business insights through a secure, cloud-based productivity suite from Microsoft. The benefits of employing Office 365 for business are far-reaching:
Choose a plan that best suits your business requirements and pay month-to-month.
All you need is an internet connection and a device to access your favourite business productivity tools.
Your documents, presentations and spreadsheets are automatically saved in the cloud for security and seamless access.
Our Microsoft specialists will help you deploy Office 365 to your business.
Anti-malware, anti-spam and multiple reduncies thanks to Microsoft’s distributed infrastructure.
For smaller businesses, Office 365 from Ignite offers a selection of packages ranging from the core basics to more sophisticated features.
Not all the plans are available with desktop applications (i.e. applications that you can download) – they are limited to Business and Premium plans. Business Essentials users have access to only the online versions of the applications, which can be accessed through a web browser. The following are available to users of different operating systems:
Office Online comprises the Microsoft productivity suite of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, which can be accessed online. This means you can access them from anywhere with a web browser. The use of these applications in the Cloud, combined with your Cloud storage and delivered by OneDrive for Business, open up a world of collaboration. Now you can share, edit and create documents that can be edited by colleagues or other parties.
The Business, Business Essentials and Business Premium plans are designed for no more than 300 users. This means that a single organisation can buy a maximum of 900 plans with 300 licences under each plan.
Office 365 is tailored to work optimally with every device and operating system it supports to ensure the best performance and experience for users. Note that every iteration of Office (Mac, PC, Android, etc.) may have different version numbers, but are in fact running the latest versions of each.
Office 365 supports, and is backward compatible, with Office 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016. The same goes for Office for Mac 2008 and Mac 2011. Note that clients running earlier versions may need to install a small and freely downloadable compatibility pack from Microsoft.
All Office 365 belongs to your organisation and you can choose to either store it on Microsoft’s OneDrive or on your network’s local resources. We advise using OneDrive to keep your data safe and secure in the cloud.
You’ll need internet access to install and activate 365. Other admin functions such as changing your billing options and managing your OneDrive data also require you to be online (unless you install the OneDrive desktop app). Please note that online access is required for the latest updates and features from Microsoft. However, to use the business productivity applications, you don’t need to be online.
