Gone are the days of version compatibility issues! With Office 365 ProPlus, you’ll always have access to the most recent Office release.
Office 365 isn’t just in the cloud. Most Office 365 plans provide access to the rich client, and the ability to download on up to 15 devices/user (5 PC/Mac, 5 tablets and 5 mobile devices).
We didn’t forget about the Office Suite! Another common entry point to Office 365 is the downloadable Office suite applications, for example: Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote.
The downloadable Office suite from Office 365 holds certain significant advantages over previous versions and even the latest Office 2019. Giga-Green has been previously asked to identify these advantages and are happy to share our thoughts!
The first is the sheer number of device installs Office 365 versions allow over the traditional (.msi) Office installations. Office 365 click-to-run versions offer up to 15 different devices per user broken into 5 PC/Mac installs, 5 mobile devices/smartphones, and 5 tablets (iOS/Android). This gives you and your employees the freedom to work from home or the office with the applications they rely on! Special note here, you do in fact need Office 365 if you want to use the full mobile versions at all!
The second clear advantage relies in a more nuance of cloud applications and software-as-a-service, but like all great advantages, it involves an element of security! Office 365 is cloud connected and continually updates itself. This lends to a crucial security aspect of software updates and maintaining the latest patches. Office 365 does this work for you so you no longer have to update versions and automates application security on your behalf!
The third advantage and to some of our customers, the most important advantage, are the additional tools that Office 365 offers alongside the traditional Office suite. Next level productivity, takes next level tools, and Office 365 offers these to get the most out of your software platform. Tools including OneDrive for Business, Planner, Flow, Forms, Bookings, MileIQ, and Sway are only available with the cloud solutions and not the traditional 2019 versions.
