What is Office 365?

Move to the Cloud?

If you are like most small and mid-size businesses, then chances are you've struggled with this issue - and with good reason. After all you've got a lot to think about. What is the cloud really going to cost? Will it enable your people to work how and where they want while keeping you in control? How do you know your data is secure? Don't worry. We hear you.

Your complete office in the cloud.

Office 365 is cloud-based productivity, hosted by Microsoft. At its heart is Office itself-the familiar, rich Office client customers use and love- now offered as a cloud service, so it's always up to date.

But Office 365 is also so much more. It's about bringing enterprise-grade services to organisations of all sizes, from HD video-conferencing to sharing documents to business-class email. Per user licensing means customers can download and use Office on their favourite devices (online or off), while IT administrators keep control over the organisation's workloads from a single, easy to use console. Ultimately, Office 365 delivers tremendous value in one affordable subscription.


Always up-to-date

Empower your people with the full suite of the world's most powerful productivity tools. With Office 365 you always have the latest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher and Access whether offline or online. Work together in real time and maintain the IT control you need, without compromise.

Every device

Stay productive, even on the go. Install Office on up to 5 PCs or Macs and 5 mobile devices. Access, edit, and view Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents on iPhones, Android phones, and Windows Phones. Use the OneNote, Lync Mobile, and SharePoint Newsfeed apps on most devices.

Every document

Your personalised Office goes where you go. Office links you to your files from virtually anywhere, and your personalised settings roam with you. Go straight to the last page you were working on or consult your personal dictionary, no matter what device you're using.
