Sign up now for the FREE Office 365 Beta
Microsoft Office 365 for professionals and small businesses is a subscription service that combines the familiar Microsoft Office Web Apps with a set of web-enabled tools that are easy to learn and use, that work with your existing hardware, and that come backed by the robust security, reliability, and control you need to run your business.
Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription service, and prices start at £4 per user per month for up to 25 users.
You can sign up for the free Beta now (there is currently a 2-4 week wait for activation, because of high demand). Here’s a round-up of the key benefits:
Email & calendar, powered by Microsoft Exchange Online
Office 365 gives you access to email, calendar, and contacts from virtually anywhere, at any time, on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices – while it helps to protect against viruses and spam.
Office Web Apps
Office Web Apps are convenient online companions to Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft OneNote that offer you an easy way to access, view, and edit documents directly in your web browser.
Websites and collaboration
Office 365 enables you to access and share documents and insights, contacts, calendars, and tasks in a single location and from a shared computer or smartphone.
IM and online meetings
Microsoft Lync Online helps you find and quickly connect with the right person through instant messaging (IM), Lync video calls, or online meetings from within the Office applications you already use every day.
Business-class security and reliability
Office 365 is built from the ground up for reliability, availability, and performance. Our proven service is powered by the same Microsoft email and collaboration products that businesses of all sizes have been using for decades.
