Office 365 Pro Plus is the latest product to be offered by Microsoft. A business focused version of the all new cloud based office package that boasts features designed specifically to aid a business environment.
The professional version offers the same nine applications that the home version does, but differences in the licensing and updates are more suited to business needs to benefit the management and deployment of Office. Pro Plus allows administrators to set automatic updates, this not only saves time but also ensures all users are running up to date software. Another advantage of the pro version is the ability to run older versions of the software alongside so documents saved in older formats can still be accessed.
The licensing of the home and professional versions are also different. Office 365 Pro Plus is licensed per user and not per device, unlike the home version which licenses each individual device. This means each user can register a license on up to five separate devices, including home and personal equipment.
Office 365 Pro Plus also offers exchange based email and a commercial grade cloud storage system, unlike the home version that provides email access via outlook.com and SkyDrive storage. The professional systems provide enhanced security features compared to the services offered as part of the home version.
The cloud hosted service is offered at yearly and monthly rates per user in a range of different packages aimed at small and medium sized businesses.
