Microsoft Office 365: 7 Plans to Work Smarter

In 2011, Microsoft released Office 365 bringing an enhanced cloud service to the market. Combining Microsoft’s Office Suite with cloud services, Office 365 changed the landscape for SMB and enterprise customers.

With access to the entire Office Suite on PCs, Macs, tablets, iPad, and Android devices, users could finally work anywhere, anytime. Administration of Office applications was also dramatically simplified as software updates were managed by Office 365 and featured built-in security as well as user management through a single console.

An ever-evolving service, Office 365 has 7 plans to help you get more work done. We’ve reviewed each plan and summarized their features and pricing.
