Microsoft released Office 365 to the public. For those readers unfamiliar with Office 365, it is the successor to BPOS. We are very excited to offer Office 365 to our customers because it is designed to be a highly available, cost effective and scalable solution; perfect for most small businesses who want to limit upfront costs.
Microsoft’s Office 365 brings hosted email (Exchange Online), hosted file sharing (SharePoint Online) and communication tools (Lync Online) together in one place. Office 365 presents these products in a layout that any current Microsoft Office user will recognize. We really like this because it will make the transition to Office 365 much easier for the end user.
Additionally, the pricing plans provide our customers with the ability to purchase subscriptions of Office Professional Plus (a full suite Microsoft Office application including a whole slew of productivity tools) and/or Office Web Apps (a simple set of desktop applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, to view and edit documents online) depending on the plan you choose.
