Hello all, well Microsoft has thought up a way to offer you Office as a subscription. It is called Office 365. The features are unrivaled because you are getting most of the popular features of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more for about $7.00/user/mth. You don’t need to pay for a volume license or maintain keys or worry about your mobile work force. For the SMB this is awesome.
But wait, it gets better. If you buy their Exchange option you get automatic integration with the Exchange functions. That is about $5.00/user/mth more. It is hard to buy and maintain servers for that price for an office of between 5 to 20 users and perhaps more depending on your business function. If the product is as solid as they are touting it is a huge boon for them.
Until next time,
