60 seconds focus on Office 365

We at Swan are trying to help show our clients the best ways to utilise technology available to them and so we are going to try something different in the form of a challenge.

They say the average person can read around 200 words in a minute. With this in mind we thought we would take just 1 minute and try to explain the benifits of the three main MS Office 365 plans in under 60 seconds.

(Wait! What if I want more info than 200 words? Move out of the way, there are busy people behind you looking to get in, read the info and get out! If you want more info please see the links below this email and see our more detailed pages at the Swan Solutions website. Now, back to the challenge….) So, get ready, start the clock and begin. Office 365 = Cloud based services that can be used on local machines and/or online. Main benefits = Cheaper than on premise versions, easier to maintain, allows user collaboration and gives flexibility when working away from your office. Cost = Monthly cost varies depending on which plan you need. The plans: A. Essentials = Full MS Exchange 2016 email (i.e. no different to having a server on site apart from its cheaper) and OneDrive 1TB cloud storage per user. £3.10 per user/per month. B. Business = Latest version of MS Office (2016) including Outlook, Word, Excel and more. NO EMAIL. £7.00 per user/per month. C. Business Premium = Full MS Exchange 2016 email, OneDrive cloud storage AND latest version of MS Office (2016) including Outlook, Word, Excel and more. £7.80 per user/per month. Do I need to take the same plan for all users? No, only use the plan most relevant for EACH INDIVIDUAL. Sounds good, how do I move? Swan Solutions can manage your move to the new 365 platform. Get in touch! STOP THE CLOCK. Phew that was intense! So how did we do? 176 words! Less than 60 seconds and you should be a lot more clued up on which options you think would be better for you and why. So what shall we do with the spare 24 words? Let’s have a sing along… "Once upon a time I was falling in love, now I’m only falling apart.

Nothing I can do but total eclipse of the heart…"

So there you have it, more knowledge on MS Office 365 AND as a bonus you now have an 80’s ‘Classic’ on loop in your head for the rest of the day. You're welcome….. Think MS Office 365 is for you or want to talk it through in case it can transform your business? Contact us: You can email our team via sales@swan-solutions.com or call us on 0845 643 6011.
