Simply put, Microsoft Office 365 is the brand name used to describe a group of software services subscriptions that offer productivity software services to its subscribers. Office 365 offers plans including email and social networking services for business and enterprise users. Users can connect via the Internet, set up an account, make payment, download the appropriate files, and go to work without the hassle of installation disks.
Whether people work for small or large companies, they typically work from multiple locations, using multiple devices throughout their day. Given this new trend, small businesses are beginning to realize that their competitive advantage comes from how they implement technology in and out of the office.
Small and midsized businesses have to be smart with their technology investments. Cloud services like Office 365 aren't just an affordable option; they also provide an opportunity to transform small businesses. They are easy to deploy and easy to manage.

IT Is In Control
With IT-level support, you are provided an intuitive cloud-based management tool. Centralized, web-based access for configuration and administration of Exchange Online services include mailboxes, user settings, distribution lists, company settings, and staff.
Return On Investment
Bring together enhanced collaboration via enterprise-grade cloud-based email, calendar, instant messaging, web conferencing and document sharing; deliverable for a per user monthly charge.
Works On Both Major Operating Systems
You can install Microsoft Office 365 on machines running Windows 7 and higher (but not Vista or XP). When you install the software on a Mac running OS X (10.5.8 and higher), you'll actually get Office 2011 (full version), rather than Office 365.
Works On Touch-Screen Devices
The new Office is designed to work on touch-screen devices, like tablets and touch-screen laptops running Windows 8. Now you can truly access it wherever you like!
Free Skype Minutes
This perk may be easy to overlook, but could come in handy. Home premium subscribers are allotted an hour of free Skype minutes per month to call landlines in other supported countries. Of course, Skype-to-Skype calls are always free, but you can use your free Office minutes for times when you need to dial an international landline number.
