Microsoft 365 has so many different flavours and suites within suites that it can often be difficult to find the right fit for your modern workplace. That’s where expert advice from Umbrellar Powered by Pax8’s Sasha Vovchenko comes in.
To help partners to choose the right combination for them, Microsoft has created a Modern Work Plan Comparison spreadsheet.
The spreadsheet offers a range of subscription options that cover the needs of information workers, frontline workers or small/medium businesses. Simply download the latest version from here to get all the details.
Microsoft 365 Plan Chooser
But if a spreadsheet does your head in, why not try the Microsoft 365 plan chooser? This dynamic web page asks you just six short questions relating to:
- company size
- work style
- information protection
- device management
- threat protection
then comes up with recommendations that match your specific needs. For example, if you’re:
- a small business that operates out of an office;
- only needs email and files accessible everywhere;
- doesn’t manage sensitive information and won’t need to remotely wipe devices;
- and not concerned about advanced cyber-threats (although to be honest, we all should be!)
then Microsoft 365 Business Standard is recommended as the right suite for you.
The results outline what you’ll be able to achieve in your modern workplace, the subscription price per user per month, plus applications, services and features you’ll benefit from. You can even download the details as a handy 1-page PDF for future reference.
Want to compare the variation in features between different versions of the same suite (Microsoft 365 Business Basic, Standard and Premium) or you’re wondering what the difference is between Office 365 Enterprise E3 or Microsoft 365 Enterprise E3, try out the Feature Matrix.
This lets you select the suites you’re curious about and position their features side by side to get a clear picture of what you will get – or not!
It’s worth taking the time to think about what you need now – and into the future – and do the research before buying the tools you’ll need for your modern workplace.
Of course, you could always sidestep the heavy lifting this research might entail and simply ask Microsoft Licensing Lead Sasha Vovchenko for licensing advice! Umbrellar Powered by Pax8 are here to help you get the most out of your Microsoft subscriptions, so don’t be shy.
