Office 365

What is Office 365?

Get it done from anywhere

PC, Mac, tablet, phone. You need to be able to work across devices, from anywhere, and have a consistent, clean, and fast experience doing it. Enter Office 365. Whatever device you're working on, Office 365 gives you access to everything you need—your documents, email, calendars, contacts, and collaboration tools all come with you. Your settings roam with you too, so your files are up to date and ready for you to pick up right where you left off, no matter what device you're using.

Microsoft Office 365 is licensed on a flexible, per-user per-month subscription plan with predictable annual costs—enabling you to scale the services when it makes sense.

It's an all in one, pay-as-you-go service.

Microsoft Office 365 for is a secure, easy-to-use set of “cloud-based” web-enabled tools from Microsoft that let you access your email, important documents, contacts, and calendar from almost anywhere and many devices. (Blackberry only available using Blackberry Cloud services at this time).

These tools include Microsoft Office Web Apps, which are web versions of the Microsoft Office desktop apps that you are already familiar with like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint. With Office Web Apps you can create and edit documents on any PC that has a web browser.

It’s ideal if you don’t have your own internal computer network.

  • Email, Calendar and Contacts
  • Premium antivirus, anti-spam and archiving capabilities
  • Optional Unlimited email storage
