Office365 Launches

Wednesday, July 6, 2011


Office365 is now out of Beta and can be purchased by anyone wishing to use the service. The service has some exciting potential and having used the Beta to create a SharePoint externally facing site there is a niche for the product for those organisations not wishing to spend a large amount of money on their own software and infrastructure.

Some off the most useful features of Office365 are not even the SharePoint capabilities.

Lync is a great product for any business to provide real time communications. The Live meeting aspect is great if you have ever struggled with setting up webcasts.

Office Web Apps mean that your licensing cost for Office can be vastly reduced for those non-power users and gives them access to Office on the move. Likewise for Enterprise users you get a copy of Microsoft Office within the package so it provides a very good way to reduce this license cost initially also.

To sign up for a trial of Office 365 the link is here, if you need any help setting up Office365 let me know and I can help out.
