For many IT pros, the biggest problem facing their businesses is their lack of access to the cloud.
As a result, they’ve become frustrated by the lack of apps and content available to them, with Microsoft’s Office 365 service often being the first stop in the online discovery process.
Now, Microsoft is finally trying to make its cloud offering a little more convenient for its customers, by launching an Office 365 Pro subscription plan that will give you the opportunity to use all the cloud-ready apps and services.
Starting in October, users will be able to sign up for an Office Premium subscription, which comes with an unlimited number of free Office 365 services, such as Office Web Apps, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive, OneSync, SharePoint Online, OneCalendar, OneExcel, OneScan, OnePhoto, OneCloud, Outlook, and more.
The subscription plan also includes Office ProPlus, which offers a suite of cloud-optimized Office 365 apps, including Word, PowerPoint and Excel, and Office Online, which provides a collection of productivity tools for organizations.
If you already have an Office Online subscription, you’ll need to purchase the ProPlus plan and upgrade to the Pro premium subscription.
The two subscriptions come with two-year contracts, and users will have to pay a $20 yearly fee for each.
The Office Pro premium subscriptions include a $5,000 annual fee, but Microsoft is offering an additional $5 a month that goes toward Office 365 PRO Plus.
Microsoft says that the Pro Plus plan will give customers an advantage in the cloud search process, and will allow users to access all the Office 365 products.
The new subscription plans are available to anyone, regardless of whether they have an existing Office 365 account or not.
Microsoft is not currently providing the names of users who are already subscribed to the premium plan.
Users can sign up by going to https://office365.microsoft.com/signup to signup for a ProPlus subscription.
To do so, they’ll have to choose a free account and agree to Microsoft’s terms and conditions.
Microsoft is still working on its cloud roadmap, which is expected to release soon, but we can already tell that the Office subscription plans offer a good start.
