Office 365 is now avaialble for purchase!


I just bought Office 365!

Was it the first Small Business Account in the world? Dont' know, but that would sweet. End to end ther process took about 7 minutes to get fully functional services. Very smooth
I just finished buying Office 365 for Small Business for 1 seat.
The services were slated to go on sale tomorrow, but sometimes Microsoft sneaks these things in earlier so everything is in place.

The process of purchasing was WAY BETTER than with BPOS. Easy and straightforward See for yourself!

The E Plans Explained

by Brett

To get a solid idea of the differences in the E plans, you have to review a number of documents, starting with the general list of plans as shown here. The plan descriptions don’t say you actually get Exchange Online, instead you get “Email, calendar, contacts, personal archive, and 25GB mailbox storage.” So some translation is needed.

Office 365 P1 (SMB Plan) - Features, Limits, and Capabilites

by Brett

The Office 365 For Small Business and Enterprise plan is a great value for small businesses. Considering there are at least 3 million small businesses with 5 employees or less, Microsoft can expect to gain a ton of users. Training will be available at Office365training.com (not affiliated with Microsoft) for end users and plan administrators.

This article details the difference between the E and P plans. Many of the differences are important and hard to identify. For many small businesses, the P1 plan is a great fit. For others, you may want to choose the E plans - this document will help you make an informed decision about which is best for you.

Microsoft can and does update the services regularly, so while I’ve checked and re-checked the details, the services and capabilities do change.
