Office 2016 is still the name used for the familiar productivity software, which as a suite include applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. All Office 2016 suites include the latest versions of the applications, for use on a single PC. Office 2016 is perfect for customers who want to license per PC.
Office 365 includes cloud services, such as Exchange Online hosted email, additional OneDrive (formally known as SkyDrive) storage, Skype™ minutes for home use and Microsoft Teams (formally known as Skype for Business) conferencing. Cloud services are features that are enabled over the Internet. Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2016 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis, annually or monthly. Active subscribers will receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription.
When a subscription ends, customers will receive notification of upcoming expiration in the Office applications. If the Office 365 subscription expires, the applications enter a reduced functionality mode; and you will only be able to view or print existing documents.
The options to continue to use Office will then be:
- Renew by purchasing another 1-year or subscription, or
- Renew with a monthly subscription, or
- Return to using a previous version of Office, if possible, or
- For basic editing, use the free Office Web Apps on OneDrive.
Office 365 ProPlus is a user-based monthly subscription plan offering greater flexibility than the traditional Office Professional Plus by giving each user access to the full version of Office on up to 5 devices including Tablets and other mobile devices. For example, Office 365 ProPlus can be installed on a user’s office computer, a laptop and on a home computer. Additional services such as Exchange, SharePoint and Lync can be added to a subscription at any time. Office 365 ProPlus runs locally on a user’s computer without the need to be connected to the Internet to use it. Please contact us for more information.
