An upgrade to Office 365 (see above) with a host of additional features and money saving opportunities compared with third-party applications.
Microsoft 365 Business extends Office 365, by providing SMEs with a range of additional features including Windows 10 Pro, security management features, employee scheduling, customer bookings, CRM, invoicing, mobile device management (MDM), email marketing, collaboration, cloud storage, security and more. The advantage of this upgrade is that this is a platform that businesses and their employees are already familiar with, while in many cases it removes the need for many third-party software solutions.
Some businesses will already have Office 365 Business Premium and there are no plans for this to be removed. Importantly however, what Office 365 Business Premium lacks that the newer solution includes is mobile device management (MDM), Windows 10 enhancements, and security management for both information and employees. The three primary defining features of Microsoft 365 Business are the administrative dashboard, the business centre and the inclusion of additional applications included in the subscription fee.
