Office 365 Enterprise: Which Plan Meets Your Organization’s Needs?

If you’re already using Microsoft’s services, you know that Microsoft helps you manage your daily tasks and important projects in an organized manner with its easy to use applications and services. Office 365 Enterprise is an all-in-one subscription that takes many of the standalone services and combines them into one package, helping your business excel in productivity.  

Office 365 Enterprise contains three subscription-based plans (E1, E3, and E5), with each subscription catering to your growing or already established enterprise. The E1 plan gives users a basic setup to get their enterprise moving in the right direction, offering features to streamline collaboration. The E3 plan adds additional email and voicemail functionality. Lastly, the E5 plan gives users even more features such as Modern Voice, PTSN Calling and Conferencing, and additional security features that will ensure the safety of your company’s data.  

Features that are included in all plans  

  • Security – Office 365 comes with advanced security measures to ensure your companies data is safe from cyber threats 
  • Privacy – Your emails will not be used by Microsoft in anyway unless it is for security purposes, such as phishing  
  • Admin Features – The admin application allows users to configure options to suit your IT needs. 
  • Automatic updates – All updates will be automatically deployed to all users 
  • Support – 24/7 is available to you for any issues you may face
