Microsoft recognises that to keep ahead in today’s fast-paced business world you need to be able to work anywhere, any time and on any device.
Combining their familiar Office Desktop Suite with Cloud-based versions of their next-generation communications and collaboration services, key Office 365 components include Microsoft Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Office Online, and Skype for Business Online. Promising 99.9% uptime and the ability to deploy Office applications across multiple PCs, Laptops and Mobile devices, true “anywhere” access has never been so easy.
Office 365 Business plans are focused specifically at addressing the core needs of SME organisations (<300 users), whilst Enterprise Plans are available to an unlimited number of users, supporting more advanced use cases. Customers are free to migrate between tiers and to mix and match users across plans to suit individual needs. Office 365 plans are provided as a subscription service on a ‘per user, per month’ basis, with a wide variety of service options available to support your plan, depending on your requirements.
Office 365 Deployment via Blue Chip
Blue Chip have always been at the forefront in recommending Office 365 in conjunction with both our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform and to on-premise customers seeking to introduce efficiencies and leading-edge technologies into their businesses. We have a wealth of experience in deploying and maximising the use of Office 365 across all three major revisions of the product (BPOS, wave 14 and wave 15).
Blue Chip offer three tiers of fixed price Office 365 deployment – Bronze, Silver and Gold – depending on the level of assistance needed. As a Gold Microsoft Partner, we work closely with both Microsoft and the customer to reduce risk and minimise disruption, and at Blue Chip we endeavour to provide a structured, planned and thoroughly-executed migration, ensuring a smooth and structured transition to Office 365.
Office 365 is also offered via the Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) Program. Available to both Cloud and on-premise customers, benefits of licensing from Blue Chip through the CSP Program include a reduced price and a single bill for all Cloud Services, affording flexibility and scalability to change your consumption as needed.
