Which Microsoft 365 plan is best for SMB?
Let’s explore and compare each MS 365 plan.
Microsoft 365 Apps for Business
The Microsoft 365 Apps Plan is perfect for small businesses that only want to use the core of Microsoft applications (Office 365) and cloud storage (OneDrive) for basic business work.
It does not include Exchange Online email or any other online services, so this plan would be a good fit for SB that are not interested in switching their email to Microsoft’s servers.
Microsoft 365 Business Basic
Perfect plan for startups and individual entrepreneurs that need easy remote solutions. You will have access to the entire Office suite of applications, Microsoft Teams, and secure cloud storage.
This plan does not included desktop versions so you will have to use the web-browser or mobile versions instead. By not including the desktop versions, you don’t need to have a high-end device to work.
Microsoft 365 Business Standard
The Microsoft 365 Standard plan combines collaboration tools as well as the full suite of Office 365 programs. With the Basic plan you get the desktop version for each program, so you can install them on different devices. This allows you to work from anywhere without intrrupting your workflow.
This plan is perfect for companies that have embraced hybrid work and need the suite of applications to keep their operations up and running no matter their location. You can get it for an monthly fee per user of USD $12.50.
Microsoft 365 Business Premium
The Microsoft 365 Premium plan, compared to the Standard, adds 2 key elements: Intune and Azure Active Directory P1. These programs help your business reach a new level of collaborative work by promoting device management, data storage and cyberthreath protection offered by the Microsoft cloud.
