When buying a new device, you should always remember to buy a suitable Microsoft Office licence, because without the world’s most popular productivity software, you won’t be able to get the most out of your purchase. Those who want to collaborate in real-time with their teams from various locations, create modern documents and presentations and receive regular support cannot do without Office.
Several versions of Office products are available. For those who prefer to buy their products rather than rent them and aren’t ready to move their corporate data into the cloud, there’s Office Home and Business 2019. If you want to always be up-to-date and work across devices, Microsoft 365 Business Standard is for you. The path you and your company take is entirely up to you. You also have the freedom to choose your quantities. Small companies in particular often don’t need a large numbers of licences. Sometimes, just the one will do. That’s why Microsoft also offers individual licences for the Office version of your choice.
You don’t always need to buy licences for the entire business. If you are looking to install Microsoft Office on fewer than five devices, individual licences are often the fastest and most affordable option. There are four good reasons for that:
You have a new device without a licence.
Bought a PC or Mac without an Office licence? Or are you looking to make a purchase? Then invest in Office to get the most out of your new device.
You have a device with an old licence.
Have a device with an Office version that’s no longer supported? Want to get your hands on new features? Then upgrade today!
You don’t want a volume contract (yet).
Small businesses often don’t want to sign up to volume contracts as a handful of single licences will often be plenty.
You want to test Office out.
Never used Office before? Want to try out the new features on a device? Then an individual licence is exactly what you need.
On 13/10/2020 Microsoft ended support for Office 2010. After more than a decade, there will no longer be any regular updates and patches. Time for an upgrade.
Life is easier when you know how things work. Whole generations have grown up with Microsoft and you won’t have to change a thing with the new Office versions.
Considerably simplified team collaboration, easy-to-integrate modern cloud features and new transitions and charts bring your presentations to life.
The Office version you choose depends on the size of your company and the required degree of digitalisation. With Office Home and Business 2019, you buy the software once and can install it on once device. For businesses with fewer than 25 employees, not looking to move completely into the cloud and who aren’t interested in subscription models, this can be the perfect option. On the other hand, employees regularly working from various devices, who need to keep them all synced, tend to choose Microsoft 365 Business Standard. The subscription model enables fast-growing start-ups in particular to plan better and scale more easily.
