2. Choosing an Office 365 Plan > Office Professional Plus

Office Professional Plus

Office Professional Plus is a subscription to the best version of Microsoft Office. The subscription is included in the price of Plans E3 and E4 and is available as an add-on for all other subscriptions, including Plan P1. This version has all the bells and whistles, including Microsoft Access and Microsoft Publisher (which is great for newsletters and brochures) and is available only through volume licensing. You can’t walk down to your local office supply store and buy this version of Office. The closest commercial equivalent is Microsoft Office Professional, which retails for $499 for one user on two PCs or $349 for one PC on the Microsoft site.

Many small businesses would like to use the latest version of Office, but the up-front costs of buying the software for all the systems can be daunting. Should you buy a version of Microsoft Office outright or pay a monthly subscription fee for Microsoft Office Professional Plus? This question is especially pressing for current users of Microsoft Office 2003 because Office 365 does not work with Office 2003. You must upgrade, but to what?
