Which Office365 Plan to Subscribe for?


Sometimes, It becomes more difficult to decide on which Office365 Plan to go for, It is completely depends on the requirement and anything missed on this will inquire unnecessary cost to the company.

Lets Consider, If customer has specific requirement about his Legal Compliance features (Data Loss Prevention, In-Place and Litigation hold) or Voice Mail and Third party fax integration, You can suggest any Enterprise Plans, this is the major difference between Business and enterprise plans. Remember “Archiving” is included only in Enterprise can be add-on for other plans.

Below is the mandatory checklist to be gathered before we acquire new Office 365 customers:

  1. How big the organization is?
  2. How many users are required?
  3. What is current environment? Exchange Version, Google, POP/IMAP etc.
  4. If current environment from Existing Office365, What is the current subscription? & has it         purchased from Microsoft (or) Partners?
  5. Do they have Office Installed? Which Outlook version?
  6. Do customer require advanced compliance features, like DLP, Encryption etc.

Note: Outlook 2003 is not supported to work with Office365, Outlook 2007 SP3 or later is supported.
