Office 365 Monthly Subscriptions from HardSoft

Add your choice of Microsoft Office 365 subscriptions to your order

The trend is towards subscription of Microsoft Office. The HardSoft methodology of subscription selling of Mac’s and PC’s fits naturally into this adoption of Office 365 subscription services. Microsoft Office is to transition to a new version in the later part of 2018 to Office 2019. Only customers on Office 365 Business/Business Premium will get the upgrade free as part of the available downloads. Our clients who take perpetual licences will not have access to this new version without extra cost.

The most popular option is Office 365 ‘Business’ which includes up to date downloads to the latest Office 2016/2019 software across all multiple platforms including Windows, Mac, Mobile, etc. Each User is licensed to use the software on up to five different devices they use. For additional cost ‘Business Premium’ adds 50GB of Microsoft Exchange/Outlook features of Business Essentials and is essentially a bundle of all features.

Licences can be reassigned to other users as employees change just as you can on a Microsoft Open license. Payments are by direct debit and are paid monthly by direct debit for a minimum 12 months. This direct debit is a separate direct debit to that of the lease of your PC or Mac. This gives you the ability to add and even reduce your subscription costs going forwards. Additional licences ordered can be included individually and the direct debit is amended accordingly. At the end of the 12 month period we (and Microsoft directly) will confirm a renewal and the direct debit will continue.

Prices include 365 support and maintenance and HardSoft will be appointed by Microsoft as the ‘Partner of Record’ for your licensing. By being the Microsoft Digital Partner of Record for the subscription we will be able to assist with deploying and re-assigning Office 365 as well as advice on usage and potential issues.

There is a choice of Office 365 products and we have enhanced a couple with our own bundles (& More) that give better value by including discounted versions of AVAST Anti-Virus and daily Cloud Backup Click here for our downloadable PDF Any queries then please contact the HardSoft team who all have extensive knowledge and will be happy to help you choose.
