Microsoft 365 is a subscription-based service that provides Office applications and cloud-based services monthly or annually. There are many different subscription plans – for home users, small and medium businesses, large companies, schools, and non-profit organizations. Some of these plans include traditional Office applications (such as Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) that you install on your computer – others do not. It is important to note that Office 365 offers web-based access to traditional applications (such as Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) and a wide variety of other web-based applications and services, such as Teams, Yammer, Stream, Sway, and many more.
All Office 365 plans include up to 1 TB of cloud storage, Office Online (web-based versions of Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint), the full functionality of Office mobile apps, continuous updates of new features, security fixes and continuous technical support.
- You don’t have to pay in advance; you can spread the cost.
- You can align the cost of Office to the actual number of employees you have at any time. If people are joining, leaving, or temporarily working, you can provide Office as needed.
- Each user can Install Office on 5 devices.
- You have a much richer offering with numerous cloud-based tools that enable a new way of working, online and mobile Office applications, and continuous updates with innovative new functionality.
Office 2019 is (currently) the latest version of the “traditional” Office suite, after Office 2016. It is sold as a one-time purchase, with a single prepayment for a PC or Mac, and you can stay forever. Office 2019 includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook and is Valid for home or business use. There is no option to upgrade when the next version is released, you will need to purchase it at full price.
Although Office 2019 users do not receive features updates, they will receive frequent stability and security updates, in addition to 5 years of conventional support.
- You pay only once and it’s yours forever. If all you need is Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, and Word, it will be much cheaper, in the long run, to have the license and not sign up. For example, Office 2019 Home & Business currently costs USD 249.99. If you compare this to Office 365 Home (which is one of the cheapest Office 365 subscription plans.), It costs 10.00 USD/month (If you only want to confirm one month at a time). That means, after two years, you’ve covered the cost of Office 2019 – and it’s yours forever.
- If you are not using Microsoft services for email, collaboration, and communications, cloud storage, etc. and all you want are the “traditional” Office applications on your PC’s or Mac’s, Office 2019(office.com/setup) is a better option, as it is not so rigid.
- You don’t have to worry about continually training your employees on new features, as feature updates are not provided.
