INFO: Why choose Office 365 Pro Plus over Office Professional Plus 2013

imageOffice 365 ProPlus offers several advantages compared to Office Professional Plus 2013.

  • Office Professional Plus 2013 uses Windows Installer Package (MSI)-based installation. Office 365 ProPlus uses Click-to-Run installation and software update management.
    With Click-to-Run, you can:

    • Have Office up and running fast—often in under two minutes.
    • Run existing Office 2010, Office 2007, and Office 2003 applications while you install the new Office, so you don’t have to interrupt your users’ work.
    • Keep older versions of Office side by side on your PCs to mitigate any potential file or add-in compatibility risks.
    • Get updates delivered to users without interruption. Updates are cached in the background and the next time a user closes and re-opens the Office application, it is up to date.
  • Office Professional Plus 2013 is connected to the hardware or device it is installed on. Office 365 ProPlus is connected to the user, which offers these advantages:
    • Users can install Office on up to five PCs or Macs concurrently and they will have access to mobile Office experiences across smartphones, tablets, and other devices they use.
    • Your organization may also have the flexibility to treat Office as an operational cost instead of a software asset.
    • If you are implementing a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, Office 365 ProPlus lets you de-activate Office on user-owned devices when people leave the organization, or if their devices are compromised.

Office 365 ProPlus includes all the great Office application experiences you expect, with added flexibility for modern users and IT needs.
