Microsoft is launching a revolutionary electronic licence software solution, and we are delighted to provide this innovative service for you. The Cloud Solution Provider programme enables customers to enjoy flexible monthly subscriptions to Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft OneDrive, and a host of other applications. What benefits does this unique licensing service bring to the corporate environment? Read on to find out more.
The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Programme, or CSP for short, is a relatively new, versatile licensing service that enables customers (businesses, but also individuals) to get flexible subscriptions to Microsoft cloud solutions. These include the popular Office 365, secure OneDrive cloud storage, SharePoint Online, Exchange, Project, Skype for Business and more.
Annual subscriptions to electronic software licences are not always the best answer in the business environment. Due to varying staffing levels and time-sensitive projects, long-term subscriptions (12, 24 or 36 months) may regularly remain unused. You could spend the money spent on these subscriptions better elsewhere. Microsoft CSP solves the situation —you purchase individual software licenses for one month at a time and only extend this "programme lease" when necessary. If a member of staff only uses a programme during the early stages of a project, you can cancel the licence or transfer it to another employee. Has your team expanded to include more staff? Activate new licences in just a few moments!
It's not just cost savings and improved flexibility—you will gain other significant advantages. First of all, you can be sure that you are running the current version of each programme, which gives you peace of mind regarding data security. Combined with Microsoft Certified Cloud Storage, you have the knowledge that you are meeting mandatory GDPR software requirements. All CSP licenses can be managed (activated, transferred, cancelled or renewed) via a single, transparent web interface.
The monthly subscription price for Microsoft CSP is set and fixed for one year!
With the Microsoft OneDrive - Plan 1 Electronic Business License, you receive 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage. You can use it to store all types of data, so you don't have to limit the capacity of your hard or portable drives. 1TB is plenty of room to keep your business plans, diagrams, spreadsheets, databases, documents and other files safe in a proven and secure environment. In just a few clicks, you can quickly share content with your colleagues or business partners. For this reason, OneDrive is the ideal intermediary for teamwork.
A further advantage of OneDrive cloud storage is the online file synchronisation feature. When you make changes to a file, all changes are reflected in almost all other connected devices in near real-time. You can access OneDrive storage from any device (tablets, laptops, desktops, smartphones), and present files created on your home PC on a work tablet or a projector in the office without any overhead. As soon as your storage begins to fill up, you will appreciate the Quick Search feature to get to the file you want in the shortest time possible.
The Microsoft Office 365 Business electronic license includes a monthly subscription to fully installed Office 365 apps for five phones, five tablets, and five computers or Macs. Outlook, Word, Excel, OneNote, and PowerPoint are the cornerstones for creating large documents, reading complex data, building effective communication, and creating engaging presentations. You also get subscriptions to the professional programmes, Publisher and Access (desktops only).
Publisher is a tool designed to create professional, visually sophisticated publications that will no doubt impress your clients. You should bear in mind that demanding software solutions often require powerful database applications. Luckily, Microsoft provides you with Access for creating, adapting and sharing databases. What's more, with the Microsoft Office 365 Business e-license, you also get 1TB of Microsoft OneDrive Cloud Storage for Business for one month. This allows you to conveniently and securely share all files created with Office 365.
For individuals and business customers with higher needs, there is a premium version of the Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium e-license. It offers all the applications and functions of a standard Microsoft Office 365 Business subscription plus three extra apps and services - SharePoint, Exchange, and Teams. So if you are serious about building, protecting and supporting your business, the premium monthly subscription is the best for you.
Microsoft 365 Business offers a convenient monthly subscription to the best office tools on the market to help small and medium-sized businesses increase productivity, security and device management. It includes a complete suite of Office 365 applications and services, including Exchange, SharePoint, Teams and Skype for Business. There is also 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage and an emphasis on security. Advanced protection mechanisms create a secure environment for all your data, both on computers and smartphones. Microsoft 365 Business includes an upgrade to the professional version of the operating system for your desktop or laptop - Windows 10 Pro.
