Office 365... how much?
We have been quoted 35K pa for our school. That is a bit on the steep side. How do other schools manage to do it. The free version seems rather limited. it says about reading and modifying of files but nothing about creation of files. No Access in free version. What about Sims? You need office locally installed iirc. There does seem to be a lack of information about licensing for this product. How does it work when your internet is hammered as ours is maxed out about 50% of the time
We'll gladly offer a like-for-like, drop us a PM if you wish.
35k pa! Stuff that.
You may be better off getting your licences under EES - about £35 pa for every staff member who uses a computer - and using the free O365 package for your email etc.. That's what we do, and you can install Office 2013 on site and have it hook into the OneDrive/SharePoint platform just as effectively as the full O365 install. Not sure there's actually any functional difference between Office 2013 and locally installed Office 365 other than the activation method anyway.
Also - free version does let you create documents, spreadsheets and PowerPoints. No Access, granted, but if you EES you'll get Office ProPlus which is every Office program ever made.
^^Save for Visio (may be others - Sharepoint is obviously the client version only).
What do you want in the paid for version you don't get in the free version?
