With Microsoft Office 365, you can access your files from any device, anywhere, whether it’s at home, work, school, the train, the beach wherever you find an Internet connection. This means you’ll never miss an important email or deadline again!

You can invite colleagues to view and edit your files, and you can even set permissions so only certain people can see what others are doing.

Common questions asked about Microsoft Office 365

There’s a lot to choose from with Microsoft 365, so let’s get down to business.

Firstly it’s really easy to upgrade and downgrade licences our end so don’t worry about getting the right licence right from the start as we can switch on the Microsoft 365 platform in minutes and we’ll take care of the migration of all the data.

If you’re looking for email, cloud documents and for your team to collaborate on thoose documents (often with multiple editing a file at once) then start off with Microsoft 365 Business Basic.

If you need email, cloud documents, team collaboration and the Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook etc then you’ll need Microsoft 365 Business Standard, Microsoft 365 Business Standard is by far the most popular Microsoft 365 licence available and so this might be your best starting point for you and your team.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium (£15.10 per license per month) is the best productivity solution for businesses with under 300 users.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium offers superior features compared to Basic or Standard providing businesses with advanced security and compliance features.

There’s a few different options when it comes to Microsoft 365 Business licenses. In fact maybe too many to mention here (though we’d be happy to answer any questions, just give us a call) in a nutshell, for most businesses it comes down to either.

Microsoft 365 Business Basic

Most common for “on-the-road” staff such as sales guys or subcontractors that need access to your companies emails / files.

This licence offers many Microsoft features such as Exchange emails, contacts, calendars, OneDrive, Sharepoint and Teams without the Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.

Microsoft 365 Business Standard

Most common for inhouse staff.

This licence offers all as above but with the Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. This is the most common licence we sell to clients.

As mentioned above there are many many Microsoft 365 options from self-employed sole traders right up to enterprise organisations with 1,000’s of staff. Microsoft 365 really is the best email and cloud productivity product around, and deployed right Microsoft 365 will allow your business to thrive.

Nothing, Microsoft rebranded in 2020, Office 365 is now Microsoft 365.

There’s many different options, but the two main options Microsoft 365 Business Standard is £9.40 net per month per user, and Microsoft 365 Business Basic is £3.80 net per user per month.

Microsoft 365 Business Standard is by far the most popular option.

We have over 170 clients using Microsoft 365. Aurora Tech Support manage everything from onboarding new starters and offboarding leavers in our clients businesses to the security of the entire platform.

Such as making sure that only secure logins are allowed, making sure that only certain devices can access data, making sure only certain countries can access data, warning users of any potentially unsafe emails. Microsoft 365 for Business really is the best way to secure your business data because of all the security and auditing features it offers.

The majority of the Microsoft 365 for Business tenants we support are in Leeds, London, Wetherby, York, Otley, Windermere, Kendal, Ambleside and the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. This is largely because of our focus in thoose areas in truth, we do however offer Microsoft 365 support UK wide. From our base of oporations in Leeds we manage all our Microsoft 365 clients tenants.

The nature of Microsoft 365 being a cloud product is we can setup, migrate, support and maintain a Microsoft 365 install from anywhere in the world.

So if your business needs migrating to Microsoft 365 or if you have a current Microsoft 365 tenant but would like to speak about getting the security and tenat set up properly give us a call. For over 20 years we’ve provided Leeds Office 365 support and now provide Office 365/Microsoft 365 support to the whole country not just Leeds. We even have some Microsoft 365/Office 365 clients in Europe.

A question we get asked all the time is can I use my current domain name (i.e. with Microsoft 365 and the answer is absolutely you can yes.

We can make changes to your current registrar (i.e. GoDaddy, 123reg) to add the domain name to Microsoft 365 without affecting any other services such as websites etc.

We’ve done this for over 150 businesses in Yorkshire and beyond.

Give us a call and we can get your exisiting (or even a new) domain set up on Microsoft 365 in the hour.

There’s two plans that we would recommend having a look at. The first is Microsoft 365 Exchange Plan 1. This is purely Microsoft 365 emails for your business.

Or if you’d like emails and the web versions of the Office apps including OneDrive, Sharepoint and Teams we would recommend Microsoft Business Basic.

The short answer is probably not, Microsoft have data centres all over the world and redundancy built in to the Microsoft 365 platform.

However… it could be. Click here to find out if Microsoft 365 is currently online.
