What are the real differences between Office Pro Plus and Office 365 Pro Plus?

Office Pro Plus – is the version that is sold in volume licensing.  It is the default package when purchasing under an EA agreement, Select, or new Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA). 

Office 365 Pro Plus – is the version that is sold via Office 365.  Subscriptions for Office 365 can either be purchased directly from the web portal or on a traditional licensing agreement like an Enterprise Agreement, Select, or new MPSA.  It frequently is sold as part of the E3 or E4 packages.  

While the majority of the features between the software packages are the same, there are some key differences to think about when you are making your purchase.

Simultaneous Editing in Office 365

Simultaneous Editing in Office 365

With simultaneous editing in Office 365 your employees can save time by working together on the same document and can easily bounce ideas off of each other. In the past, employees would have to email the file and keep updating it as they made changes. Now they can make all the changes on the same document avoiding countless emails back and forth. This synthesizes all the work onto the same document, so there is no longer multiple versions of the same document.

For example, your team can work in Web Apps for a collaborative working meeting to get a shared project done. If someone on your team isn't available that teammate can chose to make revisions whenever he's able to. His changes will sync up to the document stored in the cloud when he saves. Even if he is offline, his changes will sync back up to the cloud when he gets back online. What are you waiting for? Start collaborating now!
