Office 365 Business vs Business Premium vs Business Essentials

If you have less than 300 employees, Microsoft has a series of Office 365 plans known as the “Business” editions.

They contain the most basic Office 365 features at a reasonable price.

Introduction to Office365 Business Essentials

The Basics

It’s pretty simple. Most people only need to answer two questions in order to choose between Office 365 Business, Business Premium, or Business Essentials:

  1. Do you want to install the Office applications on your computer, or access them online-only?
    (The major reason for wanting to install them is to facilitate remote work.)
  2. Do you need an email & calendar?

Office 365 Business

Office 365 Business is right for you if your answers were:

  1. Install Applications
  2. No Email Required

Office 365 Business allows you to use programs like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on your desktop computer, but it does not provide you with an email address. It is also the only plan that doesn’t include Teams, SharePoint, Skype for Business (now included in Teams), or Yammer, so keep that in mind as well.
