Office 365

Office 365 is the cloud version of Microsoft’s hugely successful email platform and Office suite of products. A range of plans and options is available.


Microsoft Office 365 from Alliance Solutions

As a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider Alliance Solutions can advise you on which of the many Office 365 plans and packages is right for your organisation.

Office 365 is an attractive solution for start-up businesses, who benefit from a per user per month pricing model. For larger companies there is a “tipping-point” where a purchased or leased Exchange Server solution may be more cost effective.

Alliance Solutions will do the number-crunching for you and offer an unbiased view on which is the best solution. Once you’ve made your decision, we can provision the licenses and configure your solution for you.


Office 365 for Business

Office 365 plans are available with a range of options to suit your type of organisation, starting with Office 365 Business and ranging up to Office 365 Enterprise.

The available Plans offer various features and are priced per user. They can typically be paid for by the month or on an annual subscription.

  • Office 365 Business (Max users 300)
  • Office 365 Business Essentials (Max users 300)
  • Office 365 Business Premium (Max users 300)
  • Office 265 Enterprise (ProPlus, E1, E3, E5, K1) (Unlimited users)

Talk to Alliance Solutions about your requirements and we will suggest the right plan.


Hosted Email Only Plans

Exchange Online is available as a standalone service, priced per user, and comes in two plans, both with unlimited users:

  • Exchange Online 1 (50GB storage per user)
  • Exchange Online 2 (unlimited storage)


Office 365 for Charities

Qualified non-profit organisations such as charities can receive Office 365 Nonprofit E1 (unlimited number of licenses) or Office 365 Nonprofit Business Essentials (unlimited number of licenses) free of charge as a donated licence.

Charities can also opt to upgrade to the advanced features in Office 365 at a significant discount:
