Office 365 is Microsoft’s newest cloud-based subscription platform that gives users access to business class applications and e–mail. Office 365 encompasses all your usual office applications including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and many more that you might not have heard of.

Each licence from Office 365 gives the user 1TB of online storage through OneDrive, which is enough to store up to 2 million photos.

SMEs that utilise Office 365 to it’s full protentional can save having to buy costly on-premise servers or storage.
