Microsoft 365 Plan Chooser

If you find spreadsheets overwhelming, why not give the Microsoft 365 plan chooser a try? This interactive webpage will ask you a series of six brief questions about:

  • The size of your company
  • Your work style
  • Collaboration preferences
  • Information protection requirements
  • Device management needs
  • Threat protection concerns

Based on your responses, it will provide tailored recommendations that align with your specific requirements. For instance, if you are:

  • A small business operating from an office
  • In need of email and file accessibility from anywhere
  • Not dealing with sensitive information or requiring remote device wiping
  • Not particularly worried about advanced cyber threats (although it’s important for everyone to be cautious!)

In such a scenario, Microsoft 365 Business Standard is suggested as the ideal suite for you.

Feature Matrix

If you’re interested in comparing the feature variations among different versions of the same suite (such as Microsoft 365 Business Basic, Standard, and Premium) or if you’re curious about the distinctions between Office 365 Enterprise E3 and Microsoft 365 Enterprise E3, you can utilize the Feature Matrix.

The Feature Matrix allows you to choose the suites you wish to compare and displays their features side by side, enabling you to easily understand what you will receive – or won’t receive – with each option.
