What is Office 365?
Microsoft Office 365 is a family of business applications that offer essential functionality for the modern workplace. From staple applications such as Word, Excel and Outlook, to more advanced solutions such as Visio and Stream, the around 30 products that make up Office 365 cover practically every business requirement.
Office 365 is provided as cloud software as a service. Where once Microsoft Office was sold as a permanent licence per PC, Office 365 is licenced per user and paid monthly.
This offers several benefits. Organisations can manage licences more easily, removing or transferring licences as staff leave or join. Users can access the applications they need on whatever device they’re working on simply by logging into Office 365 online (you can still download applications onto your PC if you wish). There are no issues with version compatibility – Office 365 always provides users with the latest version. Plus, Office 365 provides users with individual cloud storage via OneDrive.
Different licences provide access to different products. So to ensure you get what you need (and don’t pay for things you don’t) contact Akita for licence guidance.
Microsoft 365 & beyond
Following recent licence changes, many traditional Office 365 licences have been relabelled Microsoft 365 licences. This reflects the much wider range of products on offer in these licences, including SharePoint, Teams, Intune and Azure.
Akita’s services cover the full range of Microsoft 365 applications, as well as advanced solutions such as Dynamics 365 and Power Platform. We’ll be happy to have a chat about how these solutions can enhance your organisation.
Office 365 Migration
Akita has helped hundreds of organisations across London and the South East to embrace the full potential of Office 365.
From those using legacy Microsoft products, to organisations moving away from platforms they’ve outgrown (such as G Suite) we assist organisations in getting the right licences, migrating their data and emails, and providing user training.

Office 365 Consultancy
Along with support and migration, Akita provides Office 365 consultancy services. Typically this involves taking a holistic view of an organisation’s entire Microsoft 365 tenant to ensure maximum value, service and security.
For our large and enterprise-sized customers, simply ensuring their staff are on the right licences can save them thousands of pounds a year in savings and productivity.
We can also provide an in-depth review of the administration, access and security settings of their Microsoft tenants, ensuring staff only see what they’re supposed to and keeping organisational data safe.
