How Much Does Microsoft Office 365 Cost and Will It Work With Microsoft Dynamics GP?


Email | Print

Microsoft recently announced the beta release of Microsoft Office 365, the software giant's latest online offering.  This release is essentially a repackaging and rebranding of Microsoft's Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) with some notable additions.

This new release will be significant for businesses, particularly those with Microsoft Dynamics GP.  The upcoming Office 365 release means that your business will be more efficient, and performance will be more streamlined than ever before.

Office 365 consists of four tools: Office Professional Plus (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Web Apps, and OnNote), Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Lync Online, all for $24 per user, per month.  These features allow businesses to take their office work wherever they go, combining familiar on-premise software with powerful and mobile cloud-based applications.

Microsoft Dynamics GP has strong integration with Microsoft Office, making it easy to report and present the data and analysis you gather from your ERP.  For example, PowerPivot for Excel gives users the ability to create mash-ups of data from Dynamics GP, Dynamics CRM, and other sources, leveraging Excel's power to create visually stunning graphs and charts of your business metrics.

Take that functionality and share it online, regardless of where you happen to be, and you suddenly have a working ERP solution that is not limited by proximity.  Microsoft Office 365 will take businesses one step closer to full integration between on-premise and online applications, which is a critical step for an increasingly globalized society and economy.
