In their infinite wisdom Microsoft decided to create dozens of different packages for Office 365, leading to confusion when deciding which route to go down.
To simplify it there are three main options:
1.) Office 365 Business Essentials – this is the license for a mailbox only.
2.) Office 365 Business – this is the license for the Office products only (Word, Excel etc)
3.) Office 365 Business Premium – this is the license for both a mailbox and the Office products.
If you have an in house Exchange server then option 2 is the best bet for a subscription for just the Office applications. Or for smaller companies who don’t have their own mail server then Options 1 or 3, depending on if you already have a full license for the Office applications.
