All this from just £45.60 per user, per month* including the Microsoft 365 Business subscription.
If you have users who need Office and email but don’t need the Hosted Desktop then the Microsoft 365 Business plan on its own is just £15.10 per month.
If not all these features are required then the Office 365 Business Premium plan at £9.40 per month may be best for the local only users, although this can’t be used on the Hosted Desktop, but you can mix and match your subscriptions with Office 365.
Hosted Desktops from Your Office Anywhere will run on the following:
Windows PC, Laptop or Tablet e.g. Surface
All you need is a free Microsoft Remote Desktop Client which will be available from the app stores. The client set up is very simple.
Shared Computer Activation
Running Office 365 on a Hosted Desktop requires an Enterprise feature called Shared Computer Activation (SCA). This is also required if you want to run Office 365 on a local computer where different people log on to it, such as shift workers or a warehouse computer.
SCA is available in Office 365 ProPlus, E3, E5 plans as well as Microsoft 365 Business. If you need both Office applications and Email then Microsoft 365 Business is the cheapest plan. However, if you don’t need email then the simple Office 365 ProPlus plan at £11.50 will save you £3.60, although there are fewer features.
Please visit this page for a breakdown of features in Office 365 plans suitable for a Hosted Desktop.
