Microsoft 365 Cloud Software

Microsoft 365 Cloud Partner Services

Direct access to Tier 1&2 support Ontario, Canada

TwinBytes Inc is a Microsoft Cloud Partner which means we can not only provide you with all the Microsoft Cloud services available online, but we are your Tier 1 support with direct VIP access to Tier2.  This is important because when you call Microsoft you never know who you’re going to get outside our Country.  Also many times they take too long to solve an issue going by the book because they force you to go their Tier 1 and Tier 2 before getting to advanced support.  With TwinBytes as your Cloud Service provide, you can skip all that and jump straight to expert support saving you time and frustration.  Also, no thick accents from overseas techs on the phone.  You are speaking with a local tech who can come onsite if necessary.

We know time is money and you can’t afford to be stuck on a lengthy phone call, so you can send us a simple email or leave a message for us to look into the issue and we can get back to you.  Because our client base is smaller and more manageable than Microsoft’s, we have more of a personal relationship with our clients rather than treat you like a number.

Here’s a list of some of the Microsoft online products we can offer, their prices and explanations. Also, feel free to call us to learn more about Microsoft Cloud services.

Microsoft Office 365

What is 365?  It is the same Office software you’re used to, with the main difference being a subscription based product rather than one time purchase.  This includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher & Access.  The benefit is it’s always up to date, 365 days a year, hence the name.  So you are never having to drop $520 for the Professional edition every 8-10 years for a new product which by that time is completely out of date.

The cost’s depend on the various types of Office you can purchase which you can download here, but we will go based on the more popular Office 365 Business which allows you to install it on your computer and have access in the cloud.

$14.67/month per user from TwinBytes (Month to month – cancel anytime).  Note, the lower prices you find online are 1 year commitment.
This gives you access to install this on up to 5 computers or tablets.
If you consider the maximum support life of any Office software suite is 5 years, and that’s if you purchased it right from the date it came out and you use it right up until the day it expires and becomes urgent to switch which is not realistic; that would be $14.67 x 12 months x 5 years = $880.20
Compare that price to Office 2021 Professional being $569 x 2 computers = $1,138.

So if you have only one computer, you’re paying $311.20 extra over 5 years being on Office 365.
Unless you go with the Family edition linked below, for $109/year for 2-6 people, you’re really saving with Office 365, depending how many people, but we’re talking about businesses here which can save money with 365, but personal use can save even more.  So Microsoft is really pushing for subscriptions.

If you’re using 2 computers, you’re saving the difference of $257.80 over 5 years, not to mention, you can still install this on 3 more devices meaning you’d save $1,964 over 5 years!
Remember the bonus that you are not only saving money but you are paying monthly so better cash flow which everyone can benefit from.

Office 365 Family for personal use can be $109/year for 2-6 people.
Office 365 Apps for Business direct from Microsoft is $11.70/month per device.
*NOTE: If you’d rather pay more to have the month to month option and support directly from TwinBytes, then please contact us to confirm current pricing and setup an account.

This used to make more sense when Office software was supported for 10 years, but now we only have 5 years support life before you are forced to upgrade again, making Office 365 more competitively priced.

Yes, you can still purchase Microsoft Office stand alone versions for a one time purchase.  Check our page here for direct links to purchase from Microsoft and the EOL info.

That was just a focus primarily on money savings, but even if it cost more, there are so many more benefits to Office 365 including:

  • Better cash flow (Monthly payments instead a big payment all at once every 8-9 years)
  • Up to date regularly with minor and major updates whenever a new version comes out rather than hang onto it until becomes unsupported
  • Online version of Office
  • 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage
  • many more features and benefits all listed in attached list depending on which version you get.
