Office 365 – You Can Still Run a Local Installation

Posted on: December 23rd, 2013 by Mark Seeba


Move your office suite into the cloud with Office 365 with a local software installation

Many of the Office 365 business, non-profit and government plans give you the ability to run the software locally on each user’s PC. What you get is the ability to download and install Office Professional on your users’ computers with local running versions of:

  • WordOffice 365 Local Installation
  • Excel
  • Power Point
  • Outlook
  • One Note
  • Access
  • Publisher
  • Lync

Local access to files

You can elect to store your files locally to have access to them when you are not connected, or in the cloud where they are always available to you when you are connected.

The best of both worlds

With the right plan, Office 365 is both cloud based and locally installed, giving you the best of both worlds. You can use the local installation just as you have in the past without having to access cloud storage or services once the software is installed. However, if you lose access to your local computer but still need to access the applications, they are always available in the cloud if you need them. Cloud only versions of the service are available for those not needing a local installation and are quite robust yet very affordable.

Install on more than one PC

With each Office 365 user license on many of the Microsoft plans you get the ability to install the software on up to 5 PC / Mac computers for each of your users. This gives you enormous flexibility for users who need access on a greater number of devices at no additional cost.

Additional applications are available

If you have the need for additional Office applications like Visio and Project, you can add them to many of the available plans, and they too can be run locally.
