Many customers are very confused about the differences between these two products
There are hundreds of different Microsoft licences and they are constantly being changed and renamed!
The simple way we sell it is as follows:
- If you only need Email from a web browser you can use Microsoft 365 P1 (we call this Essentials)
- If you need E-mail and Word, Excel PowerPoint etc. You need Microsoft 365 Business Standard
- If you need enhanced cyber security and the ability to log on to any computer on your network then you need Microsoft 365 Business Premium
So for smaller businesses who need Office apps for their PCs/Macs we generally use Microsoft 365 Business Standard and then once you get beyond 5 users we use premium which is an extra £5 a month. Those people who just need occasional email use the Essentials licence.
