C Spire Business Solutions Now Offers Office 365


Technology firm’s partnership with Microsoft offers businesses flexibility, security of cloud services

Ridgeland, Miss. (May 30, 2017) – C Spire Business Solutions is making it easier than ever before for business owners to take advantage of cloud-based solutions with the introduction of Microsoft Office 365 from C Spire, a suite of flexible, secure business tools that help firms deftly manage their productivity and collaboration needs.

With Office 365 and C Spire communications products, users can conveniently get all of their services from one provider, regardless of whether they need wireless, Internet, network security, Voice over IP or productivity software. Both business and enterprise packages are available with a variety of features and price points, according to Brian Caraway, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Markets.

“As mobile workforces expand, businesses recognize the value of cloud-based applications and the need for employees to access them remotely via a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops,” Caraway said. According to a recent study by Constant Contact, 66 percent of these types of firms rely on mobile devices to manage operations.

Office 365 from C Spire responds to this trend by offering a cloud-based software solution that gives businesses tools to boost productivity, control costs and enhance security virtually anywhere access is needed, including:

  • Professional email and calendar sharing with Exchange online
  • Microsoft Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and OneDrive and other popular productivity tools
  • File sharing and document management

In addition, Office 365 offers:

  • Availability for businesses of all sizes
  • Ability for business owners to focus on their core business instead of IT tasks
  • A cost-efficient, right-sized, all-in-one solution

“Office 365 provides access to the business tools firms rely on to win in a competitive marketplace,” Caraway said. “Our products are optimized with superior capabilities, reliability and security that customers expect from a technology leader and our award-winning local support teams provide a seamless communications experience unavailable anywhere else.”

Pricing begins at $6 per month per user for Office 365 Business Essentials1, which includes 1 TB of cloud storage, Exchange Online and web versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and OneDrive and $15 per month per user for Business Premium, which also includes desktop versions of Office applications along with Outlook, Access and Publisher.
