Office 2019 FAQ

Yes, Office 2019 will be available via perpetual license or through an Office 365 subscription. Our recommendation is always to get the Office 365 subscription as it is always up to date, you can install on multiple devices, and get 1TB of OneDrive storage.

Both Office Professional Plus 2019 and Office 365 ProPlus deliver the same application experiences. Both include Word 2019, Excel 2019, PowerPoint 2016, OneNote 2019, Outlook 2019, Publisher 2019, and Access 2019. However, Office Professional Plus 2019 is a traditional Office installation that is tied to the computers it is installed on, and it is available through volume licensing only. A user-based service, Office 365 ProPlus is available as a subscription.

Both include Word, Excel PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote and Publisher. In addition to these, Office 365 Business also includes Office Online, One Drive for Business with 1 TB Storage and Sway.

Commercial use rights for Office 2019 come with the purchase of:

  • A commercial SKU as part of a volume licensing program.
  • A qualifying Office 365 plan.
  • Office Home & Business 2019.

Software/services that do not come with commercial use rights may not be used for commercial, non-profit, or revenue-generating activities. This applies to Office apps on smartphones and tablets, as well as desktop clients.

Users who log in with a Microsoft Account to edit Office files on any device for work or business purposes would be out of compliance. Users must sign in with their Office 365 Org ID to be compliant. The best way for Enterprise customers to ensure their employees are in compliance is to provide their users with a qualifying Office 365 commercial plan.

Why would I choose Office 365 over Office 2013?

Office 365 Business Offers several advantages compared to Office 2013.

Office Professional Plus 2013 uses Windows Installer Package (MSI)-based installation Office 365 uses Click-to-Run installation and software update management. With Click-to-Run, you can:

  • Have Office up and running fast-often in under two minutes.
  • Run existing Office 2010, Office 2007, and Office 2003 applications while you install the new Office, so you don’t have to interrupt your users work.
  • Keep older versions of Office side by side on your PDs to mitigate any potential file or add-in compatibility risks.
  • Get updates delivered to users without interruption. Updates are cached in the background and the next time a user closes and re-opens the Office application, it is up to date.
  • Office 2016 is connected to the hardware or device it is installed on. Office 365 is connected to the user, which offers these advantages:
  • Users can install Office on up to five PCs or Macs concurrently and they will have access to mobile Office experiences across smartphones, tablets, and other devices they use.
  • Your organization may also have the flexibility to treat office as an operational cost instead of a software asset.
  • If you are implementing a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, Office365 lets you de-activate Office on user-owned devices when people leave the organization, or if their devices are compromised.
  • You can use Office on iPad, iPhone, Android phone

Office 365 includes all the great Office application experiences you expect, with added flexibility for modern users and IT needs.
