Maximising Value from Your Microsoft 365 Subscription: Are You Getting the Full Benefit?


27th February, 2024

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, leveraging the full suite of tools and services your Microsoft 365 Business Premium subscription offers is more crucial than ever. As an MSP and Microsoft Partner, CommArc has observed a common trend: numerous organisations are not tapping into the comprehensive range of features their subscriptions encompass, thereby not receiving the best value for their investment. It prompts a significant question: Are you fully utilising your Microsoft 365 subscription, or could a licensing review lead you to a treasure trove of untapped resources?

The Untapped Potential of Microsoft 365 Business Premium

Microsoft 365 Business Premium is a powerhouse, designed to cater to the diverse needs of modern businesses. It combines the best of Office applications with powerful cloud services, device management, and advanced security. However, it's not uncommon for organisations to stick to the services they are familiar with, such as Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, leaving many of the advanced features underutilised.

Features You Might Be Overlooking:

Microsoft Teams: Beyond video conferencing, Teams serves as a central hub for collaboration, integrating seamlessly with Office apps and providing a platform for chat, calls, meetings, and file sharing.

SharePoint: An invaluable tool for creating websites, storing, organising, sharing, and accessing information from any device. Yet, many businesses underuse its potential for intranet sites and document management.

OneDrive for Business: Offers significant storage and sharing capabilities, yet its potential for collaboration and secure file sharing often goes unnoticed.

Advanced Security Features: Features such as Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), data loss prevention, and multi-factor authentication provide critical layers of security that are often under-deployed.

The Modern Workspace and Microsoft 365

Embracing Microsoft 365 is not just about utilising a set of tools; it's about creating a modern workspace that fosters collaboration, enhances productivity, and ensures security. A modern workspace enables teams to work from anywhere, on any device, securely. It's about breaking down the barriers of traditional office environments and embracing digital transformation. Microsoft 365's comprehensive suite supports this transformation, offering tools that facilitate communication, collaboration, and creativity, all within a secure digital ecosystem.

Why a Licensing Review is Essential

Despite the best intentions, many businesses find themselves on a Microsoft 365 plan that doesn't align with their current needs or growth trajectory. A licensing review can uncover inefficiencies in your current subscription, identifying opportunities to downgrade, upgrade, or switch plans to better match your organisational requirements and budget constraints. Additionally, it can reveal unused components of your current plan that could add value to your operations without additional cost.
