Microsoft launched its 'new Office' 365 for Business products.

Microsoft has released its Office 365 Small Business Premium edition -- the online version of Microsoft's suite of office productivity tools with a focus on online collaboration, reports CNET. Microsoft has added three new packages to its Office 365 line-up for businesses: Office 365 ProPlus, Office 365 Midsize and Office 365 Small Business Premium.

New Office 365 versions will be of certain importance:

Office 365 Small Business Premium. This is aimed at small businesses with 1 to 10 employees and no IT staff. Pricing is $150 per user per year, or about $12.50 per user per month.

Office 365 Midsized Business. This is planned for medium-sized businesses with 10 to 250 employees and dedicated IT staff. It provides the full Office Professional Plus 2013 suite of applications, simplified IT tools, Active Directory (AD) integration, a web-based administration console, and phone support.

Office 365 Professional Plus (ProPlus). This cloud-installable version of Office 2013 uses Microsoft’s App-V-based Click-to-Run technologies to blast the suite onto users’ PCs in just minutes while maintaining the full deployment and management capabilities of previous-generation, MSI-based Office installs. It includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, InfoPath, Access, and Lync, and is licensed for use on as many as five PCs/devices (currently Windows devices and Macs). Included with many Office 365 subscriptions, Office 365 ProPlus is also available as a standalone offering for $144 per user per year.

With this launch, the new Office and Office 365 products and services are fully available, Microsoft says. The new Office 365 services are available today in 69 markets and 17 languages, with an additional 20 markets and 16 languages coming in the second quarter.
