Microsoft 365 is here!

Introducing Microsoft really is very good!

Microsoft are moving away from the traditional OVS on premise licensing. Pricing for new licenses and renewals will be going up from 1st July and functionality will be reduced. Now is the time to be looking into their new solutions as they can save you money and improve your experience...and I'm not just saying that!

The Microsoft 365 for education package is Microsoft's new cloud based solution that is recommended for schools. It empowers teachers to unlock creativity, promote teamwork, and provide a simple and safe experience in a single, affordable solution built for education. 

The package provides you with 4 keys things:

  • Enterprise mobility and security (InTune for controlling devices, advanced threat protection)
  • Windows 10S
  • Minecraft: Education Edition with Code Builder

Nottinghamshire County Council’s partner, Think IT is our preferred route for schools Microsoft licensing because they’re a DfE recommended procurement framework for education and a Microsoft Tier 1 provider. Because Think IT understand Microsoft Licensing, and what schools need, this means they can help you’ll get the right licences at great pricing, with excellent support and customer service.”
