Infinitely Virtual Offers Microsoft Office 2013 in the Cloud, Maintains Bundled and Ala Carte Pricing
SANTA MONICA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Global business literally runs on Microsoft (News - Alert) Office, and the newest
iteration of the software giant's productivity suite is especially
cloud-friendly. That's welcome news for organizations that rely on Infinitely
Virtual, a leading provider of virtual server cloud computing
Infinitely Virtual today unveiled its hosted implementation of Microsoft
Office 2013 and announced user pricing for the product family -
unchanged from the Microsoft Office 2010 suite and its various
Individual per-month pricing for Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013
is $15.99; Microsoft Office Standard 2013 is $13.99; Microsoft Word,
Access and Excel are $6.19 each; Microsoft Publisher is $4.39; and
Microsoft Outlook is $2.69.
Microsoft Office 2013 features enhanced enterprise-grade security,
side-by-side support for previous versions of Office, streamlined update
experiences, and IT controls that enable organization to manage Office
on their terms and with their tools and processes.
"With Office 2013's embrace of cloud computing, Microsoft is rightly
touting the suite's ability to deliver productivity on demand," said
Adam Stern, Infinitely Virtual CEO. "Now more than ever, Office
recognizes the way individuals and organizations work in a hosted
environment. We're pleased to be able to hold the line on pricing and to
continue our policy of offering Office modules on an ala carte basis.
It's all part of our broader mission to make migration to the cloud as
efforless and cost-effective as we can."
Among the highlights of Microsoft Office 2013:
Easier deployment. The newest version of Office was built from
the ground up to be the easiest version ever to deploy. Office is
designed so current add-ins and customizations operate seamlessly.
Powerful new Office telemetry tools inspect file and application
compatibility, and optimized provisioning allows IT to quickly deploy
broadly without uninstalling existing Office applications.
Designed for the cloud. Businesses can use existing IT tools
and processes for delivering software, so there's no need to change
management infrastructure before installing. Automation and Group
Policy management tools give users full control over how Office is
installed and configured.
New telemetry tools for centralized performance monitoring. New
Office telemetry tools give IT more power to monitor the health and
performance of Office across the organization and support users as
they migrate from earlier versions of Office. Proactive controls help
ensure that Office performs at peak levels to keep users productive.
Keeping data even more secure. Enhanced security and
multifactor authentication protects files, devices, and individuals,
letting users easily access the information they need while meeting
security and compliance requirements.
Last year, Infinitely Virtual unbundled its hosted, licensed Microsoft
Office suite products, to enable customers to choose those products they
need, at a per-product price. Bundled products often require businesses
to buy more than they need, in order to obtain the one or two
applications they really want. That's why Microsoft Office Suite
products are available a la carte - and businesses have the opportunity
to save more than 40 percent by choosing a single product rather than a
Customers can choose from Microsoft Excel, Access, Publisher or Outlook
as "menu" items, creating a package that precisely fits their needs. For
