Office 365 Mid-Sized Business or Office 365 Small Business?


  • When should someone choose "Office 365 Mid-Sized Business" over "Office 365 Small Business"?  They say Mid-Sized is for businesses with 25+ users.  Is there any difference in functionality?  The price is the same for both: $15 per month.

    I have a small business with about 15 users with a tight budget.

  • Hi,

    According to the following site, it seems the differences between the two plans are:

    1. Active Directory integration:

    Manage user credentials and permissions. Single sign-on and synchronization with Active Directory.

    2. Intranet site for your teams:

    SharePoint sites provide workspaces with customizable security settings for individual teams within the organization.

    3. Site mailboxes:

    Store and share email and documents in project-specific folders, allowing for easier team collaboration.

    Both plans have Free trial version. Before you purchase the products, you can give it a try.

    Best regards,
