              Office 365 Trial in Georgia available now

              by Arman Obosyan 3. July 2013 10:30

              OK, Office 365 Trial is available, what is mean for you, for your organization, let me explain.

              First of all this trial offer are 120 day, that mean you will get 4 month free (4 month free!!!) use of Office 365 in the following plans;

              Office 365 plan for business
              Office 365 Small Business Premium up to 25 Users
              Office 365 Midsize Business up to 300 Users
              Office 365 Enterprise E3 up to "Unlimited" Users

              Office 365 plans for Education
              Office 365 Plan A3 Trial

              To see plans and Office 365 for Georgia you need change site to English (International) and choose your billing country/region to Georgia on http://office.microsoft.com/

              What means 120 day for you? what will happened after trial is over? Simple answer would probably be that Office 365 will be launched in Georgia and you will be able to transfer trial to full production.

              You can also try Office 365 using Microsoft Partners offers in Georgia, such offers also includes additional support from partners, they can help you in hybrid sceneries (On-Premises and Office 365) initial or additional configuration, user management (e.g. password synchronization) additional SharePoint configuration, Lync Public Connectivity and many more.

              For example at this time High-Tech Solutions LLC currently offer advisory service in Office 365, for more information visit their Office 365 trial offer promotion on Facebook

              That it for now, I will not write about how it easy to have Office 365 for organization how easy to manage and serve your users in Office 365 how less is overall time consuming using Office 365, to know it you must try it your self.
