Compare suites available through volume licensing

Upgrade to the latest Office to boost productivity.

If you need to purchase five or more licenses, Microsoft Office offers three suites that are available through volume licensing—Office Professional Plus 2016, Office Standard 2016, and Office Standard 2016 for Mac. If you need fewer than five licenses, see the comparison page for other Office suites. We also offer Office 365 Business and Office 365 ProPlus , a subscription service that gives you the latest version of Office plus cloud services like file sharing and storage. If you want an always-up-to-date version of Office you can access anywhere and productivity services that you can deploy and manage the way you want, consider Office 365 Business or Office 365 ProPlus.

The following table illustrates the different applications in the three Office suites available through volume licensing and their enterprise value. The suites also differ in the level of integration with related business productivity servers.
