Office 365 ProPlus is a version of Office that's available through Office 365. It includes the applications that you're familiar with, including Access, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, Skype for Business, and Word. You can use these applications to connect with Office 365 services such as SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, and Skype for Business Online.

Office 365 ProPlus is similar to other versions of Office that you can deploy to your users. Here are some important similarities:

  • Office 365 ProPlus is a full version of Office.

  • Its system requirements (for example, memory, hard disk space, and operating system) are similar to other current versions of Office. For more information, see System requirements for Office.

  • Like other versions of Office, Office 365 ProPlus is available in a 32-bit and a 64-bit version. To decide which version is right for your environment, carefully review Choose the 64-bit or 32-bit version of Office before you deploy.

  • When you deploy Office 365 ProPlus, it's installed on the user's local computer. Office 365 ProPlus is not a web-based version of Office. It runs locally on the user's computer. Users don't need to be connected to the Internet all the time to use it.

  • You can use many of the same tools to deploy and configure Office 365 ProPlus that you're already using to deploy Office. For example, you can use System Center Configuration Manager to deploy Office 365 ProPlus. For more information, see Choose how to deploy Office 365 ProPlus.

  • In addition, you can use many of the same Group Policy settings that you use with other versions of Office to configure and enforce Office 365 ProPlus program settings.
