Why we’re doing it

This project will improve support, encourage flexible working, give staff more reliable file-sharing facilities and offer new opportunities for online collaboration.

Students have been using Office 365 ProPlus for over a year now to great effect. Already there are more Manchester Metropolitan students using Microsoft Office than any other UK university and understandably, many staff are now clamouring for the same opportunity.

What are the benefits?

  • Enhanced opportunities for collaboration (including video meetings and screen-sharing)
  • Flexible working using OneDrive file-sharing and Office web and mobile apps
  • Access and manage your work from any device, anywhere in the world
  • Download the latest version of Office for free, on up to five of your own devices (including mobile apps)
  • Integration with Office 2013 – the new campus standard
  • Improved reliability, capacity and  security for file sharing.

Project scope

This project will apply Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus licenses to all Manchester Metropolitan staff accounts, integrate OneDrive cloud storage with Office apps on campus and provide staff with free Office downloads and tools for collaboration including instant messaging and video meetings using Skype for Business.
