Which Enterprise Plan are they currently on?

The E3 Plan includes Office (as does the E4 Plan).

The switch would be Easy to the E3 / E4 plans as you are on an Enterprise plan.

You can mix and match E1 and E3 plans together under the same subscription.

If you want to move to the Business Plan, then you would have to cancel the existing plan and take out a Business Plan subscription and set that up again from scratch.

Do you have a Microsoft Cloud Partner you use to help you with 365?  They should be able to help / advise you accordingly if you do, or if you need one, you wouldn't have to look to far to find one :)

You can actually mix the Enterprise and (small) Business Plans now, so you can either switch them directly to the Office 365 Business Premium plan or simply add the Office 365 Business plan to their existing subscription.

I logged into one of our E1 customer accounts and tried the switch option and it only allowed a switch to the E3 or E4 plans.

Oh, sorry, I didnt mean the switch plans wizard. You can just add the licenses directly, and assign them to users:

That's from first release tenant though, so I guess it might be missing for 'normal' tenants for now.
