Office 365 Business Premium vs Office 365 ProPlus

Hi,

I have a user starting next week and I am thinking about what office 365 plan I should get for him. The main purpose of using this plan is to get him only Office applications as we have On-premise Exchange server so email service is requried.

In Australia, Office 365 ProPlus is more expensive then Business Premium which I think it is nonsense because Business Premium also offers the latest version of office application and I think ProPlus should be cheaper or at least equally same. The only differences between these two plans are Office 365 ProPlus plan comes with Access 2013 which Premium plan does not offer and Exchange online.

Office 365 Business Premium: $17.50 user/month

Office 365 ProPlus: $19.40 user/month

If I need only Office application, I think I should go with Business Premium as they also come with Office application.

Please share your opinions and thoughts.

Wow! Micro$oft have certainly wacked up the price of Office 365 in Australia!
If he doesn't need Access then go for Business Premium or Business (no email) for $13.20 per month.
Or purchase Office Home and Business outright. You will find it locally for around $230.
