HUDSON, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Right Networks, a leading commercial hosting company and a premier provider of cloud-hosted desktop services, announced today it is among an exclusive group of Microsoft Cloud Solution Providers to join the Shared Computer Activation (SCA) program. Right Networks can now offer customers Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus, E3 and E5 versions within their hosted cloud environment through a collection of Azure services. With this update, Right Networks will be the first authorized QuickBooks hosting provider to offer the industry-standard financial accounting application in one integrated package with Office 365.
Microsoft enabled Shared Computer Activation (SCA) in Office 365 so that multiple ProPlus users can access multiple environments – on-premises, cloud hosted, or Azure-based – from multiple devices with just one license. This gives customers the flexibility to take advantage of existing Office 365 ProPlus licensing investments when deploying to the cloud. Customers are able to make a deployment choice between on-premises and the Right Networks datacenters to help lower cloud infrastructure costs.
Starting today, this offer is available to new and existing Right Networks customers who want to provision Office 365 with QuickBooks, or add Office 365 to an existing hosted QuickBooks Desktop subscription. Customers will enjoy all the benefits of the Right Networks hosted desktop in a multi-tenant environment with cost-effective and seamless integration within one cloud workspace.
Customers who purchase Office 365 directly from Right Networks or transfer their license to Right Networks get dedicated support from its Cloud Solutions Support Team. Through Microsoft, Office 365 customers receive migration self-help guides, IT-level web support, and 24x7 phone support for issues that are deemed critical by Microsoft. Right Networks elevates this level of support with its own live, US-based phone and email support to help end users with even their most basic technical support needs.
“This is an exciting step in terms of raising the power and flexibility of our hosted desktop solution,” said John Farrer, Right Networks Co-Founder and CEO. “We are both proud and grateful to participate in this program, and pleased to extend these benefits to our growing customer base. Not only are we continuing to bring new features and innovation to our customers, this announcement further solidifies our position as a leader in the cloud solutions market.”
Customers can purchase an Office 365 license from Right Networks, transfer an existing Office 365 license, or bring their own license. You can also purchase a full suite of Office 365 Business and Enterprise products for your entire organization for use outside the hosted environment.
