The online suite, which includes communications and collaboration tools, was launched in the US last November and is coming to the UK in a matter of months at a monthly price of £10.04 per user.
Simon Gautrey, group manager for software plus services and emerging channels at Microsoft, said that the pricing was competitive and the attraction to customers was obvious.
“We are about to go into our customer information phase and in the next few weeks will be getting users on board and telling them about it but there has already been a lot of interest in flexibility,” he said.
He added that one of the major areas of interest was coming from the SME community as they could get access to tools they would have traditionally found too expensive.
“There is a definite opportunity in the mid market business,” he said.
Gautrey was unable to give an exact date for the launch of the Business Productivity Online Suite but said it was not too far away and internally it was getting very close to the UK kick-off of the programme.
