What's in a Name?

As many of you have pointed out, navigating Office 365 product offerings can be confusing.

There are Office 365 products, there are Microsoft 365 products.

And applications.

And Cloud Services.

With all these options and similar names, it can be hard to understand exactly what products and services you are subscribing to. We are grateful that over the years, you have trusted 12:34 to be your Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider and help you arrive at the right package for the work you do.

We’re happy to announce that Microsoft has recognized this confusion, and is renaming the Office 365 family of products to align with the Microsoft 365 name. Below is a list of existing products and what their new names will be.

These names go into effect April 21st, 2020.

So we wanted to give you the heads up– where there are no changes to pricing or product offerings, you will notice a name change on your invoices beginning in May.
