  • Hosted desktop vs Office 365

    We support working online with our own Hosted Desktop and with Office 365 for Business. Both services provide online access to Office applications including Outlook and Word and both offer data storage in the cloud. To assist you in choosing the best solution for your organization, please note that there are a number of differences listed below. Read more about our Office 365 Management.



    Hosted Desktop provides you with a remote desktop and access to more than 200 business applications including Office applications.

    With Office 365, all Office programs and business applications must be installed locally on a  PC. TinkConnect’s managed desktop (workplace management) service can provide data storage, if it can’t be stored on Sharepoint or OneDrive in Office 365.

    Office 365 business applications must be installed locally and applications can only be used on computers where they’ve been installed. It’s a less flexible solution for working online.

    Hosted Desktop enables you to use applications online on both PC and Mac.

  • Data storage

    Office 365 stores data in the Microsoft cloud. Hosted Desktop stores all data on our own servers in Dutch data centers. Data storage in Europe is essential for companies that must  comply with strict privacy conditions e.g. medical and financial institutions.


    Office applications

    Office 365 provides access to the latest version of applications. Hosted Desktop works with Office 2016 applications.


    Information security

    Hosted Desktop has been developed with a focus on digital security. This service is used by companies in the financial and medical sectors. With Hosted Desktop you are always certain where the data is stored.



    Hosted Desktop provides extensive options including easy integration with business applications. Office 365 is simpler and therefore more suitable for companies with a smaller budget.

    Hosted Desktop delivers significant maintenance and licensing cost savings compared with setting up your own IT environment. Hosted Desktop is transparent and user-friendly. You have one contract, one point of contact and you receive one invoice every month. Costs are for a fixed amount per person per month.
