The Kiosk worker offering in Office 365 (aka the K-plan) is designed for the user that doesn’t have messaging and collaboration today. It is a low cost way of giving you a common platform for communicating with employees such as 'deskless' workers, shift workers or retail store employees who use shared PCs
The value proposition is already great (prices starting at USD 2 per user per month for the Exchange Online Kiosk Plan) - but new exciting Office 365 changes to the K-plan brings you increased value:
EAS is designed for the synchronization of email, contacts, calendar, tasks and notes from a messaging server to a mobile device, where as POP is limited to e-mail only.
For workers on the road most of their day (e.g. district nurses or home helpers, helping elderly people in their homes) the above changes obvisously will add a lot of increased functionality if they have a smartphone, e.g. being able maintain to an updated schedule in their calenders, set reminders via tasks a.s.o.
It work be far more useful if the cheap K plan had IAMP or EWS support included instead of POP.
Lack of syncing the laptop client with mobile renders this sku unusable.
I don't want the larger plans with more storage, etc - just a basic cheap option thats usable.
