Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant can be a very handy add-on tool when it comes to end user sign-in capabilities to Microsoft Online services like Office 365.
Installing MOS SIA will provide you with the necessary client components to allow applications like Microsoft Outlook and Lync to authenticate to Microsoft Online Services. It also enables the end user to stay signed-in to Microsoft Online Services and not having to re-enter their username and password every time.
Here are the benefits of Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant:
1. You can download and install MOS SIA for the client to enable them to stay logged in to their Microsoft Online Services.
2. Your client already got Microsoft Office 2010/2013 on their laptop and then sign up for Office 365. Download and install MOS SIA to authenticate with the new Office 365 subscription.
3. Your customer signed up for Office 365. It will take too long to download Microsoft Office (Office 365 Desktop Setup Application) from the Office 365 Portal you can use a Microsoft Office Installation disk. Copy the DVD onto the client’s server and share the folder. Then roll it out to all client workstations and then install MOS SIA. Then will save you a lot of download time.
Remember that when you install Microsoft Office using Office 365 Desktop Setup Application, you don’t need to download MOS SIA as it is already part of the Desktop Setup Application.
