Most people are familiar with Microsoft Office, but become confused when they see the new menu bars in Microsoft Office 2007 and 2010 and they know how to use Outlook. At home they have become familiar with the web mail interface of gmail and hotmail etc. We can show you how your staff can work efficiently without purchasing Microsoft Office for all the computers in your office, which could be a significant saving.
Here are some alternatives:
- Microsoft Office comes in a number of different versions so money can be saved by checking each users requirement & getting the appropriate version(s).
- Open Office is free & compatible with Microsoft Office, it looks like pre 2007 versions, so many people are more familiar with the Open Office layout than the new Microsoft Office one. The majority of people who make / use / send / receive Word, Excel & PowerPoint files will have no problems. If you want an email client on your PC then you can use Thunderbird which looks and feels like Outlook Express.
- Google Apps provides an Internet base Office suit, maintained & updated by Google, this has the advantage that nothing needs to be installed or maintained on individual machines as itís all available from the Internet on any computer.
- Microsoft also offer a free web base office suite, so why install the full one?
If you look at your options below, and think why should I buy, install and maintained a copy on each PC in your office, when a couple of clicks gives you the latest web version for free?
