Microsoft Office 365 is three years old now yet very few users are adopting it and prefer to stick with the ‘boxed’ versions of Office 2013 for PC or Office 2011 for Mac. After this rocky start, with some recent tweaks Microsoft Office 365 looks set to be one of Microsoft’s most important products ever.
It’s taken us a while to be convinced here as its been seen as an on-line version with constant subscription costs. But the new revision is great and a true successor to Office 2013 ‘supplied in a box’. Gone is the need to solely use the online versions of applications, which required broadband speeds most small business’ could only dream of, and in comes a great collaboration tool that comes with of all the newest favourites like Word, Excel and Access- all loaded locally on your hard drive but with the ability to share your documents with others and your own other devices.
