Microsoft Office – The Right Fit For Your Business?

Microsoft have been very busy behind the scenes – launching Office 2016 and Office 365, labelled ‘the perfect pairing for Windows 10’.

I invite you to take a couple of minutes out today to take a look at some of the benefits your business could be reaping by using the latest version of Office.

This is to ensure that you’re getting the most out of Microsoft package – allowing you, your business, and your colleagues to work as efficiently as possible.

So let’s dive in and take a look…

1.    It’s Built For Teamwork
In Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, there’s easy sharing right from within the app. You can also see who has access to a given file and who is currently working in it. With ‘real-time typing’, as you collaborate with others in a document, you can see where others are working and view their edits as they happen.

2.    There’s New Chart Types In Word, PowerPoint, And Excel
Visualise financial or hierarchical data, and highlight statistical properties of your data with new chart types: Treemap, Waterfall, Pareto, Histogram, Box and Whisker, and Sunburst.

3.    Faster, Easier Ways To Get Data Into Excel
Excel includes a powerful new set of features called Get & Transform, which provides fast, easy data gathering and shaping capabilities. Get & Transform enables you to connect, combine, and refine data sources to meet your analysis needs. No more pulling your hair out formatting data that’s been ‘copied and pasted’.

4.    Modern Attachments In Outlook
Attach a document from your recent items and share them from OneDrive or SharePoint with email recipients. Also configure sharing permissions so that all the recipients have access to the attached file without having to leave the app.

5.    Smart Lookup In Word, PowerPoint, Excel, And Outlook
Fact-check or explore terms in your documents with Bing-powered Smart Lookup. Simply highlight terms in your document and use this feature to bring in search results from the web right into your reading or authoring environment.

6.    ‘Tell Me’ In Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Project, Visio, And Access
Simply type what you want to do in the app using your own words, and then Tell Me will guide through the process as well as offer additional resources.
