Apache OpenOffice

OpenOffice is excellent for quick use to accomplish the same tasks as competitors. It's useful for personal use as well as note-taking or presentations within the business setting.

Microsoft Office 365

I strongly recommend Microsoft Office 365, for those companies that are starters or if they're looking for a collaborative Microsoft Suite to reduce deployment times, and stressful management, Office 365 can allow you to run your mail accounts, shared cloud Files and, IM communication, track down the usage of information and leverage the process of delivering to your teams the development of company process. Remember is a great tool if you got a decent Internet Service Provider, if not you'll need another on premise solution to avoid sync issues or data disruptions.

Cons

  • It could break away from some of MS Word's structures.
  • It should have an (easy to find) option to set the line spacings at something other than the predetermined values without having to reset it every time the program is re-started or a new document is opened.
  • It re-saves documents at start-up without explaining why these need to be re-seaved or who to clear them.

  • Billing: The access to the online billing is restricted to the admin, and our bookkeeper cannot retrieve the statements every month without his assistance.

There are many features of Office that we cannot replicate in any other tool. Plus people know it already. It's not going away anytime soon.

8 because sometimes you do need to wait for a callback or help.But they are a huge company and I can't expect to have someone at our beck and call the very few times i've needed immediate support.They're always friendly and try hard. Feel like they really want you to be satisfied.

Alternatives Considered

I selected Apache because it provides the same tools and performance (as well as the Microsoft Office formats) for absolutely no price tag. It is produced by people who care about making a product that works— great updates are made periodically. The interface is very similar and takes very little time to get used to. It should be a no-brainer!

Microsoft Office 365 stacks up against others by its ability to generate greater productivity, access the platform from anywhere, work with what you know in Office 365, the robust security features of encrypted email, data loss prevention, mobile device management, advanced threat analytics and reliability comes with office 365And that it provides control and efficiency, with the ability to Collaborate easily in an organization. Better still you always to have access to the latest versions of programs and paying a low monthly fee (per user) rather than a large lump sum up front
