Likelihood to Recommend

Microsoft Office 2016

I think that Microsoft Office 2016 really is best in class when it comes to needing an office suite but if I was being asked to make a recommendation for a user, I would lean heavily towards Office, but would also take into account the person's needs and budget as well. There are some use cases where it is just not necessary to have a full-scale product.

Pros

Microsoft Office 2016

  • Consistent functionality across the several Office components. This consistency is a great advantage for adoptions of other unused Office components. For example, if you want to publish a book that you have done with Word, you don't need to relearn new menu positions, new file-related actions, new reviewing procedures, etc.
  • Functionality extensions with Add-ins. This has always been a nameplate for Microsoft and Office keeps its tradition. I remember the renowned Bill Gates phrase when Visual Basic has been presented to him, he said: "Make it extensible". So, for example, I use Grammarly to improve my translations and there are thousands of Add-ins that you can purchase to increase your productivity.
  • Continuous improvement of online Office 365 allows for comprehensive usage from any platform, like Apple or Android tablets, Mac or Windows, cell phones and more. Every day and regular user's functions are there. And if you need extensive reviewing capabilities or programming, you can always rely on the desktop version.
  • Spelling and translate for multiple languages are now included in the online version. I should indeed rely more on the online version.

Cons

Microsoft Office 2016

  • Office 2016 professional edition can be priced for a single user license, it would be nice to see a drop in the pricing.
  • Office 2016 home edition is a better price but does not include outlook 2016, so it is not a good fit for the workplace environments.
  • Office 2016 can run slowly on older systems, so you need to make sure you have a machine that is 4 years old or less for it to run smoothly.

Microsoft support is very good, big corporation has people for everything. You can find a lot of solutions to problems and helpful tutorials, as well as ready to be copied macros and functions made by communities around the world. Very big user base means there aren't situations that someone else didn't have already

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Office 2016

I have always used MS Office products due to the reliability and ease of use. I feel this is the best program for office use regardless of the size or skill level of the employees. There are educational opportunities for mastery of each program, but for the typical novice, they are easy to use for basic needs

Return on Investment

Microsoft Office 2016

  • Alternatives often had me wasting time looking for solutions or learning things again. Office minimizes wasted time.
  • Subscription model means Office is always updated, so I don't have to shop for software packages every year or every version.
  • Universal compatibility had eliminated previous problems I had with clients' documents and presentations.
  • Great community and tech support for when I can't figure things out on my own.
