Likelihood to Recommend

Microsoft

I'd recommend [Microsoft] Office2016 for any business that has more than a couple of users, as the software is very scalable from just a small business to a large enterprise corporation. I don't know of any case where it might not be appropriate, as even home users and students use the software suite as well.

Pros

Microsoft

  • Data manipulation. Excel takes the raw data we receive and allows us to digest it in ways that are useful to our business processes.
  • Communication. Outlook serves as our primary means of communication and setting up appointments.
  • Documentation. Word is the default standard when it comes to using a word processor and we are no different in this regard. Nearly every user has to use the application on a regular basis in order to accomplish their work.

  • WordPerfect Office makes merging documents very simple and I can do more elaborate merges easily.
  • WordPerfect Office's reveal codes is a major plus! I have used it so many times to find extra coding in a document that is creating problems.

Cons

Microsoft

  • 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.

  • Sometimes converting for MS Word corrupts the formatting and cannot be used.
  • On the newest version, if you open a document from the computer explorer, it opens a whole new program, instead of just opening a new document as in previous versions, so it makes toggling more difficult.
  • There is still a WYSIWYG glitch where sometimes a line does not appear on the screen, but it is definitely there.

      We believe that office 2016 offers the best value when it comes to features included out of the box. The software is used in its entirety by our organization and is easily supported by our staff of IT technicians. Users find this software to be easy to learn and easy to use with minimal learning curve.

      I would rather use Microsoft Word but since the conversion isn't flawless we are stuck using WordPerfect.

      Usability

      Microsoft

      It's fairly easy to use, but the automatic formatting or capturing of formatting when pasting is wonky - especially when there are outlines or other bullets/numbered lists. Fixing and sizing up tables can be annoying, and there are sometimes formatting issues that we just absolutely cannot fix for some reason

      Support Rating

      Microsoft

      I am an MS feedback hub participant and they certainly don't pay enough attention to several bugs several people raise it in the portal. For the enterprise, it seems to me based on my prior experience that yes, they have a dedicated team to support operations. For mid to small companies or single users, it has been a struggle. So, you are pretty much with MS Blogs and others.

      Corel still offers support. Microsoft doesn't unless you have a paid contract. LibreOffice is all web-based. If you need support, Corel WordPerfect Office is the best option.

      Alternatives Considered

      Microsoft

      We use Microsoft Office 2016 because at the time it was the best tool for us, but now with full attention to cloud products, we may be thinking of migrating our solution to a cloud service.

      I have used Microsoft Office extensively as well as Google's suite of office products. I think that Microsoft is more versatile overall; from Powerpoint to Excel to Word, as well as Outlook, it has the whole office pretty much covered. WordPerfect is a very strong word processor and great for everyday use, but I don't think it could replace Excel, despite its useful tables function. I don't know if WordPerfect has an email application, so I can't compare that to Word, but we use WordPerfect side by side with the rest of the Microsoft Office suite.

      Return on Investment

      Microsoft

      • Microsoft Office 2016 saves me a lot of time daily. I have functions and macros set up that calculate and show me a lot of things just from a couple of my inputs. This would take full days sometimes if not for that.
      • Apart from time, it saves me money, I manage data in Excel, I don't have to buy software specifically for that.
      • Sooner or later my company will have to switch to new edition, which will hurt revenues because of a subscription model.

      • Interfacing with Microsoft products.
      • Some of the software needs to be updated..
