- Tech Details
- The Microsoft suite is ubiquitous within any tech company and is used by a majority of our vendors. This makes negotiation on Microsoft Word smoother, and we don't need to worry about format issues between Open Office and Microsoft Office since our vendors are all on Microsoft Office.
- Office 2016 does not crash as often as previous versions, and the autosave feature works very well. The new features and new look are great.
- There should be auto-formatting so that when we paste from other documents, it formats outlines automatically. Sometimes, it's very difficult to format into a nice-looking document due to various spacing issues or hidden paragraphs.
- There are frustrations when converting a PDF to Microsoft Word from Adobe Acrobat. A ton of spacing issues, incorrect text conversions, etc., which ends up in a lot of manual work. Microsoft Word should have a good conversion tool to turn PDFs into clean Word copies.
- The ability to redline and comment on contracts and other documents
- Comparing two versions of documents to confirm no extraneous changes were made by the other party
- Microsoft Office 2016 - specifically Microsoft Word - keeps the time required for back-and-forth negotiations low because we do not have to deal with markups within PDFs, and redlining is very easy using Microsoft Word. There isn't a specific numeral impact to report since we've always been using Office here since I joined the team.
- Contract Drafting and Negotiations
- Creation of HR, Compliance, and other Policy documents for the company

- Integrates well with Mac & PC Operating Systems
- Many Tools for Word, Excel and Powerpoint
- Some features from the previous versions of PowerPoint were removed causing a little pain with some of our power users
- The sign in feature can become annoying each time you launch a product
- The licensing feature sometimes loses its registration, therefore, you receive a message from time to time that your product is unregistered
- The product is a staple, so it definitely increases employee productivity.
- Licensing and cost remain the top issue. We are constantly battling Microsoft to maintain our "Non-Profit" Status.
- The cost has made us very strict with deployments. Users that request the software can get an installation and others can use Google Sheets, Docs & Slides.
- Scheduling Meetings with Calendar
- Documentation and Collaboration
- Online Collaboration of documents
- Use in virtual desktops

We are currently using Excel 2016 to track and evaluate weekly project performance through the collection of performance data and evaluating the data through the compilation of metrics and charts/graphs. We use Power Query for the engagement of different sets of data and to automate the updating of the performance metrics and graphs.
Word is used to create/distribute processes and procedures. PowerPoint is used to create meeting briefs and of course Outlook for day to day communications and then I personally use OneNote for the compilation of general notes and information. We are currently migrating to O365 where we hope to tap into the many collaborative features that come with O365 and the SharePoint environment.
- Power Query (now known as "Get & Transform" under the Data tab in Excel 2016) and Power Pivot greatly enhance data engagement and removes many of the limitations previously found in Excel regarding the size of data the user could engage with. The interfaces in both Power Query and Power Pivot are really intuitive and one could find themselves quickly putting together data automation with little to no coding knowledge. If you haven't heard of Power Query (like the many people that say Excel is obsolete) please YouTube it...It's great!!!! The addition of the Power Query add-in makes Excel a real game changer.
- I'm really appreciating the direction I see Microsoft heading with their latest product offerings. It's more team-centric with focus placed on collaborating with multiple stakeholders. Especially when you find yourself in the cloud and working with O365.
- Portability, I enjoy being able to engage my files regardless the platform I may find my self on; tablet, pc, laptop or smartphone.
- The wealth of free training material available from Microsoft is a big plus. I've never found myself engaging an issue where the answer wasn't just a web search away.
- I would like to see Power BI desktop to be made a part of the Office Suite.
- So far the introduction of Office 2016 has been positive with additional opportunities for the product to be further leveraged in other business areas.
