We use Word and Excel on a daily basis and currently manage an access database that houses some of our client data. Office 2016, despite being discontinued is still a viable option for those who don't want to switch to office 365 and their monthly or yearly billing.

Microsoft Office 2016 is being used across the whole organization. Within Legal, we use Microsoft Word to draft and negotiate agreements and other legal documents. Microsoft Office addresses many business problems, such as standardization of review internally, ease of transferability, secured tracking of changes, collaboration, presentations, tracking, reporting, etc. Many departments are using Microsoft Excel to track agreements, renewal dates, obligations, etc. Other departments also use Microsoft PowerPoint for internal or external business presentations.

Microsoft Office 2016 Standard has been the main office solution in our company for 5 years now. We used to use Microsoft Office 2010 and we made the migration to Microsoft Office 2016 Standard along with the Exchange Server 2016. We have also an on-premise installation of Skype for Business 2015. We used to have the x86 version installed, but a few months ago we migrated to the x64 version. We had to wait for SAP to support x64 version of Office 2016, before we could switch over to x64. We have also tried Office 2019, but the fact that Office 2019 does not support updates over WSUS made us stick with Office 2016 and no longer consider switching over to Office 2019. We have really checked all scenarios that we have and Office 2016 more than covers all our needs. If the Office 2016 support was extended past 2025, we would really see no reason to ever make an upgrade!

Before recently upgrading to Office 365, I used Office 2016 mostly for email, word processing, and spreadsheet management. Across the organization, it was used for the same, and any additional services needed (PowerPoint, etc.). I create several Excel spreadsheets each week to track and manage data I receive from our customers via their software portals.

We use Microsoft Office for writing all official documents (Word), for forecasting (Excel), and for presentations (PowerPoint). MS Office does not require much training. As it is an industry-standard, employees are able to use it without the company spending additional resources on training.

We upgraded from [Microsoft] Office2013 to Office2016 as part of our natural software upgrade process. [Microsoft] Office2016 is a better product, has some new features, and a better, more polished look overall. We use it for our corporate email, spreadsheets, text documents, creating presentations, etc. Office2016 suite contains all the different software programs we require for our business.

OneNote 2016 is part of the 2016 "suite" & the part that I use the most. Invoices & bank statements that I formerly retained as papers in a file cabinet are now all in the MS cloud. The Lens App for my Android phone is a scanner that automatically sends images to OneNote.

The whole company uses it every day, it is one of our main work tools. We use almost the entire complete office suite, some users only use the basics, but we have other more advanced ones that exploit it to the fullest. It is likely that without this tool our daily work would not be as efficient as it is today.

We use Office 2016 mainly for Outlook 2016, Excel, and Word 2016. We have an in-house exchange server and the best email client for connecting to an exchange server is Outlook 2016, it has the calendar features and schedule that makes life a lot easier. Also our ERP system exports to Excel quickly and easily, and its the easiest platform for my users to clean out a report for sharing with our clients, it's easy enough that I can teach any user how to use it in under an hour.

Microsoft Office 2016 is used by clerical and administrative positions throughout this company. It helps facilitate business communications within our company and with our customers. It's a crucial piece of software that offers many benefits and options to do many tasks. The main products used in the suite are Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Office 2016 is being used both at the organization level and also the departmental level. It is mainly used by those that cannot/choose not to run a subscription Office product (such as Office 365). This is also used in cases where there are shared computers (such as a kiosk), where the subscription-based Office will not work. It addresses the business problem of having an Office application suite that would be best for the situations mentioned above.

Our entire office uses the Microsoft Office 2016 suite on a daily basis as follows:
  • Outlook for all internal and a considerable amount of external communication
  • Word to create internal & external documentation
  • Excel to view, edit and manipulate data files, as well as other administrative tasks
  • Access to edit and manipulate data and prepare large amounts of data for import into our software
The four departments in our company use various applications from Microsoft Office 2016 daily for a variety of tasks.

We use Microsoft Office for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and emails. I have always been a Microsoft user and prefer Office products to Google Suite, mainly because I like having documents right on my computer instead of only existing in the cloud. Everyone in our company uses Office, and we try to use Office with as many of our clients as possible.

We use Microsoft Office within some of the teams to make/read documents, presentations and spreadsheets.
Many of our clients share Office documents to share project requirements. We use Office to read these documents. We also use Office to create status documents, quotes and other business specific documents. We also share documents prepared using Office within the company.

Microsoft Office 2016 is used by all the users with the company. The majority of users have been using this for a long period of time and have found Office 2016 a great tool and a great way of working with office tools.

Microsoft Office 2016 is being used across our organization. We use Microsoft Word 2016 to draft documents and Microsoft Excel 2016 for simple spreadsheets containing tabular data, as well as for more complex VBA code, pivot tables, and data analysis. We also use Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 to prepare presentations and Microsoft Outlook 2016 as our primary email client. Since Microsoft Office 2016 is a suite of applications, it helps to support a variety of business-critical functions.

The whole suite of Microsoft Office 2016 is available for use all across the company I work for, we have access to the main apps (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook and OneNote) and all is integrated through the OneDrive cloud and Sharepoint connectivity, making it possible to instantly share files and cooperate with other users simultaneously on folders and also on the same file. This addresses many of the needs we have regarding documentation, data sheets, presentation, and taking notes and sharing information all through the organization.

Like any other big organisation Microsoft Office 2016 is a suite of core applications that are used from managing email in Outlook to writing documents in MS Word, creating complex worksheets in MS Excel to presenting your work in visual style using Power Point. Using MS Access to data management and automation is also extremely valuable among data analysts. For a company like us there's no alternative to MS Office in the market.

Microsoft Office 2016 is being used across the whole organization to support document development with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. A live, collaborative platform is usually preferred but when it cannot be used like in the instance of external teams these tools are sufficient. It addresses the issue of sharing documents in a consistent way for external teams. It allows for document creation, robust formatting, and sharing.

It's used by almost all users across our organization. It addresses the business problems such as various bugs with Office 2013 (or Office 2011 for Mac). Specifically with Outlook, I've noticed an improvement in performance. We utilize an Exchange Server with 2FA turned on, and Office 2016 works best with this. So we needed to get every updated to this version. For Macs, it solves a problem with Outlook 2011 not being user-friendly and users had to use Mac Mail or our web client. Now they can use Outlook 2016 and see shared mailboxes (something not available in Mac Mail).

Microsoft Office is being heavily used by accounting and payroll/hr. It is also used across the whole organization for basic Excel and Word capabilities. And our entire organization uses Outlook as our email program. We have facilities all over the world, and these programs make it easy to communicate with each other.

Microsoft Office is used individually and across the whole organization. It is the software we use to create PowerPoint presentations to do in-house teachings as well as teaching to the public in both a free and fee-based seminars. It is easy to use, share and modify between employees and takes little training to teach the basics. The spreadsheet and document modules allow our employees to create and share integral tools and pieces of communication used within our company.
