Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Office 2016

We use Microsoft Office on a daily basis for all kinds of things. There are many different reports and papers that we need to write for proposals and applications to get our start-up off the ground. Word helps us write everything faster and then be able to copy and paste what we need to into the applications online. We can also edit all of them in real-time even if we are not in the same place at the same time.
  • I really like how Word has templates for all different kinds of documents, like resumes and job descriptions. They are very convenient, especially if you are having a hard time writing one of these documents.
  • Having the ability to quickly write and edit text documents without needing to be connected to the internet is very convenient.
  • PowerPoint allows us to make professional, yet effective, presentations when we need to pitch our company to potential investors.
  • Sometimes, when we are trying to accurately format a document, the Word software spazzes out and has a hard time making it look correct.
  • The collaborative tools could stand to be a bit better. The commenting features are very complicated and are hard to get rid of after someone leaves feedback on your document.
  • I wish that some of the transitions on PowerPoint were a little more professional. Some of them are more gimmicky than professional.
  • Faster writing and editing of proposals and documents.
  • Clean, attractive presentations for investor pitching.
  • Email where we do not have to worry about the security.
Microsoft Office has all the features of software like G Suite or Apple's slate of word-editing software. It takes all the positives about these two platforms and then has even more features than either of them to make office work ridiculously easy. G Suite requires an internet connection to work, and Apple's suite is just too complicated to use.
I still use older versions of Microsoft Office on some of my computers in addition to Microsoft Office 2016. The oldest version that I use is Microsoft Office 2007, and sometimes, the forums are still helpful when I have questions or issues about it. Support has always been great when I have a problem with Microsoft products and I am always pleased.

If you have literally anything to write at all for your company, Microsoft Office is the way too! Every single piece of software is fantastic. There is not a company out there that should not own the Microsoft Office Suite because it is great for pretty much any scenario: writing documents, doing presentations, making marketing materials, and even sending emails.
