Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Office 2016

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.
  • Microsoft Office easily allows us to create new presentations using a variety of modalities, including spreadsheets, video links, and drawings.
  • Microsoft Office has products everyone is already familiar with through their prior schooling which makes training time minimal to non-existent.
  • Microsoft Office has tutorials that are easy to use, to learn beyond the basics and increase usability.
  • Microsoft Office could improve their import functions, when bringing in a file that was created on a different platform.
  • It would be nice to see an 'add to dictionary' function when a word not in it's dictionary comes up repeated times when creating a new work.
  • Doing presentations using Microsoft Office keeps our audiences engaged 75% more than before we implemented this strategy.
Microsoft Office has more flexibility and functionality than OpenOffice. OpenOffice isn't able to translate documents from other programs as easily and has more limitations in keystroke options for editing documents. OpenOffice is free, which can be a factor for some companies, but their are limitations that come with that. The tutorials and training offered through Microsoft are also a big benefit compared to OpenOffice.
Microsoft Office makes it easy to get help within the program. Most challenges can be answered through the help tab that each program provides and when that doesn't answer it, there is an automatic link to the internet. Microsoft Office being the mainstay for most elementary and high school systems, the availability of tutorials outside of Microsoft Office are also numerous, exponentiating the resource vault.

Would you buy Microsoft Office 2016 again?

Microsoft Office is well suited when there are Word documents that need to be created and modified regularly as well as PowerPoint presentations and spreadsheets, especially when there is a desire to integrate these among each other. It also has good functionality in doing mail merges for documents and labels, a nice option when you need a 'form letter' or looking to mail to a large group.
