Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Office 2016

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.
  • Friendly and intuitive interface, easy to use, the help function is also useful to find out what to do or how to do something when encountering a problem.
  • Lots of tools available for nearly every need you have creating documents, whether formatting text, images or graphics, creating tables, plotting graphs, etc.
  • Having so many tools can sometimes be overwhelming, maybe if MS could still offer them -- of course they are useful -- but make them hidden in an expandable drawer of tools for example. Maybe having the most-used tools visible and the rest hidden like that.
  • Formatting with Word can sometimes be confusing, while formatting the text and space between lines, paragraphs and other things, the instructions to find and getting the format you want could be clearer.
  • Practical and fast to create any kind of document.
  • Easy to create presentations and incorporate different elements inside one doc, gaining time and getting a nicer result in the end.
The Microsoft Office Suite not only offers much more tools and resources if comparing the main apps like Word/Docs, Excel/Sheets, Powerpoint/Slides, but it also can give you more power and options when taking notes through OneNote (against Keep), communication is easy through Skype, and Outlook has great mail management options over Gmail, and in my opinion the interface is more friendly also.
I cannot rate Microsoft Office 2016 Suite support properly since I never directly use it, as I also never needed. This is information enough, also, as using it for some time now I never experienced big problems. It addresses the quality of the products as I got through a few crashes, the majority being in Excel dealing with lots of data sheets and processing them through Macros, which is known to put the computer and software to test, so no big worries there.

The whole suite of Microsoft Office 2016 is definitely a great all-around solution for your business, offering a wide range of tools for nearly every need you could encounter, from creating text documents, publications, data analysis, plotting graphs, making presentations, sharing files all through the organization, communicating with your colleagues and people outside the company, and even managing tasks and projects. Whatever you have to do, name it, MS Office can help you with that, and even though the cost is high it has continually improved itself in newer versions, incorporating functions that users expressed a need for. All of this puts Microsoft Office top-of-mind when thinking of office apps to recommend.
