Top 10 reasons why Office 2010 is great for your business
1. Work together in real time
With more people working on the go these days, collaborating with coworkers can be a challenge. With Co-Authoring, multiple team members can work on a single document at the same time, so revisions, edits, and approvals can be made quickly and easily -- from almost anywhere.
2. Keep productive on the go with a seamless online/offline experience
With Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010, you can keep all your important SharePoint documents and lists available offline. Also, you can use peer-to-peer workspaces to collaborate with people inside and outside of your organization -- without the need for SharePoint Server.
In both cases, when you connect, only the changes are synchronized, getting you the updates faster even when faced with a low-bandwidth connection. Keep your team up to date, your content consistent, and take everything with you wherever you work.
3. Respond faster when you're away from the office
With Office 2010, you can review and do minor editing on Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote 2010 documents virtually anywhere by using Office Web Apps, from more locations on more devices.
4. Do more on your phone with Office Mobile 2010
Office Mobile enables co-workers in different locations to share, edit, and comment on documents with their smartphones, using a familiar Office experience best suited to mobile devices.*
Also, you can use Office Web Apps through the browser to make edits and view documents without losing any formatting or content. Extend your Office experience to stay up to date and do much more than just read e-mail from your mobile device.
5. Create professional materials that set you apart and keep costs down
With the powerful tools in Word, Excel, Publisher, and PowerPoint 2010, you can elevate the quality and professionalism of your work and save money by doing it yourself.
Capture your ideas in fewer clicks and leverage a variety of ready-made design templates. Transform any document from simple to sophisticated with easy image and video editing tools, text effects, and dramatic slide transitions, for communications that stand out from the competition.
6. Regain control of your e-mail
The Conversation View, Clean Up, and Ignore features in Outlook 2010 can remove duplicate information and act like a "mute button" for your inbox. MailTips provide notices before a message is sent to protect information leakage or embarrassing mistakes. Warnings can be configured by IT to show alerts such as when a message is addressed to a large distribution list or to recipients outside of the company domain.
Office 2010 gives your people faster and easier ways to manage their e-mail, which is critical today as the number of daily messages for most people is on the rise.
7. Share Instantly with Broadcast Slide Show in PowerPoint
Broadcast Slide Show in PowerPoint 2010 allows you to present a slideshow directly from PowerPoint to any audience member who can access a Web browser*. Simply send out an e-mail invitation with a Web link and recipients can follow along in their browser while you control the presentation from your PC. Broadcast Slide Show can be managed through Group Policy, and IT can choose between a locally-hosted broadcast service, a free service provided over the Internet through Microsoft PowerPoint Live, or both. Now you can hold spontaneous meetings with customers and partners with security in mind and save on third-party broadcasting tools.
8. Make quicker and more informed business decisions
Excel 2010 provides tools for improved data visualization, which can provide key insights into business processes and allow you to tailor messaging and products to best meet your customers' needs.
Whole trends can be conveyed in a single cell with Sparklines, and there are more options in styles and icons in conditional formatting, as well as the ability to highlight specific items such as "max/min" in a single click.
9. Increase productivity and reduce training costs with Microsoft Office Backstage
Find commonly accessed commands when opening or finishing a document, including opening new or existing files, defining document properties, and sharing your information.
10. Stay organised and on top of your work
OneNote 2010 features allow you to pull together everything from daily sales figures to digital images, so all the information you need is easily accessible. You can also create side notes that stay on your screen as you move between different programs, so you can keep your thoughts organized as you multi-task. This helps to keep you organized while saving you time.
