Microsoft Office


Microsoft Office consists of a suite of productivity applications including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Access and Publisher.  Microsoft Office Professional is one of the most popular products because it includes all seven productivity applications and gets installed on your computer. Microsoft Office 365 is a SaaS (Software as a Service) version that allows you to use online versions and local versions of the productivity applications and access email and documents over the internet.

Considering how much time employees spend using Microsoft Office applications, most only utilize a small percentage of the vast features. Our expert consultants can identify ways to help you get the most out of the Microsoft Office applications you use on a daily basis. Below is a list of Microsoft Office applications:

  • Word – Word processing program that allows users to create professional documents such as resumes, letters, fax cover sheets, reports, legal documents, brochures, manuals and more.
  • Excel – Spreadsheet application that allows users to perform functions using the following features: calculation, graphing tools, pivot tables, and a macro programming language called Visual Basic for Applications.
  • PowerPoint – Slide show presentation program that allows users to create a professional presentation with slides that contain text, graphics, sound, movies and other objects, which can be arranged freely.
  • Outlook – Personal information manager that includes email, calendar, contacts, and tasks. Outlook can be used as a stand-alone application or can work with Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SharePoint Server.
  • OneNote – Computer program for free-form information gathering and multi-user collaboration. It gathers users’ notes (handwritten or typed), drawings, screen clippings and audio commentaries. Notes can be shared with other OneNote users over the Internet or a network.
  • Access – Database management system that combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface and software-development tools.
  • Publisher – Entry-level desktop publishing application, differing from Microsoft Word in that the emphasis is placed on page layout and design rather than text composition and proofing.
