Media Center>Where is the cheapest and best place to get Microsoft Office?
Chief Roundup 03:02 PM 01-13-2021
I am needing Microsoft Office that has Word, Excel, Power Point, etc. all included. I found on Microsoft.com that it is $149. Surely there has to be a cheaper deal that that.
Also I have seen there is a Microsoft Office 365. It is only like $35.00 and comes with more than just the main 3 programs.
I am not sure which to purchase and why a person would purchase one over the other. Trying to make the best purchase.

But professionally, I've seen what works and what doesn't. Google is rapidly closing the gap and Microsoft is pricing itself right out of the marketplace.
I donít doubt it. Nobody ever got rich betting against Google.

Wow. That puts it into perspective. It would be cool if there were a way to calculate how much more productive you were over that time period with Excel than if you had been without it.

I used Teams with a fortune 100 company who had all employees other than essential working from home. Once set up properly, worked great.

We've dumped our entire file server at this point, and it's been fine.

It does help that we're a small office of relatively tech savvy folks, so it's easy to train people on where to find stuff. That would be considerably more difficult with a ton of people, some of whom should be featured on those Progressive commercials.
To be fair, mom and dad are the folks that should be in the Progressive commercials and we dumped our server years ago. Itís Dropbox, but on the functional side itís way easier to use than a server.

There are enterprises out there with 40K home office workers using Google docs because Sharepoint simply doesn't work with that kind of setup.
SharePoint is a dog. :-)

A 3-legged one at that.
