Microsoft Office 365/2016

Microsoft Office 365/2016Business people are busy and invest in technologies to be productive and efficient.  For more than 15 years now, the common office productivity suite is Microsoft Office.  It is designed to do desktop publishing, advanced information & data management, multimedia, and more. 

While many school districts use Google Docs as a standard for student work, this is not considered a standard in business and the world-of-work.  The good news is there are many similarities between Google Docs and MS Office. There are also huge difference in what each is designed to do.  Google Docs was never meant to replace Microsoft Office -- it does not (at this time) have the many features and functions that MS Office has supported for almost 2 decades.
