The first legitimate contender to Microsoft Office.

The Open Office from Apache is the first legitimate competitor of Microsoft Office. Consisting of Presentation (Impress), Spreadsheets (Calc), Word Processing (Write), and database management (Base) programs along with dedicated math and drawing apps, Open Office is a suite of software that works with most Microsoft formats.

The software is free to use and is compatible with a range of platforms including Linux, Windows, and Mac. This makes Open Office the right fit for businesses that don’t want to include complex word-processors in their business environments.

The suite is highly effective for businesses of all sizes that frequently deal with databases, mathematical equations, multimedia presentations, 3D illustrations, and diagrams. It is extremely easy to use and comes with a user-friendly interface. It also comes with an app that can be accessed from anywhere, thus adding to the convenience.

Although everything is perfect, there are some functions that Open Office is not able to perform and one will have to use Microsoft Office for them. Further, the integration provided by MS Office with Drive, Outlook, and other important business applications is phenomenal; however this essential intergration is lacking in Open Office.

FEATURES

• Free to use: You don’t have to make any purchases or allocate your business budget to purchase Open Office. It is available completely free of cost.
• Compatibility: No matter what operating system your business computers use, Open Office is compatible with all of them including Linux, Windows, and Mac.
• Works with most Microsoft Formats: Open Office files are compatible with respective Microsoft formats like .docx, .xls, .ppt and others.
