Businesses of all sizes depend on Microsoft Office to help them get their work done faster and smarter. But the cost of buying and upgrading individual licenses for every computer in your organization can be prohibitive – especially for smaller, seasonal or rapidly growing businesses. Though the Microsoft Office suite is the most popular workplace productivity software in the world, it also has the reputation of being the most expensive.
Deployment of the suite can costs businesses thousands of dollars if the intent is to the install Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher and Access on each office desktop computer. An inexpensive way to reduce the cost is by using desktop virtualization. Using the Office Suite through a hosted virtual desktop interface can allow you to pay one a pre-set fee every month for each user and not have to worry about updating the software, virus software or auditing user licenses.
