available in the Microsoft office Professional 2013 suite in addition to multiple
communication and collaboration tools. With office 365 you can retrieve, edit, and
save office documents on the office 365 cloud, coauthor documents in real time
with others, and quickly initiate computer-based calls, instant messages, and web
conferences with others.
Whether you are inserting audio and video into a Word document to create a
high-impact business plan proposal or utilizing the visualization tools in Excel to chart
the return on investment of a new mobile marketing program, office 365 premium plans
deliver the full office product with the same features as the latest version of Microsoft
office. office 365 uses a quick-start installation technology, called Click-to-Run , that
downloads and installs the basics within minutes, so that users are able to start working
almost immediately. It also includes Of ce on Demand , which streams office to
Windows 7- and Windows 8-based PCs for work performed on public computers.

count toward the device limit. No installation is necessary when using office on Demand,
and the applications disappear from the computer once you are nished using them. If
you have a document on a USB drive or on SkyDrive that you need to edit on another
PC, you can use office on Demand to get the full version of Word in just a few minutes.

applications wherever you are working. When you access your ofce 365 account

office for Mac. Selecting the third option will initiate a download of an installer that

most current Mac version of office is installed.

you cannot access your Google Docs les.
