We have written about the new PowerPoint on this post and about the mobility of Windows 10 on this post. On September 22nd office 2016 was officially released.

 

Collaboration is the strongest keyword you will find across all the reviews that came out. The improvements on the productivity suite aren’t new for those you already are subscribers to the cloud and web-based Office 365, but it does elevate the game to users. Namely the majority of business users, a.k.a. desktop users.

 

On the windows 10 post the emphasis was mobile, on this new release it is collaboration. But in way that it does increase your productivity milestones. The secret here is the real-time editing feature, most visible and feasible in WORD, although it extends to the other apps like PowerPoint and Excel. The ability of having your colleagues working on the same document at the same time, enriches the productivity levels.
