Software Every Office Needs

Productivity in the office can be increased if staff has the right software. Although each office would require some unique software to improve productivity, there are applications that should be on every computer in any business setting;
Microsoft Word and Excel MS Word and Excel are two of the most popular programs in the world. MS Word is more than just a place to jot down notes, the program offers spell checking, word count and table options to increase versatility. MS Excel, Microsoft’s spreadsheet program has also become a must-have piece of software. It allows users to keep track and arrange information in a simple way.
Skype Although there are other VOIP services that can compete with Skype, it’s already considered a leader as well as the pioneer in the industry. The fairly recent inclusion of mobile phone support has made Skype a must for every business. Skype-to-Skype calls are also free allowing your business to save money on phone calls and unnecessary travel expenses.
Microsoft Outlook Just like MS Word and Excel, MS Outlook is a key piece of software for any business. The program removes the need to keep logging into email accounts and keeps all of your emails in one place. The software also allows users to schedule meetings and keep track of tasks.
Norton Antivirus Norton Antivirus is a powerful application that protects computer from a range of viruses. Aside from software and network security, Norton also provides options to back up your data.

At the office I am using the Microsoft Office packages, Skype and of course an anti-virus software.
Mircosoft Office is really great. I used to work in Linux using free imitations of Word and Excel but they are not as good.

I was never used to using Skype at office but after using it for the last year or so I can't believe how I was surviving without it. It is a very handy tool if you are liaising with clients because you can get instant responses and is great for small chit chats.

You can work on open office, it is the same then Office 2003. But if you like the fancy style and the new functions of Office 2007/2010, you have to pay.
Don't get me wrong but a huge number of big international companies don't use Outlook.
They use Lotus Notes by IBM, it's really ugly and buggy but you have some useful data base resources and apps build in. Also the applications are easy to code for the IT guys.
