Microsoft has launched its Office for Mac 2011 desktop suite in South Africa, with a strong focus on collaboration and social networking tools that it says will allow users to work with colleagues and friends anywhere, anytime, and across platforms.
After more than two years Mac users will be happy to hear that Office for Mac 2011, the latest version of the productivity suite, will be in stores in 100 countries including South Africa by the end of October 2010.
The new version of Mac Office, the first major revision for the suite since 2008, also includes Outlook as its e-mail client for the first time, replacing Entourage.
Speaking at the launch in Sandton yesterday afternoon, Lance Thorp, Entertainment and Devices Lead, said that more than ever before, Office for Mac 2011 brings the familiar productivity tools and features of Microsoft Office to a suite of applications that work brilliantly on the Mac.
“With the many new exciting feature additions and improvements, this version is shaping up to be the best of Office for Mac yet”.
In store from 26 October locally, the suite will come in two editions at retail, both available with either a single user license, or a multiple user option – Office for Mac Home and Student 2011 (R999- R1299) and Office for Mac Home and Business 2011 (R2499- R2699).
