Office 365 is the next iteration of the company’s flagship Office product line which is made available for consumers, businesses and educational institutions via the cloud, the statement added.
“Office 365 is available in various packages, each one specifically designed to meet a particular need,” says Marc Israel, Office Division Group Lead for Microsoft West, East and Central Africa and Indian Ocean Islands.
“This means that whether you are a consumer, educational institution, small to mid-size business or a large enterprise, we have an Office 365 package that will meet all your software requirements in in an always-up-to-date cloud service, at a predictable monthly cost”, Israel added. In Africa in particular, the Small and Medium Business sector continues to play a big, contributing heavily towards GDP growth and employment. The United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) estimates that SMEs represent over 90 percent of private business and contribute more than 50 percent of employment and of GDP in most African countries.
“One of the biggest challenges SMBs face in today’s harsh economic conditions is finding technology that meets their needs without breaking the bank,” he said, adding, “Just because your company is smaller, it does not mean you should have to compromise on the type of technology available to you.”
