Regardless of your opinion about Microsoft – they give us non-profits some PHENOMINAL price breaks! How about Office2007 Enterprise Edition with Software Assurance at around $100!
Recently MS dropped their Office Home Use Program price down to $9.95! That means if you have an active software assurance license for your organization, your staff can purchase Office2007Enterprise or Office2008 for Mac for $10 for home use! What an amazing deal. Another benefit of Software Assurance is that your staff has access to some pretty slick online Office training via Microsoft.
And don’t forget that Software Assurance also gives you upgrade rights .. so for GCC when Office2010 is released we’ll get it at no charge .. sweetness!
So next time you purchase Microsoft Office for you organization I’d strongly encourage you to check out adding Software Assurance .. and FWIW, we get our software through Dell.
