Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Business Features
The Programs That Can Make a Business More Productive
The reason Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Business can provide so much potential to every user all comes down to the programs. Each program is designed to work closely with the others so that a single Office purchase can handle just about every requirement for a small business, a worker from home, a freelancer, or just a household computer.
Each program is packed with features that are well-organized and intuitive to use, allowing for a lot of capability without a lot of knowledge required to operate. The programs included in Microsoft Office 2013 Home and Business are:
Microsoft Word: The program that gets the most use for most users, Word is a text-based program that makes it possible to create any number of documents. It is equally capable of creating a resume, an invoice, a brochure, a report, a poster, or a business letter. Most document types come with templates that do all the difficult layout work for you.
Word in 2013: Edit PDFs and do some real-time co-authoring of documents with this edition, along with many other new features.
Microsoft Excel 2013: No business focused software suite would get very far if it didn’t help its users organize all the numbers and information that constantly affects them. With Excel, you’ll be able to better keep track of your budgets, your projects, and any other kind of information. Then, use calculations and graphs to learn more about your information.
Excel in 2013: Get more Pivot capabilities, new charts, and a quick analysis feature. There’s a new Flash Fill ability that provides more automation for users as well.
Microsoft OneNote: Keep track of information from meetings, interviews, and conferences with OneNote. You can combine all kinds of information types, from your typed notes, links, audio files, and more, so you’ll never lose out when the information comes to you in a different format.
OneNote in 2013: Work more effectively by adding in a hand-drawn element to your OneNote experience. You can now write notes by hand and add sketches and drawings that can be incorporated naturally into your notepad.
Microsoft PowerPoint: The supreme presentation program when you need to go out there and speak about your potential and your ideas to people. Easily organize your thoughts into neat points and add images, animations, and more to make your presentation more attractive.
PowerPoint in 2013: Make sure you don’t forget any of your talking points with the new Presenter View, which allows you to see your notes while the audience only sees your slides.
Microsoft Outlook: Keep up with bigger businesses by adding a new level of organization to your day and your communications with Outlook. You’ll have a more productive email experience, plus a more organized calendar and set of contacts.
Outlook in 2013: This version is even more organized. You can keep up with your social media through Outlook 2013, as well as keep all your contact information in a single, well organized place.
