Office 2016 apps with Office 365 deliver new capabilities for better enterprise security and protection.

Office remains Microsofts single biggest product, with sales of $23.5 billion in the latest fiscal year.

Office 2016 is about reinventing productivity and business processes for the mobile-first, cloud-first world”.

Apple unveiled at its September 9 event earlier this month the brand new iPad Pro, a new device that’s pushing the company towards the productivity side of the market more than ever.

Of course, the promotion is only good for a year – users have to pay the full $70 for an Office 365 Personal subscription once their promotional period is up.

With Office 2016, your documents can travel with you across devices and the most recently used documents list allows users to pick up right where they left.

From today, Office 365 subscribers can download the new Office 2016 apps as part of their subscription and automatic updates will roll out to consumer and small-business subscribers from next month. Casual users can also get Office for free on Windows, but it’s a touch-optimized version with limited features, including a restriction that only one document can be opened at once.

A key feature of the new release is simplified collaboration. Rent the Warehouse also performs warehouse management using Office 365. That collection of connected apps includes Outlook 2016.
