Microsoft Redefines Mobility with Office Web Apps, Announces Start of Windows Live Hotmail Consumer Contest

11 Apr

Microsoft recently announced the availability of Office Web Apps, the newest enhancement to Windows Live Hotmail and online version of the world’s most popular productivity suite Microsoft Office, specifically designed to allow users to be in control of their work – anytime, anywhere.

“Microsoft continues to provide innovative technology to offer users the flexibility to work across their PC, phone and browser,” said Femee Cruz, Information Worker Product manager, Microsoft Philippines. “By making Office Web Apps available to the local market, Microsoft delivers a great productivity experience to its users and gives them the power to easily access their information at their own pace,” added Cruz.

Office Web Apps are the convenient, online, lightweight versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, which people can use to access, share and work on Office documents from virtually anywhere with an Internet connection — making it easy to bring ideas to life at home, school or work using any device.

Its great integration with Office gives users the ability to quickly and easily save and open documents from the Web, directly from Microsoft Office 2010. And because features available in Microsoft Office like text styles, spell-checking AutoCorrect, Clip Art, Sparklines and SmartArt Graphics are also made available online, Office Web Apps provide users with a consistent and familiar Office experience that they trust.

In addition to this, it is also seamlessly integrated with Windows Live, which lets users access, edit, collaborate and share documents with friends, family and co-workers around the globe.

With this innovation, users are equipped with a familiar working environment and the confidence that documents retain fidelity while working either in the cloud or offline, leaving content and format preserved while moving across devices.
