Yorkshire Cloud launches Office 2013

Jonathan May 3, 2013 0 Comments

Microsoft released Office 2013 recently, and we’re sure that many people are curious about what’s new and improved. Fortunately, Yorkshire Cloud customers don’t need to go through the hassle of upgrading Office themselves.

We recognise that Office is one of the core pieces of software our customer use, and upgrading to a major new software version can be confusing and disruptive. That’s why we’ve got demo servers set up ready for our customers to trial Office 2013 at their own pace. (If you’re an existing customer – please get in touch to start your free trial).

Even better, when our customers are ready to upgrade to Office 2013, they won’t pay a penny extra. The upgrade is fully included in their flat monthly fee.

So, what’s new in Office 2013? Well, there’s a whole host of improvements, some big, some small. The most noticeable changes are that the interface now looks very minimal, much like Windows 8. Also, Office is now fully compatible with touchscreen devices like the latest smartphones, tablets and some laptops. However, we expect that most people will still prefer to use a keyboard & mouse for any serious work.

Is Office 2013 difficult to get used to? We don’t think so. In fact, if you’re used to Office 2010, you’ll probably be able to just pick up Office 2013 with virtually zero training. And if you do need some assistance, our skilled Yorkshire Cloud engineers are always happy to help.

Yorkshire Cloud is proud of the fact we offer the latest & greatest software to our customers. We want to make IT easy for your business, so we’ll help you assess if Office 2013 is right for you. We’ll wait until you’re 100% ready to make the change, and then we’ll hold your hand through the whole process.

To see if a Hosted Desktop with Office 2013 is right for your business, please contact us on 01423 206062
