Microsoft Office Small Business Productivity Software

Microsoft Office Standard 2007 is the essential software suite for homes and small businesses that enables you to quickly and easily create great-looking documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, and manage e-mail. The latest release features the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface that exposes commonly used and familiar commands, enhanced graphics and formatting capabilities that enable you to create high-quality documents, new time management tools to help manage your schedule, and more reliability and security such as an improved junk e-mail filter to reduce spam e-mail. With these enhancements, Office Standard 2007 makes it easier and more enjoyable for you to get things done at home or work.
