WPS Office Replaces Microsoft Office for Computer Technician

WPS Office Delivers the Benefits of a Robust Office Software Suite, Without the Cost.


 

“ I've been through them all; WordPerfect, MS Works, Microsoft Office, but WPS Office is very simple and user friendly (and) is still the most cost effective software suite. ”

Bert Roseblade, Retired Computer Technician


The Problem

Bert Roseblade is a retired computer technician in Ontario, Canada, with more than 30 years of experience using office software. Most recently, he was responsible for installing and training both high school and elementary school teachers on how to use software for curriculum purposes. Today, he uses WPS Office as his office software of choice for all of his personal needs.

Bert was ready to upgrade from Windows Office 2000 to Office 2007, but found the cost of Microsoft software to be well beyond what was affordable as a retiree on a fixed income pension. His wife had purchased a new laptop which came preloaded with WPS Office, so he decided to download the free version of WPS Office for himself as a trial, hoping it might be a good substitute for Microsoft Office 2007.

The Solution

The trial was a success! Bert immediately began using WPS Office and has never looked back, saying that “for all I do, I just love it!”

Bert continues, “I’ve been through them all – WordPerfect, MS Works, Microsoft Office – but WPS Office is very simple and user friendly. Even if I were to purchase a license for it, WPS Office is still the most cost effective software suite, in comparison. But I don’t mind the ads in exchange for the free version.”

In addition to the ease of use and no-cost advantages, Bert has found some features in particular to be valuable, such as the availability of hundreds of templates for each application. Unlike Microsoft Office, Bert finds that the templates in WPS Office are easy to access and he doesn’t have to spend time looking for them.

The PDF to Word Converter in WPS Office is another valued feature. “Microsoft Office doesn’t have anything similar, and it’s a very convenient tool to have,” says Bert. “I find that a lot of online instructions are in a PDF format and, if you want to print them out, it’s much easier and faster to convert them to a Word document.”

Another differentiating feature that Bert acknowledges is the fact that the apps within the WPS Office software suite are bundled together, making them easily accessible. He’s not required to open each individual app – Writer, Spreadsheets, Presentations or the PDF Converter – separately. They neatly coexist for a simple and streamlined user experience.

“ WPS Office is a great product and if I were still working with schools in a software installation and training capacity, I’d certainly recommend it for the classroom. It’s much easier to use than competitive solutions and at far less cost.”

How it works

WPS Office Suite is a complete suite that includes Writer, Presentation, Spreadsheets, and a built-in PDF reader, in an easy to use and familiar user interface. The suite offers complete compatibility with Microsoft Office Documents, as well as more than 230 fonts and hundreds of free templates. Integration with cloud providers such as Google Drive, Drop Box and Box gives users the ability to collaborate with others and support business operations.

WPS Office has a free Mobile Office Suite for Android that allows users to view, edit, and create Office documents anywhere. WPS Office has more than 550 million Android users and has received over 1,000,000 reviews on Google Play. The application is fully compatible with MS Office and Google Docs and is available free with no subscription required. WPS Office also offers a free Mobile Office Suite for iPhone and iPad, which is fully compatible with Microsoft Office and Google Docs and supports English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and Japanese.

“WPS Office is a great product and if I were still working with schools in a software installation and training capacity, I’d certainly recommend it for the classroom,” says Bert. “It’s much easier to use than competitive solutions and at far less cost – no small consideration when it comes to working with tight education budgets.”
