Microsoft Office, one of the most office productivity suites has released its latest version. Office 2013 is easy to use, reliable and will therefore continue to be the ultimate choice of many people. The various editions of it are just capable of offering all the applications for every need and every lifestyle. These new editions bring with them a wealth of benefits and new features. If you aren’t sure which edition is suitable for you, what is its structure, price details and its benefits, this post will be able to help you out.

When new version of Office 2013 was announced, only the consumer preview version was made available for public use – although TechNet and MSDN subscribers did have access to the RTM versions. While the pricing structures for Office 2013 and office 365 were already available, after much waiting Microsoft has also made available and revealed the final versions and the pricing structure for its Office 2013 packages via official Microsoft Online Store.

Purchasing a new version of Microsoft Office Today  is different from the past because you now have three choices.

1) Outright Purchase of Microsoft Office – The traditional way for purchasing Office. A one-off purchase that needs updating every 3 or 4 years. (ie Office 2013), you can also purchase individual programs such as Word, Excel, Outlook, Visio etc. this way.

2) Monthly or Annual Microsoft Office subscription Fee  – Office 365 provides the option of paying an ongoing monthly or annual fee for access to Office which ensures you always have the latest updates and version of the software. Some versions of 365 can be installed on up to 5 devices for the one periodic fee.

3) Monthly Subscription Fee Microsoft Exchange only – If you want to use your current version of office or another mail client such as Mozilla Thunderbird, you have the option of purchasing only Microsoft Exchange if you own your own domain name.

If cashflow is important to you or your business then the 365 option would be your preference.
