Apple users can now get the same productivity services and applications Microsoft device owners get with the latest Office 365 made available for installation on OS and iOS gadgets. Power Mac Center, the premier Apple partner in the Philippines, and Microsoft Philippines teamed up to make this happen. 

“Power Mac is truly committed to provide Filipino consumers the complete Apple experience,” Power Mac Center marketing director Joey Alvarez said during the launch. He also acknowledged that they are always looking for ways to support the needs of their loyal patrons, which makes the launch a highly anticipated event among the latter.

Office 365 comes with a group of productivity softwares which is now accessible on multiple devices with a single subscription. Furthermore, Microsoft’s Office 2016 comes with every subscription of Office 365 Personal, Office 365 Home, or Office 365 University.

The latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, OneDrive, Skype and Outlook provides Mac users the best of both worlds with familiar Office experience paired with Apple’s very own office suite iWork. 

Apart from being synched across multiple devices, Office 365 also provides 1TB OneDrive online storage that can be accessed anytime, anywhere. For constant connection, this latest version allows users to stay connected with 60 minutes of free Skype calls per month to landline and mobile phones in more than 60 countries.

Subscription to Office 365 assures that one’s version of Office is always up to date as users need not worry about upgrading again as Office 365 comes with the latest Office applications, features and services.

Power Mac Center marketing director Joey Alvarez talks about the benefits Apple users will get from Office 365, as brand ambassadors Alex Diaz, Chienna Filomeno and Sophia Andres listen
“This partnership is a key milestone for Microsoft Philippines as we make Office 365 available across all platforms in the mobile-first, cloud-first world. Microsoft’s mission is to empower every individual and organization to achieve more. And we’ve taken this to heart by breaking down ‘competitive barriers’ and partnering with Power Mac Center,” enthused Microsoft Philippines director for consumer business division Jerry Bongco. 

“We want to make Office accessible across all platforms, most especially in a wide range of Apple devices,” he declared.
