Softwire MD Zoe Cunningham hosting the Microsoft Office 365 Launch today
30 January 2013, by Chris Harris
Today our MD Zoe Cunningham is out and about on the Office 365 bus to launch the latest version of Microsoft Office (Office 365)! Tune in to www.catchthe365.com to catch her or follow on Twitter at #catchthe365.
Sharing a name with a previous cloud based offering, Office 365 contains many of these cloud features – for example the default save location is your online Sky Drive. Other new features include: new visualisations and layout, new graphical options in Word and online picture support.
The UK launch looks to be pretty spectacular. Microsoft have hired a double decker bus, and enlisted live bands, magicians, street performers and bloggers to create a full day event. They are focussing on people who use Office in a home, rather than work, environment, with guests from the worlds of food, cooking, sport and parenting.
Star guests include Tess Daly, Will Greenwood and online celebrities including “mummy bloggers” Sally Whittle and Bridget MacPherson.
