  1. Ease of use
  2. Versatility
  3. Compatibility
  4. Downloadability

Note: Free Blog Site’s list of the best office software tools for 2017 excludes cloud / browser-based office applications and mobile-only programs.

Microsoft-Office-logo

Best Windows-based Business-Level Office Software: MICROSOFT OFFICE

Microsoft Office is the clear Windows-based office software leader for business use. While home users and students will find it an excellent tool, it’s in the business area that the full power of this comprehensive office suite really shines. Microsoft Office comprises a complete suite of programs and tools, including Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher and Access.

It doesn’t take long for users to become familiar with how Microsoft operates. It’s also scalable, so businesses can purchase extra user licenses as the business grows. Users can access and edit files on any computer, mobile device or smartphone with the web apps, so users can stay productive even on the morning commute. Microsoft has been the most popular office and productivity software for decades. However, with older versions of Microsoft Office, one major issue was that users couldn’t access the software and their documents between different devices. That is no longer the case. The latest Microsoft Office software has improved on the quality of former versions and made it possible to access and edit your files between devices, ensuring Microsoft’s position as the supplier of ‘gold standard of office software’.

Word Perfect Logo

Best Windows-based Office Software for General Use: WORDPERFECT

WordPerfect is our choice as the best office software for all-around use. It’s a solid general-purpose office suite that’s suited to home, school and even business users. While it doesn’t offer quite as many different programs as some of the other suites, it covers everything a general user would need. You get a word processor, spreadsheet software, a slideshow program, a digital notebook, and photo-editing software, along with clip art images, training videos, a drawing application and a bitmap editor. This software suite has a PDF editor and is compatible with Microsoft Office, so you can view and edit Microsoft Office files from the WordPerfect programs. For aspiring authors, the suite includes an eBook publisher. To help you save storage space and improve the SEO of any of your online endeavors, you can make use of the metadata-stripping function. While WordPerfect has been around for a long time and has users world-wide, it carries a moderate to high price tag, depending on whether you choose the Home & Student, Standard, or Professional edition. Each edition is a fully functional office suite, but with major feature differences.

Apache Open Office

Best Free ‘Open-Source’ Office Software for Education: APACHE OPENOFFICE

Apache OpenOffice is a free, open-source software package that runs on Windows, Mac and Linux systems. It’s a popular alternative to Microsoft Office for those who don’t need cloud storage or remote access to documents.
Apache OpenOffice is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers. It stores all your data in an international open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for any purpose.
Being free, open-source and versatile Apache OpenOffice is a great office software solution for education. It can legally be given to students for use at home and on school computers without any user number restrictions. OpenOffice is a great choice for teaching students essential computer literacy skills without forcing educators and students to buy specific commercial products. It’s built as component-based software, so it’s also a smart option for teaching the principles of software engineering. In addition to word processing and spreadsheets, OpenOffice performs calculations, creates and solves mathematical equations, creates and edits complex databases. It also makes multimedia presentations, allowing students to unleash their creativity through drawing.

Microsoft Office For Mac Logo

Best Mac Office Software Suite: MICROSOFT OFFICE FOR MAC

Microsoft Office for Mac 2016 is great office software for Mac users, allowing you to create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations and to connect with others easily. It is extremely powerful in that it includes a variety of applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Access and Publisher, which is more than the standard trio found in most other office productivity software suites. The software is easy to use and can help you tackle even your most daunting projects. However, you have to upgrade your Mac computer to the latest OS X El Capitan version in order for the software to download and work. The software’s powerful editing and creating capacity is what earns it a place on our list of top office software.

While there are other Apple office software products available, including iWork and Thinkfree, they are both only available as browser-based offerings and therefore did not make our list.

What to Look For When Purchasing Office Software

Whether you’re a business owner, student or a writer, it’s likely that you will make a lot of use of your office software, so it’s important to select the best office software for your needs. Regardless of your budget, office software should be seen as an investment, and the following factors may help when making your purchasing decision.

Software & Tools:
The most obvious and perhaps most important factor to consider is what software and tools come with your office suite. A word processor that can handle complex tasks like writing dissertations and books is essential to many users, while some place more importance on the quality and capability of the included spreadsheet software. Other common inclusions are a drawing program and a presentation builder. Some suites also include photo-editing software.
Some office software bundles include communication and organization tools and software, such as email programs, calendars and organizers. These can prove useful for busy individuals who need a little help to stay on schedule.

Supported File Formats:
If you’re using multiple programs from different companies, or perhaps someone you communicate with and share files with uses a different office suite, it’s crucial that you can still access those files. Therefore, make sure the office software you choose supports a large range of file formats and includes the ones you use most frequently.

Licenses:
The number of licenses each software purchase gives you is really important. Some office suites only provide one license for one PC or one user per purchase, while others, like OpenOffice, are free and have no user limits. Some, like Microsoft Office, let you purchase one license per user and scale up the number of users or licenses as your business grows.

Support:
Whether you’ve been using office suites for decades or you’re brand-new to computing, having solid support on hand can make all the difference. While you can find answers to many questions online and from user-generated content in forums, having bona fide help from the software developer can save you a huge amount of time when you’re learning the ropes or when something goes wrong. The best office suites have robust FAQs and tutorials for self-help, along with product and technical support available via email, telephone or live chat. Some also have dedicated forums where you can get help from official representatives and other users.

WordPress.com: It’s Not Really Free

While a basic WordPress.com blog at yourname.wordpress.com is free, if you need more features, they charge extra! The following functionality is charged as a WordPress.com premium upgrade – the true cost of a FREE WordPress.com blog / website account:

  1. Domain Name Mapping & Registration: Remove ‘wordpress’ from your URL and use your own domain. Note: you still have NO FTP access to your files or ability to add 3rd party themes, plugins or code. Cost $13.00 – $25 per domain p.a.
  2. Custom Design Font + CSS Editor: Lets you customize fonts + stylesheets, but not edit PHP or template files. Cost $30.00 p.a.
  3. No-Ads: Remove WordPress adverts from your blog. You are still not permitted to add your own ads e.g. AdSense, affiliate links, sponsored / paid posts or any kind of prohibited code. Cost $30.00 per annum.
  4. Video Upload: Embed video in your blog posts and pages. You may need a space upgrade too! Cost $60.00 per annum.
  5. Space: Increase from 3GB to 10GB, 25GB, 50GB, 100GB, 200GB + add ability to upload audio / music. Cost $20 – $290 p.a.
  6. Bundles: A combination of upgrades 1 – 5 above at a discounted price. Cost from $99 p.a. depending on space required.
  7. Premium Themes: Add options for site customization + a limited selection of premium themes. Note: You are still not permitted to upload your own or 3rd party premium themes or plugins. One-time cost typically $50 per theme.
  8. Site Redirect: Have WordPress.com redirect yourblogname.wordpress.com pages & posts to a new domain. Cost $13.00 p.a.
  9. Guided Transfer: Have WordPress.com move your blog permanently to your self-hosted website. Cost $129.00 per transfer.

By now it should be obvious that, unless you are happy with no ‘bells and whistles’ and for ads for other websites and services to appear alongside your own content, a WordPress.com blog / website is NOT FREE. More important: if you want to brand your blog and use your own domain name (why wouldn’t you?), add extra functionality and use a premium theme, it’s going to cost you!

In fact, a self-hosted WordPress website with a $50 premium theme on a $9.99 per month hosting plan that you own and control 100%, will cost you less in year 1 than a WordPress.com blog with a $99 upgrade bundle & $50 premium theme! So if you are serious about your business and your business website, WordPress.com may not the best choice for several reasons, not least price!

If the thought of getting your own hosting and setting up your own WordPress website using your own domain name is daunting – don’t worry! We offer either a free WordPress set-up service when you purchase hosting through our affiliate links (they pay us a commission to cover our costs), or a low-cost paid WordPress set-up service if you already have your own hosting and want to use a premium domain and theme.

The #1 status and popularity of WordPress is due to its ease of use, flexibility, and is free to download. Not just used for blogs, WordPress is a very powerful website publishing platform many thousands of themes and plugins available to download capable of running a large business website, online shop or web application with cutting edge features and functionality that can be used on any device from a mobile phone upwards.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Which WordPress?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456472532755-f0e2d24f-bffb”]We set up WordPress.org software on your ‘self-hosted’ server. This is different to WordPress.com which is a network hosted account where your site is simply part of their network. Blogger.com and Facebook.com accounts are similar in that respect; they own the content not you. A WordPress.com account is more for hobbyists as they also restrict your use of themes, plugins and your ability to customise your site or use it to make money. You are also bound by their terms as to the content you can publish e.g. no advertising or affiliate links are allowed (they add their own ads to your site unless you pay for ‘no ads’) and if you violate their terms your site can be terminated without warning. If you want a serious or business website you need a self-hosted WordPress website like the ones we set up for free.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”My WordPress?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456472623887-a917cb26-7f20″]WordPress.org makes the same software used WordPress.com freely available for anyone to download and used on their own hosting without any restriction as to use. While the software can be set up as a multisite network exactly like WordPress.com with limitations imposed by the network owner, that is NOT what we offer. We offer our customers a completely autonomous WordPress website on your own hosting account, that’s 100% yours to do with as you wish.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Hosting WordPress?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456472666744-61b5dce3-07ef”]With thousands of self-proclaimed best web hosting services it can be difficult to choose the best host for your needs, especially if this is your first website. Because web hosting is one of the key factors that can make or break a website, you need someone you can rely on to help you make the right hosting decision. Having been involved in IT since the 1980’s and actively designing, developing and hosting client websites since before Year 2000, we believe we are well qualified to guide you in this very important choice.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Hosting Cost?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456472745575-726acf20-7e78″]Hosting prices are subject to change. For the most up-to-date hosting prices, enter your name, choose a domain and you will see all the different pricing options for the hosting accounts and extras. Packages tend to vary from around $9.95 to $24.95 per month depending on which plan you choose and whether you prepay your hosting. You’ll get a bigger discount when you pay annually rather than monthly but very often your first 30 days are free with a monthly package, making it an easier decision to try it out.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Signing Up?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456472871074-461814c3-6920″]Simply sign-up for a hosting account with any one of the hosting providers linked to here.

Do NOT use any external coupons or other links on any other websites as we would not get our commission and you would not then be qualified to take advantage of our ‘free WordPress set up’ offer.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What’s included?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456472918645-4626053f-7502″]Depending on the package you choose many partner webhosts allow you to host an unlimited number of websites on an unlimited number of domains on a single cPanel account, however our FREE WordPress set up offer is limited to one website per hosting account. We can set up more websites after the first one, for a small fee. Many webhosting partners offer Free Google Adwords credits. They all offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee and a 30-day money back guarantee. Reliable and professional email and phone customer support is available if at any time you have a problem with your website, often 24/7 depending on the package chosen.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why Free?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456473051757-a804787f-6b8a”]You may be wondering why we offer to set up your WordPress website for free. To enable us to keep our free WordPress set up business model viable and provide you with this service, we require users to sign-up for hosting with one of our partner webhosting companies. Partners are selected because they offer high quality hosting + superior customer service. This ensures you get quality web hosting (you’ll need it anyway) and we earn commission from our partners for referring new clients. Everybody wins! Our in-house team also offer paid services such as graphic design, website tweaking, modifications and even custom website design services to our client base.

Currently if you buy a domain through our webhosting partners it costs $14.95. While you may find cheaper domain registration elsewhere, you’ll need to change the nameservers yourself before it will work with your new webhosting account. This may add 24-48 hours to the time it takes to set up your website while we wait for the nameservers to propagate.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Already got hosting?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456473198423-85175a90-8a3e”]Yes.

Then when you email us your hosting purchase receipt details, simply tell us you are using a domain you already own and we will send you instructions on how and what to change your nameservers to. Note: nameserver changes can delay your site set up by 24-48 hours.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Any limitations?” icon=”0″ icon_closed=”0″ el_id=”1456473261072-536c1716-aefe”]With a WordPress.org self-hosted website you don’t have the same limitations as you would have with a WordPress.com site.

Your website set up is normally completed within 24-48 hours (not guaranteed) but can take longer if you are using your own theme or an existing domain while we wait for your nameservers to change. You will be purchasing your domain name (unless you own a domain already) and your hosting package where your WordPress website files are stored with one of our webhosting partners. If you are ever unhappy with this hosting service you can cancel your hosting account at any time and take your WordPress website files with you.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Already got a website hosting account?

No problem. We can still help you, but would need to charge a small fee instead. Contact us to request a quote, or view our prevous work for examples of what we can do for you.

Already got a WordPress premium theme?

No problem. We can still help you, but MAY need to charge a small fee as some premium themes are more complex than many of the free WordPress themes that you can choose from the WordPress repository. Contact us to request a quote, or view our prevous work for examples of what we can do for you.

Why Choose Us to set up your WordPress website?

Our in-house WordPress team has hand-built dozens of bespoke client websites since Year 2000, so we’ve got a LOT of experience and know what works and what doesn’t. Increasingly, a lot of our work is based on the WordPress CMS platform using premium themes rather than starting from scratch – it’s quicker and much cheaper for our clients – yet still produces a professional looking and feature-rich website at a much more affordable price than ever before.
