Office Ultimate Discount Available for Students
Microsoft is using the back-to-school season as the backdrop for its latest promotion to increase sales of its Office 2007 productivity suite. Beginning today in the US, Canada, and UK, and beginning September 20 in Spain, Italy, and France the company is offering students the chance to purchase Office Ultimate 2007 for $59.95 USD. The promotion runs through April 30, 2008.
Office Ultimate includes nine applications from the suite including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, Publisher, OneNote, Groove, and Infopath. Microsoft had run a pilot program of the offering in Australia which received good results. "We're listening to students who have told us they need Microsoft Office for their studies and want more flexible ways to get the latest version," said Alan Yates, general manager of Worldwide Education at Microsoft. More information on the offering can be found on the Microsoft website.
