Documents of all kinds, anywhere, as robust as you need them to be

What do you like best?

Microsoft Word has decades of experience on the market as one of the finest word processors there are and easily the market leader for most of its lifespan.

Word allows for documents of all types as simple as basic note taking to the most robust and heavily formatted reports.

From your kid's letter to your company's advanced briefing full of tables, hyperlinks, graphics and media.

Microsoft Word allows for nearly limitless formatting letting you design the exact document you want and need; it allows exporting to other popular file types just as PDF and is available pretty much anywhere now from computers to smart devices, tablets and the like

What do you dislike?

Expensive, for as very few changes it receives with each iteration you'd expect the price would be lower but it is still a premium package.

Security concerns have been an issue in the past

It is a massive and unnecesary resource hog

Recommendations to others considering the product

Beware the resources it needs to operate, consider disable auto start options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word is the go to word processor we have used on every company I've ever worked for each and every document we had to create.

Easy to use word processor

What do you like best?

The thing that I like best about Microsoft Word is how easy it is to use. Usually, it takes time for us to train our employees on how to use programs and systems that we use on a regular basic at work. However, because Microsoft Word is both so widely used and easy to navigate, it almost never requires us to train employees on how to use and get the most out of the program. Also, because Microsoft Word is built like the other Microsoft products - Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc.) our users become familiar with one program and they are able to navigate them all. This is a hugely convenient thing to our company. I also like how Microsoft Word is compatible with the other Microsoft programs. So, I am able to easy import an Excel chart that I have created into a Word document or a PowerPoint presentation. Microsoft Words ease of use and compatibility make it a great program for my company.

What do you dislike?

I have experienced that Microsoft Word has a tendency to crash. There have been numerous times when I have been working on large documents and Microsoft Word freezes and either crashes or forces you to manually force the program closed and restart it. This almost always causes me to lose some of my work. Even though I have my Word account set-up to automatically save my documents every few minutes, the crashes still set me back and are an inconvenience and waste of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Microsoft Word to any company that creates any type of documents. Microsoft Word is user friendly and easy to navigate. Microsoft Word allows you to customize its toolbars and setting to suite your individual needs. It is also compatible with the other Microsoft Office Suite products, making it easy to integrate documents, charts, graphs and presentations (among others).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word allows us to securely share documents that contain sensitive information since the program allows you to secure documents with a password. Microsoft Word also allows you to assign permissions to documents. So, I can allow people only to have access to view a document or I can grant them full editing permissions. This feature has been good for my company because we deal and pass around so many secure documents. Most of the documents require a password to be shared over email. So, Microsoft Word has helped us adhere to our security standards.

The most popular in the area

What do you like best?

Popularity, i have to say it, the first thing that comes to my mind when i hear "text processing" is Word. Since i was a child im using Word and is the default choice of everyone. Because of that everytime im creating/editing a document i have the confidence that wherever i go i can find a Cyber Cafe, plug my pendrive and keep working. If i'm creating/editing a document for a client/familiar/friend i know that they are using Word too, so i can use the full potential of Word.

What do you dislike?

Lack of compatibility with other text editors. I struggle every time i have to migrate my documents from Word to another text editor. I feel like everything crash, all the margins and lines misconfigured, some images misplaced, etc. Sometimes i have to stay an hour just reconfiguring all again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a text editor that have a wide acceptance in the market, Word is what you looking for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need a standardized text editor because i wanted to do the editing/creating job just one time and not do it twice because of incompatibility issues between text editors. I found a solution with Word.

I use microsoft word for everything

What do you like best?

Microsoft word is so versatile and is my only and definitely my go to word processing software. I have also recently discovered that it can be used to design surveys. The program comes with preloaded templates and you just modify them according to your preferences.

What do you dislike?

I have been using Word for a long time, but every few years it gets updated to a different version. I tend to dislike the updates because things move around, and it becomes more difficult to find the most common functions that I am used to. Also, the automatic formatting can sometimes get on my nerves. I may not be familiar with all of the functions available in word.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest that Microsoft word is probably a necessity for anybody who does any amount of writing. This is a standard software for word processing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use microsoft word to take notes, document processes, write papers, prepare surveys. It is a great way to stay on track and speaking of tracks, track changes are very helpful when working with coauthors on paper revisions. One benefit of having an easily accessible document system is it allows me to email word documents to myself, which I can then view on other computers or even on the Internet through my email.
