Volume discount for Microsoft Office

Postby gregcamie » Sun May 12, 2013 11:23 pm

I understand that Microsoft office is not a recommended software for clerk computers. Our stake however uses some very complicated spreadsheets that are best used in Microsoft Excel.

Our stake has made the decision to continue to use MS office.

Is there a way I can purchase MS office at the discounted price for non profit organizations as well as the discounted price for volume licensing established for the church?

The price difference is quite substantial and is worth the hassel to get this done.

Thanks for your help.

There is a discussion about this in the Microsoft Office License for MLS computers thread. This post in that thread provides some interesting information. The thread is over two years old so the information may be stale or may have changed.

If you want I can migrate your spreadsheet to LibreOffice. Since it will be a free service, you can spare that money for other more important issue for your stake, expecialy for members!
