Office 365 is officially available in the Philippines starting today, September 13, Karrie Ilagan, Managing Director for Microsoft Philippines, announced earlier. And to celebrate the launch, a Big Day Out happens today until Sunday in Glorietta Mall in Ayala, Makati. Simply ask for a demo of the Office 365 and one is entitled to a roulette giveaway with Office 365 novelty items as prizes. Also, anyone who buys a copy Office 365 at any participating retail stores in Glorietta will be given a chance to win one (1) of three (3) Nokia Lumia 925 up for the raffle prize. This promo is from Sept. 13 up to Nov. 03, 2013.
Office 365 gives a different user experience where ‘everybody can bring their work anytime, anywhere‘.
“Not only that we wanted to make an impact with our consumers and be able to talk about Office 365 as a product for the end-user. What a lot of people don’t realize that today when you look at The Office that you are buying gone are the days when you buy it on a disc from the store,” Tovia Va’aelua, Office Lead, Microsoft Philippines, shared the most notable feature of the Office 365 that what a consumer is buying is actually the serial number itself minus the disc.
And to feel the vibe, we visited one of the Office 365 booth inside Glorietta 4 and we were helped with a demo from Precious Lim, Microsoft Philippines employee. Microsoft Big Day Out showcases that Microsoft employees and partners are “walking the talk” – using Microsoft technologies in action like Office 365. The event exhibits that Office 365 provides people with the no-compromise productivity experience in the modern workplace – the office that goes beyond the walls of the building wherever, whenever they go, accessible through whichever device they have.
Precious, while, delivering the demo, told us that if you have installed Windows 8, expect to have an upgrade by October 18 for Windows 8.1. The good news, it’s a free upgrade.
“The flexibility and freedom that Office 365 gives are very much aligned with our working style in the industry. As we are always on-the-go, persistently on call and attending meetings with our clients, we need a solution that powers us to work whenever we please. Since we can access work through our personal mobile devices, we can make sure we don’t miss deadlines and requirements. Office 365 is exactly what we need,” said Fritzie Guath-De Jesus, Business Unit Director from Microsoft’s partner agency Universal McCann.
The Office 365 is available for Php 3,999.00 in retail stores and can be installed in 5 devices including Android and iPhones.
