IT and the small church office – Part 5: Office Apps

The great stalwart of office apps is MS Office and with Office 2010 just around the corner I would always recommend it. However there are alternatives. If you’ve already signed up with Google Apps as your email solution then you’ve already got full access to Google Docs. But if you want to run things down on your PC and like the warm-fuzzy feeling of having your files on your harddisk (or NAS), but you don’t have a single red-cent left then you could always have a look at OpenOffice.

  1. Don’t forget that Microsoft (and several other companies) offer charity pricing. In the US, you need only be a registered tax-exempt organization, and find a software vendor who is authorized to sell MS OpenCharity licensing. Current pricing is about $60 per seat for Office or Windows. Server pricing is also quite attractive. CDW and Dell both offer MS Charity pricing.
