1. Save time and money by enabling your staff to work more effectively as a team.Office 2010 helps save time and money by providing easy to use document sharing from within Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, without the need to switch applications. With Office 2010, multiple team members can work on Word 2010 and PowerPoint 2010 documents and be able to see who else is working on what sections at the same time.

2. Gain control over your e-mail and calendar and stay protected.Outlook 2010 has some great new features including conversation management tools and mail tips which will help you stay organised and up-to-date at the click of a button.
Office 2010 also provides a Protected View feature to help you guard against malware in your e-mail attachments and Internet files, as well as in Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents.

3. Beat deadlines by using Office anywhere. With ever increasing members of a team needing to work from different locations worldwide, Office Web Apps allows you to review and make edits to documents in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote 2010 from any supported Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari browser.
