Today, thanks to you, the new Office is officially the best-selling Office edition yet, with more than one sold every second on average since it launched.
And if that wasn’t enough, in just over 100 days, you’ve made Office 365 Home Premium a hit with more than 1 million subscribers, putting it on pace with some of the most popular services around.
However, the numbers are only part of the story. At its core, Office exists to help people get things done, and people tell us they are choosing the service because it delivers full Office, it keeps them always up-to-date and it’s a fantastic value.
What’s truly exciting is how people are using the service and their newfound flexibility to do great things. From entrepreneurs who are realizing their dreams to families who are finding more time to connect. One of these people is Suzanne, a mom of 6 (gulp) and full-time support manager. She writes on the Office blog about how Office 365 Home Premium is working for her family.
“I feel like Office 365 Home Premium helps me be a better mom overall and more focused on the relationships in our house, not keeping up with schedules, schoolwork and the mountain of paper.”
At the end of the day, that is what technology should do for us–give us time for the things that matter most. For Suzanne, that’s spending time with her amazing family.
We’d love to know your story too. Tell us how you use Office to make your life and family run better on our Facebook page. We’ll publish a few of our favorites on the Office blog to help inspire others.
Thanks for inspiring us and for being part of our story.
