ASI Office Home CD

ASI Office Home CD

ASI Ability Office Home - a powerful, compatible and best of all, affordable Office applications suite for Windows-based PCs and Notebooks.

Product Overview

Delivered on CD, ASI Ability Office Home provides six feature-rich programs and, thanks to its compatibility with Microsoft Office, is just perfect for working from home, allowing files to be edited and exchanged with those back in the office, and is also absolutely ideal for students and school children.

Not only does ASI Ability Office Home provide all those essential applications that you'd expect from a top notch Office software suite, it also delivers you more than other alternatives - with a fully featured photo and image editor, a graphics organiser, vector line drawing and more.

It's so easy to get started with ASI Ability Office Home, thanks to its very familiar user interface. Absolutely no retraining is required when migrating to or from other Office packages. Load from, edit and save to Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Adobe Photoshop files, plus all other standard graphics and photo format files.

What's more, ASI Ability Office Home has a small install footprint and is extremely efficient with system resource usage, so unlike other Office software suites, it won't take up much of your valuable hard drive space and it won't slow your PC down when being used.

ASI Ability Office Home includes 2 licences for your personal use, so can be installed on up to two separate PCs.

NEW - now also Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2007 compatible.
