Small businesses, like any businesses, face the daily challenges of managing their sales, marketing, and financial processes. Many different tools for addressing these challenges exist, such as pen and paper, software programs, and rolodexes. But this array of tools often results in confusion and time spent on data re-entry, which increases the likelihood of potential errors.
Office Small Business Management Edition 2006, planned for release in fall 2005, is a comprehensive management solution designed to address the needs of small business management with a single, integrated solution. It includes familiar Microsoft Office 2003 programs - Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Office Excel 2003, Microsoft Office Publisher 2003, Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003, Microsoft Office Access 2003 - plus two new products: Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager Update and Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting 2006.
