We at empower® know Office like the back of our hand. We’ve spent years, day and night, learning the Office apps’ strengths and weaknesses. We love Office. But out of the box it’s not ideal for every user or situation. After all, Office is designed for a broad variety of users, so one size doesn’t fit all. Companies have different requirements than independent authors. Global teams need different tools than private users. Corporate design teams face formatting and brand discipline challenges. Office’s complicated functionality can compete against clarity and relevance.
That's why we started to revolutionize daily life with MS Office in 2005. We develop solutions that enable people worldwide to work with Office more easily, consistently, and efficiently. Our mission is to help users get the best results quickly so they have time to focus on their professions and things that really matter.
