Scenario 1:

A North American organization was upgrading from Office 2010 to Office 2016 and to Windows 10.
The organization needed to get 350 users (all English) up to speed quickly on the new features of Office 2016 features, as well as Windows 10.

The solution was to license customized versions of our “Office 2010 – 2016 New Features" guide, and our "Windows 10" guide”. The cost for these two guides (customized) for 350 users under a license agreement was $1950.00.

With the license was the option to purchase standard versions of the above guides at 50% off list price for employees who required the printed version.

Scenario 2:

An enterprise was deploying Office 2016 (desktop), Office 365, and Windows 10. It had over 100,000 employees (English and Spanish) in 4 countries, and wanted to provide their employees with quick reference guides to ease the transition.

It was determined that users would require the following guides:

  • Office 2010 – 2016 New Features
  • Excel 2016 - Word 2016 - Outlook 2016
  • Office 365 Introduction
  • SharePoint Online
