Work More Efficiently and Effectively
The more intuitive look and feel, coupled with the improved tools, make Small Business 2007 the ideal software system to help you work faster to complete routine tasks and create more professional documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Task-based menus and toolbars automatically display the commands and options you can use, making it faster and easier to find the software features you need. Thanks to the Instant Search function to save you time, junk mail and anti-phishing filters to protect the security of your computer, and new graphics capabilities to help you produce publication-ready documents, (complete with logo, colours, fonts, and business information), this software can increase both your productivity and efficiency, while giving you more time to spend with your customers. And to help minimize time-wasting future edits, the Live Preview feature makes it easy to sample your changes before you apply them.

Improved Time Management
When work is busy, it's sometimes difficult to stay on-top of appointments and tasks. This is why Small Business 2007 lets you schedule tasks in Outlook that will appear on your calendar, while the To-Do bar presents a consolidated view of tasks, calendar information, and e-mail messages flagged for follow-up. To help effectively manage your time, take advantage of the templates and tools in Word, all of which make it easier to reuse content, so you don't have to start from scratch whenever you create a new document. And keeping track of important information is a snap thanks to new Excel tools for filtering, sorting, and visualizing information to help you find and analyse business data more effectively.

Manage Contact and Customer Information in One Place
To help you manage contact and customer information, Outlook with Business Contact Manager includes a complete contact management solution for small businesses that helps you deliver better customer service. This software enables you to organize all of your contact, prospect, and customer information, so it's easier to manage prospects, respond to customers, and manage your sales process in one place. Enhanced reporting features include over 50 reports that you can easily modify for your unique business needs, and new filtering capabilities help you forecast and close sales. You can also record all types of communications with a customer in one place-- including all e-mail, phone calls, appointments, notes, and documents-- and view a consolidated view of your sales pipeline by using a variety of flexible reports that you can easily modify for your unique business needs. You also can track and manage project tasks and even transfer tasks to coworkers. For added flexibility, you can work offline on your laptop or Pocket PC, and then synchronize data when you return to the office.

Produce Professional-Looking Marketing Materials and Campaigns In-House
Small Business 2007 makes it a snap to manage the entire marketing process so you save the time and expense of hiring an outside service. Create and distribute professional-looking marketing materials and campaigns for print, e-mail, and the Web by using Publisher. Then use Outlook with Business Contact Manager and Publisher together to track and manage marketing campaign activities, including compiling mailing lists, distributing materials, and tracking your results. You also can access the library of customisable templates in PowerPoint to create professional-looking presentations that enhance your business identity. If you need to merge information from multiple sources, combine and filter mailing lists and data from Excel, Outlook, Outlook with Business Contact Manager, and Access to create personalized print and e-mail materials and build customized collateral such as catalogs and data sheets.

Dynamic Presentations
One of the most effective ways to inspire both employees and customers is to impress them with a dynamic presentation. With its extensive library of customisable themes and slide layouts, PowerPoint helps you to create powerful charts, SmartArt graphics, and tables, while giving you the time-saving option of quickly previewing formatting changes so your final result is ready to go. You can also use the PDF file format for easier document distribution and high-quality printing. No matter what you need to help your business thrive, Small Business 2007 can make it possible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother. A very poor upgrade 29 Aug 2007
By Comical Engineer TOP 500 REVIEWER
As a business user I don't really have anything good to say about Office 2007. The new interface now requires 3-4 mouse clicks where 2-3 were needed previously. Many of the keyboard shortcuts no longer work or don't work the way they used to (I don't use the mouse very often). It's not possible to customise the menu structure to any extent as Microsoft have imposed the "ribbon" structure with it's fixed content.

Many of the highlight colours just don't stand out e.g. highlighting text is pink on a white background but highlighted buttons are a sort of yellow colour. There are also only 3 colour schemes available, blue, silver or black. None is particularly attractive and none is particularly clear. Differentiating between several windows often not easy because they are all similar colours.

As a heavy office user, I found the new version of office restrictive and un-instinctive, as if Microsoft have told me how i will work and what commands I will have easily available instead of me being able to select my own. Oh, and you can't even customise a macro button image now! Instead you have to use the ones provided which are an anonymous bunch at best.

you are restricted to a single row of custom buttons - the "quick access toolbar" but if you want the traditional icons on the bar (font, size, style) then you can only fit another 10 or so on the bar - which is restricted to a single line only. when visible, the ribbon occupies a massive amount of space (about 30mm of vertical height) thus restricting the amount of text that can be seen. There appears to be no option to relocate the ribbon, it's always along the top. Hiding the ribbon then needs a double click to bring it back.

I am struggling to express how frustrating I find this software. I am currently in the process of requesting a refund from MS and going back to Office 2003. Note that I can't find anything that 2007 does which 2003 didn't already do for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars MS Office 2007 SBE upgrade 25 Jan 2009
I have had this a week now the loading and setting up went very well, on XP, and on my laptop running Vista with all the updates, from Office 2000 Pro., love the new interface and colour set. Outlook looks good too and is easy to use, BUT, it is not very stable and keeps crashing, can't select plain text from the email format setting, and often shuts it's self down for no apparent reason, have searched on line for answers, but nothing came to hand, so disappointed with this. Lot's of folk are having problems with it. It needs MS to look at it and deal with it.

The ordering and delivery from Amazon was spot on. Thank you

Best wishes, Chris

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Office But Not As We Know It. 22 Jan 2009
By Andrew Kerr TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Microsoft Office 2007 Small Business Edition contains the following products - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Publisher. This is an upgrade version that can be installed on two different computers, but please note that you must have an excising edition of Microsoft office installed already (check the Microsoft Office website before buying).

This office suite offers a range of applications essential for both business users and home users. Providing the ability to complete a range of tasks such as create spreadsheets, presentations, and word documents. While not a great deal seems to be different from previous versions of Office, the Document Recovery Tool has been improved and is a welcome safe guard auto saving documents as you work. The software installation was quick and straightforward, and I've had no problems with the stability of the program as the software itself is working perfectly.

But unfortunately that's about all the positive things I can say about Office.

The new interface is somewhat different and you will either like it or hate it. Personally I don't like it because it takes longer (i.e. more clicks) to achieve the same function. But more annoying is that some of the features (in Word especially) seem difficult to find, and some of the keyboard shortcuts that worked in previous versions of Office no longer work in this version. The Word files types are not backwards compatible with previous versions of Office, but the software does allow you save files in the 'Word 97-2003' format which will work on previous versions, but again this requires an extra step to do so.

Despite the installation being quick, actually using the program and opening various documents take longer to do so, again wasting time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money 28 Dec 2008
By Jay L.
Verified Purchase
Yet another disappointment from microsoft. If like me you already own an Office version (2003 or later) don't bother to buy this 'upgrade', it doesn't have anything new to offer.

The new interface is VERY irritating, it takes several more mouse actions than in previous versions to acheive the same outcome. Most of the familiar functions are impossible to find.

Other irritations? Excel has a bug (well documented on user websites, but ignored by Microsoft): when you open a spreadsheet by double clicking the data file it doesn't display until you right click on the display area.

As with other MS bloat-ware, on my XP PC this application runs much more slowly than the 2003 versions.

Word files are not backwards compatible with other versions unless you force a 'Save As' previous version.

The only positive thing I cna say is that the new Outlook is much better than Outlook 2003, but in this case it keeps the 'old' (but easier to use) interface.
