[prMac.com] New York, New York - Byte Squared, leading developers of critically acclaimed business productivity apps, announces the latest update to their suite of mobile office tools, Office(2). Focusing its efforts on streamlining group collaborations in business, Office(2) combines the core functionality of Microsoft’s Word, Powerpoint, and Excel programs within a single, localized app. Office(2)'s new change tracking feature is especially crucial for law firms and corporations where detailed markup of changes to documents is key to collaborating. Professionals of all backgrounds now have complete, 24/7 access to their documents and can receive, record, reject and accept edits without Internet connectivity. Office(2) makes dealing with the precise, yet ever changing details of contracts and internal documents easier than ever!
Byte Squared’s latest Office(2) update is perfect for any situation that requires group collaboration. New supported formats for Excel (.xlsx) and Powerpoint (.pptx) allow for document compatibility regardless of a user’s software version. The ability to track changes as well as view and edit comments lets groups seamlessly view and visually remark on exactly how each member contributes to (and ultimately impacts) a project. In addition, Office(2)‘s SkyDrive support allows individuals to store files in the cloud and access these files from any location.
“The latest updates to Office(2) are a direct response to the wishes of our loyal users, who’ve been clamouring for compatibility with .xlsx and .pptx formats,” said Simon Bates, CEO of Byte Squared. “The ability to track changes, as well as view and edit comments are also something that our users have frequently requested. This update really opens up a field of opportunities for Office(2), especially in business and legal environments. We’ve created a flexible, convenient, and efficient mobile productivity tool that is now even more suitable for professional use.”
