Microsoft has introduced Office 365 in Ghana extending availability of its cloud-based service across the African market in efforts to give users both online and offline experiences.
The service is already available in several countries across the continent with the latest coming to Zimbabwe last month.
Pratic Roy, the cloud services sales manager West, East and Central Africa, said: “Cloud technologies are fast becoming part of everyday life that is why Microsoft Office 365 makes sense for the African market.”
He said the Office 365 Home premium has been designed for busy households and people with family responsibilities.
Otema Yirenkyi, the country manager Microsoft Ghana, said: “We are committed to drive technology in Ghana with the latest applications for each business and communication and Office 365 will help increase productivity.”
Microsoft continues to make products available in countries across Africa with each of the suites targeting specific audiences such as small and medium businesses, educational institutions and non-profit organisations.
HumanIPO reported last month Microsoft had launched Office 365 for non-profit organisations in Kenya and Nigeria in efforts to help them streamline IT and focus on achieving social impact.
Office 365 comes with Microsoft Office, Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online and Lync Online to enhance communication and collaboration among businesses.
