Do more with less

Keep up with the times with Windows 11 PCs and Office 2021

With support ending for Office 2013, now is the time to make the switch.

In the ever-evolving world of technology, staying up-to-date with the latest software releases and security patches is critical. To this end, we would like to bring to your attention an important development: since April 11, 2023, Microsoft no longer provides technical support or security fixes for Office 2013. This means that Office 2013 applications will no longer accept upgrades for remote work.

But what does this change mean for your company? Well, this means that Microsoft will no longer provide chat or phone technical support, bug fixes, or security updates for vulnerabilities discovered in Office 2013. Additionally, Microsoft Update will retire Office 2013 software updates. Support content updates will cease, as will most online help resources. While your Office 2013 applications will continue to work, their continued use exposes your business to serious security risks.

So now is the perfect time to take advantage of this opportunity.

We recommend recommending Office 2021 and Windows 11 to your customers because these solutions address the budget priorities, security needs, and productivity needs of a hybrid work environment. By making the switch, your customers can ensure their devices are up to date and equipped with the necessary features for efficient and secure remote collaboration.

A notable aspect of Office 2021 is its availability in ESD (Electronic Software Distribution) editions. “But what are the benefits of ESD?” First, the download process is fast and hassle-free, allowing users to access the software immediately after purchase. Second, ESD ensures 24/7 product availability, allowing customers to install or reinstall software at any time. Finally, no physical media is required, as purchases are secured and can be downloaded directly from the source.

When updating your customers’ software, remember the importance of selling genuine Windows 11 and Office Home & Business 2021. Genuine Software ensures that your customers have access to all the necessary applications to increase their business productivity in the most efficient and secure manner.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Upgrade today and take advantage of the latest software products to protect your business, increase productivity and shape the way work will be done in the future.
