The “New Office”, as Microsoft likes to call the latest version of their suite of productivity software, will be available from Wednesday (30 January 2013) in South Africa in both subscription and once-off purchasing variants.

This is according to Uriel Rootshtain, business lead of the Office division at Microsoft SA.

Retailers and resellers alike will have both Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Office 2013 in store, ready to sell tomorrow,  Rootshtain said.

Microsoft’s new Office comes in two variants, Rootshtain went on to explain:

  • Office 365: a subscription service with constant updates; and
  • Office 2013: a stand-alone purchase with disc media included in the box.
