Can Tradepoint Replace Microsoft Office
To re-create the Microsoft Office
Suite ourselves would be a VAST undertaking. It was a thought but we
decided the best plan of action was to let Tradepoint directly communicate with
the Office suite.
Here is something interesting
though. In the Microsoft Office Suite there are these most used
- Access: Most of the time this
is used because you need it to manage systems or "middle wear" systems that
don't communicate. For instance: You would have a stock list and
you want to keep your website stock updated as well so you create an access
database to help your staff communicate between the two and keep both
updated. Because Tradepoint is so comprehensive you will, or should,
never need this application ever again.
- Excel: Same scenario as with
Access. Most of the tasks that Excel is used for are to "bridge the gap"
between systems that don't communicate.
- Outlook: Replaced by
Tradepoint's email module.
- Project: Overly
complex software that makes project management more complicated than just
doing the project on its own. Replaced by Tradepoint's project
Used for all presentations which can then be organized using Tradpeoint's
document management system.
- Word: The word
processor of choice for most people...fully integrated with Tradepoint's
document management and mail merge systems.
Well out of that entire list there is only one
application that is truly needed: Word. Toss all of the rest and
their licensing fees and vastly reduce your cost per
