Selling the Office 2010 Suites

Several steps have been taken to help ensure that Office 2010 is easy to sell.

Office 2010 has a simplified product lineup with clear names to make it easy to choose the right suite for your customers. Also, each suite contains all of the applications from the prior suite, plus one or more additional applications. That makes the upsell path to premium suites logical and compelling.
