Most of us use the Microsoft Office in our professional life. But when it comes to personal life it is somewhat expensive to buy and renew Microsoft Office license. What if you get a free software which will replace the MS office and you don't need to spend money on it. Excited? This free software about which I am talking is Kingsoft office (WPS office). Be aware that Kingsoft Office has a paid version also.This is true that both the software are not same. But the differences doesn't hamper the value they offer. You can also download office free by scrolling down.
I was working in the organization in which there was a cost reduction project where the employee can give the suggestion for the reduction in running cost. So there was one suggestion to replace an MS office with freeware Kingsoft Office so MS office renewal cost can be saved.
MS office and Kingsoft office offers more or less same features but I am going to explain few features which MS office doesn't have and makes Kingsoft office a good product.It comes with Writer (MS Word), Spreadsheet (MS Excel), Presentation (MS PowerPoint) etc. Let's have a look at what Kingsoft office offers.
Backup of data at regular interval -
When we work on MS Word, MS Excel or Powerpoint, we need to save the write up at regular interval to avoid loss of unsaved data.In Kingsoft office also you can save at regular interval but Kingsoft offers the good feature of Backup at regular interval. The interval can be a user defined or system defined. At this regular interval, Kingsoft will take backup and will save at location defined in Options.
Multiple Tabs in Single window -
Assume you are working on multiple Word documents which may be more confusing and difficult from control point of view so chances of the mistake are high. But Kingsoft office has a feature where you can open multiple tabs in a single window. This is more comfortable and easy.
Quick formula selection in the spreadsheet -
We all use formulas in the spreadsheet (Excel) for calculation purpose.There are a lot of formulas but Kingsoft office makes it easy by categorizing the formulas. You can select the required category from the dropdown which reduces your search time and helps to locate the required formula quickly. There is also a category of recently used formulas, which will help you to find recently used formulas quickly.
Can be saved in MS office Format-
You might be thinking that what will happen if I send Kingsoft office file to other people who uses the MS Office and Vice Versa.It is very much possible to save the Kingsoft office files into MS office format. So there is no issue of Compatibility
