Connect Computing is pleased to announce the "Open Office for Business" CD-ROM and manual. This is the second in a series of products being developed to help raise awareness of Open and Free Software available to small businesses.
"With our small business / Open Source CD-ROM packages, we hope people find it easier trying Open Source alternatives to proprietary software.", stated Roy Hoobler, president of Connect Computing.
Open Office is a powerful set of applications that include a word processor, drawing program, presentation program, and spreadsheet application. Mr. Hoobler went on to say, "In many businesses it is hard to keep people on the same version of any application because of licensing cost. Open Office can keep everyone working in a consistent environment using the same version of the office suite. This alone is worth considering Open Office".
The first part of "Open Office for Business" manual covers basic installation and an overview of each of the Open Office applications, including how to create professional presentations, templates, as well as an overview of using formulas in spreadsheets. The second part of the manual covers integrating Open Office to other databases (the examples cover MySQL) to get data into spreadsheets, create form letters, and labels for envelopes.
