Power Mac Center and Microsoft Philippines Launch Office 2016 for OS and iOS devices

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Power Mac Center (PMC) has done it again with another first as they partner with Microsoft Philippines in launching Office 365 for Apple products. The launch of Office 365 was held at the Power Mac Center Rockwell Power Plant Mall branch on November 27, 2015. 

I'm sort of busy this weekend because of a two-day drive-tour caravan to be held on November 28 and 29 in Cavite where we will be touring the different popular tourist spots in that area. Thus, for the meantime, I'm just posting the official press release below as provided by the organizers. 

As per interview with the people doing the demo of the product installed on the different Apple devices, I've learned that eventhough the Apple OS have their own office productivity software named iWorks, Microsoft Office remains to be the most popular and in-demand office productivity tools used even on Apple products. Previous Office release was 2011 so the Office 365 which is 2016 if they will base it on the year it was release must surely have many new and advance features and tools for better office productivity requirements.

I may tell you more stories about the launch, post more pictures, and share my thoughts about the new productivity software from Microsoft soon. after I used the actual product since they gave each one of the attendees a personal Office 365 subscription.

Hosting the launch was Power Mac Center brand ambassador Alex Diaz, while the beautiful female brand ambassadors Sofia Andres and Chieena Filomeno were there to add some spice to the otherwise too techie ambiance of Power Mac Center which was filled with amazing gadgets, peripherals and accessories for every connected lifestyle. I first Met Alex during an event at Camarines Sur where he performed and we also got a chance to interview him. Sofia is the newest brand ambassador of Power Mac Center who joined PMC only two months ago. Chieena has always been very active in attending PMC events as I often see her gorgeous presence  every time I attend a PMC-organized launch.

Also at the event were Jerry Bongco, Director for Consumer Business Division at Microsoft Philippines; Lawrence Sison, CEO of Power Mac Center; Karrie Ilagan, Country General Manager at Microsoft Philippines; and Richard Javier, Retail Sales and Marketing Channels Lead at Microsoft Philippines
