Essential tools to manage and run your small business more effectively.

Product Information

[This Microsoft Office 2000 Small Business suite is intended as an upgrade.  See Upgrade Information below for eligibility.]

Microsoft Office 2000 Small Business combines the four productivity applications that businesses like yours rely on every day.  It includes word processing, desktop publishing, spreadsheet capabilities, and an e-mail and desktop information management tool.  For managing customer relationships, accessing and analyzing information, Office Small Business helps you do it more easily than ever and in less time.  Four feature-rich applications and a complete set of business tools that work together brilliantly to give you real-world efficiency and a real advantage.

Product Highlights

Build your customer relationships, manage your business.

  • Create a range of marketing materials.  Design sets in Microsoft Publisher help you maintain a consistent image, online and in print.
  • Build a presence on the Web.  Make it easy for customers to find out more about your company.  Wizards in Publisher walk you through the steps to create a professional-looking website.
  • Communicate through e-mail.  Outlook provides the tools to easily send, receive, manage, and organize e-mail, as well as schedule meetings, manage contacts, and access the Internet.

Make better business decisions.
  • Gather information from multiple sources and hold it in the Microsoft Office Clipboard for later use with the Collect and Paste capability.
  • Organize, calculate, and analyze your data.  Microsoft Excel helps you make sense of the numbers - such as inventory, assets, and orders - and keeps them all at your fingertips.
  • Easily develop business and marketing plans with Business Planner.  Wizards guide you through the process of developing your business and marketing plans.

Streamline day-to-day tasks.
  • Make learning easier.  Office Assistant guides you through common tasks, and lets you ask questions in your own words.
  • Save time, reduce costs.  Smart programs let you put everyday processes onto computer to reduce paperwork and automate repetitive tasks.
  • Create it once, use it everywhere.  Complete integration within Microsoft Office makes it easy to share information across applications.
  • Use what you know.  If you already use Word of Excel, you'll recognize the familiar Office menus and toolbars.
  • Reduce downtime, improve reliability.  Self-repairing applications search for missing or corrupted files and repair them automatically.
  • Wizards and templates in Publisher make it simple to produce your own brochures, newsletters, Web pages, flyers, business cards, and more.
  • Rely on AutoCorrect, Spell It, and Grammar Check to fix common typing, spelling, and grammar mistakes as they occur.

Tools Designed for Small Business
  • Business Planner gives you assistance creating business and marketing plans, providing access to information such as industry, tax, and legal resources, business planning data, and expert advice - then guides you through forming workable plans.
  • Small Business Customer Manager helps you manage and develop customer relationships.  Import data from popular accounting programs to track customer profiles and maximize revenues.
  • Small Business Financial Manager lets you analyze business data and create easy-to-read financial reports.  It works with Excel and enables you to perform a "what if" analysis of your accounting data.  Compare profits with the competition, project future results, and more.
  • Direct Mail Manager allows you to use the Internet to acquire U.S.-based prospect lists, verify and correct U.S.-based addresses, and send documents and target lists to a mailing service for quick production.

New and Improved
  • Increased productivity is achieved by using Office features that take over routine tasks, leaving you free to concentrate on creative activity.  For example, Office programs self-diagnose and repair key files that are missing or damaged.  Personalized menus and toolbars move items that you use more frequently to a prominent position.
  • Collaboration on the Web happens throughout Office 2000.  Not only can you use e-mail to send documents, but you can also share comments about documents that you publish to the Web by using Web Discussions.  Or you can hold online meetings.
  • Language specific support provides many editing and formatting features that allow you to work in the language of your choice.
  • Programming is easy with Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications development system, which is available for most products.  You can record a series of actions and play them back.  Web scripting is also made easier with the Microsoft Script Editor.
  • Reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of Office 2000 is accomplished by improvements in setup, maintenance and performance that the program provides your business.  TCO is a method of totaling the costs of acquiring, using, and maintaining and product like Office 2000, and then deducting theses costs from the total monetary benefits.
  • Supporting HTML Document Format makes it easy to read and write programs to HTML.  Use of HTML also means that any Office document that is sent in that format can be read by anyone with a Web browser.

Product Features

Microsoft Office E-mail
Office 2000 integrates e-mail with all applications for easier sharing of information. A new button on the standard toolbar in each application inserts a mail header at the top of the file so users can easily send it as an e-mail message.

Self-repairing Applications
Office 2000 automatically detects and fixes errors without users even knowing there was a problem. If necessary, Office 2000 automatically verifies and reinstalls the files and Registry entries needed to run successfully.

Install on Demand
Programs and components are installed as needed, saving space on the hard disk until users need the functionality. Shortcuts, icons, and commands for some not-yet-installed Office 2000 programs or components are displayed, indicating their availability.

HTML as Companion File Format
All Office applications can save to and read from HTML files with high fidelity. HTML is elevated to the same ease-of-use level as the proprietary file formats (*.doc, *.xls, *.ppt, and *.mdb).

Save to the Web
This allows users to publish a copy of the current document in HTML format directly to a Web server.

Collect and Paste
This new “multiple clipboard” functionality makes gathering information from multiple sources easier.

Web Subscriptions and Web Notifications
Users can subscribe to a document or HTML page and indicate when they would like to be notified of changes to that document. This automates the process of being alerted to updates or changes to pages or documents that users are interested in.

Office Themes and Design Templates
Themes have been created and coordinated between some Office applications, FrontPage, and Publisher to make it easy to create consistent-looking Web pages and printed materials.

Small Business Customer Manager
Helps small businesses achieve more effective customer tracking, analysis, and communication by making use of data they already have. Includes database wizard, filters, enhanced data fields, personalized settings, activity tracker, and more.

Business Planner
A set of tools, information, and templates to help grow and run a business. Combines content from the latest editions of 5 leading business reference books with over 100 productivity templates/worksheets, almost 700 Web links, and directory information.
