Office 365 for home allows the family to use genuine licenses that are secure and are accessible on 5 pcs, 5 tablets and 5 phones and only costs less than Rs. 1,500 per month. As we venture into new markets and influence more businesses, the best practice starts at home and we encourage everyone to invest in Office 365 to increase productivity,” said Microsoft South East Asia New Markets Chief Marketing and Operations Officer Rena Chai.

The Office 365 campaign will be shown on social media channels, movie theatres, and retail stores such as Singer, Softlogic and Microsoft stores.
