The Polaris Office program is a software download for Windows that allows users with Office (MS) to easily edit and compile documents to store in the Polaris cloud for easier access.

Overview of Polaris Office

Microsoft Office is easily one of the most popular suite of tools for Windows users over the past twenty years, and its various add-on programs have remained popular all this time. The Polaris Office app is basically just an add-on tool suite for PC users that allows them to edit, save and construct Office materials with much more convenience than with the standalone program. Polaris gives users some cooler tools and gadgets that allow you to work and save in the cloud. This is ideal for saving space on your PC and for accessing your files more quickly.

Your average file saved in Office is very small, so you're not exactly dealing with over-crowding or the need to free up space here. This add-on software package for Office is much more about convenience and streamlining the process of editing and saving your documents, spreadsheets, and even helping you to create entire presentations more quickly.

How Polaris Office Works

Once downloaded, you will notice that the program opens much like an office page, only it gives you a new set of options that you can use. The pages that pop up when saving look sort of like Google Drive, and you will even get the option to share with other people or to store directly in the cloud so you can access them easier at a later date.

There main page of Polaris, with the slogan "Make Simple Work Better," provides you with key navigation. Not only can you see the files that were most recently worked on saved on the page, but you also get a search navigation bar for anything that has been saved in the cloud. This saves you a lot of time from scrolling and blindly searching like before.

Polaris Office Features

This is not a very feature rich program. It's pretty simplistic in its layout and in its features. The initial page that comes up when you launch looks more like a Word document than anything, and you can use this to access Excel and PowerPoint and other tools in your MS Office suite. From there, everything works exactly how it works on the original Office version. The only features that are different are with the cloud, and the fact that you can perform different types of edits.

Overall, this app is basically just designed to give you cloud storage for your Office documents and easier access to share and edit them.
