Techopedia Explains Office Suite

An office suite is a collection of software created by the same vendor and designed to be used for routine tasks within an organization. Typically an office suite includes applications such as word processing, spreadsheets, presentation, email, note taking, database, collaboration and other related types of software. In most cases, each application in the office suite can be installed separately and all applications within the suite support interoperability between each other. Microsoft Office Suite, Lotus Live Notes and LibreOffice are all commonly used office suites.
