How easy/reliable is it to update Office 2000 Standard to Office 2013 standard via GP or other batch method?
Posted on 2014-12-04
I have a client who still has Office 2000 Standard and we need to upgrade him to Office 2013 Standard. The back end is actually Gmail hosted email (with the client's own domain name). They have around 25 machines to upgrade, but have a limited budget for this project. I want to see how quickly we can get this done for them using some automated method to do the bulk of the task so our total labor charges are reduced. I don't know if the change from Office 2000 to 2013 presents a unique challenge, or the fact that it is not Exchange but Gmail on the back end.
GP might be one option, but there may be other good ones. I want to avoid paying for a product to do this is there is a good free or included with AD one.
