It may not always be sufficient to just compare Polaris Office 2017 and Microsoft Word against one another. Although specific features, pricing and customer reviews are all important and should be taken into account when making a final decision, you should also take a look at the recognition and awards won by each software. Frequently a less known product may turn out to be a great choice that was a winner of many SaaS awards such as our Great User Experience Award which shows that despite smaller market presence it’s a worthy contender to the solutions that rule the market.
