QNAP Systems, Inc. (“QNAP”), a leading computing, networking and storage solution innovator, has collaborated with Microsoft to integrate Office for the web into QTS, the QNAP NAS operating system. With this new feature, QTS users can right-click on Office documents and select “Edit with Office Online” to facilitate direct editing of Microsoft Office documents in the web browser, eliminating the complex and time-consuming conventional workflow of download, edit, and re-upload.
Office for the web is Microsoft’s free online service that enables viewing and editing of Microsoft Office documents, including Word documents, Excel worksheets, and PowerPoint presentations, in a web interface. QNAP NAS users with proper document access permissions can quickly and easily launch Office for the web in the same browser window, boosting productivity and streamlining workflow.
“The integration of Microsoft Office for the web into QTS allows quick viewing and intuitive editing of Office documents in web browsers for higher work efficiency and providing more conveniences to users,” said Josh Chen, product manager of QNAP.
QNAP NAS users can enjoy this add-on feature at no additional cost starting from QTS 4.4.1. An Internet connection is required to launch Office for the web in QTS. For details, please see the QTS in-app help section.
