Coding and testing for the latest version of Microsoft Office is officially complete and will be available for enterprise customers next month. A month before publicly anticipated, the engineering team signed the “release to manufacturing” order.

The team said in a blog post that this is the most ambitious release of Office it has ever done. It offers the full suite of Office applications, like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, as well as tools for note-taking, meetings, communications, and collaboration.

The company hasn’t issued a date for the consumer launch, but predictions put it in February. Rumors also say that native Office 2013 iOS and Android apps will arrive in March.
