productivity software

Any application people use to "produce" information. Virtually any program used to create or modify a document, image, audio or video clip is productivity software. However, business application suites such as Microsoft Office, which include word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs, are typically called productivity software. Contrast with "utility program," such as a file manager, which is used to organize files and folders on the computer. See application suite.
