They're right.  Why train them on something different when they already
know how to use Office?  It makes no economic sense.

It's not cost-effective to train them on anything different.  They
already know Office, so put Office in front of them.  It's cheaper to
buy them a copy of Office than it is to train them on something else,
even if the something-else is free.
