Updated: 05/13/2019 by Computer Hope

Packaged software is a collection of programs that perform similar functions or have similar features. For example, Microsoft Office includes multiple applications such as Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. Video and audio editing software may also be available as packaged software, used for editing music and video files used in a movie.

Some programs included in packaged software may be available for purchase individually. However, purchasing packaged software is often cheaper than purchasing each software program separately.
