The full Ability suite is priced at £49.99, significantly undercutting Microsoft Office, and individual applications will start at just under £20.
Other applications in the Tesco range will include security and antivirus products taking on the likes of Symantec and McAfee, a personal finance package, a photo-editing package and CD and DVD burners.
The new product line will be available later this month through Tesco's UK outlets and a forthcoming TescoSoftware website which will also offer support packages.
Many office applications and antivirus products are available free on the internet. The Free Software Foundation keeps a directory of such applications.
