Is QuickBooks Pro (desktop) 2017 compatible with office 2016?

We had problems with QB version 2016 not working very well with Office 2016 and had to downgrade office to 2013. I am hoping QB 2017 has resolved the problem – biggest problem was emailing from Outlook 365 on version 2016. I am about to install QB 2017 but am also replacing a workstation so need to know if I can now go ahead and load Office 2016 on it, then install QB 2017.
