Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"This solution is great for inviting and sharing documents with other users."
"What I like is that Office 365 is nicely integrated with our email application Outlook. We also don't have to worry about updates. They are free, and they just happen automatically."
"The solution's most valuable features are Office products like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Teams."
"I like everything. For me, this is a perfect product. It is rich in terms of features, and new functionalities are available very often. It is super straightforward to install, and their technical support is the best that I've ever seen."
"The most valuable feature of this solution, in my opinion, is its simplicity."
"I like the flexibility of Microsoft 365 Business."
"The initial setup is very straightforward."
"Feature-wise, everything is okay. We are getting the latest version of the application. You also don't need to manage anything. Everything is running at the backend. The best part is that even if there is a failure in the on-prem active directory, users can still access mails. You can configure MFA easily and protect the mailboxes. Integrity and confidentiality are there. In this aspect, I am very happy with Microsoft."
"The features such as meetings connected with Microsoft Teams and the integration is fabulous."
 

Cons

"I had a very bitter experience with their mobile app."
"I am responsible for handling the licenses and was not happy with the amount of time spent during the auditing process."
"Microsoft Teams for Mac isn't quite good enough yet."
"The diagnostics is an issue that needs to be addressed, as it cannot be seen when needed."
"The price could be better."
"Data protection needs to be improved."
"It should be more secure."
"Some of the functionalities available in the desktop version are not available on the cloud."
"The stability needs to be improved."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"It's cheaper compared to similar products available"
"The licenses are available for a fair price."
"The licensing cost is reasonable."
"As a customer, I would like the licensing fees should be cheaper."
"The organization is responsible for the license."
"It is slightly expensive, but it doesn't have any hidden costs. You know what you're going to spend, and you get a decent ROI on it. It has subscription-based licensing. It helps you to figure out the amount of money that you would spend based on how many mailboxes you would require in a year, which makes it better as compared to a mail server for which you need to consider the licensing cost and the maintenance cost."
"Pricing can vary a lot due to fluctuations in exchange rates and that is not favorable for planning."
"The solution requires a license which is expensive."
"Our fees are paid monthly."
