"The integration with other applications is pretty good.""There are all sorts of really good tools for use on the information security side that allow us to make sure that our people are doing business and doing business right.""My primary use case is for preparing presentations to teach, often on PowerPoint.""I like that it is cloud-based, wherefrom any computer I can access my documents and continue working.""It's nice that it's an all-in-one solution and everything is all in one place.""The products are quite simple for the end-users to use, the up-time is very good, the product is practically maintenance-free, and the multi-layer security is excellent from the security standpoint.""I love all of the applications being interlinked. I do not have to separately work on an independent system when it comes to file storage, email, and other tools.""If you have a global solution, you can go from one product to the other very easily. And then you can share data between all the different tools of Office which is good because participation and sharing is very good. That's the most important aspect of Office 365."

Cons
"I had a very bitter experience with their mobile app."

More Amazon WorkDocs Cons →

"The security should be improved.""Data protection and email security are almost the same for all the organizations, irrespective of their segment (SMB or enterprises), with standard subscription at least basic Data loss prevention and Advance threat protection can be enabled for SMB segments, it is available in enterprise version / Premium versions.""The online applications have limited functionality compared to the local applications.""A need that a company like ours has is that we want to be able to have data flow into one tool, for example, for all the management of tasks through the company and workflow of who is doing what and so on. There are no real solutions for this at the moment in Office 365. It would be nice if they could implement this in the next release, so we can have one solution from one company giving us the whole data and flow of data into the company.""I would like to see the macro functionality in Excel made simpler.""I'm not sure if there are areas of improvement. For us, it's working quite well.""It seems like every other week when we log into the administrative portals, it doesn't matter which one, it could be the active directory portal, it could be the exchange admin center or SharePoint admin center, it seems like Microsoft is consistently updating with new versions of the admin centers, which can be frustrating.""I started working a lot on Microsoft Teams and I find it a bit vast. It should be divided out a bit so that someone can use it for basic functionality, like audio, video, and calls. Then, if someone wants more advanced functionality for file sharing and team creation, and so on, they could use a separate app."
