Pros
"It's a stable product.""This solution has become an enhanced product over the years. It is more stable and they keep adding features.""For me, the most important feature is the option to save the documents and then access it from anywhere from a mobile or a desktop, or any other device.""It allows multiple users to work simultaneously on a document.""Accessing their services is simple, user-friendly, and does not require a lot of technology.""I'm satisfied with the basic function. it's convenient to share documents or download shared documents you need.""The solution is absolutely stable.""Provides a secure backup to my data."

"The solution is very easy to use. It's completely transparent and extremely easy to navigate.""Microsoft Teams is most valuable. It is a great product, and it has really been very valuable for us during the pandemic. It enabled good collaboration. Even after the pandemic, we will continue to use Microsoft Team in our organization. They are continuously improving the product, which is a very positive thing.""The initial setup is pretty simple.""Cost-saving, easy and intuitive""The solution is easy to expand to accomodate multiple users.""It's easy to use.""I consider the installation to have been very easy.""Microsoft 365 Business is user-friendly, easy to use, compatible with different devices, such as laptops and phones, and helps me get my job done."

Cons
"The solution could improve User Access Management by showing more detailed information of which users have access to folders or files. For example, you can see which users have access one by one, but there is not a dashboard that can show what user has access to a library document.""Google meets use of whiteboard is primitive making it difficult to demonstrate while talking.""It's become difficult to fit everything in one window.""The product lacks customization.""The price could be better. Google should rethink and realign its pricing strategy along with the storage prices because storage prices are going down for on-premise solutions. If they can reduce the cost or increase the storage capacity for that same tier, that would be a great advantage.""The desktop app could be improved, especially how it functions in the Windows environment.""I'd like some UI enhancements for an even better user experience.""If you have different accounts, you have to log out and log in to access the accounts. This could be improved by removing this requirement. The storage limit could also be increased."

"Occasionally, it does go down, however, for the most part, it's fine.""It could be more user-friendly.""There is an error in the languages which creates a very big problem.""Excel hangs many times, especially when we have equations. Excel is very heavy on the hardware, and it needs powerful hardware. I hope they can enhance the performance of Excel. Other products are working well, except for Excel.""The product lacks certain drawing tool capabilities.""We are in a medical device space and most of the time we use Microsoft Excel for tracking a lot of information. In certain specific industries, such as aerospace and medical, from the FDA or other regulatory points of view, the solution has to be validated. It would be great if that validation document is provided by Microsoft 365 Business.""It should support the local language. It should also be cheaper.""The stability could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "There is a monthly fee that we pay for the use of this solution and the price is fair."
  • "It has a yearly license."
  • "I have evaluated Amazon AWS and IBM solutions. Amazon AWS has competitive prices for cloud storage and backups."
  • "The costs could be lower, but they are reasonable for the value they provide."
  • "Google is much cheaper than Microsoft."
  • "The price could be better."
  • "Google Drive's price is lower than competitors. I have two accounts, including one with Apple that I use to manage some pictures and contact. I use Apple Cloud for only this purpose. I use Google Drive for everything else. Compared to Google, the price of Dropbox is high and the solution isn't good."
  • "Google Drive is free."

  • "We do monthly billing, however, I'm not sure what the exact costs are. We may pay around $1,000/month. We started using the Microsoft Teams and we've started doing the conference call feature, so that's another $4 an account and we have a few accounts using that right now."
  • "USD $1,250 annually for the standard package."
  • "Pricing can vary a lot due to fluctuations in exchange rates and that is not favorable for planning."
  • "Now you can select different licenses, for example, if somebody doesn't need all of the features, it would cost $8 USD per month and if they didn't need the email application then it would cost $6 USD per month."
  • "It works out to be $12.50 per user per month."
  • "Microsoft 365 Business will be good to have if you have a large organization where you have more than 3000 employees. Other cheaper solutions, like Gmail, are easily available in the market."
  • "They are always a bit pricey. They should reduce their prices or make it free because we already have other solutions, like Google Suite, which are cheaper or free."
  • "It is expensive, and its price can be better."
