It's easy to set up and easy to use.""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.""There's a lot there in terms of apps and features.""We use it for documentation management, to collaborate with Microsoft Teams, web calls, web conference calls, chats, and as a documentation repository mainly.

"The plugins should be more affordable."

More Liferay Digital Experience Platform Cons →

"Performance-wise, Office 365 needs a lot of bandwidth. The problem is, the solution requires very high bandwidth and internet usage. Meaning, the desktop application consumes a lot of internet data. Sometimes, when the connection is slow, it won't work and it won't load. This is an area for improvement for Office 365.""Microsoft Defender for Office 365 could use some customization, but this area for improvement is trivial.""Office 365 could be easier to use at first. Tutorials are needed to know how to use the solution.""The integration with mobile services is not so good. It's coming, but they could improve a lot.""Normally, they have a way to work with specific developments, and I think they shouldn't allow the partners to make some changes they have made. When I have a client with a lot of changes, we have a problem with that because there aren't rules to develop inside the ERP, so you can do anything.""Sometimes the configurations of the error troubleshooting are pretty problematic and there are a lot of issues that happen even if you follow the step-by-step guides. They can work on fixing this issue. If there are a lot of issues in your Windows or your Office or anything, you restart your PC and it works. They need to get rid of this need.""It would be a fantastic opportunity if their solution could be used in combination with VoIP software, allowing you to combine VoIP software and Office 365 on a single platform.""It could be more user-friendly for inexperienced people."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Most of the time, we purchase Microsoft Exchange licenses, which are less expensive and provide only an email platform and 50 gigabytes of email storage for free."
  • "We have a license to use this solution. We have an E3 license which covers many different solutions."
  • "I would rate the solution 3 out of 5 for the price. I think Microsoft presents a good solution concerning the price."
  • "For the moment, we are paying on a monthly basis because we are still adapting the support and how we want to proceed. I think we will move to paying for the annual license."
  • "Licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis, or we prepay them."
  • "The price of Office 365 is very expensive."
