Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "We pay regular licensing fees to continue using Microsoft 365 Business."
  • "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."
  • "This is an expensive product because it is subscription-based, which is always more expensive than a perpetual license."
  • "It's an expensive solution."
  • "There is a licensing fee that is quite expensive. However, the solution is useful and the price is equal to the value."
  • "We pay for a corporation license."
