Pros
"My primary use case is for preparing presentations to teach, often on PowerPoint.""Using Office 365 has allowed us to go digital and onboard people seamlessly for working at home during the COVID pandemic.""The most valuable feature is Microsoft Exchange.""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.""Reliable without any glitches.""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.""The integration with other applications is pretty good.""Quarantine email alerts to users to allow the email to their inbox (tricky but handy) - tricky if one doesn't have third-party email security, handy if one has got good third party email security)."

"The product is quite stable. The performance is good.""I have been satisfied with TeamViewer overall.""I don't know of any performance problems with TeamViewer - generally, it's a stable product.""It is fairly feature-rich and stable.""The pilot feature is what stands out the most. I love the ability to use the pilot feature for remote inspections. The augmented portion of the software comes in handy when I have to assist my inspectors. They use the app in the field, and they show me what they're seeing through their phones.""TeamViewer is fast and easy to manipulate.""The most important feature of TeamViewer is its ease of use.""TeamViewer is a step ahead of solutions like, for example, AnyDesk."

Cons
"I would like to see the macro functionality in Excel made simpler.""Integration with other platforms can be improved.""In terms of improvement, it should have tutorials when you first have the opportunity to use it, to be able to really learn it.""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.""The security should be improved.""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 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."

"TeamViewer is expensive, and you get a limited number of connections for your money.""I can use up to three computers, but sometimes I have four. So, it would be nice to have at least four computers.""The installation and the update agent could improve.""The solution could have better scalability.""They should release features such as Augmented Reality into both plain and standard versions of TeamViewer.""One thing I have noticed is that TeamViewer does not work so well when the machine you are trying to connect to remotely is not running the same version as your machine.""There is a paid version of this solution with more features available. However, they should provide more free features to the user, such as factor authentication.""TeamViewer could be more secure."
