Microsoft Exchange Online Valuable Features

FP
COO at a comms service provider with 1-10 employees

I was talking to my dentist this morning, and I was manually entering the appointment into my calendar, and I was impressed that Exchange would actually give me the address. 

It wasn't always this way, but now it's all connected in some way. I just entered the name without checking to make sure I didn't have a typo, and my calendar was able to give me the address, it just popped up. 

When you used to write to someone, you would often begin typing their name and their email address would appear; you would simply click and you would have the correct email address. That has been working for a while, but having the location address appear was a pleasant surprise. It was amazing.

The experience has been rather good. We've had nothing major happen to us. We've had no major downtimes. We haven't lost mail so far, which is good.

I enjoy not having to maintain the local infrastructure, local servers, local whatever. You use the software and don't have to worry about the details. You're not concerned with administration tasks other than managing users, which, of course, our team does on a daily basis, basically.

The pricing is okay.

The solution is stable.

The product scales well.

The user interface isn't too bad.

What I like about Microsoft Exchange Online is that it's a very convenient solution because it's part of the Microsoft business suite. This is the first email service I've used that lasted for many years, and I'm still using it because it's very convenient and it's suitable for my needs.

Microsoft Exchange Online is the best product in the world for me because I don't remember any other service that's so well-accepted.

We use SharePoint Online for the collaboration of our team and for other desktop applications we are using in-house.

We also create technical presentations, so most of the time we are dealing with MS Word and Excel. Sometimes, we also use Visio for diagramming. Our overall experience is good.

It's easy to use and there is more integration. We have Dynamics and 365 as a hybrid solution. Integration with the Microsoft applications is the key for us. It has better integration with other solutions.

From a user's perspective, this solution enables them to access to their mailbox from anywhere and their mailbox size is as big as 100 gigabytes so they never run out of space. 

This solution makes it very easy to receive and detect problems about the mail flow and offers very good reporting. In general, it's very easy to manage the organization's mailboxes.

Having the solution on the cloud has alleviated the need to have hardware on-premises. I no longer have to deal with the expense of power usage and the hardware taking up space. It is much better for us, we can now focus more on the business instead of our assets.

I have found the interface to be user-friendly and the overall simplicity valuable features.

I like that Exchange Online is easy to use and that I do not need to maintain the previous Exchange Server. I also do not need to worry about the security of the Exchange Server. If there are any issues, then it will be the service provider's problem and not mine.
