Microsoft 365 Business Review

Stable and reliable with the potential to scale

What is our primary use case?

The solution is primarily used for a variety of tasks, from meetings and documents to file sharing. 

What is most valuable?

The solution is very scalable.

The stability and reliability are great.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes, the solution can be more scalable. Sometimes the app crashes in between calls and sometimes it hangs.

There are other kinds of problems with incompatibility issues with other types of software. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used the solution for five years. It's been a while. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable and reliable. There are no bugs or glitches. However, we have had issues with it crashing and hanging in some cases, however, that might have to do with its general scalability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is typically very scalable. It's a cloud-based solution. Therefore, it can be scaled to any number of employees. However, we have had issues with it hanging or crashing, and we're not sure if this is based on the scaling or not. 

We have hundreds of thousands of people in our organization. Pretty much everyone uses it. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never asked for any tech support, as we have our internal support team for Office 365, then most of the time, they are able to resolve anything. If they are not able to resolve it, we are not aware of that.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have used some Google applications and other conferencing platforms, such as Skype.

How was the initial setup?

I'm not really aware of the installation process, as we are at the end-user side, however, the services of the cloud are separate in the way that it is installed. We get our client software installed in our office machine, and therefore, we are not aware of the installation part as well. It's just on the machines and ready to go for us. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The company purchases bulk licenses. However, I'm not sure how much they are. I don't deal with buying or negotiating the pricing. 

What other advice do I have?

I'm a customer and I use it for business purposes. 

We are always on the latest version of the solution, as we are on the cloud, which is continuously and automatically updated. 

I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten.

I'd recommend the solution to other companies, and most organizations are already using it. However, it depends upon the company, and how the security policy is, and whether they want to use a public cloud-based solution or not.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud
