The most valuable feature is the integration with OneDrive, which has allowed us, a small business, easy access to a cloud environment, with no need to back up the data from five different computers.Many of the features in Office 365 are good, but I think Excel is a very good tool.It's very stable.The functionality that is most valuable is the solution's ability to detect patient data in email attachments. Whenever a user sends out an email with patient data embedded in an attachment, it triggers an alert. The tool can detect a social security number and various other forms of patient identity. Emails are then automatically generated and sent.Most of the work that seems not to work offline works perfectly with Microsoft Office 2013, like converting a Word document to a PDF file.The cloud service and Skype are the most valuable features.It is very easy to deploy.Cloud-based management is valuable and software deployment is positive.
