We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable feature is the mail server.

Read more »

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.

Cons
Security is very important to us, so improvements to this functionality are welcome.

Integration between Outlook calendar and Google Calendar would be a good improvement since many of our team use Android phones and personal Gmail accounts as their main calendar application.Using Visual Basic, I have had a lot of trouble with relative paths when programming for Excel, and sometimes it is very difficult to debug programs.There are several additional features we would like to see, such as advanced features of SAN protection in Office 365. The main thing is the SAN protection; we would like to see a lot of advanced features added because we had a lot of spam attacks.Improvements can be made to the products generic offering. It's not customized for health care. It doesn't understand the meaning of health care related concepts. Providing a greater degree of industry specificity would make the tool much more unique and valuable.The feature to convert PDF file to a Word document needs improvement as well as the feature to save the file automatically when typing, without using the save command.Using Office 365 is not that flexible on some mobile devices, like Android.Their support is so terrible and unusable except during dire emergencies.There are some complexities to the initial setup if you use some of the more advanced features.
