Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The solution is easy to install.""We chose Liferay because it is open-source and that we can make any number of users apply, register into the system and use the system, as opposed to other solutions where the cost is based on user licenses. This is one of the most attractive features.""The look and feel and the user interface are great.""Manageability is very good and probably the most valuable part of a tool of this type. There is a little more of a learning curve than you have with a simple tool, but a business user can learn to manage the system as an administrator very easily."

"The support is good.""With Power BI and Power Applications you can do a lot of our automation within IT. It makes everything much quicker.""The solution has been very stable.""The most important feature of Microsoft 360 Business is Teams. We use it for our conference calls and messaging. Microsoft Teams reduces the number of emails that I have to send or receive. Microsoft 365 Business has been incredibly useful during this period because of the integration of Teams with Outlook and the ability to store and handle files of large dimensions.""It is easy to use.""Overall, I have found it to be a good, reliable product.""The current product they provide has been very satisfying. The email service has been operating perfectly. Dynamics CRM is the best and competes well with the non-CRM products in the market, such as Salesforce.""Teams is a valuable feature in addition to the other features 365 provides."

Cons
"The integration and configuration need to be simplified.""The documentation provided needs to be more detailed. It's sometimes hard to develop things because the documentation is so sparse.""It could have better built-in integration with a wider variety of extensions out-of-the-box.""The plugins should be more affordable."

More Liferay Digital Experience Platform Cons »

"They should offer better support for iOS devices and more regular updates for iOS, as it's working pretty well for Microsoft solutions and for Windows systems, yet it does not work quite as well for iOS.""The solution could improve by being more secure.""We have OneNote, where you type something, and it's saved automatically, so if Microsoft could add that option in 365, it would help us avoid potential data loss.""The integration with other platforms could be improved.""In a future release, I would like to see what more Microsoft can do in terms of integration with other solutions.""Attaching documents to email is a process that needs to be simplified.""The Microsoft 365 Business suite could improve by adding additional template-type tools. For example, if you specifically are creating a fillable form, there are times where I did not find the right type of template that I was looking for.""Security could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's an open-source structure. Other costs are for professional services to integrate Liferay to other existing systems.""Licensing costs can be very expensive."

More Liferay Digital Experience Platform Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of users at home the license should be cheaper. We are on an annual subscription.""It's pretty difficult to make a cost estimation, in cases where we need additional features.""There is a licensing fee that is quite expensive. However, the solution is useful and the price is equal to the value.""I think that the price is fair.""The licensing costs are not expensive.""It is slightly expensive, but it doesn't have any hidden costs. You know what you're going to spend, and you get a decent ROI on it. It has subscription-based licensing. It helps you to figure out the amount of money that you would spend based on how many mailboxes you would require in a year, which makes it better as compared to a mail server for which you need to consider the licensing cost and the maintenance cost.""Microsoft 365 Business could be cheaper.""Its cost is fine because I have a lot of devices in my account."

Top Answer: Great accessibility and file storage.
Top Answer: We have OneNote, where you type something, and it's saved automatically, so if Microsoft could add that option in 365, it would help us avoid potential data loss.
