455,301 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It allows us to arrange and develop new ideas, then incorporate them into the portal. We can create a one stop information center, so people can access the information from one window."
"I think that it could be interesting to expand the eCommerce capabilities to the B2C sector."
"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."
"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 solution is easy to install."
"The look and feel and the user interface are great."
"The cloud service and Skype are the most valuable features."
"It is very easy to deploy."
"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 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."
"It's very stable."
"Many of the features in Office 365 are good, but I think Excel is a very good tool."
"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."
"The integration with other applications is pretty good."
"It could be improved in terms of adding filters to some of the rules. Therefore, you can retain how long a document would need to stay in an archive."
"Social area and capabilities need improvement."
"It could have better built-in integration with a wider variety of extensions out-of-the-box."
"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."
"The plugins should be more affordable."
"Using Office 365 is not that flexible on some mobile devices, like Android."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"If two people update the same file, it causes issues."
"I'm not sure if there are areas of improvement. For us, it's working quite well."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is a bit expensive."
"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."
"The pricing is good for all the features that we receive, e.g., Skype for Business."
"The pricing is not really high, but one can get the software with the license key for free."
"The pricing is high and has actually caused us to limit the number of licenses we purchase due to budgeting."
"I think that we pay $9.99 USD per user, monthly."
