Researched Microsoft 365 Business but chose Microsoft Teams: Good document management, easily scalable and very stable
Find out what your peers are saying about Microsoft 365 Business vs. Microsoft Teams and other solutions. Updated: March 2020.
406,607 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:
You can have conference calls with different parties using video and voice.
It has file storage, file sharing, a provisioning box, and a SharePoint profile for each user.
The most valuable feature for us is Microsoft Teams.
The flexibility of having a subscription for the Office software, rather than having any upfront costs is the best part of this solution.
The Power BI environment and the integration between Power BI and SQL are the solution's most valuable features. The integration between products is great.
The most valuable feature is Microsoft Teams.
What was most valuable for me was how simple this solution is to start using.
This is a unified business package that helps people be productive in working environments.
The conversation capabilities and document management are the solution's most valuable features.
The most valuable feature for us was instant messaging.
The initial setup was really straightforward and easy.
There is a new Skype feature in Teams that is excellent.
The group chat is very good.
You can add teams to a conversation. You can create reports, project plans, or many other things based on Microsoft solutions. It has improved communication between teams and within each team.
The chat functionality is the solution's most valuable feature.
The product is continually growing to add new features and functionality.
The security sites need to be simplified and the technical support needs improvement.
Updates to the SQL server with better features are needed to compete with Oracle Database.
The pricing for this solution could be improved.
There are various things that you need to use PowerShell to do. That would be good. You could do them through the management portal, rather than through PowerShell. That's the biggest improvement I would like to see.
The solution's licensing framework needs improvement.
There are loads of holes in security and I'd like to see better integration with security products.
The admin panels have too few samples.
Flow and Form components can be improved individually, but it would be nice to see the product take the next step and operate as a unit rather than separate modules.
The solution should offer a way for people to virtually raise their hands in a meeting so that everyone can speak. There's a user voice for this already, but it would help if there was some sort of visual cue as well.
I didn't know that Teams is part of Office 365, so I think that it should be better advertised with its features and capabilities.
I would like to see Outlook options added to this solution.
The mobile application needs improvement. There are a lot of features on the web and desktop versions that aren't implemented yet on mobile.
In the next release, I would like to have the interface modernized and brought more up to date.
I think they can improve the all those segments for channel bulking. Also, some functionalities which migrated from Skype for Business to Teams, is not supported by Teams. We had used them in Skype for Business.
We occasionally have issues with synchronization between different dates. This aspect of stability needs improvement.
The product is immature and lacks some of the features and functionality you would expect in a collaboration tool.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Now you can select different licenses, for example, if somebody doesn't need all of the features, it would cost $8 USD per month and if they didn't need the email application then it would cost $6 USD per month.
Compared to buying a license, it is much cheaper and a good buy.
Depending on which plan you purchase, there are a plethora of applications available to you.
We are satisfied with the price of this solution.
It is the standard license which is part of many Office packets.
Pricing is free to a threshold and then after that you have to license per user.
