Researched Office 365 but chose Microsoft Teams: Good document management, easily scalable and very stable
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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 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.
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.
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.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
The pricing is not really high, but one can get the software with the license key for free.
The pricing is good for all the features that we receive, e.g., Skype for Business.
The pricing/licensing is easy to manage.
