Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

"The best feature is to be able to share the screen or just some application we want, even a video or audio, then request the remote control of the device with which they have connected.""The most valuable option is screen sharing.""They have a feature called Call Me in which I need to type in my phone number and I can get a conference room to call my number rather than needing to dial in every time. I think that's a quite good feature.""We can easily connect the device and create a room and then we can call many devices.""The most valuable aspect of this solution is that it is the easiest for participants to get connected to.""What we like about Webex is that it is a hosted solution, so there is no demand for us to invest in hardware, skill, or manpower to maintain our cloud meeting capability.""The ability to join by phone is the most valuable feature. I also think that it's much simpler to use and it's a Cisco product so I think it's the industry standard.""The most valuable feature is the ease of use."

Cons
"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."

"The modification of the email template is not very intuitive.""I would like to see the addition of new features that will add value to the product.""My company does a lot of international calls. For some countries they do not have their local number to call in, all they have is a 1-800 number which is quite hard to find. If they want to improve they should set up the local number to call in. What would be beneficial.""The UX should be more user-friendly. I know others don't like the UX because it's a little complicated to use.""I would like for them to include a collaboration tool so that you can directly do a video call or audio call to your colleagues or anyone in the office.""Better integration with other solutions would benefit Webex.""The connectivity can be improved because sometimes when we talk to clients that are overseas the connection is kind of poor. The video will be pixelated and we will need to turn off the video because the voice gets delayed.""We have had issues where some of the invited participants are not able to join the meeting."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Office 365 Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price of the license depends a lot on the type of service required and whether it is for the entire company or only for a few users.""Licensing is subscription-based and the cost varies depending on how many minutes are included in the plan.""The pricing of this solution is fine and I am satisfied with it."
