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 thing about Zoom is that it is very easy to use.""The most valuable feature of this solution is its ease of use.""One of the biggest features of Zoom is its stability.""The interface makes it simple to use.""Zoom is stable and easy to use.""It allows for both support and communication at the same time.""The most valuable feature is the remote desktop because sometimes we have to intervene and control the client's infrastructure.""It is very quick to get a meeting started."

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."

"It is important for us to have Zoom integration with our Active Directory environment.""It takes time to acclimate end users to the product.""In the future, I would like to see remote access control for other computers.""Having easier access to recorded meetings, being able to download them fast, and playing them back would be helpful.""When a lot of people join a meeting it is not possible to shrink the pictures and show them on a single screen.""When sharing a screen, it's only dedicated to one particular window, not multiple windows""I would like to be able to have multiple users open and collaborate on a document at the same time.""Technical support is in need of improvement."
