Good email service, however, no technical support and needs to be more automated

What is our primary use case?

I use it for various aspects of my business (scheduling/calendar, email, etc.).

Pros and Cons

  • "In terms of email, I could probably do the same things with other programs, however, I find 90% of my usage is Gmail."
  • "The solution is not user-friendly and it doesn't integrate that well with Microsoft Office, which is one of the bigger business apps on the market, compared to Google Sheets and applications of that sort."

What other advice do I have?

I'm just a customer. I'm not sure of the version I'm currently using. I just use the business G Suite. I believe it's always the latest version that's available. The only thing I use in G Suite is Gmail, Drive and the Calendar and that's about it. I'm not really using Google Ads. I do a little bit of YouTube stuff, but I'm fixing to convert that into putting the videos on my website. I just recently also used Google Voice. In terms of advice to other companies, I'd caution that it's very difficult to use effectively. Users need to really make sure they're going to have to be able to vertically…

Seamless outsourcing of email servers, very scalable, and overall quite reliable

What is our primary use case?

The main thing we use the solution for is being able to outsource everything in the cloud while having the Exchange hosted. Having the Exchange and not having to manage the server and being able to deploy it wherever we have to is useful. We did have a number of people that traveled frequently prior to COVID. We have a handful of people that work out of their homes in various parts of the country, so having solutions that were accessible via the cloud was sort of a direction we started to migrate to several years ago in the Office 365 environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "The two biggest value adds of the solution are having the ability to outsource the email and not having to manage the email server. It's just seamless. Having the most current versions all around and having things updating frequently by themselves ensures that everybody's got access to the same software."
  • "The ability to manage the updates a little better would be helpful. Sometimes end-users will get a prompt in the middle of the day that they have to update. When there's a new update, then their system automatically starts to reboot, which can be ill-timed. Having a little more control over that would probably be welcome. Notices in regards to updates and being able to manage the timing around them or to be able to do it at off-times would be helpful."

What other advice do I have?

We're Microsoft customers. We aren't resellers or consultants. We have a fairly robust version of the solution, although I don't recall the exact version number offhand. In terms of what I would advise other organizations, I would say it's worthwhile and I would do it as quickly as you can because for what you get, it's a really good bang for the buck while being pretty easy to use. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

Stable with great integrations and lots of collaboration potential

Pros and Cons

  • "With this solution, the sharing of documents if very easy to do. There's a lot of collaboration you can do with your colleagues."
  • "The online application is quite limited, for this and other Office offerings."

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer; we simply use the product. We don't have a business relationship with Microsoft. We're using multiple Microsoft apps, including Office 365, which comes with One Drive, SharePoint, Teams, and other apps. We're using the latest version of the solution. It's a good solution. Organizations new to the solution won't have to do much prep work before diving into it. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

Good document management, easily scalable and very stable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for projects in our company.

Pros and Cons

  • "The conversation capabilities and document management are the solution's most valuable features."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

The solution is only available as a cloud deployment model; there's no on-premises version. I use Teams every day for my daily workflow. My company is also rolling out some training on Teams. It's heavily used in our organization. I'd advise others considering implementation to contact experts. They'll be able to show what you can do with Teams and you'll be able to develop new workflows. It offers a great way to collaborate together. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
