Microsoft doesn't have a unit price, it's based on the quantity, and they offer great discounts.

Its price is very affordable, and basically, it is the standard of the industry. We have the Exchange 365 subscription, which includes the usage of Exchange Online. I don't know the specific cost, but it is the retail price of Microsoft 365 E3 licenses. Microsoft's licensing is not very easy to understand. Microsoft changes rules every other day, which makes it difficult for us to understand the licensing not only for Exchange but also for other products. It can sometimes be really complex to understand what you need to have in order to comply with Microsoft licensing.

It's a little bit expensive. Microsoft is now introducing a new pricing model which is subscription-based. Previously, it was a one-time purchase and you could use it until the product came to the end of life. Now it's subscription-based and you can use the subscription yearly. Customers can benefit from this new pricing model because it's expensive, and now with the subscription, they can budget for this.

With respect to pricing, this product is somewhere in the middle. Everything is included in the standard licensing fees.

It's working very well. There is no problem, but the price is not the best.

I have no idea what the licensing costs are on the solution.

They are flexible when it comes to pricing, unlike most of the other vendors I have dealt with.
