"Best tool for day to day work"

What do you like best?

Office 365 is an excellent tool for your day-to-day work. It has many ramifications, such as e-mail, spreadsheets, text editor, cloud storage ... The ability to edit and share your documents in the cloud also greatly expedites the exchange of information. Today we have this channel of communication with our remote teams, with suppliers and customers.

What do you dislike?

The value of acquiring the software could be more affordable for home users. I have nothing more to complain about than the price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The software is very complete, very useful in day to day with several possibilities. It is an investment that is quite valid taking into account all the agility in the daily processes that it offers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What business issues are you solving with Office 365? What benefits did you realize?

Before the access and edition of our documents was totally local, which generated problems when a computer or server in which the file was stored failed. With Office 365 we start storing our files in the cloud, and we share those files so that other branches can access and also edit the files when necessary.

We also generate reports and share with our customers through One Drive and also receive files from our suppliers with greater agility.

"Everyone is familiar with Office365, and it is working!"

What do you dislike?

Nothing great, but when sending and receiving emails, depending on the strength of your Wi-Fi, you can get an internal time-out, where your email fails and has to be resent, thus generating a small inconvenience and also loss of time

Recommendations to others considering the product

office 365 is the complete solution that any company needs, it has practically everything included, a package stuffed with necessary tools and that integrate with each other, at the beginning the price can be expensive, but believe it is worth very much and it will be much cheaper than buying each product individually

"Best Application, Easy To Use But Stuck Some Time.. But Overall A "Solid Choice"

Microsoft Office 365 also makes sharing of documents much easier, with its support for cloud-based sharing of documents, Further It is very rare for the program to be down or out of service. We can depend on Microsoft being accessible when we need it.

The online version too limited in features . Gets stack sometime which need to look by Microsoft. Resource hungry may be the issue.

Office 365 is being used across my whole organization for almost everything that we do - email, accessing email, excel, word, power-point, and so on. t is the industry standard and meets our needs quite well.Microsoft Office 365 is the complete suite of business productivity tools. It has everything you need for most day-to-day needs, but sometimes it get stack or frequent updates delays ongoing process. Further, Modules like Project are add-on costs. which is just irritating. Additionally Email / Outlook is a bit heavy.

"Office 365 - My review"

What do you like best?

Office 365 is an excellent solution for people who work a lot outside the home. The main advantage of this platform is the fact that we have access to the whole Office package so that we can access our favorite programs from any device (Windows/Mac/Linux/IOS/Android) at your fingertips. Another advantage is that by using Office 365, I have saved a lot of space on the drives of the computers I use. When using Office 365, my greatest attention was drawn to the ability to store data in the cloud, so that in the event of a failure of our hardware, we always have a backup of critical data.

What do you dislike?

While using Office365, I did not notice any defect that could affect my opinion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a multi-purpose office suite, you should consider buying an office suite because it will make your work more efficient.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Office365 saves me a lot of time to move and back up files.

"Office 365 - Office on multiple devices"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Office 365 is its multiple installations. Now, Office 365 Personal can be installed on up 5 devices (PC or Mac) and on up to 5 Mobile devices (Phones or Tablets). Office 365 Home, on the other hand, can be shared on up to 5 users and each user can install Office 365 on up to 5 devices and up to 5 mobile devices. Imagine that for $69 (US Price), you may have Office on 5 computers and 5 mobile devices. Office 365 Home is for $99. Office 365 as well, unlike Office 2019, can be installed on operating system as old as Windows 7 for PC and Sierra for MacOS.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I dislike with Office 365 is that if your account gets suspended, usually for payment issue, you wont be able to manage and fix it without contacting Microsoft Support. Which can be easily done since Office support can be contacted thru chat, 24/7.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Office 365 is very recommendable for companies that need to have Office applications on multiple computers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Office applications, can only be installed and activated on one computer at a time per license. Since we are a company with hundreds of computers. Microsoft Office 365 helped our company financially by subscribing to Office 365 Pro Plus which enables us to have numerous of installation on a single subscription only.

"Microsoft Office 365 with Online Collaboration"

What do you like best?

I like that Microsoft Office 365 has new features that help me collaborate online. I'm now able to share a workbook to allow multi user access.

What do you dislike?

Some of the reports within Microsoft Excel are quite complicated to produce, and I would like to see more drop down filter options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good way to get all the Microsoft applications in one go, and get the latest updates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use a few of the programs in the Office 365 suite. The main software I use in it is Microsoft Excel, which I use for querying downloaded reports. I can run filters, such as service users who have not had an assessment for a certain number of days, or assessments that are awaiting verification. I am grateful for the existence of Office 365, as it has helped me develop skills I need for my career. I've also been experimenting with the new collaboration features where a few of us in the office can open the same shared workbook at the same time.

"Office365 very modern but sometimes to fast with releases. "

What do you like best?

Office365 is a reliable piece of software and it's very user friendly and flexible in terms of admin access and what level people need access. You can learn pretty much anyone how to use the admin console. On a user level you have an easy way to install and let the end user know how to use the software. It's easy to use for the end user and they can most of the time go ahead and install and login by themselves.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Microsoft tend to update something in the Office365 without enough testing which cause error - like you will be unable to update your subscriptions plan etc. It usually takes a couple of days before it has been reverted back to the old version - but there's always a solution to the problem. You can get a regular support agent to handle the basics but might need one with more seniority to do the more advanced stuff.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think about the support level you need and the people who handle the software. Is there anyone with powershell abilities or do you just need the basic features? You need someone in your organisation who's good in a bit of everything within the Office365 world.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has a console that's pretty easy to administer and gives you as an admin the ability to follow anything needed via track and trace and much more. The flexibility of the tool is crucial. The users have an easy way to use software to keep their productivity high and be able to work without interruptions,

"Best one-stop-shop tool for all internal and customer facing communication"

What do you like best?

I like being able to have one tool and one tool only for all communication needs. Office 365 is like a one stop shop for all tools needed for sales and customer communication from, PowerPoints, notes on OneNote, storage and sharing with SharePoint and OneDrive, to internal/external communication with Teams.

What do you dislike?

So far I've liked every tool I've used and don't have any complaints at this time. But, if I had to add something I dislike, I would say that the connection between online and the PC could improve a little. Not sure if this is an internal technical issue, but sometimes I'be saved something on my PC but it does not get uploaded to the Drive correctly or at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Office 365 gives us the flexibility to use multiple tools to effectively execute communication and drive business efficiency. This tool allows our sales team to take notes, create presentations, share documents, add value, and follow business processes in order to be successful and professional. Another great thing I've seen from having Office 365 is the flexibility to use their tools and software from any computer or any place as long as you have internet. This allows our field or remote reps, the ability to login from their mobile devices and access customer information needed to close deals or drive value.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to communicate effectively and efficiently at work for internal and customer-facing communications. Being able to share information securely, easy, and fast to help close deals or grow our pipeline.

"The future of MS Office to Cloud"

What do you like best?

Office 365 solves the modern day business productivity problems of being always available On the GO, or ability to work remotely and collaborate easily with this latest software suite.

All the apps are very powerful and are mobile ready to be used on the go with the specific apps. The features are always latest and we can collaborate with team members very easily. The Teams application is a great tool to start reducing email overload, and the Planner app provides the next gen features for collaboration and task tracking.

What do you dislike?

The sign on process is cumbersome with a redirection being done immediately after entering the email address.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best productivity suite and continuous development to provide the latest features on the go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaboration with team members remotely is very easy now and respond to business emails and review details on the go with mobile ready apps.

"Good Product. "

What do you like best?

Possibility of mix all the tools into Ofimatic Suite is very useful in order to make some complex documents. The chance of put on documents other documents is awesome. The opportunity of make some tasks in cloud is a great characteristic. Permits integration with some social networks (Yammer in my case).

What do you dislike?

In some cases, the workload of the tools has been affected by the bandwidth. With high-weight documents is complicated to work very fast, because i need to wait some time in process some attach documents into others.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check if works for your company, in order to compare with other cloud-based tools (i.e. Google Docs) and the value-added of have both interfaces (desktop and cloud) to work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Generally, the chance of have a cloud-based tool have us a very useful way to synchronize all the documents in a lot of computers around the company.

"Must-have for any professional setting"

What do you like best?

The programs that come with Office 365's subscription are essential for any workplace. Excel, Word, and Powerpoint are the best programs of their kind, and Outlook is certainly getting there. I most enjoy using Excel for data organization and statistical analysis, whereas Word is the go-to program for writing up manuscripts sent to scientific journals.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much I dislike about Office 365. The only minor flaw in my opinion is Outlook, which has a tendency to be difficult to work with if there's a lengthy email chain. Some emails appear either above or below the most recent email, which makes it a nightmare to find where I need to look to find an older email in the chain. Additionally, it can sometimes be a bit slow and the font default formatting is sometimes inconsistent, but it isn't a major problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

100% worth the subscription cost if you use it frequently

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's fully integrated into my workplace. My colleagues and I use Excel for data organization, analysis, and basic figure generation (bar graphs, charts, etc.). We use Word for writing manuscripts to submit as published papers, and Powerpoint is used on a weekly basis for project updates. Without Office 365, we'd be in trouble.

"A must have for a company that needs collaboration and users that need "

What do you like best?

Microsoft office 365 brings Microsoft word into a new level of experience that I cannot get enough of. Being able to use on my phone, my iPad, and attach the accounts to my local copies of office as a point of integration is a large plus for me. The file management of one drive is very versatile, straightforward, and very beneficial in many of the situations that myself, and many parts of my team has encountered. I am a fan of the real-time collaboration that Microsoft Word offers, and wish that the rest of the suite specifically excel could offer the same.

What do you dislike?

The real time editing you have with word is not available with excel. I work in multiple locations and use excel mostly of asset, and project management purposes. Being able to edit from multiple users (especially team asset management projects) would be a great a answer for the work we do versus using possibly illegal methods like google sheets. I do not use PowerPoint, so I cannot vouch if it is the same issue of not being able to do real time editing from multiple users or devices. Depending on your organization’s policies, you may not be able to share to outside users. This may be an annoyance for anyone who may have to communicate to vendors or outside contractors. I also had issues with the conflicts of changes in word. I never fully understood the concept of resolving the changes. There’s also really no straightforward way of establishing shared folders. When it comes to Outlook, I’m not a fan of the mobile format, and I believe it’s the same issue on the PC where as I cannot see the time of the email. I sent feedback to Microsoft, still have many others. It’s an annoying issue. Most emails when reference in the business environment just don’t go by date.a time is needed. An issue with outlook on line is the layout of file folders within the emails. If I have a certain layout, or order within outlook, it cannot be replicated for outlook online.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep in mind, there is a learning curve with sharing folders. You still need a local team regarding maintenance and exchange server support along with share point support. Cost is a big factor as this is a service platform from Microsoft. Also consider the fact technical support teams will need to have knowledge not just within Microsoft office products, but share point, as well as the common issues.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to work on documents at any internet enabled location. With OneDrive enabled, I can share specific folders that helps resolves a pending issue. These can be any type of files. For example we might receive a rapid response ticket that the resolution may require a custom patch. I can upload the patch and send a link to share to anyone within the organization. This a great help because of the location less infrastructure. I was able to resolve the instant demands for documents outlining areas of responsibility and many other documentation’s. I am also able to review SOW‘s anywhere I am. In previous jobs I was able to send many of documents, as well as create documents for many of the projects that I had to work on. Since I am also part of a rapid response team. It is very important to be able to retrieve emails very instantly. This also includes invoices from vendors, receipts and many other forms of documentation that are attachments very instantly This also includes invoices from vendors, receipts and many other forms of documentation that or in the forms for my file attachments. Outlook does a very great job of being able to pull the text from especially if it is searchable PDF.

"Powerful & Feature Packed Tool for Small Business!"

What do you like best?

I like that this software can be easily downloaded on multiple computers throughout the office, with the subscription plan. Upgrading every year gives peace of mind that we always have the latest version running. The support received from Microsoft is beneficial when you're a subscriber and easy-to-use with the Chat feature. You get all the programs, including OneNote and Publisher, which didn't use to come standard with the purchased Office program before that came on the CD. This is really the most versatile product out there that links all document word processing into one easy-to-use suite that can be shared throughout the company with ease. The Calendar is a great feature to have, that links appointments automatically with email, making sure that all the dates and deadlines that need to be remembered are not overlooked. f for whatever reason you don't have your computer with you, you can access 'office on demand'. This will stream a copy of office to any internet connected machine and you can access your files via sky drive. With 365 you are leasing the latest version. So as long as we maintain our subscription, in a few years when the next version comes out we will be able to upgrade without having to 're-buy' office every time that a new update is released.

What do you dislike?

The app email is a little hit or miss; sometimes we experience issues with emails not loading or not being updated from the desktop site to the mobile site. However, there are not a lot of issues with Office 365 -- has been a great tool for business use!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Office 365 is a solid product that runs quite smooth. It feels more streamlined than office 2010, and it can really reclaim those people that switched to the free software. Having automatic updates really keeps your software running efficiently and makes sure that you don't miss out on any of the newest features offered. The price is good for all of the software programs that you receive and having the ability to license multiple computers is really a nice option. Automatic subscription renewal is great for those offices who don't want the hassle of having to keep on top of renewal dates; Microsoft makes it an easy program to own and use!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted a program that would allow us to create word processing documents and make flyers for properties. Office 365 has helped us with those tasks and make it easier to share over multiple computer stations throughout our office with ease.

"Office 365 offers many services for enterprise users"

What do you like best?

I primarily use Outlook and Excel for work as part of the Office 365 subscription through work. Outlook is a nice full featured email client with a lot of features to communicate with your team and connecting to the company email directory is a great addition so you don't have to remember each and every email address.

What do you dislike?

Excel is difficult to use in the sense that it can be terribly slow loading certain spreadsheets that depend on a lot of macros. Logging into the account can be tedious since it sometimes requires two successful 2FA's but this doesn't happen every time. Seems like it reoccurs once you've been logged out for an extended period of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Everything is in the cloud, which can be a double edge sword. 99% of the time it's convenient.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Once our company switched from Exchange to O365 our email seemed to be more reliable. We lost a lot of emails in the switch but since then it's been rock solid.

"MICROSOFT OFFICE 365 HOW GREEDY CAN YOU BE? Really a yearly fee?"

What do you like best?

I love my little laptop LENOVO but when having it serviced to begin use Lenovo uploaded office 365 business when all I am is a home user. I told the person who was setting up my computer, but here I am with 365 and DONT NEED IT!!! Bait and switch

What do you dislike?

"Excelent tool to work on team"

What do you like best?

Office 365 offers the best and upgraded programs for office work. The power of excel, the visual style of Powerpoint and the text features of Word are complemented by OneNote, Publisher and Sway. Products for a integral job at any field. The sync feature to have all documents in a cross-platform environment (Windows-Mac in my case)

What do you dislike?

The compatibility in macOS si not reliable as it is in windows. Sometimes the amount of resources need by each software made the experience in older or less powerfull computer, a mess.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is an excellent tool for documents, presentations and spreedsheet work. Will do on your Windows PC, mac, iPad, iPhone, and Android devices

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Office 365 works for any kind of problems at work. A video, a text, a brochure or even a well styled table. Office 365 will do the work just fine

What do you dislike?

what seems bad to me, but just as subjective, is the storage space for the free version, besides, that seems to me a very complete and friendly application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

for me it would be good to make more knowledge about the improvements of this office merger, since according to my point of view there is not so much publicity

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What I can contribute again in this review is that Office 365, made a revolution in terms of organization of work and completion of tasks within the company, you can create workgroups, customize emails, create stages of projects, all under one software, is excellent.

"Complete Suit for your daily tasks"

What do you like best?

We use Office 365 for mails, document management and presentations. The cloud based suite supports the ability to work from anywhere thus making the collaboration easy between the teams.

Apps like Dropbox helps us to share our documents easily and securely with our clients.

No need to worry about the changing versions of the office, as Office 365 keeps the latest version all the time.

What do you dislike?

Other than heavy dependency on Internet I do not see any reason to dislike this.

May be the subscription cost can be brought down to grab more users, but not sure as this is just a suggestion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a custom secured all in one suite, then Office 365 is one the great in current market. WIth support on Monthly / Annual subscriptions you and your company can easily migrate the current environment to cloud and never worry about your data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Secure email was one of the main feature we use on a daily basis.

Also, most of the times our teams needs to work on the same document and cloud based Office suite supports to get the real time changes and we need not worry about multiple versions.

"Best office software with no match"

What do you like best?

I use Word and Excel the most. Word is obviously just a great word processor that has features like Outline mode, which lets you very easily move paragraphs around based on their headings (I use this a LOT when drafting papers and reports). Excel is fantastic for budgeting and I make extensive use of the functions available like addition and multiplication. I've made a few PowerPoints for showcasing software features as well, and PowerPoint templates and "Design Ideas" are huge time savers.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that some of the software suite is unavailable on macOS even though you pay the same yearly fee as you do for Windows. For example, Microsoft Publisher and Microsoft Access are not available for use on macOS. There is also no native dark mode on macOS like there is on Windows, and the actual programs are less fully featured on the Mac when compared to their Windows equivalents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check what software you'll use day to day. There's different Office 365 tiers that offer different services for different price levels.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Excel spreadsheets and formulas make computing mathematical functions a breeze, so I save many man-hours just with the use of Excel functions. Word saves me design time since it's so easy to make reports look good using templates and keyboard shortcuts (Ex: Control+B for bold). Basically, the Office suite just saves me a ridiculous amount of man-hours.

"'Office 365' helps me to manage my business emails & documents easily from anywhere"

What do you like best?

I can create and edit work-sheets over mobile devices from anywhere at any time. So i don't worry about the current location of mine.

Subscription plans are very light and valuable for money. Currently i'm using "Office 365 Enterprise E3" package in my workplace.

User interfaces are very rich. Anyone can easily sync up with the products.

Mainly i'm using outlook product because it's my primary email service provider in my company. It's very secure and simple.

And i can easily access all the required features, such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Power-Point, Microsoft Access, Microsoft One-Note by logging into my Microsoft account.

Also they have given me free 'One-drive' storage to store my files. So i'm not using any local storage anymore. It's very secure and handy way to protect confidential information and it's very impressive feature they provide to customers.

Highly recommended for any type of users.

What do you dislike?

When internet connections is not steady, application will show "slow responses" to our commands.

It's better if you have a good network connection if you're using this application. Other than that there are no any drawbacks to say.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using 'Microsoft Word' for prepare my documents and 'Microsoft PowerPoint' to prepare my daily presentations. It helps me to get done my daily tasks easily.

"Microsoft Office 365: The Best Solution for Our Business"

What do you like best?

We really like how Microsoft Office 365 connects our GoDaddy email (under our MX email records) to Microsoft Outlook online! This is the best way to accept contact responses from the online form on our website. We not only use Office 365 to accept contact responses, but we also use Office 365 for webmaster requests. We like how Office 365 has mobile apps and smart webmail services.

What do you dislike?

We dislike how Office 365 has complicated instructions for email forwarding. We also dislike how Office 365 is forced into GoDaddy. It is very costly as well; compared to the 100 free non-Office 365 emails that 1&1 provides. With Office 365 within GoDaddy, one must pay per email, which is way too costly to afford, compared to 1&1 and Google Apps. 1&1 and Google Apps let you pay for a bunch of emails.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When using Office 365, we recommend setting aside a good budget for emails, since it costs per account. Also, we suggest familiarization with Microsoft's online products, as well as utilization of account forwarding, in order to ensure receipt of emails.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Office 365, we did not have a place to check our online form responses. Office 365 helps us see the responses on our website's contact form. Office 365 also helps us have a webmaster email to check people's feedback on site improvement suggestions. We have been using Office 365 to forward incoming emails to our personal emails for our ease.

"Super useful"

What do you like best?

I like that I can access my programs anywhere. I don't have to download anything, I can use it online if I want. I also like that it is all the products are integrated with one another. I use Office 365 at school and also at home. I like that because all of the different apps are connected, it makes it much easier to work with them as a whole. The calendar within email is great. I have my email pulled up and it makes sure I don't miss appointments. I also like that I can add appointments to the calendar from email.

What do you dislike?

I use Office 365 for school. If my school hadn't purchased it, I wouldn't be using it. It's too expensive for me. I feel that Microsoft would have more users at a lower price point.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is an overall good suite of products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I plan my lessons using Word. We share files with SharePoint. I use OneDrive to store my files. I use outlook for school email to stay in contact with colleagues and parents. I feel that the interconnectivity of all of the Office products is beneficial because it makes it much easier to attach files with other programs. I like that the OneDrive is connected to everything because I also use Google Drive and Dropbox, and I have to download the file in order to attach it to an email. I appreciate that the calendar is integrated into the email. I have the email up all the time, and having calendar appointments visible is great.

"Office 365"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the high amount of storage that is available for use. I do not have to archive emails anymore. In addition, it is very user friendly. The buttons at the top have descriptive photos under them and the calendar allows you to color coordinate your schedule making it easy to prioritize your day. I can select and unselect certain colors which is helpful when I need to go back and track meetings. I find it to be extremely helpful helping me manage all of the things on my to-do list for the day and for the week. My productivity has increases substantially since I started using this software. I can never go back to anything else. I love that I can easily use it from my cell phone as well. Much of the functionality is kept when using it on your phone as if you were using it from your personal computer. When I am away, I can easily set my away message from my phone without having to log in to a computer.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the focused vs other mail tab. I am not sure how it besides what goes into your other tab, but it almost works as a secondary spam folder. I miss emails at time if I do not check it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great program that I encourage all to take advantage of and really learn all that it has to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Office 365 has resolved the low storage issue of Microsoft Outlook. The benefits of having this additional storage allows me to keep all of my emails and attachments localized to my inbox and not archive them to my desktop. This helps me with managing my work time.

"Microsoft Office Experience Taken to Another level!"

What do you like best?

My most favourite thing about Office 365 is the fact that it is cloud-based. I am able to access my documents and the office applications(excel, word, powerpoint etc) from any device - tablet, phone, PC etc. My files are secure. In the event my computer crashes, my files are safe.

Another advantage of Office 365 is that my colleagues and I are able to collaborate on the same document without creating duplicates of the file. To me, this is a very powerful feature that makes collaboration more manageable and faster.

The closest alternative to Office 365 is Google Docs. Office 365 is better than Google Docs because it offers a familiar user experience to the Desktop Version of Microsoft office products. Google docs interface is significantly different from the desktop version of office.

What do you dislike?

The disadvantage of Office 365 is that it is pricey and most of the time the users of the application do not make use of all the functionality that comes with the application.

Another downside of Office 365 is that you have to have an internet connection for you to use the application. If the internet is slow or not available, you can't access your documents or the apps.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cloud is the future. Office 365 gives you the kind of flexibility and convenience you need to survive in the modern work environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Office, collaboration is much easier and efficient.

"Las mejores herramientas de colaboración: Office 365"

What do you like best?

Office 365 es el conjunto de herramientas de ofimática y servicios en la nube. Esta versión del ya conocido Microsoft Office ofrece la posibilidad de trabajar en equipo de una manera muy sencilla. Nos asegura tener siempre la última versión de Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, entre otros. Además cuenta con 1 TB en OneDrive para que puedas almacenar todo lo que necesites pudiendo compartir con cualquier persona esos archivos. Existen diferentes suscripciones como la Hogar o Estudiantes. Pero si tengo que destacar algo es que puedes usar todas estas herramientas desde la nube sin tener que instalar nada.

What do you dislike?

El problema que encuentro no es de Office 365 sino del modelo de pago que usa. La suscripción no es para toda la vida, y por tanto cuando se acabe el periodo de la licencia tendrás que volver a pagarla. Como digo, no es un problema de Office 365, pero si que es cierto que podrían modificar el modelo de negocio actual, manteniendo la suscripción pero cuando llegues al precio de lo que vale el software, dejes de pagar y puedas disfrutar de él de por vida.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Office 365 es un gran acierto por parte de Microsoft pero está dedicado al uso laboral o académico. Si eres un usuario común y quieres usar herramientas como Word o Excel, es mejor que optes por la versión normal de Office. En cambio, si formas parte de un entorno laboral o académico o eres un administrador de sistemas que quiere unificar a todos los usuarios (ya sea en una universidad o en una empresa) es mucho mejor usar la versión 365 de Office.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilizar Office 365 nos asegura a todo el equipo de la empresa utilizar el mismo software y la misma versión, pudiendo optimizar el tiempo en lo que se nos pide. Además podemos almacenar cosas relacionadas a nuestro trabajo en OneDrive.
