Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall office 365 has been great for what we need, the ability to cater licenses to business and user needs is definitely a plus. Some of the other applications have made communication easier and better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As long as you have decent internet connectivity, I can't really think of any reason why you would not be using this product. Pretty much every business has some need that can be filled by one of the products in 365 that would justify the honestly nominal fees and you'll end up getting 10 other products that you aren't currently using bundled with it.To get a branded email address with Exchange backed hosting alone is worth what they're charging for the whole suite of stuff. It's less money to have that alone cloud hosted for you then doing it yourself after you setup all the garbage associated with running a proper email server nowadays.My only real complaint with it would be speed. But then I've never really used any cloud hosted anything that was speedy yet. The only customer that I use who I would say "sure go ahead and throw everything up there" has 2g fiber hand-off. It's going to be a while before Comcast gets their uplink over 15mb and I'd be comfortable telling people to put 500g of data onto Sharepoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used this for a few companies I have worked and it's pretty cool. Good way to keep the company organized and it has a lot to offer, especially with the online apps. You will see changes in functionality on the online versions but they are still super powerful and it's great how you can connect everyone. Build out a sharepoint site and you will have it even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Microsoft has done a great job of standardizing this suite of applications into one platform. It does cost more but then there is less maintenance on the local side.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More time is saved with Office 365, which in turn leads to better results because more effort is available for completing the actual projects versus figuring out how to execute them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus is the enterprise version of the installable Office 365. It works just like the Office we've always had but integrates with your O365 web portal and other tools. The multiple installs is generous and new features and products are added all of the time.
