Office 365 Business Essentials from CDW is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 271.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Management in Office365 is simpler and more intuitive in some areas than it was before with just exchange or active directory, however, Moving to O365 from a local exchange can have its fair share of headaches. Unfortunately not ALL functionality gets moved over and there are still pointers to clean up once a move is done however as a product that is not being placed into an existing mess it is a great product worth the money for any size organization.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the cloud storage via OneDrive. Updates to new versions are included so no more users asking when can they get the latest version and working with document converters :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall we're happy with Office 365. I love that email isn't hosted on-prem, and the administrative tools are pretty helpful. My only gripe is with their support- if you have an issue and need to call it in, good luck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Business Premium features fit our company needs more than the enterprise features. The only downfall was being unable to setup federated ad services. The AD Sync tool is sufficient for our needs though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There are so many things that you can do using a Business Premium or higher account. The hardest thing about it is keeping up with all the new uses that come out. I love the fact that they are always making it better.
