By using Microsoft 365 Business Premium throughout the organization we help each other stay in sync and interconnected. There is no way that there is someone who does not use this service. We have compared this software with others and I think this is the best, as it handles sufficiently efficient tools in day-to-day work, where everything is constantly updated.
  • Work in sync in different departments.
  • Being able to work from any device or computer. It is a very noble tool in different devices.
  • The work between the different programs (Word, Excel, Notes) that it offers is extremely light and good.
  • At times it does not recognize the spell repair tool.
  • In the creation of tables, it does not allow to recover the format of another of its programs (such as, for example, a format that we want to copy from Excel to Word is distorted).
  • When we want to use the comments section on paragraphs or parts of the document, it does not allow us to interact freely between users. Sometimes we can't name each other.
I believe that Microsoft 365 Business Premium is applicable for any type of work or scenario. It's what I like the most about this program. In addition, it is the software that is used the most here in Mexico, and that makes it accessible to all, we should not spend financial or time in training new recruits, they recognize it just by looking at it. Where I think it could not work well is in the use of some devices, such as tablets. In things, it is very difficult to use these programs on manual devices, outside of computers.

We use office 365 Business premium for nearly everything in our business. It is used throughout the entire company from the office personnel to the superintendents that are out in the field. It allows us to keep all of our data and files cloud-based so they can be accessed from anywhere. I can be working on a spreadsheet or proposal in the office and then send a link to a project manager in the field to finish it up and send it to a client. It also helped during the height of the pandemic when we were all working remotely. We use teams to conduct meetings and stay in touch with each other and our clients. Overall it has really been a game-changer as far as productivity.
  • Allows us to work remotely.
  • Allows for all employees to access the most up-to-date information at any given time.
  • Allows us to connect with out-of-town clients or those that aren't comfortable with face-to-face meetings yet.
  • The only thing that is a bit cumbersome is that it doesn't seem that you can save files directly to programs like one drive if you aren't using a Microsoft program to generate the document. An example of this would be if I am working in a PDF in our PDF Program I have to first save it to my desktop and then drag it into one drive. I end up with duplicates and that can sometimes make it hard to remember which is the most up-to-date.
Microsoft 365 Business Premium is well suited for companies that have members that work both in an office and out in the field, or maybe even remotely from home. It allows the admin to control who has access to what information and keep things secure while also ensuring that information is available to those who need it. If you are a small company of just a few employees it may not be quite as helpful, but it's hard to think of a scenario in which you couldn't make it fit your needs.

We use it organization wide for all Microsoft programs: Word, Excel, PPT, etc. It allows us to easily share documents, look at version history and it works with our Adobe Creative Suite for converting documents to PDF.
  • Keeps programs up to date.
  • Allows for sharing documents.
  • Web-based so we can access documents easily if needed.
  • Microsoft has issues sometimes with updates.
  • Some updates don't make sense, like making tasks harder instead of easier.
Almost everyone uses Microsoft products so the collaboration with the web-based documents is good. We do need to watch the version of Microsoft that others are using since if a document is saved in a later version it may not have all functionality for someone who has an earlier version. All of our users are fine, but some people outside of our organization still use old versions.

It is being used across the organization.
  • Integration of several services/apps.
  • Rich web and desktop experience.
  • Continuous development.
  • Outlook's visual rendering sometimes messes. The treeview does not draw.
  • Outlook's reminders need to be enhanced. More options for the reminder UI, to make sure I don't miss an appointment.
  • Teams is a hog!! Please make it less resource-hungry. When we conduct a meeting, the computer slows down. It's an i5 9th gen but the CPU is working hard.
M365 BP is well suited to a company of our size. We need a managed solution for the whole organization and a single price point for a big grab bag of applications. Not everyone uses them all, but company-wide, we use a lot of them.

It Is Used By The Whole Organization. Very positive experience - any successful business would find significant efficiencies and opportunities by moving to 365.Pros When we moved away from on premise platform and old versions of exchange to office 365 - it opened up a complete new world of opportunity - the main positive things about 365 is purely the flexibility it gives you. be that working on the go or interfacing to a Microsoft application or other 3rd party apps. its absolutely invaluable.
  • I love the advanced security & ease of use with this program
  • The cloud based business applications make a world of difference.
  • A problem I've ran into using Word was that the document needed a lot of modifications in order to be uploaded as an ebook and published on Amazon.
  • I hate, hate, hate, hate the fact that you cannot install each app on its own.
Microsoft 365 is like a hub for all your Microsoft software including one drive. our office uses SharePoint and I access that along with backing up my computer and files for on the go with one drive. It just all-in-one complete productivity suite you need to do your job. An auto-save document feature (i use OneDrive) that saves me thousand time, and the fact that this software is a standard in every industry brings convenience to its users to exchange document and work on same project.

It is used by our all members of or business. We find it beneficial as it provides a robust set of tools (Word, Excel, PP, etc) on a subscription basis. We like the fact that the subscription provides us continuous updates and we don't have to purchase new downloads every year or so.
  • Integration of work tools
  • Subscription basis
  • Regular updates.
  • Too tight integration with Outlook
  • Less changes to Word function navigation
  • Less confusion when making changes to fonts and formatting in Power Point
Microsoft 365 does a great job in delivering MS Office programs to all members of the team. We use Dropbox for document management and it ingrates nicely with that. We had tried using Google Drive and found that its document management is not nearly as intuitive as Microsoft. The only issue is when that autosave requires me to log into One Drive which we do not use.

Builder.ai is a Microsoft partner, so we sell M365 as a product and also use it.
IT majorly address mailing solution along with the capabilities of collaboration tools like teams which is a completely secure platform.
Initially, we were using 2 or different collaboration tools like Zoom for video calls and meetings and Slack for chat's but not we only use one platform.
Also, all the employees are familiar with Microsoft Office so it gives the ability of online and offline office, which makes employees always available with or without internet. Their mailing solution is one of the best and secure mailing solutions. Example: In a case, your email is not delivered, then they also tell the reason (like it has gone in spam, or maybe email address incorrect, etc)
  • 1 TB of cloud storage on OneDrive per user
  • latest versions of Microsoft office, Word, Excel, PowerPoint,
  • advanced cyberthreats with sophisticated phishing and ransomware protection
  • In love with Teams as a product
  • Encrypts the date hence is very very safe. I believe this is one of the best product
  • All the features should be supported in windows Home the way they are in windows 10 pro
  • Cost of the product is bit expensive per user basis
  • Azure AD P2 license should be given along with this for single sign on feature
But I suggest that companies who are small scale and especially startups should go with this solution as you don't need anything else apart from Microsoft 365 business premium. They have 1 TB of storage per person/user so it saves on your storage cost and even on buying expensive servers. Also, you don't need to buy separate Microsoft office tools like Excel (which is maximum used in all organizations), Word, PowerPoint etc. so hence you are saving the cost indirectly.
It is not suited for organizations who are only looking for a mailing solution or a budget-friendly solution

We utilize Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook daily. We also take advantage of the cloud storage to ensure the security of our documents and files, which provides easy access to all staff when shared documents are needed. It is utilized throughout the organization. It allows the organization to share documents through the cloud. Outlook is online, however, the necessities provided are perfect for what is required for the agency.
  • Cloud storage for easy access and sharing
  • Easy navigation
  • Makes it easy to provide real time feedback
Well suited for all business situations that require documentation or record keeping. This product allows for document sharing and editing, which is helpful and so many other positive things.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium is used in my daily affairs with documenting and emailing. Microsoft 365 Business Premium is being used across the entire organization at VOA. However, I am unsure if specific departments utilize the resource. Microsoft 365 Business Premium is used to resolve the organization problems with filling and ordering information.
  • Organizing Data
  • Collecting Information
  • Sending Information
  • Fast Pace
  • Most Resources
  • Easier Log In
Microsoft 365 Business Premium is well suited for scenarios with transferring confidential information. Also organizing all material in an orderly fashion. Microsoft 365 Business Premium is not well suited for scenarios of personal relation without professional usage. The safe usage on a professional setting of Microsoft 365 Business Premium to collect private information.

This software is being used across our organization. We are slowly implementing it in layers to maximize everyone's use of all of the features. It allows us to keep our documents and data secure and to streamline many processes that were traditionally very limited by the lack of technological innovations. We can use Teams to communicate in real time but keep work conversations out of our text messages. Everything integrated with Sharepoint, outlook, teams, OneDrive, and Power Apps makes communication and collaboration a breeze - especially when our employees work out of separate locations.
  • Communication in real time integrated with document creation and sharing.
  • Mobile apps available with full functionality on the go.
  • Calendar and Sharepoint functionality is essential to the success of our mission.
  • Some features could be much easier to use than they currently are. Some of the apps and other features require a developer or other Microsoft Certified expert and are not as user friendly as we'd like them to be.
  • Training is available through third parties but organizations don't always have the time to do this. The self help articles on the Microsoft website are outdated sometimes - and can be a waste of time without you realizing it until it's too late!
  • Data integrity could be better managed - many times through the setup process when we upload items in bulk, the upload manager will indicate a successful data transfer but the file will be corrupted (and we didn't notice it until after we deleted the originals).
Microsoft 365 Business Premium is appropriate for medium sized organizations that require lots of real-time collaboration and data sharing. It's truly the standard for collaboration with customers or other individuals outside of your organization as well. I would recommend purchasing some sort of onboarding assistance if offered to train and assist employees and leaders in the organization with implementing this software so that it can be used to the fullest extent. This particular subscription would be less appropriate for smaller organizations or independent entrepreneurs.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium is used across our whole organization even if not all parts are used by everyone. It contains a lot of features that are useful for different departments. Whether its Outlook which connects all our employees by email or Excel which is used for our scheduling for all employees
  • Contains many different systems in one package
  • The word program is hard to be beaten by other word type programs
  • Is much easier to use than a lot of similar programs
  • Outlook email is over complicated for an email program
  • Some of the software such as Excel can be glitchy
  • Can be more costly than similar programs
Microsoft 365 Business premium is well suited if you want to get a bundle of very useful programs at one time that while may have occasional glitches are mostly well designed and most easy to use. Most businesses would benefit from this package. I cannot think of any type of business that does not use or cannot use at least part of this.

We use the full 365 Office Suite, with Outlook, Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneDrive being the most heavily used applications. It's the industry standard, so it plays nice with the applications most of our vendors, partners and clients use. And with the subscription feature, we have access to the latest applications and updates, which gives us tremendous peace of mind from an IT security standpoint.
  • Integration -- all applications in the suite work well together and with other office software
  • Online resources -- available templates are plentiful and save time
  • Collaboration -- sharing resources is incredibly easy and collaboration tools are well designed
  • Mac compatibility -- applications are not as reliable on Mac platforms
  • Mac compatibility -- difficult to integrate with Apple file formats
  • Speed -- opening documents or spreadsheets can sometimes bog down machines
I can't think of a single business that wouldn't benefit from 365 since it's what most other businesses use. While there are competitors out there, 365 continues to be the standard, making it indispensable for any 21st-century office. Its widespread adoption also helps when recruiting potential employees, as there's an excellent chance the candidate has used some or all of the suite's applications in a previous position. But it's not perfect, and if you're [an] Apple shop, you may be frustrated by the somewhat less reliable performance on Mac machines.

When COVID-19 became headline news and the country was shutting down to keep infections at a minimum during the pandemic, we were required to work from home. Microsoft 365 Business Premium was invaluable to us during that difficult time. We could easily work from home with little to no interruption and still collaborate with our colleagues about how best to defend our clients in our very busy insurance defense practice. We will never use another product.
  • Work remotely with ease
  • All documents readily available
  • This software can be used on any device
  • Very user friendly and efficient
  • Confidence in Microsoft brand performance and dependability
  • Cost effective with always having the latest updates without having to purchase a new software package
  • Customer service is outstanding
  • Maybe a better instant messaging system with encryption
  • Automatic encryption of outlook emails sending and receiving
  • Better collaboration with Adobe or Kofax software
There is very little to not like about [Microsoft 365 Business Premium]. In a law firm setting it is superior and is the leader in business office user end software. We use it for electronic discovery requests, review, trial prep, depositions, just about every aspect of the legal field can be covered with [Microsoft 365 Business Premium]. I highly recommend it.

We're a consultancy working with large businesses, and Microsoft's Office products are a standard part of life. Although Word feels heavy for straightforward word processing in this day and age, Excel is still the gold standard for wrangling midsized data sets and inventories that would give other tools fits.
  • Data analysis
  • Reporting and presentation
  • Rounds of editing and collaboration on large reports and documents
  • Complex tasks are possible, but simple tasks are hard
  • Mac users are locked out of Visio
I'll be honest: as a Mac user, Microsoft 365 Business Premium feels like a poor first choice for day to day work--Numbers and Pages on MacOS are great tools for simple reports and number crunching. But the companies we work with run on Microsoft Office, and having the real thing beats any alternative for simple, no-hiccups inter-operation. Excel, in particular, is still the gold standard--dealing comfortably with datasets that Numbers and Google Sheets choke on.

The real frustration is the lack of Visio for the Mac--when collaborating with colleagues on architectural diagrams and simple visualizations for upcoming projects, translating back and forth between Mac-compatible applications (or using the web interface) is a pain.

Best and most essential software in my office laptop and mobile. Office Exchange, SharePoint, Teams, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Drive, Yammer, Skype for Business, ND One Drive is excellent. From any device, we can share our files through a cloud-based subscription service or SharePoint with security. And there is an option to access control your sharing! For the whole organization, it makes work easy. Sometimes, the internet creates a problem to save my data on the cloud. In SharePoint and Teams, tools are not working smoothly.
  • All official work done by one software.
  • From any device, we can share our files through a cloud-based subscription service or SharePoint.
  • Work online and offline on multiple devices.
  • Total security.
  • In SharePoint and Teams tools are not working smoothly.
  • I get logged off sometimes for no reason.
I have a few resorts in different locations. Every day I have to check bookings in Excel. I check all the data from SharePoint, then send instructions to my manager. Clients database, cost sheet, and expenditure I do very easily.

Microsoft 365 is being used across the whole organization. We have yet to tap into its full potential, however, during this time of remote work, some of the tools have been critical to our continuing business operations. Microsoft Teams in particular has allowed us to collaborate remotely as well as conduct interviews to fill open positions.
  • Collaboration
  • Communication
  • Calendaring
  • Real time collaboration
  • Cloud integration
I have used both G-suite and Microsoft group of products. Each is tool suited for a given context. While I prefer G-suite for its simplicity, integration, and built in cloud storage functionality, I would recommend Microsoft to any colleague looking for a more powerful set of tools. While the G-suite is simplistic, Microsoft 365's built in applications are simply more powerful to create documentation, spreadsheets, and presentations.

Microsoft Office 365 is widely used in my organization to solve the various problems which we were facing while presenting the documents. It's user interface is so friendly that you don't need to be a tech savvy to use it. Office 365 also helped my organization to save the files, maintain data of all employees.
  • Easy User interface
  • Presenting slides made easy
  • Maintaining high level data
  • Storage issues resolved
  • File formats can be reduced
  • Storage size can be reduced
  • Need to be more versatile
Microsoft office 365 is very much suited in each and every organisation which wants to grow in much faster ways. Maintaining data is made so easy by Microsoft Office 365. So I will highly recommend to all organization to deploy it and see the fast growing changes. Big thumbs up!!

We use Microsoft 365 Business Premium in several areas. We use the typical staples, such as Excel and Word, for a variety of applications. We use Outlook for all of our email needs. We use Teams for quick communication and for remote communication with our customers. And finally we use One Drive for sharing files with our customers.
  • Teams is a great tool for communicating remotely
  • One Drive works great for sharing large files, such as CAD files
  • It would be very difficult to operate without email
  • Adding ballooned captions in Word can be downright frustrating
  • Table of contents in Word is difficult to use at times
  • Skype is not a reliable program to use; Teams is a much better choice
Great for the remote working environment. It is very easy to stay in contact by using Teams. Large files can be shared using One Drive. Outlook brings everything together. Excel is a very useful tool for cost sheets when quoting new systems. Word is a great way to create simple text documents.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium has been adopted organization wide as our solution for many different applications. This includes typical Email and instant message features, but also through SharePoint integration allowing us to be able to aptly organize an Intranet that is shared across the organization through Microsoft forms and flows, document repositories, etc. The added features of Microsoft InTune and Azure Information Protection – which are not available in lower level M365 products tiers have created a solid foundation for IT asset management and control that compare nicely with other more known end-point management tools that are not as easily integrated into one platform solution.
  • End-Point Management
  • Active Directory Management through Azure
  • Organizational Communication Integration
  • Softphone/Teams Integrations
  • Account Management
  • Administrative Back-End
Whether you are looking for a lower-tier of the Microsoft 365 suite, or want to move into the Business Premium collection, I would strongly recommend it to other colleagues in the field. First and foremost, the cloud management of the Email operation alone is an ideal move in the right direction as it is a cost-effective means to manage Microsoft Exchange. The same cane be said for features such as Azure and Active Directory. Additionally, when you move yourself into the higher tiers, you get a product like InTune which is used for end-point management which helps implement a very thorough mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) policy.

Our office uses Microsoft 365 Business Premium to create document templates, standardized forms, and consistent communication forms for clients and candidates. What were individual software applications now are used as a suite of apps that have cloud storage, sharing, and consistent updates. We also create flyers, brochures, and newsletters with Publisher. Outlook allows us to schedule meetings, appointments, and file important communication for easy retrieval.
  • Sharing calendars--imperative for me to schedule interviews with my team
  • Consistent software updates--we use Word for document templates and interview forms
  • Excel allows us to track candidates by week, provide running totals, and track our progress through the year
  • There are times that Outlook has archived or removed old emails from the system. occasional something gets lost.
  • We have had a few hiccups with OneDrive and sharing information across locations.
  • Occasionally the Outlook search feature does not find what we are seeking.
As a former corporate trainer, this suite feels easy to implement and use. The ability to update as necessary without purchasing a whole new box of software makes it easy to support and add new users. It has the same feel and look people are used to. Overall the features are intuitive and compatible with customers and coworkers.

The whole organization uses Microsoft 365 Business Premium during daily operations. Since we work in consultancy, we handle a lot of sensitive data from clients. Microsoft 365 Business Premium offers the necessary features for data privacy and security.

In addition, it offers many other features, such as share-portal, teams, office applications, and OneDrive. These enable the employees to work simultaneously with the data and decrease the operational workload.

The features such as Office 365 message encryption, data loss prevention, built-in anti-spam protection, anti-malware protection, and Microsoft Defender are very beneficial for preventing hackers and increasing online security.

The devices, Microsoft licenses, and users can be all managed by administrators of the organization. These enable the organization to decrease its costs.

  • Data security and privacy; prevention of unauthorized access
  • Online cybersecurity
  • Decrease costs by bundling multiple Microsoft products
  • Accessibility control and user management
  • OneDrive and Share portal enable building the knowledge library
  • Synchronization problems with OneDrive
  • Not enough tutorials for new users
  • Pricing model should be changed--too expensive
  • Difficult to configure policies
If the organization is a consultancy business or has more than 50 employees, then Microsoft 365 Business Premium is the right choice. If the user is a freelancer, then I do not suggest such an expensive application.

The senior employees may have difficulties to adapt to such a bundle product. OneDrive would be challenging if users start saving their personal files on business laptops. Because these files will be saved on cloud and will not be deleted for some time even though you delete them from the physical laptop.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium is being used throughout our entire organization of 16,000 employees. It allows for using multiple devices and creates a good workflow environment and seamless application toggling. Individuals use the suite of products for their projects, but easily make these files open to collaboration, discussion and overall improvement of the work product. The more the organization understands its capabilities the more they will implement and the higher the quality and quantity of work becomes. I feel that Microsoft 365 is drastically better than other competitors in the marketplace and does a better job packaging the full office necessities and solutions.
  • Workflow Management.
  • Ease of use.
  • Fully integrated.
  • Allow more personalization within certain data fields.
  • Individual price is high.
  • Implement auto-save across all applications.
We've used Microsoft 365 for our business presentations and pitchbooks and the tools are incredibly well suited. It's easy to make a very professional and eloquent presentation quickly. We also love the Outlook Calendar integration across our team members and planning and scheduling has been very effortless and easy. We haven't utilized OneDrive as much due to our own firm having this capability and the cyber security threat of keeping things in the cloud.

We use Microsoft 365 Business Premium across the entire organization. Using this software allows us to collaborate on documents, easily share documents in a secure manner, and store documents in the cloud. This program easily integrates with Microsoft desktop applications, and allows changes to be saved in the cloud as well.
  • Document collaboration
  • Cloud storage
  • Easy connection to desktop Microsoft applications
  • Poor internet connection may reduce ability to fully use this product
  • Clearer way of communicating with others that you have a shared a document/project with them
  • Perhaps not fully compatible with older versions of Microsoft desktop applications
Microsoft 365 Business Premium would be ideal for companies that would like the ability to collaborate on or share projects via the cloud but do not want to use Google. This product also works well with Microsoft desktop applications. It would be less ideal for those who do not have good or consistent internet access, as this will limit ability to get full use out of it.

Microsoft 365 Business Premium is being used across my entire organization. The combination of Teams, OneDrive, and the traditional Office suite (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) is a powerful tool that makes collaboration simple. This is has been invaluable in the virtual environment where most teams are located in disparate locations and utilize Teams to work together.
  • Collaboration--easy use between teammates
  • File management--no more shared drives
  • Many internal Integrations--lots of services
  • Quarterly updates--or upon release depending your security preferences
  • Teams--could benefit from many functions of Slack
  • Routine updates may require more frequent training
  • External integrations are lacking
There is no parallel to the Office 365 Suite. Most businesses already use Microsoft products, but Microsoft 365 Business Premium takes collaboration to the next level. The ability to store files on a personal cloud, edit files through a browser, and receive live updates from Microsoft elevates all users and teams that leverage it.
