Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Office 365

Office 365 is used throughout my entire organization. Through its suite of applications, it solves all of our needs for any spreadsheets, word processing documents, database & publishing needs. This is the industry standard for businesses and deservedly so.
  • Email integration with the cloud Exchange server and local Outlook installs/cloud usage.
  • Spreadsheets and Excel integration with OneDrive.
  • Access use with even much older version of database files.
  • Sometimes files in OneDrive get stuck from being shared properly.
  • I've noticed a vast improvement in performance with Office 365 since upgrading our internet speeds. It seems like a higher than average internet speed is almost required to get Office 365 fully functioning.
  • Office 365 subscription allows constant upgrades to the latest version of the applications.
  • The monthly/yearly subscription fees could be cheaper (as with any subscription service).
I've (minimally) looked at LibreOffice however the integration between Outlook and Exchange makes Office the simple choice when it comes to collaboration. There is simply no other product that has the functionality of collaboration.
I would give it a full 10 out of 10 if they had given the appropriate answer to a question I asked multiple times. Other that that one issue, their support has been great and the communication/follow-up is outstanding.
