Must have for business collaboration!

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to sync information across all devices. Along with all Microsoft products, you only need to remember one set of account information (username & password).

What do you dislike?

The calendars can be a bit frustrating as they use two separate, unlinked calendar applications. The navigation was a bit confusing at times, and our office had to have several information sessions teaching everyone how to use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is a steep learning curve and the features are very exclusive to Internet Explorer. This may lead to some confusion with Mac users and collaborators.

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

We are using the program on a daily basis. The email system is great, and allows sending group emails to be quick and easy. We have found that the online PowerPoint option has allowed multiple people to work on the same presentation at once, which has solved many of the technical woes we experienced with Google Slides.

Great mail services

What do you like best?

Very easy to use, can access from any machine. Compatible with most if not all smart phones that I have seen it used with. Good calendar functionality that synchs up well with mail - much better than other email programs I've used.

What do you dislike?

Not being able to change the format of an email you are responding to say from basic text to a higher quality file that lets you change font colors, etc. Also need special permissions in order to change some settings, such as adding a profile picture.

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

Email, calendar function / meeting organization.

Microsoft live is a good concept to think

What do you like best?

Microsoft live is a good ideology in which the team came up with the concept of bringing all the online web services under one layer and provide the users with all the benefits of online applications and connecting users under one roof. The flexibility offered by the live products is good. The user interface is stupendous and cannot be comparable with any other products. Live team did a wonderful job in this.

What do you dislike?

Windows live has some concerns with the security standards and the same concerns me about this product. The so mentioned security features with the product seem to be suffice, but with the emerging breaches they same to be worth worry. Apart from the above else should be wonderful in terms of the product features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best features will be best till few days. So need to come up with the bright ideas of improvising them.

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

All the application are available under one roof for serving the PC needs.

What do you dislike?

Way too much SPAM, there has got to be a way to exclude the Viagra and Asian Brides

Recommendations to others considering the product

Works quite well when you drink the full Microsoft Office/Cloud Kool-Aid Cocktail

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

Not used for business, just me a person using it to manage my personal email. Ties in very nicely to my SkyDrive/OneDrive account.
