Pros

Very positive experience - any successful business would find significant efficiencies and opportunities by moving to 365.
I love how secure the platform is, the software is easy to navigate. I love the fact that it is accessable worldwide.
We utilize all that the product has to offer on a daily basis and are quite happy with the product. It helps us manage our business better and provides the tools necessary to communicate effectively.

Pros

Great training sessions, flexible to our needs and great customer support. Only great things to say about this company.
I love that our organization uses this software as a tool for us to submit innovative ideas to improve our experiences and processes.
Their onboarding team was great in explaining how everything worked. Plus the ability to save the webexes for future use helped a lot.

Cons

This is the sort of thing the hard drive resident application never struggled with. Conditional formatting layered up is the sort of thing that causes problems.
Sometimes i get logged out and have trouble logging back in. This is very rare but can be confusing and upsetting as everything is on there.
I hate, hate, hate, hate the fact that you cannot install each app on its own. It is pointless to force people who only need Excel or Word to install EVERYTHING.

Cons

Lack of mobile app development, slow development of product enhancements, lack of local (i.e. outside of USA) hosting options to reduce latency.
One issue we ran into was the inability to backdate projects.
The inability for Boolean logic in the rules engine is somewhat annoying but manageable.
