Great Example of a Multi-Functional Solution  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-06-27

 Pros

I’ve been using SharePoint for many years and Microsoft continues to expand and simplify its offerings. We’ve been using SharePoint Online for the past several years and it has made a difference how our organization manages our business; from search, documents, collaboration, commmunication and integration with the suite of Office products.

 Cons

Not many since it is intuitive from a user standpoint however a bit of a learning curve for administrators to ensure proper compliance and security.

 Pros

Microsoft continues to invest in this platform providing a significant tool that our organization uses to manage our business; from virtualization to backups to app development, it provides the place for IT to help build out solutions to the rest of the organization.

 Cons

As typical with Microsoft the fee schemes change dependent upon competitors and future enhancements which do raise eyebrows however considering this space not surprising.

Best ITIL Help Desk Tool on the Market  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-06-27

 Pros

We evaluated several products however this one had it all. It was easy to purchase, configure and implement. Has great reporting features and dashboards.

Additional cost for extended business reporting however it might be worth it down the road as you collect more data and implement more ITIL functionality.

Skype Reviews
Multi-channel communications software

Excellent Way to Stay in Touch....  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-06-27

 Pros

There are so many reasons to appreciate Skype for Business; the intergration with Outlook, scheduling capabilities, prescense features, video and call features, ability to present and connect with all in and out fo the organization.

 Cons

Well if I had to have one con it would be that it only supports up to 10,000 users... otherwise it does as advertised.

Brilliant Tool for Graphic Illustration  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-06-26

 Pros

My go-to tool for building graphic illustrations to guide users and provide insight with thoughtful ideas. Easy to use and has an abundance of functionality so you can pretty much accomplish anything.

 Cons

It can be a bit of a resource hog so be prepared to just focus on the task at hand however it will allow some lightweight apps to run alongside.

Microsoft Outlook Reviews
Email & calendar software

Outstanding Value for Email  starstarstarstarstar_border  2018-06-26

 Pros

Microsoft has done a swell job of making it easy to use email, providing tools which are intuitive to use and get the job done. The interface with swipe right or left funcationality, focused email, powerful search and calendaring make it my go to tool.

 Cons

As Microsoft often does, make changes to their product without warning or insight. In the pace to keep their product relevant it happens, doesn’t prevent using it however it is irksome.
