More HCL Verse Pros →

"Exchange Online is a straightforward cloud-based application. It's easy to connect and the interface is user friendly.""The online version is faster, as it is a cloud instance. We can have massive mailbox capacity: 100 GB per user, which is huge. We can't provision such capacity internally, as the company would get burnt out paying for mailbox storage.""It is for emails, and it seems to work okay.""The solution is easy to use and the cloud version has taken a lot of challenges away from the user.""It allows us to work from home, at any time or anywhere.""All of the Microsoft Exchange Online is very useful, such as the sections, the information protection, and the mail flows.""The solution is stable.""The solution offers complete scalability and flexibility."

Cons
"The solution could improve by allowing us to use a color that we want in the editing boxes."

More HCL Verse Cons →

"The integration could be better if it could integrate well with other products and software.""I don't like it in general. It sort of has that Microsoft flavor to it, which is just the style they use and the way they color things and lay them out.""The solution should have a stand-alone application instead of us having to go through an internet browser.""The solution could improve by making the user interface better.""This product is too complex to use.""I would prefer an anti-malware functionality in at least the basic version.""The solution should have more integration with other platforms.""The licensing price of the solution could be lower."
