I’ve been relying on the #Office365 Midsize Business subscription for just over a year now. After a baker’s dozen of months, I thought it would be a good time to review the good and bad of this service, especially for those of you considering jumping into the Office 365 ecosystem. Before I get started, let’s set the stage. First, and most important, you should know I pay for my own subscription. I didn’t get any “press favors” with this thing. I signed up like a regular business customer and pay for it like a regular business customer. With subscriptions for […]
