OFFICE 365 NEEDS
Office 365 is a great product but it does not offer the reporting and easy management that we need to support our members without going too deep into the technical details. We were searching for a solution with the following goals in mind:
- Single, complete solution with fast reporting and an easy-to-use management console
- Efficient reporting tool with both a global vision and details at the user level
- Management of advanced features without the knowledge of PowerShell
- Mobile devices
- Licenses used
- Overall services consumption
Introducing 4ward allowed us to have a clear view on real usage of Office 365 services in the blink of an eye.
It allows us to check real usage statistics of Office 365 in order to evaluate the activity trends of our users and understand if the licensing is adequate. Moreover, we have a better picture on the real consumption of the Office 365 services we are paying for, and this is really helpful because we can drive it user by user and help our members to achieve higher productivity, while optimizing costs.
4ward365 lets you forget the management console of Office 365 and have a totally efficient reporting service. The product is continuously updated with new features, and we no longer need to become PowerShell experts. That’s one less problem to worry about.
“PowerShell is not needed anymore. One less problem to worry about.”
