New independent review: How to manage Office 365 using Autopilot

30 Oct 2018 by Emma Robinson

Reviews are really great. It doesn’t matter whether it’s for a restaurant, holiday location, the latest tech, or a new book, the early stages of thorough research should always include a gander at, (or more often, a 5-page trawl of) the reviews of said item/experience/offering. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has checked the reviews after receiving an item that wasn’t quite up to scratch, only to immediately find my exact feelings and complaints multiplied by voices neatly stacked one on top of the other. If you’ve never experienced that, I can tell you, it’s not a good feeling.

As a side note: reviews can also provide a great source of humor, as highlighted so brilliantly here.

Technology adoption is all about trusted reviews

Technology and all its bewildering advancements can leave people feeling like they need to reach out for experience, expertise, or guidance. This means you can find reviews everywhere, in a wide range of shapes and sizes. It could be an expert leading a session on a problem, demonstrating a solution that they’ve used successfully. Maybe it’s an unknown face behind a screen, answering your call for help, recommending a technique or approach on a forum or technical community. Perhaps it’s someone you end up having a beer with during the happy hour of a conference.

Our latest Office 365 management tool Autopilot is an exciting addition to our solution set, largely because its current (and potential) capabilities are extremely far-reaching. When we were developing it, we worked with Microsoft MVPs, experts in administration, and people who are actually doing the job we intend to make easier.

Our new Autopilot review

I could carry on about Autopilot, and how it could revolutionize the way that you manage Office 365, whether that’s one tenant or ten, but I won’t. Instead, I encourage you not to take our word for it, but to do your research, starting with the reviews.

A great place to start is our new technical assessment of Autopilot, written by Dominik Hoefling, Microsoft MVP for Office 365 Apps and Services. The document walks you through everything from set up, to key features and configurations, with practical guidance and real-life applications at the forefront.
