We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution is great for inviting and sharing documents with other users."
"G Suite and all of Google were the first to have a built-in multifactor authentication without needing to purchase another product."
"The Hangouts feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us."
"It's certainly easier to meet. We have offices around the world and the ability to have a company meeting on Google Meet platform makes it a whole lot easier to actually have everybody virtually in one room at the same time."
"Ability to co-edit and collaborate on content."
"The features we use quite a lot are the mail and Google Drive. We can store documents and share documents between both employees here, locally in Sweden, and we have an office in the US as well. It's a very easy way to share information and documents, and have online meetings and stuff with Google Meet. We use it quite a lot."
"In terms of email, I could probably do the same things with other programs, however, I find 90% of my usage is Gmail."
"The most valuable feature is that it is simple to use."
"It's a secure solution that enables you to choose those you wish to share with."
"I had a very bitter experience with their mobile app."
"If you use a name with a special character like a slash in the folder, it will crash the migration, with no warning. There is no pre-warning or anything to tell you that if you use characters in a file name that it will crash the migration."
"The user interface, especially on Google Drive, could be better."
"Their tool called Sheets is the counterpart to Excel but it doesn't have the same functionality that Excel would have. So usually if somebody needs to go back to Excel or Office, it's because of Excel."
"Not all tools are available in the one facility."
"In the next release, I would like to see more encryption of documents, mail, and things like that. There should be a better way to encrypt mail and documents that are pushed through this system. That would be some improvement or additional features that could be good to have."
"The solution is not user-friendly and it doesn't integrate that well with Microsoft Office, which is one of the bigger business apps on the market, compared to Google Sheets and applications of that sort."
"The price could be reduced."
"Less customizations than there used to be."
"It's cheaper compared to similar products available"
"It's about $8.30 up a user per month."
"2,500 Rupees per month per user."
"Licensing costs are on a yearly basis."
"We normally purchase the license on a yearly basis."
"It's low in cost as compared to Office 365. There is an annual licensing cost."
"We pay a monthly subscription for the use of this solution."
"The pricing is very high, although I cannot tell if this is the result of the Indian vendors artificially inflating it."
"Approximately $6 per user, per month."
