Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The first thing that we liked about this solution is that administrators do not have access to private folders."
"The application is very light in terms of uploading and downloading files."
"The interface is very good."
"Box is very user-friendly; more so than SharePoint."
"The most valuable features are the speed at which G Suite Enterprise works."
"The security and privacy policies of G Suite make it efficient, and the organizational data is secure."
"G Suite is a powerful suite of tools for messaging and collaboration that has met the fundamental needs of my company, both increasing productivity and reducing costs."
"I use Keep to assign tasks to a team of programmers, which is very easy."
"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."
"I would like to see improvements made in the ability to integrate with other online sharing systems."
"Better integration with other solutions is needed."
"The integration with other products should be improved."
"The UI should be faster. Sometimes it lags when switching between documents."
"I have had issues with my Google Address Book. I have an address book and it is available to everyone, but I cannot add additional users. In Microsoft Outlook, I could easily share certain contacts with other members of my team, but I cannot do so on G Suite."
"It takes a long time to import the data from G Suite into another platform."
"Despite being an excellent platform, I would very much like Google Docs to be more compatible with Microsoft Word."
"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."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing of this solution is better than Dropbox."
"I believe Box is cheaper than SharePoint."
"The pricing is a bit on the higher side than normal. For a basic Google account it costs $100, but Enterprise is %150."
"The price per client within the business is too high."
"It's about $8.30 up a user per month."
"2,500 Rupees per month per user."
