Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

Cons
"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."

"Notes needs a major upgrade for the UI.""It is a heavy program and uses more resources than an email client should.""There is a chat component but it does not work properly."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The Hangouts feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us.
Top Answer: The Google Slides should be able to be available in a "read-only" format, even if they are downloaded. Currently, when you share a slide, it can be edited or even downloaded and edited. We'd prefer it… more »
Top Answer: I deployed this for a public administration with two hundred accounts. They were replacing Office 365 with this solution because of the price.
