We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We use Google Sheets extensively for things like sharing plans, data, test reports, and more."
"The solution is very stable."
"The general ease of use is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's extremely simple to use. You don't even have to look up videos in order to figure things out. It's all very intuitive."
"personally prefer to use G Suite applications, such as Gmail, Slides, and Sheets, because they give you the freedom to share the document you're editing and co-work with other colleagues simultaneously."
"Extremely reliable, providing great collaboration features."
"The solution is stable."
"It is a stable platform. It is very easy to use, and most importantly, it is very easy to administer. It also gets up and running quite easily."
"The valuable features of this solution are ease of use, performance is great, and collaboration. It is very easy to share and joins documents."
"HCL Verse has a nice interface and it is a practical email solution. There are a diverse set of features, such as the search bar on top of the screens."
"Google Meet can have a bit more functionality. It should show the views of more people. Right now, it shows just eight at a maximum, or six. When there are more people on the call, more than eight, everyone is not showing."
"The solution could improve the Google Cloud identity login to laptops that sometimes do not work. The collaboration for Google sites, they are not equivalent to others, such as Sharepoint."
"They could increase the number of third-party integrations on offer."
"I found that there is no desktop application for this solution, and that's a major fault of this application."
"The synchronization is a bit of an issue."
"We've had difficulty using PowerPoint files in G Suite. PowerPoint has some functions that are not available in G Suite, so when you convert from PPTX to the Slides format, they don't work."
"Scalability is not as good as we would like."
"There could be more options in Google G Suite. They can include HD calling for Google Meet. The layout portion in the calendar for Google G Suite can be better designed. When we get into the calendar and start scheduling meetings, we do have few hiccups here and there. The layout can be a little easier. People from different backgrounds are finding it a little bit tough to understand. It should be more intuitive. At the moment, it has a completely white background. To do power saving, it would be good if they can release a darker background. There are a few issues with the formatting of Google Docs when they get converted to Microsoft docs. It would be amazing if they can resolve it in the next release."
"The solution could improve by allowing us to use a color that we want in the editing boxes."
"The main challenge regarding startups with identity services is you could be on a platform that works well but the services are expensive. For example, Microsoft Azure costs approximately $30 per user which is expensive. You end up choosing a different platform, such as G Suite Enterprise because it is priced reasonably and is less expensive than other solutions."
"We normally purchase the license on a yearly basis."
"The pricing is very high, although I cannot tell if this is the result of the Indian vendors artificially inflating it."
"It's low in cost as compared to Office 365. There is an annual licensing cost."
"Approximately $6 per user, per month."
"Licensing costs are on a yearly basis."
"We pay a monthly subscription for the use of this solution."
"It's about $8.30 up a user per month."
"The price of the solution is reasonable."
