We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The user interface is good."
"The most valuable features are its ease of use, excellent pricing, and it is platform agnostic."
"Kerio Connect is secure, flexible, and easy to control from the user interface. It has many security features able to be controlled from one place, such as anti-spam. I have found it very convenient. Additionally, you can analyze log files and share folders which is helpful."
"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."
"Most of our clients use Outlook and Kerio Connect. Occasionally, Kerio can be a bit slow. They could make it faster to get onto the web interface without so much load time. It's just slow with Outlook, however, for some reason."
"I would like to see better support from their support team."
"The solution could improve the redundancy because we only have one copy of the Kerio Connect server on our hardware. The next step for us is to move to the cloud and if Kerio does not have a cloud version available they should release one"
"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."
"The pricing is about $3 per mailbox per month."
"The price of Kerio Connect is better when comparing it to others solutions."

A big benefit of Google Apps for Business is that all products can be accessed using one Google log-in for each user, so only a single account set-up per user is required.
