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."

"It is easy to use and we can allow many users because now our users are scattered They over a wide area. We can use it from anywhere. That is the main benefit for us.""It is a product that is simple to manage, and easy to use.""It's so much of a part of what I do every day that I don't give it a lot of thought. It just works, for the most part, until it doesn't, in which case I call tech support.""Now, we manage to serve almost 99% of the information.""It is very well integrated with other Microsoft programs, teams, and so on. They work well together.""The initial setup is very simple."

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."

"In terms of probability, every now and then there are changes coming and going. The changes are not that frequent because every month they got updates back, so that is an issue.""I think that improvements should be made in creating greater abilities for Microsoft Exchange in terms of Reasearch and Development.""Exchange can be a little finicky, sometimes, or flakey. Last week, for example, I had gone into my calendar to check on some briefings that I had established, and then went back into my inbox, and suddenly the view had changed. I had no idea what it was that I had done, and I couldn't figure out how to get that view back. I took a productivity hit as a result of that, trying to fix it, due to the fact that it just wasn't what I wanted. It wasn't what I was used to working with. Two different tech support people had to work with me in order to get the view back to what I wanted just so I could be productive.""When we started using Exchange on the cloud, we had a lot of initial problems relating to our main database and we also experienced issues with the accidental deletion of inboxes, amongst other things. In fact, many of the files we had moved to the cloud had disappeared. There also seems to be a problem with the retention of information.""It's not always the finest solution in terms of integration with products that are not from Microsoft. It integrates very well with Microsoft products but not with third-party products.""In the version we have, I would like to see better communication between the end device and the Exchange server."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

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.
