Cons
Despite being an excellent platform, I would very much like Google Docs to be more compatible with Microsoft Word.It takes a long time to import the data from G Suite into another platform.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.The performance speed could be improved when the internet connection is slow.Some concerns over security, but there are moves to address this and provide admin tools to secure content and adhere to data protection regulations.

I would like to let new users know that there are challenges regarding user provisioning, HRMS and the AD. Also, the data migration integrity needs to be checked in terms of the old data.I have found that Microsoft has vulnerabilities when it comes to Exchange Online. It has become the port of a lot of hacker attacks.I think there should be an incorporation of DLP on the business premium version of Exchange, as well.Migration can be an issue if you do not have a good audit process.Functionality wise, I can't really say it's improved from Exchange Online, I think it's not so much change on-premise. It's about the same. Other than that, it's the extra features that make a difference, reallyWhen initially setting up, it took a bit of time because we had a lot of PST files with the users, and we had to migrate them batch by batch.Also, I think the mobile app on the forms you can improve a little bit more.In terms of machine controls, it was very confusing, and some of the administrative parts will be done from the control, but in online writing mostly we can handle everything.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price per client within the business is too high.The pricing is a bit on the higher side than normal. For a basic Google account it costs $100, but Enterprise is %150.We receive value for the price that we pay.G Suite and Microsoft Office 365 offer products with similar functionality at several different price points. Zoho offer a more extensive range of products and attempts to provide all the applications required to run most small and medium-sized businesses.Careful consideration should be given to the different licensing options and provisions should be made for additional applications that may be required for your particular business.Traffic management tools may be required for larger setups and should be included in any pricing calculations.There are several areas where a G Suite implementation can reduce costs: lower license fees than some competing products, reduced hardware, and IT support costs.There are benefits that can provide a competitive advantage, e.g., improved productivity (with appropriate training), increased collaboration (with correct use of tools), flexible working - work from home or remote locations, easy to scale - fast onboarding of new employees, and ability to add and remove licenses, as required.

The pricing is a bit more expensive than other solutions.We have a license per user scenario.The price is a bit high. It is especially expensive in the Indian market.I think it's just awesome. There's no argument about how much value you get on the per user, for user expenditure. It's really great, I don't have any issues with it. I think it's excellent.In my opinion, the online license is the best one we have. It is a bundle that we have from Microsoft. It is a bit high in price.It is a reasonable solution.Initially, we had issues with the licensing agreement, but we worked it out with Microsoft.I have no opinion.
