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

Pros
The Hangouts feature is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us.G Suite and all of Google were the first to have a built-in multifactor authentication without needing to purchase another product.I use Keep to assign tasks to a team of programmers, which is very easy.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.The security and privacy policies of G Suite make it efficient, and the organizational data is secure.The most valuable features are the speed at which G Suite Enterprise works.A complete integrated environment for our business. I get Google docs, Gmail, online space, and calendar where I can easily perform all documentation, storage, and communications online.Google Apps for Business and Skype for Business are the perfect solutions for every business thriving online.

Cons
The user interface, especially on Google Drive, could be better.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.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.

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.
