Provides for real-time and secure collaboration with coworkers

What is our primary use case?

The main reason I use this platform is to share ideas with my coworkers in a safe way and in real time. G Suite is a platform that unifies what the office requires. Email, calculator, and calendar, among others. It is also easy to implement and its performance is excellent.

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "Despite being an excellent platform, I would very much like Google Docs to be more compatible with Microsoft Word."

What other advice do I have?

I am completely satisfied with G Suite. It has a powerful set of messaging and collaboration tools comprising a range of applications. The components that I use most are its Slides presentation application, the Sheets spreadsheet editor, the Docs word processor, and the file storage platform, Drive.

More than five years.

The speed and agility of the product are its primary features

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are the speed at which G Suite Enterprise works."
  • "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."

Google Apps for Business: Useful for When Your business is Already Running

What is our primary use case?

The use case is a small business in the process of developing a content strategy for a website. A common user that is me already has a Google account, searched online for Google Apps for Business, and then decided to take advantage of the variety of resources available for the G Suite.

What other advice do I have?

I think the on-boarding could be made more efficient, but that doesn't mean more time.

Users can work anywhere with an internet connection

What is our primary use case?

Email and suite of productivity tools for business users. It can be a good alternative to MS Office 365. A lots of add-ons available to add full CRM functionality and a variety of tools to help run your business.

Pros and Cons

  • "There are several online forums and a lot of support materials online."
  • "Good performance, even on relatively slow connections; no local apps required."
  • "Users can work anywhere with an internet connection."
  • "Reduces IT spend, freeing up cash for other areas: sales, marketing, recruitment, etc."
  • "Some concerns over security, but there are moves to address this and provide admin tools to secure content and adhere to data protection regulations."

What other advice do I have?

G Suite can be an excellent solution for many organisations, but there are several factors to consider before implementing any cloud-based solutions. It is best to get expert advice before committing to any particular vendor's product suite. Whatever solution you decide on, make sure you invest in training to get the most from the products. There are no magic bullets, but well trained users will be your best business investment whatever applications you decide to use.

Excellent for Small Business, flexible, powerful, value for money.
Pros: Work on any device, with same functionality and view. True real-time collaboration. Integrated domain. Perfect for Small Business. Excellent value for money. Deployment simple and straightforward. Support is good, plenty of good forums, KBs, how to videos also. Cons: Requires internet connection. Functionality little limited, compared to offline standard competitor apps, but this is getting better. I considered Office 365, including using trial, but it lacks the flexibility and still requires purchase of local licences. Not as scalable, due to need to change from base plan to whole different plan but without migration path. GApps is totally scalable and flexible.

​There is a decent amount of information online about administering Google Apps, but more would be helpful.

What other advice do I have?

If switching, practice with one unimportant mailbox first. If you’re starting afresh, just follow the instructions.

It does the job, and it looks nice on a smartphone.
Google Apps for Business is actually pretty useful. It opens doors to new possibilities and allows you to make immediate decisions related to the needs of your business apps. I have been using Google for a while, and only lately have I begun learning more on how to integrate what I already am working on with the features of Google Drive, Google Public Data Explorer and Google Analytics.  I used it with mobile in 2013 for a few months, and it was really quick to set up. I just had to spend about a month learning the new features and then decided that perhaps I would be better off starting out with the three other apps mentioned above.

IMAP works very well -- Gmail service is dependable and inexpensive.

Valuable Features:

IMAP works very well from all environments. Service is dependable and inexpensive

Room for Improvement:

Gmail interface should be advertisement free. Web interface should also be enhanced to be more user-friendly.

It's Gmail so you know it's good. And it's free for up to 10 users.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, gmail is the best form of email out there. I've noticed that most new employees either have their own personal gmail account and need almost no training, or become converts and quickly sign up for their own Gmail account shortly after using the service at work.

Gmail for Business is a better replacement of Exchange server and is highly affordable.

What other advice do I have?

We switched our company from an Intermedia Exchange server to Gmail for Business and I am extremely happy with the results. My team adopted it very quickly, as most of them have used Gmail for personal use. I would highly recommend it to all companies.
