On a scale from one to ten, I would give G Suite Enterprise an eight.

We're a Google partner and we sell to our customers G Suite, or Google Works as it is called now. That's what we do. We're are also a Microsoft partner. We do a lot with Dynamics, Navision Microsoft Dynamics, and we're also a reseller of Microsoft 365. We do backup and disaster recovery in partnership with N‑able. All these things, we do as an MSP. We do remote monitoring as a platform solution where you buy the agents and you do your own management or we do it as an MSP where we do 24/7 management, for instance, of your server monitoring. We are a managed service provider or a total IT service provider to the market. We do a variety of solutions, primarily for SMEs.

G Suite Enterprise is a good option for startups. It's low in cost as compared to Office 365, and there is no difference. They are almost equal to each other if we keep performance aside, and it's a stable product. So, I recommend this product for startups and would rate it at eight on a scale from one to ten.

This is a good product, it is really scalable, and I definitely recommend it. This is a really good investment and there are many features that we have not yet exploited. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

From information security, that is, confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) as well as stability and reliability point of view, G Suite is the product to go for. I would rate G Suite Enterprise a nine out of ten.

I would rate it an eight out of ten. Google is trying to implement a telephone system on top of it. I would say, wait and see, because that's a new product, and wait and see if it's going to work and if it's going to cause you problems.

We're just customers; we don't have a business relationship with Google. There's always going to be a decision to either go with a G Suite, Microsoft Office, or some other open-source platform like Open Office. I would suggest G Suite to someone who's considering making a move, especially if they are a new enterprise. They need to consider carefully who they're going to be interacting with in terms of clients. Does it make sense for them to pay the premium price and go to the Microsoft Suite because of the nature of the work they're doing? It depends on the situation. If I was doing a lot of legal work with a lot of documentation back and forth, I wouldn't even think twice. I'd only use Microsoft. However, if I'm doing a lot of other sorts of work where I need to have collaboration, I would hands down choose G Suite. If I'm not worried about collaboration and I just want cheap and cheerful, I would probably go to Open Office. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

They are always ahead of the competition, there is not much to improve as long as they keep maintaining the same momentum. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Individuals need to explore the options based on their business needs. G Suite has building forms, online forms, reports, everything like that. It's just a matter of exploring it and understanding your requirements. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10. It still requirements some improvements in order to catch up to Microsoft.

I'm just a customer. I'm not sure of the version I'm currently using. I just use the business G Suite. I believe it's always the latest version that's available. The only thing I use in G Suite is Gmail, Drive and the Calendar and that's about it. I'm not really using Google Ads. I do a little bit of YouTube stuff, but I'm fixing to convert that into putting the videos on my website. I just recently also used Google Voice. In terms of advice to other companies, I'd caution that it's very difficult to use effectively. Users need to really make sure they're going to have to be able to vertically integrate it. If you're using Microsoft Office and Google together, you might want to just consider how to stay within the Microsoft Office platform. If you're going to use Google, you need to consider how you integrate that entirely inside your business. I would rate the solution five out of ten. There's a lot of opportunity in Google, however, their biggest two problems are that they don't do a very good job of protecting the privacy of the individual that's using G Suite, and it needs to be more intuitive and easier to implement.

There's always room for improvement but it works fairly well for what we need. The conference systems can always be improved of course, but it works quite well for most of the functions we use. Obviously, it's not perfect. Everything can always be better of course, but we are quite satisfied with it. There is a cost per user, per month. It depends on how many users they have in the system. It's a decent cost anyway. It feels quite okay for what we get for it. It's simple and easy to get working and started. You don't really need to locally install stuff, you have the browser and that's it. It's easy to set up and it's fairly flexible. There are a lot of apps in it like Meet or collaboration tools. It works well and we have been using it daily. It seems to be a robust and working system. We are quite happy with it. I would recommend it. I would rate it an eight out of ten. We haven't had any main problems with it. It's more like it could be hard sometimes to find your way through all the settings and using things like that. It's a flexible system, in general it's hassle-free. 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.

I would recommend any company carry out a good profiling of the people who are going to be migrated to the solution, and to implement a good change management adoption in order to have everyone on board. If you do this you have satisfied users and they are the ones who are going to rely on the tool and get all the advantages the tool provides. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

If you need basic functionality in a very mobile or dispersed workforce, it works great. When we didn't use Enterprise, it became time-consuming and complicated to manage. Sometimes you step up a tier just to be able to manage it more effectively. I would rate it an eight out of ten. I think it's a good, solid product for basic functionality. It's easy to roll out, it's easy to use in a very distributed workforce until you get to the level where you need very specific things, it's great. Once you get to that, I need some specific functionality like in Excel, it doesn't offer that kind of advanced feature set. So it's the only reason it wouldn't go higher and also because of some of the complications. But it doesn't have an advanced feature set.

The solution is on Google's public cloud. Currently, the solution is serving its purpose and I don't know if there are any enhancements needed. I'd rate it nine out of ten.

Many people don't understand that when you are migrating to a company, you don't need to use software for mail, and you don't need to have software to open Gmail. It's the main feature. For me, this solution and the setup is easy, but for some people who do not have the experience, they see features and don't know what they are used for. For the Cloud, people are using Active Directory or Outlook, but they should also consider Gmail. As an administrator, you don't have to manage mail software and local mail storage. When people are using Office 365 Suites online and they come from Outlook to the online version, they don't like it. Gmail is made specifically to be used through a web browser. For some people, it's a con, but for me, it's a pro. In France, many people are using old products and they have to use Microsoft Office, but for new companies, they are using new online modern software. When I meet with some of these companies, I push them toward using G Suite and Gmail. Microsoft was the top in IT, and they were beaten by Okta with regards to the single sign-on, and Gmail could do a single-sign-on earlier than Microsoft. I would recommend this product. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

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.
