    12d Synergy and its ability to handle all file types really suited the engineering industry.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Drive for us has suited well, especially for storage solutions. It is a great source of safely storing your important files and folders online. Of course, there is a hesitation to save business-critical files in Google Drive due to fears of security or hacking. However, overall I would say Google Drive has remained relevant for a long period of time now. It reinvents itself from time to time.

    Pros

    12d Synergy

    • Manages multiple files in a folder, while allowing file sharing (AutoCAD, xrefs, etc.)
    • Delivers HUGE (2, 3, or 5GB) files with minimal bandwidth
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Drive

    • Any user with access can store a file using different platforms like Android, IOS, Windows, or Ubuntu (Desktop version)
    • You can share files with any number of different users with different access rights or you can even keep it public by providing the access link and assign different rights for public access
    • You can open Excel/Word files using google software Sheets/Docs in the browser environment without having to install software like Microsoft Office etc on your Windows OS

    Cons

    12d Synergy

    • 12d Synergy could provide additional analytical reporting on user behavior and usage out of the box.
    • Improved speeds when referencing shared files from other 12d model projects.
    Travis March | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Drive

    • Having a little bit more control and clarity over what is shared and how it is shared would be a useful improvement.
    • Could be more robust and flexible as far as assigning restrictions.
    • Google Sheets could be enhanced because Excel really is not there yet as a product with equal capabilities as there are still quite a few limitations to the functionality.

    For its compatibility, easiness, quick responses, user interface, storage capacity, files management and file listings. These are some of the reasons for giving higher ratings and Google Drive has become an integral part of my professional life. We use this software on daily basis and most of the time saving lot of time.

    It is the company's primary cloud storage facility. It overcomes communication issues, serves as an information wall, and stores sensitive data for several accounts managed by admin users. It has a wide range of applications: mechanics use it to store installation guidelines, offices use it to store sensitive data, and salespeople use it to store client personal information.

    The documents load fairly quickly and also update in real time, especially given the fact that multiple people can be using it at once. The "Offline" feature works great to allow the user to make edits and access the document without access to the internet, and then sync changes later once they're back.

    I cannot really speak to the overall support for Google Drive since I've never had to call on support from the team at Google. That said, I'm sure any problems that come up would be easy to solve by talking to the team or even just looking up the answer on Google search.

    The effective google workspace using training that my organization received and was conducted by me (as a team lead of the ICT team) was mind-blowing and as a result, our staff is performing well in terms of using the application for their daily jobs than before. Now, in my institution, all teachers and all the administrative personnel are very much interested in cloud storage facilities, in previous my institution was afraid of losing all important documents in the cloud storage. But, after having received the training they are now realized that if anyone has only one google account then he or she can use 15GB of cloud storage freely and they are now happy because now it is not necessary for anyone to carry the traditional pen drive.

    It's an extremely easy software to implement, once you sign up for a google account you automatically have access to google drive with a set amount of storage space. The business or Google Suite accounts have more storage space than a regular free account, but setting up and accessing google drive is very easy in both cases

    Alternatives Considered

    12d Synergy

    Hands down prefer 12d Synergy. Bentley ProjectWise is overly complex, expensive and has a very cluttered interface.

    Google Drive's major competitor is Microsoft OneDrive. Though there are a few differences, the services are essentially identical in terms of functionality. While Microsoft's free users have access to more powerful productivity apps and sharing opportunities, Google offers more initial free storage. As a result, Google is the most cost-effective option.

    Return on Investment

    12d Synergy

    • 12d Synergy has solved our multiple office syncing issues, adding the ability to have staff from remote offices collaborate together on projects.
    • Email saving used to be a nightmare, however, staff finds 12d Synergy's email saving easy to use and are able to search for saved emails quickly.

    • It is best to use if your university has partnered with Google. Unlimited Cloud Storage plus simplicity is evert student's dream!
    • It would be good, though, if Google would partner with other companies to be able to support/run other file types.
    • It is not pricey for all it's worth!
