Amazon Chime

Amazon Chime is a superior alternative to other free video conference/conference call programs. The call and video quality are great, and you can have multiple participants on both video and call. It's well suited for an organization that wants an affordable option for video and conference calls, but may not be appropriate for organizations with limited budgets or those who do very little conferencing.

Google Drive is perfect for team projects and as a cloud if you want to access your files from any computer or device. You do have to make sure to sign in to your account to access if the device you're on doesn't have the app downloaded to it. I wouldn't suggest using Google Drive if you're not on one of your main devices (i.e. on a public computer).

Pros

Amazon Chime

  • The screen sharing aspect of Chime is very useful when attempting to demonstrate functionality to our remote users.
  • Using Chime as an instant messaging app between our workforce is extremely helpful.
  • It is quite simple to send an invite and have Outlook manage the appointment. Then Chime automatically calls you when the appointment is about to start.

Cons

Amazon Chime

  • Sometimes it's a little too basic and simple
  • I've come across multiple times where notifications won't go away even after viewing all unread messages
  • Requires a lot of updates

Google Drive

  • There is a big problem when you share a document within a group of people and that is that anyone who have accces to the document can erase without any warning to the other members of the group, this can be very dangerous if you have problems in your teamwork and someone wants to sabotage the job.
  • Google Drive unlike gmail and another apps has no opportunity to use without internet connection, that means that you do not have the opportunity to work or consult a document if your internet connection it is down or it is unstable.
  • Google Drive only offers a limited number of free gygabytes of storage, if you manage big files like music or videos you can have some trouble because if you do not want to pay for the premium version, you have to constantly erase your files every time you need to put new ones on the app.

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.

While I might feel like the phone is too small to use to create content, they have done a great job in creating a UI / UX that doesn't prohibit you from creating that content on your phone. On a full blown desktop they have done a great job in creating a suite of office tools that can compete with Microsofts' Office suite. While saying that I do think it's fair to point out that Excel will still knock the socks off of a Google Sheet, due to the fact that it's running in a browser.

Its surprising features always amaze me and make me use Google Drive. There is one [benefit] that is more of a neat feature than a benefit, but it’s still worth mentioning. Google Drive’s image recognition technology can easily recognize the content of my pictures. For instance, if I have visited a famous landmark on a recent vacation and upload my photo in front of it, the picture comes up when one searches for that landmark using Google Drive’s search.

Some customer service reps are great, but I find the majority are not really giving you service, they are not solving the problems and issues can go on for weeks. It is very frustrating and has made me question my decision to stay with them. Once again, there are some great ones that actually follow up when they say they will and have concrete answers, even if they say they are still researching, at least I know someone is on it.

Plain and simple, it's free and easy to use. After several years of using it, I've never encountered a problem. I've recommended using Google Drive to several other local businesses and they've had success with it as well. The convenience of being able to access it from any device at any time makes it incredibly convenient for those of us that bounce between locations.

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

Amazon Chime

Amazon Chime WILL become an industry leader. Amazon is still behind WebEx and is gaining ground on Microsoft. The advantage Microsoft will have is the ability to embed in organizations through Office, and have that advantage over WebEx as well. We selected Amazon Chime as another platform because it aided in our support from the AWS Web Services Support Team.

Having the ability to create, edit, and collaborate in a real time environment is hands down what set Google Drive above all the competitors for my business. I have stored files in Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, Copy, and even MediaFire. Once I was set on Google Drive, I increased my storage plan and migrated all files into one source and it has been so efficient!

Return on Investment

  • We use the free version, and we benefit from better access to discussions with prospective hires which can lead to increase win percentage.

  • I would definitely say Google drive has been crucial for many of the businesses I’ve been a part of. There’s no other collaboration system that works quite as well or is as easy to learn and use as Google drive. Plus, it helps that Google is an empire when it comes to platforms such as this; it makes syncing a breeze.
