    Chanty is very good for networking messaging and low level collaboration between peers and colleagues. It's not great for video or voice calls or whiteboarding or file sharing.
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Drive works wonders as a cloud storage tool for simple to medium complex projects. It allows any digital operation to grow remote and adds remote capabilities to collaborating on digital projects. For a small-medium operation, is an affordable option only bested by a NAS or any other kind of physical on-site storage solution. UI/UX is easy to understand and there's a very short learning curve to it. For bigger or multi-format operations where complex software files are to be used, I'd advise exploring more specific options.

    Pros

    Chanty

    • Notifications
    • App loading speed
    Marc Duke | 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

    Chanty

    • Ability to call group members
    • Ability to video members
    Marc Duke | 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 have been sent quite a few emails about functionality and support on a pretty regular basis, which is great. I have not had any need to contact support as the platform is pretty simple to use, it was easy to download and install and I have not encountered any bugs or other issues so far.

    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

    Chanty

    In terms of file sharing and speed of collaboration, I find that Slack is quicker and integration into Google Drive is very handy when it comes to working on documents, I have not seen Chanty do this. As for video Google Hangouts is as simple as it gets; again, I have not seen anything from Chanty in this area. I have also looked at and use https://guild.co/ which is much easier messaging and collaboration wise. The app and notification for Chanty is pretty good but it's loading time is slower compared to Slack and WhatsApp.

    Google Drive was the 1st Product that I evaluated of its kind about 15 years ago. I used it then and I still use it. You do not require anything else. It is flexible, easy to use, and accessible. It also gives you a very decent space of 15 GB free of charge. Who needs anything else?

    • 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!
