  • The proofing process for each project has required less time on our end.
  • We haven't needed to rely so heavily on the use of a vpn since all documents can be accessed on here (when utilized).
  • Employees have spent less time waiting for revisions or edits, resulting in a better use of time in the office or at home.

  • It helped organization to reduce hardware costs.
  • Securing hard drives of important documents was difficult, now this problem is solved by drive.
  • Sharing the files over email was causing problems hence read-only sharing was used to protect the documents and share them as well.

  • 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!

  • I cannot use this service for my laptop device for more than 3 months, while I am paying for the services.
  • Bad support service is just distracting me from the real work I should be doing. Wasting my time.
  • The fact that my files are not being synced is making me uneasy and I am concerned about if I have proper backups for my work.

  • Google drive has definitely helped the organization grow a lot and we have saved tremendously on manpower because of the easy-to-use storage solutions.
  • We have gotten a 120% ROI in the last quarter because of Google Drive's extensive use and we cannot imagine our business model without a drive
  • Negative: Because of the large file size storage sometimes, it tends to get slow which resulted in a lot of systems downtime in the org.

  • When Google Drive is suitable for certain document writing, our time to publish is reduced significantly. Instead of sending files back and forth on an antiquated technical writing platform, it's so much quicker to be in the document at the same time.
  • If we could only effectively write technical documents in Google Drive, it would positively impact our ROI.

  • Google drive saves almost a day in my doc collection process
  • My HR team can sort date-wise applicants instantly. Which needs another person otherwise.
  • Control over permission means non-management people can't tinker with your data or formatting other than viewing
