Overall Satisfaction with G Suite

I am currently using G Suite and applications to communicate and manage projects between my internal and external clients. I adopted the email client instead of using the C-Panel option and use Drive to collaborate on projects that need to be managed and edited live. G Suite made working on the go easy: we can now log in to the email wherever we go, as long as we have access to the Internet! Everything is right where we left off and we take advantage of greater security through Google. Two-step verification is very nice to have. The collaboration between Google Docs and Google Sheets is excellent! Several people can work on one document or spreadsheet at the same time! The chat (Hangouts) is also great: instead of sending an email, you can chat with someone and get a quick response. Google Drive also makes it easy to share files! And if you make a big mistake in a document, you can go back to an earlier version with that tool as well.

Pros

  • The email client is incredibly thorough. Users can configure aliases, organize stored responses and create folders for continuous communications both internally and externally. Google Drive offers users the opportunity to create and share project documents, private links and presentations, all with the click of a button.
  • It just works. The G Suite email is one of the best investment you can do for your company. You don't have to deal with spam emails anymore and you can get rid of the "Promotions" tab as well.
  • Greater communication / faster, better collaboration and access to everything while traveling are huge advantages. G Suite continues to provide the market leading experience for teams working on common documents and eliminating problems with document version control. Cloud applications allow on-the-go work anywhere, dedicated and intuitive mobile applications and good security options for administration.

Cons

  • In a perfect world of project management, it would be great to see G Suite adopt some of the best practices for Drive. Possibly a Wiki with insight and detail that shows uniformity for a variety of projects.
  • I would also like to see Google for Education added as an add-on option for Suite users, which would save tons of time and money in operations so that those of us can consult and educate. If I had to choose, I would say a folder option for separate email accounts.
  • Creating a folder option (similar to the Gmail personal folder line) would dramatically help organize communication for different brands. I would also like to see them adopt a "timer" that helps users see how much time has gone by working on a particular project. What would be incredible!
  • Do not waste your valuable time trying to find a free or cheaper solution, it will not. For ~ $ 5 / month you will not find a better alternative. We recommend G Suite exclusively to our customers when it comes to e-mail management.
  • Our personal G Suite account manager proacitvely reached out to us and let us know that we can save up to 20% by switching to an annual plan.
  • It's great to have all the G Suite applications built for the student population, and Google provides more storage than we could reasonably provide. This is favorable when considering the cost ...
The lack of functionality in sheets and documents compared to the Microsoft office. There is something to be said about desktop applications instead of running everything through a browser. Unlike other products, G Suite simply works. G Suite email is one of the best investments you can make for your company. You no longer have to deal with unwanted emails and you can also get rid of the "Promotions" tab.
