Overall Satisfaction with G Suite

G Suite is used across our entire company of nearly 80 users, though different users use different aspects of G Suite. But we all use Gmail and Google Drive storage. We generally limit the use of G Suite for internal use for things like Docs, Sheets, and Slides for collaborative purposes.
  • Easy to share and collaborate on files.
  • Sufficient storage per user on Google Drive.
  • Easy to convert to or from Microsoft file formats.
  • Sheets should include more formulas that are similar to the Excel formulas.
  • Google should figure out a way to prevent companies from blocking docs.google.com. Or at least promote that is a trustworthy source of file sharing.
  • Provide more detailed print functionality other than just size and orientation.
  • Positive impact is more efficiency gained by collaboration.
  • No negative impact given that, as a nonprofit, G Suite is donated to us.
  • Another positive impact is the native integration to Saleforce.com
We did not try any other products given the fact that G Suite is donated to nonprofits. We did look at Office 365, but Microsoft does not donate that product. We did consider Dropbox for file storage and sharing, but again, that is pretty expensive for a company our size.
As described previously G Suite is well suited for use among the internal users in a company. It is perfect for sharing and collaborating on draft docs, sheets, slides. It is easy then to Download As Word, Excel or PowerPoint for external use. External use is the main sticking point. Many companies block docs.google.com from their employees so that sharing/collaborating across companies is a problem.
