What do you like best?

Easy to set up, intuitive, works best both as a standalone and ecosystem (chat, docs, drive, meet, calendar, and forms).

The interface is brilliant. Also, the Gsuite add-ons are a great way to integrate to other platforms as well.

Gsuite has a brilliant Spam filter built into Gmail, that's truly great, it helps filter most of the conversations out. also, the different categories help prioritize the inbox.

Calendars have a great and simple interface making it easy to schedule. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The chat is clunky at times, and video calls are a standalone (separate and unique link) that is not integrated within the chat.

The docs, sheets, and slides are again not as seamless as Microsoft's products but it does do keep life productive Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As an early-stage company's founder, I highly recommend it to early-stage founders, do not look at cutting cost, this tool can help your team be much more productive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Team communication and collaboration.

Sure Gsuite has helped us to connect better and the integrations it offers are brilliant to stay abreast on our CRM, project management tool, and work better. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The main advantage is that all your documents are in the cloud. You can access them from anywhere, modify them, send them, share them. You can host your corporate email with the company's own domain. Through the Google Chats you can easily communicate your colleagues and use email system for official communication. Although now that I look at it it tells me that it has unlimited space.You can create text documents, spreadsheets, drawings, presentations, etc. You only need a updated browser. You can integrate almost every CRM program. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If you come from Microsoft Office for example and you have many documents created there, the import is not entirely 100% correct. Mostly Excel documents with macros and stuff. The moment you move it to G Suite things stop working. And although G Suite has a mini programming language integrated, it is not even close to VBA that has Office integrated. Pricing is really expensive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please, consider the fact that sometimes customer support can be slow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is great for daily office worklow with documents, google chats and google hangouts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is amazingly easy to use and set up. It was only 30 minutes to the whole set up from the start until we can start using it. It is everything under one admin which is makes so easy to use it and administer it. It has really good support and also lots of app available for it. It is works like you expected from a google product Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It takes forever to migrate emails from existing emails. It is a bit tricky to set up first if you already have a gmail account and you already logged in. (You have to use a incognito window for the first log in not to mix with your existing gmail account. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just try it and you will be falling love immediately. You can have a 30 day trial before you have to pay for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used our own email servers and lots of times our important emails went to a spam. Also we used dropbox for big files and our own gmail and shares for collaborate with documents Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

GSuite just the best productivity and collaboration software for people working together. Earlier I have used MS products and even classic applications for mail, docs, calendar... but all of them not give me the same level of satisfaction as GSuite in day to day usage.

Main things I like in GSuite:

- almost all important tools to cover company life exists;

- all products highly integrated;

- everything works in WEB - nothing to install and so;

- one login/pass to access all tools;

- improvements added over time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Even if I highly liked GSuite there are bunch of things I hate in this software - let's see main pain points:

- Chat app - it's worst chat app I've used. And even more - they present a new chat tool almost every year, but all of them nothing near current winners like Slack, Teams and so;

- Cost - it's expensive, especially for small companies. And even worse - they not offer basic free account. In other words they simply don't care about small startups and similar companies (which may grew up to bigger ones).

- Design - I use GSuite 8 years and yes, there are some minor updates to improve visibility, but I think it's still looks like tools from 2010-s.

- Support - even if you use paid GSuite it's really hard to get a support from real person. Worst support I ever saw in such a big companies, especially comparing to companies like Amazon for example. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GSuite cover all basic need for modern companies and particularly for us - for example we use these GSuite components as our basic tools:

- GMail for mails;

- Drive to store files;

- Docs/SpreadSheet/etc;

- Meet for video conferencing;

- Calendar to schedule meetings. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I really like the price. It is very inexpensive for a non-profit, and serves our needs well. I love that it is collaborative, and that it automatically backs everything up as you go, so no worries about invalid saves or "read only" issue with shared documents on a server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not all of our staff come in with a knowledge of g-suite. A lot of them are used to some other types of solutions for this, so it can be a challenge initially. Getting away from Microsoft Office suite can be hard, for those that are used to working with that all the time. And cross-platform functionality between the two isn't perfect, and while Sheets and the other apps within GSuite are great, they aren't always as user-friendly or have as many resources to help as Excel and Word or even Publisher. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

"out of the box" it is incomplete, so there is some setup time to make it effective for your office space. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This helps keep our documents, spreadsheets, images, and others all together, and allows great workflow with multiple people working on shared documents at the same time. It backs it all up automatically, and is available from anywhere, which makes it extremely easy to use remotely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

G-Suite is a cost effective solution for organizations and small businesses. I have experience both using G-Suite in my own small business as well as working with non-profits. The admin console is very easy to use. Implementing new services and setting up email was extremely easy. I was drawn to G-Suite due to the price and abundance of cloud storage. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The prices seems sporadic some months, and I do not see a standard price schedule. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to collaborate during a pandemic, and a central hub to have all needed information and e-mail access. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Newly established function is great, I am talking about Google Chats. Now I will not have to open WhatsApp tab in my browser or will not distract myself via phone. Spreadsheets as part of G Suite is really helpful and easy to use. It is cloud based once you make changes you can share teammates. It is great in terms of avoiding spam filtering. Moreover, G Suite pack offers google forms, drive, meeting etc for business activities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My only concern is about the price. Moreover, if you do not pay the subscription you can lose the access to your previous documents and they can be deleted as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would kind suggest the company to consider its pricing strategy once more. Because not everybody can afford it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped us to communicate with customers and manage daily workload at job. Moreover, it helped us to manage the documentation procedures at work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

With G Suite, which you can use for corporate purposes, you can get an e-mail address name specific to your business, which provides a more professional stance for you. Another of the most important benefits for your business is that more than one person can work on the same document. It is also possible to see the changes made by the employees. With a G Suite account membership, you can use 30 GB of storage, an email address with a private company name, and compatible plugins available through the Suite Marketplace. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Perhaps the issue that all users suffer from is that access is not possible without an internet connection. So if there is no internet connection in your location, you cannot log into your G Suit account. I've seen a few articles on how to fix this problem in advance, I hope it's true. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is also important to know how to manage your Google Suite account. After logging into your Google Suite account, you will be taken to the G Suite admin panel and you can manage your account settings from there. In the Users section, you can add new people to your account or assign information such as title or department to the people you use together. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Suite gathers all kinds of applications that employees and businesses may need. This account, which is obtained by paying a small amount at the first time on behalf of each employee, is a channel that will connect all departments and movements within the company. When you start using a G Suite account, we will have access to many applications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Almost all these functions has become easy with G suite as it support for many features for day today management. Specially video conferencing is much easy with this and user experience is really high as it has no latency. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some times it takes time to get familiar with some features as it has learning curve. Because it has lot of features. When it comes to the pricing it is affordable but bit high. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Almost all the problems when working with teams are solving using G suite. It is best supporting tools for these days as we remotely manage all the team mates via G suite and conduct events and video conferencing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

G Suite's apps like Google Drive and Gmail have pretty good user interfaces Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

G Suite does not have any good way of having multiple people manage an email like contact@. There are also plenty of minor stupid things, such as being blocked from logging in using browsers Google doesn't approve of (even if it's Chromium-based), not allowing file uploads in shared drives, Google Drive File Stream periodically closing all folders you have open on macOS and link sharing not being public by default Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

All my information is stored and continuosly backed up in the cloud, no risk of missing anything. The collaborative features (simultaneous edition, comments) increases productivity. Privacy and security features are very easy to set up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Hard to find what I don't like of G Suite. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If aspects like security, privacy and availability have been concerns that have delayed your decision to switch to the cloud, you can take this step seriously. At the beginning is a little bit of a change of paradigm, but you will be surprised of how quick you will get used to G Suite, saying goodbye to stand alone corporate solutions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backing up my corporate documents and files now is easier than ever. No more missed data due to blue screen errors, energy failures, autosave feature disabled randomly, etc. Good bye to documents with multiple versions, now is easier to share, review, comment and edit files by teams.

I love that our team could share and update documents in real time. I also really like that G Suites is always evolving and improving. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that there are more limitations to some of the applications, especially when it comes to design and aesthetic options. For example, I love being able to design a form for people to fill out, but the customization of the design is not always something that the average user can make to look pleasing for the person filling out the form. Most often I use a different online service for those forms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it! We have used it at different levels of involvement for years. Such a great product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

With working from home, or even when we are in the office together, G Suite keeps us all on the same page! We can work through a meeting agenda, create follow-up task lists, and update the project files keeping those who need to know where the project is in process right up to the moment.

What do you like best?

What I like best about G suite is that I can be connected to my network simply by being in the organization. No need to build an address book, I have access to everyone in my team in just one click. It also allows me to securely share archives with anyone from my team with a quick upload. It's like being in a club where work happens. There is also a dashboard for quick access to apps. It has a very organized look that is easy to navigate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside to G suite is that it automatically integrates all my contacts to my phone, which I don't really need. Also, I'm prone to get emails from the organization that are irrelevant to what I do here. We should be able to create groups that way we can only contact people in our groups instead of the whole organization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One huge benefit is that I can send emails to anyone I need to, without having to go through an entire address book. I can send emails quickly and move on to the next one Also when it comes to sharing documents, I have the ability to send it to anyone that needs to see it in my organization. There's really no barrier that stops me from sending files to someone. G Suite is literally like a virtual office. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Seamless syncing and accessibility between device, and full functionality with Microsoft office files in the Google lineup of online apps.

Adding my first team member to my business was a breeze. I once worked in a small business where we tried to add Microsoft Office OneDrive and it was a complete disaster. It was nearly impossible to figure out how to get it synced on our computers (we actually never got to figuring it out) and we got ridiculously long and embarrassing email addresses.

G Suite? I had my team member added in 2 minutes and access to everything I needed him to see right away. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The detailed admin settings can be a little difficult to navigate through. However, if you're running a very small team you probably don't need to get into all that stuff anyway. And if you are in a bigger company, you probably have the resources to have a staff member or entire department take care of the administrative user settings stuff. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Giving team members and clients quick and easy access to shared files and working documents. Able to take documents provided by clients in a Microsoft file type and edit/open them within G Suite. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best part of G Suite is you have a branded email, forwarding all other emails, extra drive space, faster, more control of spam, custmer training support, and focuses to one central hub. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Spam could follow from other email boxes when forwarded to branded email, but customer support assured me there is more control of spam in G Suite by setting up conditions for blocking. Presently, all emails will migrate to branded email. Google drive has to been done maually by customer Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The first objective was migrating all emails from previous email. Then, I organized all emails and deleted old ones that were not necessary for my operations. I am also working on organizing my Google drive for my first draft writings and plan to utilize the Meetings with my team. I can also brand emails for key members. This has me helped compartmentalize my projects and clear out the extras that was no longer needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
