"an excellent experience with this software"

What do you like best?

Google Vault is undoubtedly one of the best services we have in our organization, I really love your ability to perform audit reports, because Google Vault uses them to obtain information about the actions of our users, plus Google Vault has chats of the classic version of Hangouts with history enabled and Google Talk chats with registration enabled.

On the other hand you can also set retention rules to control how long the data will be kept until they are removed from user accounts and removed from Google systems.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I think Google Vault is such a comprehensive service that currently has no complaints about this service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The best service that you can use!

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

Google Vault has provided our organization with the perfect way to archive and search all emails sent through your domain. Whether for a legal electronic discovery, financial audits or compliance procedures, access to this historical data is a critical business requirement.

"Great for archiving critical communications"

What do you like best?

Reliable archival of data when legally required to or for best practices. It came through when I needed to prove/verify that certain communications did/did not occur, and when the last communications did occur. Time stamps, email addresses, etc. were critical.

What do you dislike?

The terminology, such as case and matter, is confusing and it requires that you play around to see how it works. Of course, due to its' nature, it is tracing your actions as well. It only shows a snippet and you have to drill down, back and forth to view the content.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Create a dummy email account, and perform some test searches to learn how information is searched, displayed, retained, etc. Remember to check out email, hangouts, deleted items, and other services to verify what is retained, searched. Then perform some reporting. Also try deleting an account and search again. It may be best practice to instead of deleting an account to suspend it, or transfer all data to a dummy account.

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

Archiving required communications to meet legal requirements, or best practice, just in case.

"A super solution for storing your documents online"

What do you like best?

I love to work with the Google Vault. What I like the most is that Google Vault is able to gather all the information across its different platform. It is a really good security feature. The Google groups are great for communication. Google Vault is intuitive for storage and very easy to use. I can backup of all our data in the G suite and archive emails. I also like that it is a Google product.

What do you dislike?

The main downside of the solution is the price point. It's a bit costly since it is $25 per user for the enterprise plan.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Google Vault is free to use and one of the best cloud services. However, you might not readily get support from Google. Whenever you encounter any issues, you are better off getting help from popular tech forums on the internet.

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

Google Vault is very easy to use and it looks very professional. Google Vault is a place where you can save a backup of all your data in the G Suite. It is a simple backup option. Also, it allows us to archive emails and is very secure. It is easily compatible with the other Google products like Gmail, Drive, etc. Google chats in most Google apps are generally smooth. Overall, it's been very simple and easy to use, which is a big priority.

"awesome product!"

What do you like best?

The best thing about this software is its ability to establish retention rules to control the durability of the data, you can also search the data of your domain by user account, organizational unit, date or keyword. In addition, Google Vault supports searches with Boolean operators and wildcards.

What do you dislike?

Currently we have approximately 3 years of use of this service, which is very original and competent, for this reason we have no complaints about its usefulness.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My only recommendation is that you need to try this product!

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

In the past we had problems with the security of our data, but after we tried Google Vault we really feel safe with the service since our records often contain confidential information, the encryption must be effective since it must keep the content safe and easily visible to authorized parties.

"Google Vault Review"

What do you like best?

First off, the best thing is knowing this is a Google app. With that comes reliability and good customer service. Second, the vault works seamlessly, easily stores all data I need it to, and does not take a long time to get used to like other data storing applications.

What do you dislike?

There really is nothing I have come across to this point that there is to dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Google Vault to anyone who needs a trusted source of data storage that is always reliable. Also, for those that do not know much about data storage and are seeking customer service that will help you through the process as well as an easy to use platform.

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

I use Google Vault to store and archive many large files, as well as things like photos and videos that I do not use that often but take up a lot of space on my computer.

"Has helped me manage and keep everything tucked away nicely"

What do you like best?

I have always been a Google fan boy because of the ease of use and most of all how low cost their products can be.

What do you dislike?

I can see that this software can be a little too much in terms of the learning curve. I tried teaching it to others and was pretty difficult for them.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

None at this moment

"The G Suite Makes Work A Breeze "

What do you like best?

I love the fact that we have access to all of the great features that the G Suite offer: email, calendar (for scheduling and making appointments), drive (for file sharing and collaboration), and much more!

What do you dislike?

I suppose the only downside would be that there are sometimes limits to how much storage one gets, but honestly what is provided in our plan is more than enough

Recommendations to others considering the product

Comes in handy in the most clutch situations. You can't go wrong here!

"Efficient & Sufficient Storage + Search Features"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I can search for data with so many different metrics, making it easy to find what I'm looking for.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a business option for the vault, instead of paying per user per month.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good if you are storing substantial amounts of data, otherwise the Suite should be sufficient for your business needs.

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

Given that we generate so much data and so many emails, Google vault in useful in storing all of this information and making it easily accessible when needed.
