“Google Slides makes my MBR and QBR run smoothly”
What do you like best?

It has all of the features you need to create nice and simple presentations

You can add your company theme and save it as a template pretty easily

The collaboration with others also makes completing a presentation easy no need to send around the presentation and have everyone update and then save the latest version.

Whenever you add a graph or chart it will give you the option to link to excel, so when you update excel it will let you update in google slide. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some features are a bit hard to find that in regular PowerPoint, you kind of has to scramble around to get to the feature, other than that it is great. I've never used the mobile app so I do know if it runs smoothly or not. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

“Half of my work is making good presentations and PowerPoint makes that easy”
What do you like best?

My main objective at work is making sure that people across different teams can communicate and collaborate with each other and have the tools available for doing that successfully and my second most important task is to onboard new team members to an ongoing project and for those tasks, a PowerPoint within a quick meeting is usually the way to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I was never a fan of using Web Applications if a Desktop version is available and I really hate that if someone else shares you a file to present but not to edit or save you can only open it on the browser. I'm already good at presenting PowerPoint but using a browser isn't the same. I have my shortcuts and my air mouse configured for PowerPoint and being forced to use the web version is just plain annoying, Microsoft please do a view-only mode at the Desktop version, every time I need to present from the web version my stress levels go thru the roof.

“Simple and easy to use”
What do you like best?

It connects with Slack so I can get reminders about my calendar events. Before I knew this, it was hard for me to stay on task and keep track of what things I had coming up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't think there is anything that I dislike about it. I have simple needs and it fits them. At one point, it stopped automatically creating a Google Hangout for events scheduled with multiple attendees, but then it was fixed within a couple of days. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think it's free, so use it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Google Calendar helps me organize my day and connect with others at my work. I can easily look up others' schedules to find a time to meet with them when I need to have a team meeting or a 1-on-1 with a supervisor.

It also makes it easy to set up calls with prospects because it sends email invites and can create meetings via Google Meets to have video calls. I use this all the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

“Not recognized as a business email while registering in some websites”
What do you like best?

The fact that it is widely known and the majority of people use it, another thing that stands out with Gmail is that it is easily integrated with other google suite products such as google drive, google docs, google sheets, and many more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The categorization of messages is very poor, sometimes my important messages from work go to the spam folder and those which are supposed to be on spam I find them on my important message category this is something they should work on. I tend to use Gmail in my day-to-day communications and one of the things that bother me is how google shares my email with other companies because I receive messages from sites that I have not subscribed to and this makes me worry if my information has been hacked. I feel like the unsubscribe button does not work you unsubscribe from content the next day you see the same content on your alert. The fact that it is easily integrated with most social media account makes it more vulnerable to hacking. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

With the availability of a free version anyone can afford it and you can have multiple free accounts just by using one mobile number. It is also simple to use I love the fact that there are built-in auto typing and correct features that help you while writing your emails. It is easily integrated with your social media accounts such as Youtube. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Google sheets is a cloud-based productivity tool for creating and managing spreadsheets.

“I used Gsheet every single day and can't complain”
What do you like best?

It has all the functions you need from excel in a cloud base app.

I use it every single day on multiple reports for our company and our partner and it works like a charm.

The more you work with it the better you become; our reports we worked by our Ops Analyst teams but we can build off from what they provided us. As with excel you need to know how to used and apply formulas to get the real benefit from it. Thankfully I paid close attention to this class in college so I'm able to better work with the tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the excel functions are not present in sheets:

Conditional Formatting for Duplicate values is not in there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

“Great tool to improve team communication and collaboration.”
What do you like best?

Best for office job than Gmail. The user interface is very nice and you can read e-mails very easily, email, copy and highlight them. The cooperation between my office and other departments in our company has been greatly increased. The right person will obtain and operate on all the details he wants easily using a fast tag. Our team uses the collaborative draft function often too, helping us to fine-tune in real time the most sensitive communication. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Often these functions function very slowly. Search still doesn't work right. It is not really helpful to chat. In addition, aside from certain functions, it is not convenient to use or recognize all the minor functions so I do not use them. Sometimes, for short periods, the site is hung or unacceptable. This occurred over the past year many times and is normally not that upsetting. However, a reliable service will be fantastic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It facilitates contact and teamwork among the company's various departments, saves time, is very effective and all e-mails can be accessed at once. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It is the easiest way for emails to be received and reviewed. It saves time, is highly effective and I can see all e-mails simultaneously. I can copy my mails very quickly. I can even search previous posts, tag people, set alerts and even tag my e-mails. I love how easy it is to use Front to send mails. Front lets me answer customer questions very quickly, work in and through teams and ensure that nothing spills out – a huge challenge we encountered prior to Front's deployment.

Chrome is the best and fastest web browser so everyone should use it on a computer or smartphone to surf the internet.

“Creative with Ease”
What do you like best?

I like the animations that I don't need to spend time orchestrating.

Color schemes are nice and relatively easy ability to upload photos. (Could be better like Google slide can insert URLs).

I like that you can make Prezi's public, as teachers, sharing prezis and making them available to students who were absent is ideal for making sure everyone has access to the content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the lack of variety in themes.

Less usability in inserting content, like photos or video.

I know it's because of all the data in the animations and creativity. But presentations can take a long time to load and lag while presenting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The less slides, the less time there is to load the presentation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It's helped my students make creative presentations for various units I teach and it also helps my students think about ideas in a linear/cyclical or tree branch approach depending on content and theme.

Frankly, lack of funding for educators makes it hard to justify paying for premium content. That isn't your fault, but it is a thing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

“Very good free email for business; Has seen great improvement recently”
What do you like best?

Zoho allows you to spin up a free email address at your custom domain name. They have good mobile and web apps for checking your mail. In addition, they have a good admin app that you can easily create new emails, reset passwords, etc. for all your employee email addresses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

On the free plan, they basically force you to use their email clients to check your mail. You are not able to log in and check your email using Gmail, for example. This used to be a bigger problem when their web and mobile apps were not very good, but in the past year, I have seen great improvement to a level where I genuinely enjoy using the clients.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give their apps a real try, even if you tried them before in the past. They have gotten quite good and enjoyable to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

How easy it is for us to create new spaces for new products and suppliers that we work with. Additionally, the format of how the documents are visible when we share links is one of the things that I love coming from a design background. Additionally, the lead capture and NDA portion of this makes it a much more secure way for us to share what we are doing and retain our sensitive information along the way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is difficult to pull the contacts in a clean format. Would love to be able to export a .csv

Would also be very beneficial to find a way to integrate our DocSend list to a CRM that organizes them such as Pipedrive or Hubspot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

“Like powerpoint but better for presenting in MacOSX”
What do you like best?

It works better than PowerPoint even when the presentation was created in Powerpoint, and it is a lot more intuitive for apple users, it works like the rest of the applications on the Apple ecosystem, especially amazing since you can control it from an iPhone and a MacBook at the same time in case you decide to switch devices for any reason and it is really hard to accidentally exit the presentation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Presenting in Keynote is far superior, editing not so much, font missing is a way too common experience and the simplicity can be a limitation, everything that can be done in PowerPoint can be done in Keynote, but it takes longer since the amount of tools on screen is limited, great to avoid clutter and for presenting, but the tradeoff is editing speed.
