"It is really easy to load files to and from this solution."
"Box is extremely stable, they have not been hacked or lost any data in the past seventeen years. I am very impressed with it."
"I like the ease of use."
"The solution is scalable."
"You can upload your bin, upload your files quickly, and download your files quickly. It provides a lot of other alternatives."
"It is a very user-friendly product."
"I like that Box makes it easy to deploy virtual machines."
"The collaboration of the solution is good."
"The solution is very stable."
"Valuable features of the solution are that it's simple and effective."
"It's more open than Microsoft and easy to use."
"Google Workspace is an excellent tool for communicating with people, which allows users to collaborate and edit files simultaneously."
"From a security point of view, Google will alert you if anything strange is happening. They will flag it for you so you are aware."
"The solution is stable."
"Google integrates well with our system. G Suite has an open API, so you can connect any open system with Google capable of working with API. This is the main reason we use it."
"The email is excellent."
"One thing that Box would benefit from is a records management component."
"The room for improvement is in the area of integrations. They need to establish more integrations, especially with Office 365 and Outlook."
"I don't like the low level of role-based security it provides – it's very cumbersome, and the support is ordinary at times."
"They could integrate better with other platforms."
"The search features and role permissions are not very user friendly. It only searches the first few pages of a document, which is quite a problem."
"It could be cheaper."
"If you want to delete something in Box, you have to do it manually, one by one. That was my recent experience. They might have a bulk delete, but I could not find that option. If you want to delete something, you have to go to each and every file and delete it."
"With OneDrive, you can continuously save your files over a Box folder. That is something I wish we could have."
"Improvements to G Suite would be the ability to collaborate more easily and better quality video compression in Google Meet."
"The initial setup is not intuitive at all."
"Google Meet can have a bit more functionality. It should show the views of more people. Right now, it shows just eight at a maximum, or six. When there are more people on the call, more than eight, everyone is not showing."
"There's a bit of a learning curve."
"When I compare with Office 365, G Suite has fewer features."
"There are times the plugins or extensions in the solution do not work properly and I need to disable and enable the solution."
"The meeting platform of Google Workspace has room for improvement."
"The UI could be more graphic and sassy, but otherwise, it is quite functional."
Similar to G Suite, all Google Workspace plans provide a custom email for your business and include collaboration tools like Gmail, Calendar, Meet, Chat, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, and more.
As we’ve evolved G Suite into a more integrated experience across our communication and collaboration tools, we’ve rebranded to Google Workspace to more accurately represent the product vision.
