"personally prefer to use G Suite applications, such as Gmail, Slides, and Sheets, because they give you the freedom to share the document you're editing and co-work with other colleagues simultaneously.""Being able to back up our data on Google Drive is a critical and valuable feature for our customers. It is just in sync. Imagine you change a file on the desktop, and it gets updated directly to your Google Drive. Our laptop is completely in sync with Google Drive. Google Meet, Google Sheets, and Google Docs are also amazing products. They're very versatile and easy to use as compared to Office 365. I am using Google Sheets and Google Docs, which first save the work on my memory or ROM, and then on my RAM. It gives me better productivity through Google Sheets and Google Docs.""Valuable features of the solution are that it's simple and effective.""The general ease of use is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's extremely simple to use. You don't even have to look up videos in order to figure things out. It's all very intuitive.""Extremely reliable, providing great collaboration features.""Good search features, reliable storage, and quick thinking.""They are launching more and more features for mobile, which I understand our customers appreciate.""When it comes to email, Google has a very good anti-spam engine or solution. We get very less spams. We don't have to use an external anti-spam solution with this."

Cons
"Some of our customers are facing issues if they've deployed in hybrid mode.""DLP features are lacking and required because, especially with everyone working from home, security is now paramount when the data is on BYOD devices.""Everything they have should be integrated into one item."

More Citrix ShareFile Cons →

"They can maybe improve its graphical user interface. Google is not really known for having a PC interface. It is just a nice-to-have feature.""Scalability is not as good as we would like.""For Google Docs, if you upload a Word document up to Google Docs, it could mess up your formatting quite a bit.""The synchronization is a bit of an issue.""The UI could be more graphic and sassy, but otherwise, it is quite functional.""Google Mail's spam filter needs improvement. If I'm sending mail to another email user, sometimes it goes to the spam folder, and they won't know unless they check because they aren't seeing it in the primary inbox. They may miss important emails. At the same time, I'm receiving spam that shouldn't go to my inbox.""To a degree, the project management service could be improved.""The cost could be improved. It can sometimes be a bit confusing figuring out how we are actually being charged."

  • More Citrix ShareFile Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Licensing costs are on a yearly basis."
  • "We normally purchase the license on a yearly basis."
  • "It's low in cost as compared to Office 365. There is an annual licensing cost."
  • "We pay a monthly subscription for the use of this solution."
  • "The pricing is very high, although I cannot tell if this is the result of the Indian vendors artificially inflating it."
  • "Approximately $6 per user, per month."
  • "The main challenge regarding startups with identity services is you could be on a platform that works well but the services are expensive. For example, Microsoft Azure costs approximately $30 per user which is expensive. You end up choosing a different platform, such as G Suite Enterprise because it is priced reasonably and is less expensive than other solutions."
  • "It's cheaper to run a couple of users in a Google platform than what it would be with Microsoft Exchange."
