Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I think it is a great subscription for me. I think it is important, especially when making an internal email subscription. For example, I can easily create my colleague's email address, and we can use it. I benefited from G Suite. I am using the G Suite Drive, which provides 30GB of storage, and it is helping for me. I think it's better for me.""Google seems to be a more stable environment than our current on-premise Microsoft solution that we're replacing.""What I like most about Google Workspace is the Google Drive app because you can easily access it from anywhere and from any device. I also find the solution easy to use. It's user-friendly.""Everything is synchronized across every single device you use to access G Suite. That is why we like it.""It is quite a useful tool. It allows many people to work on a document. You can actually provide review comments and tag anybody to make the comment changes. You can also attach a document in Google Chat.""The user interface is fantastic. It's also available for the individual person, so that's also a great thing about it.""I like everything that Google does. They have good products.""The email is excellent."

"It's relatively simple to use.""We have contacted technical support a handful of times and received some assistance.""Kerio Connect is secure, flexible, and easy to control from the user interface. It has many security features able to be controlled from one place, such as anti-spam. I have found it very convenient. Additionally, you can analyze log files and share folders which is helpful.""The most valuable features are its ease of use, excellent pricing, and it is platform agnostic.""What I like most about Kerio Connect is that it supports ActiveSync, and that is its most critical feature. The solution is also a nice, simple, robust, and stable mail server."

"They could increase the number of third-party integrations on offer.""Google Meet is a very good product, but it's not up to the mark if you compare it against other products like Zoom or Microsoft Teams.""Scalability is not as good as we would like.""The UI could be simplified and made more user friendly.""What needs improvement in Google Workspace is the Google Drive app, in particular, making the process of finding the shared and most used files and folders easier. The first time you get an invite to view a file or folder in Google Drive and you view that folder or file, it's pretty easy, but the next time you try to access it again, sometimes, it's a bit difficult to find what was shared with you. An additional feature I'd like to see in Google Workspace is the option to un-send messages in Gmail. Microsoft has a message recall feature, and this isn't available in Gmail, so it's the feature I'd like to be added to Gmail.""G Suite is not as powerful as Microsoft Office Suite, so sometimes we have to change to Excel and PowerPoint.""For Google Docs, if you upload a Word document up to Google Docs, it could mess up your formatting quite a bit.""The UI could be more graphic and sassy, but otherwise, it is quite functional."

More Google Workspace Cons →

"The search and archiving documentation capabilities need to be stronger.""It could be simpler to use and install, but I still wouldn't use it because there isn't a compelling use case.""I would like to see better support from their support team.""Having a native Outlook map integration would make Kerio Connect better.""The solution could improve the redundancy because we only have one copy of the Kerio Connect server on our hardware. The next step for us is to move to the cloud and if Kerio does not have a cloud version available they should release one"

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "The pricing is comparable, it's pretty decent."
