Good for sharing, searching and storage share
Pros and Cons
  • "Low maintenance solution."
  • "Record your meeting and simply share with anyone without thinking where to store the file."
  • "Google meets use of whiteboard is primitive making it difficult to demonstrate while talking."

What is our primary use case?

We utilize the Drive Enterprise for sharing, the search drive and the storage share.

What is most valuable?

The ease of user sharing information among people in the organization is the most valuable feature of this solution.

For example, when you have a meeting, you can record it and then simply share with anyone you would like. You don't have to think about where to put the file, everything is semi-automatic, everything is functional.

What needs improvement?

Microsoft Teams has a lot more features than Google. Google Meet allows you to collaborate by drawing on a whiteboard while talking in the meeting, however it is primitive and not user friendly as it is a bit challenging to try to demonstrate using the whiteboard.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Google Drive since day one of our organization.

How are customer service and support?

Google Drive Enterprise is a low maintenance solution.

What other advice do I have?

If you don't need the added features of Microsoft Teams, Google Meet will satisfy the needs of collaboration and discussion. It is a good integration of Google. There has been no problems or issues. I would give it a 9 out of 10.
