It is very easy to share and joins documents.""G Suite Enterprise is scalable.""They are launching more and more features for mobile, which I understand our customers appreciate.""The features we use quite a lot are the mail and Google Drive. We can store documents and share documents between both employees here, locally in Sweden, and we have an office in the US as well. It's a very easy way to share information and documents, and have online meetings and stuff with Google Meet. We use it quite a lot.""The most valuable feature is that it is simple to use.""It's a secure solution that enables you to choose those you wish to share with."

"All of the Microsoft Exchange Online is very useful, such as the sections, the information protection, and the mail flows.""The solution is easy to use and the cloud version has taken a lot of challenges away from the user.""We have found the solution to be stable.""It allows us to work from home, at any time or anywhere.""I have found the interface to be user-friendly and the overall simplicity valuable features.""Exchange Online is a straightforward cloud-based application. It's easy to connect and the interface is user friendly.""The online version is faster, as it is a cloud instance. We can have massive mailbox capacity: 100 GB per user, which is huge. We can't provision such capacity internally, as the company would get burnt out paying for mailbox storage.""The solution is stable."

"When I compare with Office 365, G Suite has fewer features.""The solution is not user-friendly and it doesn't integrate that well with Microsoft Office, which is one of the bigger business apps on the market, compared to Google Sheets and applications of that sort.""They could increase the number of third-party integrations on offer.""In some cases, we are using the Google Meet functions but only when we have external clients. Internally, we are using Slack. Google Meet virtual meeting function is not as advanced as the one in Slack and should improve.""We've had difficulty using PowerPoint files in G Suite. PowerPoint has some functions that are not available in G Suite, so when you convert from PPTX to the Slides format, they don't work.""It would be nice to have additional software, such as Microsoft Teams, since our basic edition, Google Meet, cannot record video.""Not all tools are available in the one facility.""In the next release, I would like to see more encryption of documents, mail, and things like that. There should be a better way to encrypt mail and documents that are pushed through this system. That would be some improvement or additional features that could be good to have."

More G Suite Enterprise Cons »

"I would prefer an anti-malware functionality in at least the basic version.""The solution should have a stand-alone application instead of us having to go through an internet browser.""The integration could be better if it could integrate well with other products and software.""The price could be cheaper.""The licensing price of the solution could be lower.""The solution should have more integration with other platforms.""The solution could improve with the integrations with some of the known applications is still not possible, there must be more connectors.""I don't like it in general. It sort of has that Microsoft flavor to it, which is just the style they use and the way they color things and lay them out."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is very high, although I cannot tell if this is the result of the Indian vendors artificially inflating it.""Licensing costs are on a yearly basis.""2,500 Rupees per month per user.""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 low in cost as compared to Office 365. There is an annual licensing cost.""We normally purchase the license on a yearly basis.""It's about $8.30 up a user per month."

It cost approximately $13 per month.""We have an enterprise agreement for licensing.""The model is one which is pay-per-use go. There is no license. We are talking about per-user subscription-based use.""There is a license required for the solution and it is paid annually."
