    10/10, I have never had a service work so fluently with minimal to non-existent workflow interruptions.

    Pros

    This is worth every penny! Being able to access my documents from anywhere on any device at anytime has revolutionized my business. I can be bombarded with questions while on a phone call and be able to access and share documents backing my point up.

    Cons

    I wish I could add more users for a lower price. However, given the already affordable price I really have nothing to complain about.

    In overall, I especially loved Google Workspace's comprehensive security measures and uptime tracking, which provided me with the piece of mind that my data is secure and that its services can be relied upon.

    Pros

    Google Workspace offers all of the productivity tools that are need on a day-to-day basis and includes them all. The adoption of several applications like as Sheet, Drive, and Calendar, amongst others, has significantly simplified team collaboration. The best feature is that it has a simple user interface, which makes it appealing and simple to use.

    Cons

    In my experience using Google Workspace, I have not encountered anything that I would consider to be a negative aspect of the platform. They can make improvements to Google Meet so that it is easier to use.

    Google Workspace remains a highly efficient and collaborative tool for many of my projects.

    Pros

    What I love most is how all the apps, like Gmail, Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Calendar, work together so effortlessly. This makes it super easy to switch between tasks without any hassle.

    Cons

    For small businesses or individual users, the subscription costs can add up, especially if they don't need all the features included in the higher-tier plans.

    GSuite Makes Process Collaboration Easy

    That being said, overall, GSuite is one of the most-used tools by me. I work with data sets, creative projects, photos, and more as a Social Media Coordinator and Admin. My joint-role means I'm working on a lot of different kinds of projects, and my fast-paced timelines means the consolidation of tools in one place makes G Suite super appealing and efficient. Highly recommend.

    Pros

    It's so easy to collaborate with GSuite. Just this week we kicked-off a complete overhaul of our processes due to retiring staff, and desire for standardization. I'll focus on Team Drives, and document sharing:
    -With GSuite, we set up a Team Drive that all staff have access to. It's easy to find when you click Drive, right there under your personal drive.
    -Using Gsuite allowed not only our manager, but also staff, to create folders as buckets of processes. For example, we use Slate, and an older CRM system, Banner, which each have wildly different levels of technical execution, but are used at the same time. Our staff just dumped a bunch of individual processes which we can now view, edit, and share back as the standardization process continues.
    -Easy to see who made edits, and when. So, if we have a question about a process line, we'll simply look to the edit, and can easily track and clarify questions.
    -GSuite does, however, have an incredible range of tools, which are all equally visible, editable, and sharable. One of the most values tools I use at work.

    Cons

    There are only a few cons about GSuite.
    -In Google Sheets in GSuite, the organization and visual user interface is not optimal. Because whatever was just edited shows up at the top, there's no way to predict a good method of searching for documents.
    -GSuite in general has this issue with visual user interface among projects, including Sheets

    I enjoyed it, it was instrumental in running my small venture, it think its a solution you can progressively scale with no matter what the size of your business is.

    Pros

    the ease of setting up the account, getting the domain linked to the workspace and managing the account in general is smooth, also the pricing is really good.

    Cons

    I think the deployment was fairly easy but i think some important emails got flagged a couple of times in spam. in general it is pretty reliable.
