Google G Suite – the affordable office alternative

Using a cloud infrastructure has many benefits. Depending on the size of your company and its requirements, cloud infrastructures can grow dynamically without having to buy and set up expensive hardware. You also no longer have to worry about server security, as the data centers of the large providers already have the very strictest security protocols.

With G Suite, Google has been developing an alternative office package that serves the needs of companies with their everyday work. You can use Gmail for emailing, Google Calendar for appointments, Docs for word processing, Sheets for calculations, and Slides for presentations, just to name a few.

An alternative to Office 365: How Google is positioning itself with G Suite Enterprise

Companies want flexibility, they want their software to respond more quickly to changes in their requirements, and, of course, they want cost savings.

Microsoft Excel Online vs. Google Sheets: Comparing Twelve Features

The vast majority of organizations use some sort of browser-based spreadsheet app, and Microsoft Excel Online and Google Sheets are industry leaders in this area of professional software.
