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. They don’t want to worry about when, how, and why their services work – they just want them to work, every time. Unfortunately, when it comes to choosing a modern cloud-based office suite, many companies don’t look at the big picture. Many who used MS Office in the past transitioned into Microsoft’s cloud suite Office 365 without evaluating it any further – or considering alternatives. If you take a closer look at the available cloud based office solutions, you’ll come up with some interesting and valuable findings. When considering which cloud based office solution is best for you and your team, it’s a good idea to rethink things, to specify what your requirements are, and then to identify objective weaknesses in your current office solution. There are viable alternatives to Office 365: most notably Google G Suite.

Exclaimer: professional email signatures for G Suite and Gmail

Many companies stress the importance of maintaining a certain degree of uniform formality in how they use email to communicate with the outside world. It’s impossible to establish such universal standards across hundreds or even thousands of employees in an organization if they don’t have any options to control outgoing emails centrally.

Thankfully there are solutions such as Exclaimer, which offers professional, centrally controlled email signatures for G Suite with Gmail as well as other platforms. At a Google Cloud breakfast in Wiesbaden, representatives from Exclaimer gave us a tutorial presentation.

Why large companies and organizations are choosing Google G Suite

Google G Suite was created to improve collaboration within organizations on various levels, to make it more efficient, modern, and leaner. But Google didn’t just make G Suite for teams and small business but for large organizations and enterprises, too. The web-based solution can be scaled easily and allows thousands and even tens of thousands of employees to work efficiently and effectively. We have brought together a few sources where enterprises share their experiences on the transition and how it has benefited their business.
