Gone are the days of going to a store and buying productivity software off the shelf. Nowadays G Suite and Office 365 are king. Both are integrated suites of collaboration and productivity apps. G Suite offers Google apps like Gmail, Docs, and Drive, while Office 365 offers Microsoft products such as Outlook, Word, and Excel. Both options have starting prices at $5/month per user and have tiered plans for businesses with different needs.
The question that we get asked all the time is which one should I use? This is a difficult question to answer quickly and effectively. Each business has their own unique needs and as a result each approach is different.
This comparison document is aimed at providing you with as much information as possible on both options with recommendations on when to use one or the other. As always, we strongly recommend analyzing both solutions in detail before deciding to avoid costly migration charges.
