Collaboration platform useful for teams in different countries

Excellent experience with google drive and the associated docs, sheets and tools. It has made collaboration easier and the additional space and business functions afforded to charities to free to an extra bonus for us.

Pros

The key feature that makes google drive better than other cloud platforms is that everyone can access it without needing to download software or even have strong internet connection. Its offline functions are super important for working with teams in the field who are able to work in remote locations and upload reports when they are reconnected.

Cons

The need to have my collaborators also have a g-mail account to access is a little time consuming in order to set them up with the account first. But now everyone has g-mail and google drive access our team is able to collaborate much more smoothly

Reasons for choosing Google Drive

To foster collaboration with people outside of my organisation and to better work with my teams overseas who do not have good internet connection.

Reasons for switching to Google Drive

Glass cubes prevents external organisation collaboration and the security system is a barrier to collaboration. Also Glass cubes is a lot more expensive compared to the free service offered by Google Drive.

Excellent product for sharing and manage documents!

It is a great product, compatible, easy to use and reliable so far.

Pros

Google Drive allows you to have free storage, it has a great compatibility with every phone, tablet, computer, and any other device we tested, the refresh rate is almost immediate, easy to understand user interface, preview of almost all file types and some security features.

Cons

As any other cloud services it has security risks which needs to be carefully managed, there is a size limit which can be managed with the paying subscription, it requires internet connection, the uploading-downloading can be slow depending on the internet connection and file size.

Reasons for choosing Google Drive

Because it has better compatibility features than the other products,

Reasons for switching to Google Drive

Google Drive shows more compatibility and better security.

Is Google Drive a better choice for Cloud storage

the experience is indescribable but if I'm to put into words it's "worth trying" try it out and you won't regret

Pros

before you even signup for any Google Drive plan you will get a free 15GB storage lasting for a lifetime, but also it's easy to use with a very friendly user interinterface

Cons

you need to be cautious though Google tries its best to make Google Drive secure but you should know that, it's not 100% secure from hacks but follow security guidelines in order to minimize the risks to be hacked

Reasons for choosing Google Drive

Because of its pricing plans, but as well as more other options such as the ability to instantly store or save your Google Docs, Google sheets and lastly on top of that Google Drive gives to all its users 15GB for free which believe me i would it is rarely seen elsewhere.

Reasons for switching to Google Drive

Dropbox's pricing is just insane for me it wasn't a convenient option, but also in order for you to integrate other products such as Google form which is a very essential web app that are frequently use, you will need a third-party app such Zapier, and that's a "NO" for me
