Which to Deploy For Your Company: Office 365 or Google For Business?
The importance has never been greater for companies to select the right tools available in order for technology to scale to meet their company’s business objectives. Clare Computer Solutions (CCS) provides IT management, budgeting and consulting services.
According to CCS CEO Brad Mendonsa: “As more companies rely on online collaboration, remote workers and cloud computing they need to address the scalability of their businesses and we feel that Office 365 is often the best tool for companies.”

According to CCS CEO Brad Mendonsa: “As more companies rely on online collaboration, remote workers and cloud computing they need to address the scalability of their businesses and we feel that Office 365 is often the best tool for companies.” The importance has never been greater for companies to select the right tools available in order for technology to scale to meet their company’s business objectives.
Google For Business tends to work best with startups or companies looking to cut their expenses and don’t have deep security, regulatory compliance, or need 24/7 help desk for their workers.
Google’s product suite includes messaging collaboration and basic productivity but doesn’t offer key functionality that Office 365 provides.
Office 365 offers unified messaging, enhanced collaboration, productivity suite, virtual meeting, fidelity with Office documents, options for Office Pro Plus, 24x7 support, financially backed Service Level Agreements (SLA), and voice. Microsoft Office has also tightened up its security and compliance and is HIPAA and ISO compliant.
Although Google For Business offers convenience and an easy user experience and modest cost, the slightly more expensive cost for Microsoft is justified by Office 365’s more extensive feature set.
Some organizations utilize a hybrid approach with Google For Business for some employees and departments that prefer Google and Microsoft 365 for other departments. For the enterprise level company or mid-to large size company Microsoft 365 is likely the better choice with similar cost per user subscription with a year-long commitment, functionality and broader applications for businesses.
Below are links to two documents that detail the features, benefits, costs and pros and cons for Office 365 vs Google For Business. “We want to help our clients to be as knowledgeable as they can about the tools they will be working with. Some of the technology choices they make today will impact their business productivity for years to come,” concluded Mendonsa.
