G Suite Vs Microsoft Exchange Online

Both G Suite and Microsoft Exchange are on paper, mailing solutions, but G Suite has more to it than meets the eye.

G Suite Vs Microsoft Exchange Online

Email communication is the fastest, easiest, and simplest way to transfer data among individuals around the globe. This has, in turn, helped organizations whose offices are located in different countries/states to thrive, maintain, and control their workflow.

Microsoft Office has always been the top choice for productivity tools like MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint, etc. The Tech Leader dominated the market for nearly 30 years for the user-friendliness and diverse features/formulae of its products. Using these tools dramatically increased the efficiency of the employees in the organization and reduced time consumption.

Google on the other hand has been the go-to platform to find answers for nearly 30 years for its advanced “keyword” searching algorithm along with distinct site rankings to find the most appropriate results to your queries. However, since 2006, Google has also jumped into the business of providing advanced office tools to capture a substantial part of the market share. 

Since the early 21st century, many companies have invested heavily in cloud computing and virtual machines which helped employees to work independently and access their data outside of their office thus increasing the firm's productivity many folds. Since Google’s Productivity tool G Suite was conceived in the cloud, It was way ahead of the competition and provided collaboration features that were not used before and this increased the all-round performance and efficiency of the firm.

However, Microsoft also incorporated their own mailing solution Microsoft Exchange server to store data of different businesses and introduced a bunch of other products.
