We are using Google Apps for everything. There are still some people that use Dropbox or Box, but we’re migrating slowly. The collaborative editing is essential for our business. It was very revolutionary in allowing multiple people to access a document. Google interfaces can be very spartan, but that becomes a strength when it gets into the Office domain. Many have tried to do the same thing but failed because they were trying to please everyone and the result became too complicated and completely unusable. Google started with a very focused feature—collaborative editing—that was a game changer and slowly built on additional functionalities.

We have Google Drive, but we don’t use it for storage--we just use it to access Google Docs.

Google Drive is good because it integrates with G Suite.

Google Drive - Best File Sharing Tools for Startups

Google Drive is a cloud-based file-sharing and storage platform that functions as a repository for all Google Apps, allowing you to upload and access your files for easy access from any browser or mobile device. Google Drive makes real-time collaboration a breeze, though the foremost complaint among the Stacklist community is Drive’s file organization; many founders feel that files can quickly become chaotic and disorganized, making Drive an unsustainable choice as they scale. Qualms aside, Google Drive is still the most popular file-sharing tool among the Stacklist community because of its strong collaborative capabilities and seamless integration with other Google products.
