For pricing, we are taking the monthly cost from each provider.

Additional notes:

  • Some do offer slightly cheaper plans if you commit to their annual plans or purchase licenses in bulk. For example, you can get G Suite down to $4.2 /user/month.
  • It’s important to note that Office 365 Business Essentials doesn’t include their Office desktop software, only their web-based apps.

Additional notes:

  • G Suite’s 30GB of storage is counted as combined storage across Google Drive and Gmail.
  • If you’re comparing presentation software, Microsoft PowerPoint still probably wins hands down.
  • Gmail also has a lot better integrations with third-party apps than that of its counterpart Outlook.
