Real-time collaboration: Google Workspace has the advantage

While Microsoft 365 started out as an offline office suite, the DNA of Google Workspace is 100% cloud-based. Real-time online collaboration on the same file is therefore smoother on Google tools, thanks in particular to shorter loading times.

Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace in a nutshell 

Formerly G Suite, Google Workspace is a suite of collaborative tools developed by Google. These include Gmail and the indispensable Agenda, Meet, Drive, Sheets, Docs, etc. Since October 2020, Gmail has officially become the gateway to the entire Google suite.

Formerly Office 365, Microsoft 365 is also a suite of collaborative tools. Developed by Microsoft, the suite includes the well-known Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, among others. Created in 2011, it was initially designed as a set of office software used offline.

The way your data is hosted has an impact on its security 

The Cloud Act is a 2018 US federal law that allows the Department of Justice to order a US internet service provider (including any SaaS publisher) to access data stored on its servers, even on those located outside the US. A law to which Talkspirit, a French publisher, is obviously not subject.

12: that's the average number of communication tools provided by IT departments around the world. And that's not counting business software... As a result, employees are constantly switching from one tool to another, wasting precious time and not exploiting their productivity potential. Talkspirit solves this problem by centralizing all the tools needed on a daily basis on an all-in-one collaborative platform
