"Added value to the already rich Google Apps"

What do you like best?

They have a lot of reports that can help to understand usage, or help with compliance with rules or policies.

You can easily browse other users data, and change permission or owner on files. Imagine you have an employee out for a month, and the project needs to go. You may have a manager asking access to a very important files that the employee was working on.

You can set "Rules" for monitoring, like "files shared outside of the company" with some actions, like "need approval". May be useful

What do you dislike?

The UI is very ugly, and slow. I understand the superheros things, but the UI keep loading. The file ownership transfer crash all the time, can't get it works.

Search and sorting files based on sharing policies is a pain. Ley say that you have 3 folders with 100 000 files in each. Someone share the 3 folders outside of the company. Using the report, you will get 300 003 items that are shared outside of the company, and very, very hard to get where it comes from.

Also, impossible to get a list of "outside email" that files are shared to. I would like to review this list, but can't get it.

Some reports crash.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I will evaluate other options since I'm not really satisfied of the "overall" gPanel. Be sure what you are looking for when using one of those softwares. gPanel has a lot of very good features, make sure it fit your requirements, or it won't be worth the price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Google, security is not a priority, meaning that you need to take care of it on your own. Example, Google don't do backups, so if someone delete a folder, all the file "not owned by them" won't go to trash, but orphan files. You're screw.

With gPanel you "add" some features and securities to your unsecured Google Apps.

"Incredible tool for a google administrator!"

What do you like best?

This tool lets you access all of your google administration needs in one place. Users, Groups, Resources and Sites. I like that you can see which individual is in each group, which group has which user in it, who can access resource calendars and the ownership of all of the above.

What do you dislike?

With the number of resources, users and groups in our system, it takes a bit of time to load the lists of users, groups and resources. This can add a bit of a wait to being able to administer a group if it doesn't pop up in the incrementally loading list.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a large user base using google applications. Gpanel lets us administer these accounts on a large scale easily and efficiently.

What Data Security solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Fully functional and a must if you use any Google apps"

What do you like best?

Ease of use. Short ramp up time to use. Control panel and settings are a no brainer which is great for the less technical users.

What do you dislike?

Somewhat leary of any system tied in to a data aggragator. However since we are using gmail and google drive it was really the best alternative for us.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out that the apps function with all your other software BEFORE switching.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloud based apps. Wonderful to be able to access data from anywhere. Wouldn't know what to do if we had to rely on logmein or another solution.

"All the things I wish google let you do."

What do you like best?

If you work with the google domain management you will quickly notice you have limitations. Gpanel fixes a lot of them! When an employee leaves or is gone unexpectedly you need to have there login to set them to out of office or on extended leave. I gpanel you now have the ability to do it yourself.
