    25. 25. “ Google Apps is not an enterprise-class solution. It’s a consumer solution, and we did not want to risk our business on it .” “ Yes, we might have saved one or two dollars per month going with Google Apps, but it wasn’t worth it. Selecting software that makes it more difficult to work is the wrong way to save money.” “ The Microsoft online and offline applications complement each other. Google is online only and posed compatibility and formatting issues. ” “ We looked at Google Apps, but it doesn’t offer the range of services found in Microsoft Online Services.” “ Google apps weren’t ready to handle the state’s business. They weren’t robust enough and they lacked the full functionality that we needed”
