    There is one.

    I believe its free on the enterprise plans, but not on the "Business" plans.

    That said, everyone "business" that uses more than just "email and the app" is on the enterprise one anyway.

    So back to the first post, the comment was that "G Suite is too expensive".

    Given that G-Suite's $5 plan is (a) cheaper than every single plan Microsoft offer, and (b) offers everything (and more) Microsoft offer in their $13.20 plan (2.6 times the cost per user), I'd dare say that Microsoft won't win this sale.

    we are going with MS, it works out cheaper per user because it includes office software suite which currently costs them $90 per user a year..

    + it has shared calendars/contacts/tasks

    I just hope its more reliable then the outgoing email host has hinted at.

    GSuite has all of the features you mentioned above. (Docs, Spreadsheets, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, and tonnes more).

    Of course not. Why would you want to use a legacy method of email management? That's the 1990s way of dealing with communication.

    Modernise and halve your costs in one go. Makes way more business sense.

    Ah, the "but we've always done it this way" crowd. Enough said.

    At the pace technology is moving currently, these folk are going to start costing businesses a lot of money. It's going to be an interested decade ahead.
