Things got awfully heated at the 2014 Small Business Summit as Michael Spadaro, Profound Cloud and Melanie Gass, Centerpoint Solutions go head to head about Google vs. Microsoft and which one is better for your business.
As the debate starts, questions are thrown at Michael and Melanie in regards to the programs capabilities for document creation, the ability to run your business using the platforms, the security offered by both platforms and more!
Check out the full debate between Michael and Melanie here, or simply watch below.
One of the debate topics addresses that while many people find Microsoft to be overwhelming and intimidating with the limitless functions, Google is argued to be a much more simple and easy to navigate platform. With this, Melanie and Michael begin their debate.
Melanie opens the argument saying that Microsoft is built to appeal to a wider audience, whether you’re an individual, a small business or a fortune 500 company, Microsoft is geared to work for you. However, even with the large amount of functions, Melanie says that it is still easy to use basic functions if needed.
In response, Michael retaliates by agreeing that yes, Microsoft is a good step for taking the next incremental step in your business if you don’t want to learn something new. However, if you’re starting a new company or if you’re looking to go completely virtual in your business and you are willing to invest the time and adapt to something new, then Google is the platform for you.
