BetterCloud product overview

What is BetterCloud?

BetterCloud provides critical insights, automated management, and intelligent data security for cloud office platforms. By leveraging open APIs, BetterCloud securely connects with your data at its source, providing maximum control without requiring any cumbersome setup. Offering solutions for both Google Apps and Office 365, BetterCloud is trusted by IT teams in over 50,000 organizations worldwide.

Key benefits of using BetterCloud

Manage:
Day-to-day management becomes second nature with BetterCloud. Whether you’re bringing on a new employee or someone is leaving the company, FlashPanel’s built-in best practices and workflows help reduce the potential for costly errors like data loss.

Automate:
With BetterCloud's scheduling features, Google Apps administrators can push out policies for various settings like IMAP/POP and email signatures on a daily basis. And when an employee leaves the company you can immediately suspend their account, then schedule deletion for a later date.

Simplify:
BetterCloud helps reduce your time spent managing Google Apps by simplifying repetitive tasks. You can add or remove users from multiple Groups with a few clicks, and bulk actions make management processes even easier. You can even apply and enforce email settings or granular permissions by Group or Org. Unit.

Delegate:
BetterCloud's Access Control allows Google Apps administrators to delegate granular access levels to other users in the domain. Whether the VP of Marketing wants control over company email signatures, or an IT help desk member needs access to BetterCloud's Deprovision User feature, Access Control lets Google Apps administrators delegate the right responsibilities to the right people.

Analyze:
Google Apps produces mountains of data, but making sense of that data can be complicated. BetterCloud's reports help you cut through the clutter and track important metrics, like user activity, so that you can schedule additional training or even reassign licenses.

Pros
It love how it syncs so quickly with GSuite (typically changes happen within 10-15 seconds instead of 30 minutes with MS.) It does provide a few extra features as well over GS like delegation.

I personally experienced it. It is really amazing software.

This software is great for having a central management point for many of your SaaS applications.

Cons
This company has charged my credit card twice - the 2nd time was after I disputed the charge with American Express. I am now disputing the charge for a second time.

Hell, my cheaper subscription services have cancellation components built into their apps, why can't this one.

Tanya writes back and tells me it is too late to cancel. I am still trying to cancel this account even after submitting a written request to cancel BEFORE the auto-renewal.

Bettercloud makes GSuite Management much easier

Reviewed 3 years ago

We have thought of going without Bettercloud, but everytime we recognized the high value it provides - it would be tough to live without it.

Pros

Bettercloud was a life saver when we moved over to GSuite- the Google Admin just wasn't cutting it with all the features and needs we had, but Bettercloud provides everything we need.

Cons

The user interphase took a little getting used to, but once I located what I needed, it's been great

Ok tool, but Buyer Beware

Reviewed 5 years ago

I WOULD NEVER BUY FROM THEM AGAIN - BUYER BEWARE! We have a standard Google for Business domain, which they never fully integrated with. Most of their so-called tools, didn't work right and the one that did kind of work was the email monitoring, but even then, the users' email that you are monitoring is simply the tool sending you a TXT file of incoming and outgoing emails, it's can't un decrypt...

Pros

Cons

Horrible customer service Integration with the Google Domain was poor at best

BetterCloud Review

Reviewed a year ago

I have seen the evolution of BetterCloud from the beginning of the company and the product was many versions ago that only supported Google. The evolution of this product is allowing administrators to have overall insight into all of their SaaS apps. Companies today need to focus on business process improvement from a sys admin standpoint and BetterCloud is a key player in this for those who cannot afford tools that require heavy security and management.

Pros

This software is great for having a central management point for many of your SaaS applications. Currently, BetterCloud integrates with 60+ SaaS apps that are popular in today's world. The best thing about this is streamlining your onboarding and offboarding processes for all of these apps via workflows. System administrators have difficult times with many SaaS apps and understanding who has access to what. BetterCloud's workflows make it easy to do minimal amounts of clicks to de-provision users in a secure manner, confirm that data is not loss, and save on licensing.

Cons

I use BetterCloud a lot for Google Workspace administration. The tool is still lacking in some areas such as Shared Drives and using groups to control the access that hasn't been developed yet in BetterCloud. Google Workspace has stepped up its playing field with management via security groups and BetterCloud needs to do this as well.

BetterCloud, best Google support

Reviewed 4 years ago

BetterCloud is one, if not the best way to manage our Google Accounts

Pros

BetterCloud does most daily Google admin tasks from one place. BetterCloud makes it easy to reset Google passwords, update signatures, manage groups and so much more. Compared to the Google Admin Console, the interface of BetterCloud is much more user friendly. BetterCloud also integrates with other Google products, allowing administrators to update Docs, Sheets, Forms ect without ever logging into the users account. This is just the tip of the iceberg, BetterCloud makes it easy to create user accounts while applying company templates such as signatures. BetterCloud offers more complex functionality which as a user of 12 months, I haven't had to use myself yet. However, it is good to know that there is more to the product

Cons

One of the cons of BetterCloud can also be considered a Pro. BetterCloud is constantly updating and adding additional features, as a result, it can be hard to keep up with recent changes
