Conclusion 1

Google Sites integrates natively with G Suite

Since it’s a Google app, it integrates seamlessly with the rest of G Suite – except for Analytics. Unfortunately it doesn’t have a mobile app, so you can’t access it from any device with ease.

Conclusion 2

Google Sites only works for static information

As it has no social capabilities, it won’t increase employee engagement. It’s still a useful tool to inform them of new developments.

Conclusion 3

Google Sites is a fast way to get an internal website up

If all you’re a G Suite user and all you need is an internal-only website, Sites works well. It’s an easy-to-use, lightweight CMS that allows you to publish static information without a hassle. It lacks the necessary features to be called a social intranet, a digital workplace or a true collaboration platform.

Just static information won’t cut it. Engage your employees
