Pros and Cons of top-rated Email Service Providers

Make an informed decision with the right information

Some of our clients prefer Thexyz email platform over the others because it is a professional email system for a low monthly cost compared to the other options. It has lots of storage for email and attachments, and can include, depending on the plan, synchronization of contacts, calendars and cloud storage. If you or your business is still using a consumer email account ending in rogers.com, sympatico.ca, yahoo.com or hotmail.com, try Thexyz. Thexyz email platform is a step up from these standard personal email accounts, has no ads and is perfect for professionals and SMB’s who want better email but cannot justify the cost of the other options. Plans start for as little as $1.95 CAD/month per account.

Pros

  • Comparably the lowest cost
  • Plus a 15% recurring discount through 1CS
  • Exclusive access to customizations
  • 100% Network uptime

Cons

  • MS Office apps not included
  • Fewer add-on applications to choose from
  • Basic plan does not include mobile sync or cloud storage

A number of our clients prefer the Exchange email platform because it is a robust email system designed for business., comes with some of the features of Office 365 and the rest can be added on. Each plan includes synchronization of contacts and calendars across multiple devices, plenty of storage and other bells and whistles including Outlook. Business also like that Exchange can be deployed in different ways including via Microsoft Exchange Server, Hosted Exchange, Cloud Exchange and on-premise server. Companies looking for a top-of-the-line email product will often choose an Exchange or Office 365 product. It costs more but you can do so much more. Plans start for as little as $9.45 CAD/month per account.

Pros

  • Backed by Microsoft
  • Support by 1CS
  • High degree of controls
  • 100% Network uptime

Cons

  • Higher cost per mailbox
  • Cannot host Exchange and IMAP accounts on the same domain
  • Getting support from Microsoft could be tough

Many of clients prefer Office 365 over Exchange as it is also powered by Exchange and designed to keep a workforce connected but comes bundled with many of the features which would need to be added onto an Exchange product. There are a number of subscriptions to choose from including plans which include the Microsoft Office suite of applications. Office is often the reason for choosing Office 354 for business. The applications are needed so many businesses choose Office 365 because it comes with Office. They also choose it because it comes bundled with many other features and depending on the plan you choose, it can cost less than Exchange. Plans start for as little as $7.61 CAD/month per account.

Pros

  • Includes Microsoft Office apps like Word and Excel
  • Collaboration tools from Microsoft
  • Integrate with just about anything
  • 1TB of Cloud Storage

Cons

  • All users tied to same platform
  • Products bundled as one
  • Tiered support

​G Suite is Google’s email platform for professionals. It compares to Office 365 and Exchange in that it is designed for business. Many of the features and tools found in the other options can be found in a G Suite plan.  Companies often choose G Suite because they like Google products and services including Google Drive and Google Calendar, are familiar with Gmail or Google has a feature which the other options don’t have. G Suite is one of the more expensive options, but you get what you pay for, and those who use it, like it. G Suite is totally web-based, there are no options to open Gmail from your desktop. Businesses looking for a top-of-the-line product will consider G Suite. Plans start for as little as $8.78 CAD/month per account.

  • Intelligent Data at your fingertips
  • Edit and manage documents on the go
  • Join Video Calls from Anywhere
  • High degree on controls

Cons

  • All users tied to same platform
  • Apps may require online access
  • High cost per mailbox
