Advantages of using g suite
G Suite offers a 99.9% SLA but usually exceeds it.
The Admin console for G Suite allows you to manage everything from one place- from adding new users and groups, configuring security settings (2-factor authentication), adding new custom domains, to enabling features such as Inbox by Google for your employees.
G Suite is built on Google Cloud Platform that boasts the highest security on the market.
G Suite provides email encryption in transit.
Gmail offers better integration with third party apps.
Most of your employees are probably already using Gmail and many of the other tools such as Google Drive, Calendar, and Keep. So the time taken to learn will be much less. All things considered, G Suite offers a one stop shop for email hosting, storage, and file collaboration that is perfect for any modern day business.

Advantages of Office 365
As Office 365 is integrated with Microsoft Office, it offers greater functionalities across all of the commonly used applications.
It offers robust security, compliance, administration functionalities as well as integration with other services.
Office 365 offers handy collaboration capabilities with tools like Microsoft Teams, Groups, Yammer, Delve, Planner, and Power BI.
It also comes along with advanced virus protection, rights management, and performance monitoring tools.
Office 365 is a natural fit for businesses that mostly use Windows-based systems.
While G Suite is designed as an exclusively cloud based suite of tools, Office 365 offers the desktop version of their products that are a temptation for many business users. The desktop version of tools such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. are feature packed and the corresponding ones offered by G Suite appear pretty basic in comparison. Despite the availability of cloud, many businesses prefer to create, edit and share files locally, which makes having desktop applications necessary and hence Office 365 becomes the default.
