Comparison of GoFast with G-Suite Google Docs

CEO-Vision noted that a digital workplace tool must essentially be "Document Centric"; this means that collaborative and share functions must be designed around a DMS core but not in parallel.

This observation is the basis of the GoFAST concept !

This comparison focuses mainly on the differences in terms of collaborative and universal document management.

GoFAST does not include email / calendar capabilities, these elements cannot be compared. However, to solve these additional issues, we are working with our partner BlueMind, an alternative Open Source collaborative messaging solution to Exchange / Outlook.
