What's better: Google Sites or Yallhands for people operations

A free cloud intranet may cost you much more in the long run.

Google Sites is a free tool with Google Workspace (formally G Suite) that allows anyone to create websites using templates. It's a quick and effective way to stage an internal landing page to share links and content. A great example is for educators to post curriculum and assignments.

What Google Sites does best: Sites offers templates and builder tools make it simple for anyone to create pages that look great and are responsive on mobile devices. Permissions to each site can be customized, so this product excels at building internal resource pages. It's also free for customers already using Google Workspace.

What Google Sites doesn't do so well: Google Sites' simplicity works against it the moment a project starts to add complexity. For example, page-level permissions are impossible, and any additional functionality needs to be embedded or manually coded. Many fundamental features for people operations, such as staging content, employee records, and segmentation, are not possible in Google Sites without extensive development.
