We moved to Google Apps at the beginning of September, 2012 and have never looked back. The nicest surprises have been the new features added since then. Nicknames for Groups was the first and immediately solved a major shortcoming for us. The new compose window in Email is really nice. We have replaced an internal calendaring program with Calendar and while it does not do everything we could want, it certainly improves the user access. We use Docs for many things including sharing files. We have moved our ftp file transfers to Drive.
It was an good business decision and we have never looked back..
