I would say Excel, but goggle sheets have some cool features. As mention before google sheets works across different platforms, like android. I know people who use google sheets with barcodes, with their android phones to do quick inventory tasks. Also google sheets plays very well with google forms, you can setup google forms for a survey and the results are instantly updated to google sheets. Once in google sheets you send a link to people in your group, they may view or edit the live survey in real time. Try doing that with the Microsoft office suite.
