Why migrate to Google Workspace?
At the core of Google Workspace is Gmail. You can try out Gmail and apps like Docs and Sheets free of charge. As a small business, it is possible to run your business using the free version of Gmail, Docs and Sheets. However, a minor upgrade to the basic Google Workspace package will allow each of your team to have their own email address at your company domain which can be managed separately. You can even migrate all of your emails from previous Outlook accounts into Gmail so that you can go back and search your email archives from one place.
Google Docs & Sheets
The main appeal of Google Workspace is its simplicity. The free versions of Docs and Sheets are more than enough for the average business user, allowing you to easily create and edit documents and spreadsheets. Google doesn’t try to introduce features just for the sake of it, they only do when they know an improvement can be made. The collaboration features within Doc and Sheets are a case in point, which anyone who has tried to collaborate using Microsoft Office products will appreciate.
Collaborate with Cloud Computing
Since Google Workspace is truly cloud-based, it doesn’t require you to install any software on your PC or Mac. And just because your colleagues or clients use Word and Excel doesn’t mean that you need to as well. You can now edit Microsoft Office documents without needing to convert them to Google Docs. Teams can use Google Calendar to manage projects and deadlines with multiple people working on the same documents at the same time.
Unlimited Storage with Google Drive
Live documents are stored on Google Drive along with your email and photos. How much cloud storage your company uses will depend upon the type of business, businesses that use a lot of videos will require much more space than those that simply need cloud storage for email. Business plan users may find that they run low on the 30GB that come with their package. However, there is a number of low-cost options to provide all the space that you need including unlimited Google Workspace storage. The main reason to choose Drive above other storage options like DropBox and OneDrive is the search functionality which allows you to search for content contained within your documents.
Run your Business using Google Workspace
As a small business, in the past, you had to use Microsoft Office alongside G Suite to get all of the functionality you needed. Today that’s no longer the case, it is possible to run a business using Google Workspace alone. There may be features that you like in Microsoft Office that means you still use both but the cost of Google Workspace makes it a very attractive standalone option.
What is Google Workspace?
Google Workspace is a collection of software products and collaboration tools developed by Google. It was previously known as Google Apps until it was rebranded in 2016. Google Workspace services are broken down into the following categories:
- Connect: use these tools to meet, share and talk to your colleagues and clients
- Create: everything you need to create brilliant projects and make things happen
- Access: store your files for instant, easy access
- Control: set up users and give them secure access to the information they need
Google Workspace is used by startups looking for professional software services, SMEs wanting to get more done by keeping things simple and by large organisations with thousands of employees managing worldwide projects.
