It’s Time to Switch to G Suite for Email and Business Tools
Just in case you were wondering what G Suite is, it’s kind of a mega-enhanced Gmail. With Gmail, the email service is ad-funded and therefore free, but you have very little technical support and you have no control over your data.
G Suite gives you the same collaboration and productivity tools as Gmail, but they’re all in one place and you can offer universal access to all your teams and employees through Google Admin Console. Through this console you can add or remove users, manage devices, set up security, groups, verification steps and enable a BYOD culture at work.
You can also use your company domain name and customise email addresses so that you actually look professional!
You’re probably wondering if it’s time to adopt G Suite for your company. It is, and here’s eight reasons why.
You own all the email accounts
Your company owns the accounts, not your employees, If someone leaves, then you change the password and set their emails to redirect to you or someone else. You can also look into the email records and history.
You own all the files
When you use G Suite, you own all the Google Docs, Sheets and Slides that your employees create. You can, if necessary, have a policy that means your employees have to back up their local PC folders and files to the company Google Drive so you have full access.
You can all share documents
When you’re all on the same team, you can all share the same G Suite account. You can give everyone access to the same Google Docs with just a few clicks.
You can re-route emails
You can forward emails from one address to a variety of others – HR, sales, interns – for no extra cost and with no hassle of creating new groups.
All this and extra security too!
G Suite has an extra layer of security – 2-step verification – that can be used or not at your own discretion. If a user logs in from an unfamiliar PC or laptop, then you can ask them to punch in a verification code that’s been texted to them.
You can use the CRM integrations
You might decide to use a CRM system to keep track of customers, tasks, leads and so on. G Suite can synch with all the leading CRM platforms and solutions.
You can use your own branding on the UI
As much as you all love Google, you love your own logo better so you can replace the Google logo in the top-left with your very own!
There’s great support
You can email or phone for direct support, while indirect support can be had from the Medium Channels if you’re looking for general tips and updates.
