4 Benefits of using G Suite
Tired of missing important communication from other departments or colleagues?
Feeling exhausted asking everyone to close out of the spreadsheet you need to open and edit so they don’t save over your changes?
How about simple email setups taking way longer than it should?
Once again, the Geeks & Creatives of wisnet will show you how to make your job easier.
Not too long ago, businesses had to find their own solutions for sophisticated email, expansive storage, collaboration and other digital communication needs. Today, G Suite (formerly known as Google Apps) offers a professional, scalable and affordable option for businesses of any size. A few of the reasons your company should be using G Suite: G Suite was born in the cloud and has been built from the ground up for security and performance for small companies and enterprise level needs.
1. Continuity and ownership.
The modern workplace is fluid. People come in on contracts then move to another position. About 25% of positions in businesses are associated with high turnover as individuals seek new opportunities. When people leave, it is important to ensure that you retain all of the content that they created for your company. With G Suite, it is easy to create automatic backups of work folders and files that would otherwise be stored on a local PC.
You also get continuity when people go on vacation or leave. Since you own the address, it’s easy to assign it to another person to ensure that customer emails continue to be answered in a timely manner. You can also change passwords to lock out potentially troublesome past employees and keep your communication secure.
2. Better email.
Gmail has more than one billion active users. There’s a pretty good chance that anyone you hire will not only be familiar with Gmail, but also able to use it effectively. With G Suite, you are not stuck with generic @gmail.com addresses; you can use all of the platform’s functions with email addresses at your own domain.
3. Easy collaboration and sharing.
Working on a project with people who are not all in the same place? Whether you are dealing with contractors, telecommuters or simply people who are not in the office at the same time; G Suite’s Google Drive offering is a great way to go. Multiple individuals can view and edit word processing documents, spreadsheets, presentations and more, all at the same time. You can also extend read-only access to people who need information in the document but do not need the ability to make changes.
4. Save more data.
When Gmail first offered a free GB of storage, it was an unheard of level of generosity. As our digital communications have become more sophisticated, they’ve gradually increased the size of a free Gmail box and now offer 15GB. However, regular backups of communications require far more than that. Because of this, the basic G Suite package offers 30GB per user, with the option to continue to scale up as your needs evolve.
It’s okay to say, “Wow!” after reading all that. Because with these and other benefits, we think G Suite allows you to keep your company’s information more secure while allowing easier and more collaborative ways to share and create it. The simple, intuitive and familiar interface means shorter learning curves and more time doing the things you do best. That’s a win-win. Or a win-win-win-win.
