Google estimates that over 5 million organizations use Google Workspace to connect, collaborate, and work efficiently. If you’ve decided that your organization is ready to join this group, it’s time to make the switch.
Buying Google Workspace licenses is just one of many steps you need to take to implement Workspace. For that reason, many companies work with a Google Partner to purchase and integrate this productivity system to make the process as easy as possible.
Google Workspace Licenses
The first step in integrating Workspace is to choose a plan. Then, you can give users licenses to access services like Google Calendar, Gmail, Docs, and Meet.
So how do you choose a Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) plan that works best for you? Let’s take a look at what each edition of Workspace offers:
Google Workspace Business
Google Workspace Business plans provide professional office tools to drive collaboration and productivity for small to medium-sized businesses.
Business plans offer access to popular Google Apps like Gmail, Meet, Calendar, Docs, and Drive as well as security and account management controls. Available plans include Business Starter, Business Standard, and Business Plus. Storage capacity, user limits, and additional features scale with each plan.
Google Workspace Enterprise
Google Workspace Enterprise plans offer Google’s most advanced security, management, and online storage features for large organizations.
Enterprise plans provide premium features like unlimited storage, auditing and reporting, data loss prevention, and full access to all Google Workspace Apps as well as Google Vault. Available plans include Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, and Enterprise Plus. Additional premium features scale with each plan.
Google Workspace for Education
Google Workspace for Education provides a set of Google tools tailored to optimize learning in today’s educational environment.
Education plans provide access to educational tools like Google Classroom, Google Meet, and Google Docs as well as advanced features like attendance tracking and administrative controls.
Available plans include Education Fundamentals, Education Standard, Teaching and Learning Upgrade, and Education Plus.
When you buy your Google Workspace licenses from a Certified Google Partner, you can trust that your organization is receiving more than just productivity tools. You’ll pay the same price for your licenses as you would purchasing them directly from Google but you'll receive plenty of extra services and support.
In fact, there are lots of benefits to working with a Google Partner like Promevo.
