Having a G Suite Partner can serve you and business well, regardless if you’ve already made the migration to G Suite, or are still considering it. If you’ve already got G Suite, and are wondering what you could possibly want a G Suite Partner for, then have a look at our list below which outlines the reasons a G Suite Partner is beneficial for your business. A G Suite Partner is Google’s way of providing better attention, better support and better flexibility for you.
1. Local Support:
Google does provide free support for G Suite, but with their size and sheer number of clients, they are unable to provide you the detailed attention and flexibility that a local G Suite Partner could provide to you.
2. G Suite Partner Knows Your Business:
Having a local partner who also manages other IT aspects of your business means that they understand the context of your concerns and can provide the most relevant support for your needs.
3. Certified With Google:
Google provides training and certification in order to become a G Suite Partner, so you know your partner will be fully versed in all the ways to utilise G Suite for business.
4. Keep Abreast of New Features:
Google is forever rolling out updates and new features for G Suite, and keeping track of all the emails can be a lot. You can rely on your G Suite Partner to keep you informed of the important features and relevant updates that affect you and your business.
5. Train Your Staff:
A partner has the certification and knowledge to come in and train your employees on how to use G Suite in the way that you prefer for your business so that everyone is on the same page.
6. Maximise G Suite:
Your G Suite Partner is incredibly familiar with G Suite and all it’s functions, they can help you to get the most out of G Suite, using features you may not have been aware of or considered. This can help drive business in innovative ways.
7. Understanding Needs:
Google’s G Suite doesn’t have a solution for every need within your business, but your G Suite Partner can help you to find third-party applications that work in conjunction with G Suite to enhance your business.
8. G Suite Management:
When you have a plethora of accounts to manage within G Suite, it can be overwhelming and time-consuming. A good G Suite Partner can assist you with the best ways to manage your staff, using something like BetterCloud.
9. Cyber Security:
Your G Suite Partner can advise you on the best cyber security practices regarding G Suite, to prevent any accidental data breaches, or ex-employees having access to private data. A good partner can assist you to set up correct user access and privileges, or 2-step password authentication.
10. Migrate Data:
If you’re moving your business to G Suite, you want the transition to be smooth and efficient. Your G Suite Partner will ensure your email history is correctly transferred, along with calendars and contacts.
Having a G Suite Partner means you’ve got someone on your team, ready to manage your transition to G Suite, and assist you with any management you need. Your G Suite Partner, for example, can help you to manage accounts within the admin console, but they will not have access to any company emails or documents, so your privacy is maintained. You can even opt to restrict partner access so they can only manage billing.
Your G Suite Partner may offer you alternative payment solutions that suit you better than a regular credit card payment (for example, electronic transfer or Paypal).
