Not only does Google Workspace simplify the everyday life of the end user, the IT can benefit from making the move too. When transferring legacy email servers and IT resources to Google, IT staff can free up a lot of time that can be spent on other tasks.
Easy to use, easy to implement
For a small business, switching to Google’s productivity platform can go relatively fast – in just one day, your organization and users can get started with the apps. There are loads of information and tools available that explain how companies can make the move themselves quickly and efficiently.
But if it’s that easy, why can’t the IT staff implement this themselves? Why do you need a reseller and what benefits can such assistance provide you and your business?
Let’s take a closer look.
The advantages of using a Google Workspace reseller
A reseller can offer professional and local support
One of the biggest benefits of purchasing Google Workspace through a reseller is access to professional and personal support during migration. By using a reseller, you can also put away the entire job and have the reseller handle the shift for you. This is especially useful for small businesses with smaller IT departments. Migration requires resources, careful planning and that is time not all businesses have. A Google Workspace reseller can contribute experience with the process, relieving stress and workload on the internal IT staff. This will also provide the best conditions for success.
Local resellers have the ability to provide a level of support Google does not have the capacity for. On-site direct support that can help you migrate users, teach corporate employees how the new platform works, and provide ongoing support and training can be critical to a successful outcome. This will also prevent the company from making mistakes that could have been avoided.
Partners can assist with training and support
You may not need external assistance to set up Google Workspace, but at some point maintenance and support needs may emerge. This is why most resellers offer support plans and training to make sure businesses are able to effectively utilize Google Workspace on a daily basis.
A reseller can relieve stress from the IT staff
Small businesses can benefit greatly from the simple set up of Google Workspace, but may not have a sufficiently large IT department available to plan and execute the software package change without disrupting the day-to-day operations of the business. A Google Workspace reseller with experience in migrating companies can make the shift with little disruption to normal business practices.
App setup and custom application development
Your business probably needs more programs than email and productivity tools like documents and spreadsheets. If you purchase Google Workspace through a reseller, the reseller can help you find other products and programs that integrate with the existing software you may have for accounting, billing, project management, etc. In addition, the consultant can help you build customised solutions and apps to meet specific needs and integrations of your company.
