What is changing?

In 2020, G Suite became Google Workspace as part of a mass reorganisation of the company’s apps for the “future of work.” Various plans were migrated over, and Google is now planning to transition the G Suite legacy free edition to Google Workspace as well. 

 

Why is this important?

After getting free Gmail, Drive, Docs, and other apps for the past several years, companies will need to choose a paid Google Workspace subscription to keep using Google services and the ability to use their own custom domain.

All companies need to switch until June 1 or alternatively Google will start automatic transition after 1st of May and make the change to Google Workspace, which you can use at no cost until August 1, 2022. After August 1st all customer accounts without a valid payment method will be suspended.

Upgrading to Google Workspace takes just a few steps with no disruption to your users.

The new Google Workspace offerings are designed to fit your specific business needs.

Google Workplace plans start at 5.2euro/user/month for its Business Starter option, with Business Standard (10.40euro/user/month), and Business Plus (15.60euro/user/month), providing an increasing level of services and security controls with each plan.

Consider working with a Google Workspace partner.

We work with multiple clients who’d outgrown the Legacy edition and needed to upgrade to Google Workspace. We can help your organisation to choose the right Google Workspace plan and provide non-standard discounts, balancing between features and budget. 

Not only that, but when working with an authorised Google Cloud partner you can benefit further by getting personalised support, strengthen your security and get additional payment options such as Bank Transfer or Credit/Debit card payment.
