Why Google Workspace?

Yes, there are other office and productivity solutions out there, but none are as accessible and seamless as Google Workspace, especially when it comes to cross-platform support.

Workspace is seamless and convenient

For starters, Workspace is great for businesses of all sizes and especially perfect for small business owners, freelancers, and side hustlers who are, understandably, always on the go. To stay relevant in the market, continue scaling your business, and, frankly, meet your customers’ demands, you’ll probably be running all over the place, and if you’re not, you’re undoubtedly a busy bee. You need a business suite accessible anywhere, anytime, with seamless access, no matter your device.

Workspace delivers precisely that. With mobile apps available for smartphones and tablets, web access available on all desktops, laptops, and Chromebooks, and collaborative support for anyone through Google’s services, there are no strings here.

Workspace is brand-worthy and personalizable

Everyone wants their business to look professional and capable. Admittedly, that can be tough to do in such a competitive landscape. Big businesses will almost always do it better or at least make it look that way. Well, thanks to Google’s professional brand image tools and personalization support — like the ability to upload your company logo — you can integrate your brand’s style, something that’s not possible with generic free providers.

You can also use tied to your company’s name, which uses your business domain, to build customer trust further, strengthen brand identity, and look even more professional with something like you@yourcompany.com.

Workspace is collaborative and cooperative

Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and more are freely collaborative and exceptional for cooperating with clients and collecting feedback. Clients, customers, and colleagues can all jump into a document and edit in real-time, leaving suggestions for review, commenting and sharing, or working however they want — for example, if they need to download a local copy to work on.

However, all Workspace tools are collaborative, including scheduling, video conferencing solutions, and others. You only need a Google account to participate; for anyone who prefers to remain anonymous, that’s a possibility, too. You have complete control over the documents and content on the platform, meaning you can share with whoever you want or reasonably restrict access.

Workspace is scalable and simple to upgrade

As a cloud-based solution, it’s accessible from anywhere, completely scalable with your business, and there are no delays — it’s instant. You can add or remove users as you see fit and upgrade your plan to access new features and capabilities anytime. You don’t need any proprietary technology to take advantage of the various offerings, and as long as you or your team have a compatible device, the show will go on.
