Migrating to Google’s productivity platform – Google Workspace can be a smooth and fast transition; in just one day, your organisation and users can get started with the apps. This is largely due to the fact that it’s a cloud based platform that can be purchased over the internet and does not require any installation.
But if it’s that easy, why can’t your IT staff implement this themselves? Why do you need a reseller? What benefits can a reseller provide you and your business?
The advantages of using a Google Workspace reseller:
- Professional support
By working with a certified reseller, you can have the reseller handle the entire migration for you. Migration requires time, resources and careful planning. A G Suite reseller can contribute their successful experience with the process, relieving stress and workload on the internal IT staff. One of the biggest benefits of purchasing Google Workspace licenses through a reseller is that you have access to professional and personal support during the migration process. This is especially useful for small businesses with smaller IT departments.
Working with a reseller in the same time zone as you means you have access to a level of support that Google does not have the capacity for. On-demand direct support can help you migrate users, teach employees how Google works, and provide ongoing support. Training can be critical to a successful outcome.
Your organisation may not have a large IT department or available resources to plan and execute the software change without disrupting the day-to-day operations of the business. A reseller with experience in migrating companies can make the shift with little disruption. This means normal business practices can continue throughout the entire process.
- Custom applications
The reseller will likely be an expert in Google Workspace and can help you find other products and applications that integrate with any existing software you may use for accounting, billing, project management, etc. In addition, the consultant can help you build customised solutions to meet the specific needs of your company and customers.
- The subscription cost is the same
Purchasing Google Workspace through a reseller will cost the exact same as buying it directly from Google. You will get the same licence and basic support from Google.
