Attending training by Encompass Innovate allowed me time to reflect on how to better utilise Google Sheets to support quality assurance functions of my role. Post-course Stephen immediately assisted to support my development of an overarching action log which would pull information from a number of sources / areas of activity to provide an up-to-date reference of outstanding actions. Previously, this was a repeated process to support the function of quarterly meetings and took time to manually collate information from a number of sources. It is clear that as activity generally increases, the knowledge I have gained from this course will allow me to focus on activity whilst automating the administrative aspects of the role. I am keen to expand this into other areas of my role! – Sandra, Business and Performance Manager, City and Hackney Safeguarding Children Partnership

The course has given me far more confidence and trust. – Traning Delegate, Sutton Council
The sudden shift to video meetings due to the pandemic forced organisations to rethink how their teams work together. Huge amounts of data and content often reside within multiple disconnected platforms, applications, and devices. This results in security and compliance issues as well as employees often struggling to find the accurate and most up-to-date versions of files.
Post pandemic, businesses will continue to be challenged with providing employees with quick access to information. The reality is that there will be no immediate return to the office and collaborative platforms will become central to a company’s ability to operate efficiently.
Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) is Google’s professional collaboration platform with an integrated suite of secure google apps, including communication tools. It is a cloud-based system allowing for easy collaboration from anywhere, on any device. Teams can effectively manage documentation by working together on the same single version of a document, spreadsheet, or slide.
Google uses one of the world’s most advanced security infrastructures to store information and data on the internet instead of on your computer’s hard drive or a company server that would usually be physically located in your company’s office.
While Google Workspace is not free, it starts as low as £4.60 per user per month for Business Starter, £8.28 per user per month for Business Standard, and £13.80 per user per month for Business Plus. Every plan includes Gmail, Drive, Meet, Calendar, Chat, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Keep, Sites, Forms, and Currents.
You can try Google Workspace for free, for 14 days to make sure it’s the right cloud software for you, before you commit.
Choosing the right plan depends on your business requirements. The size of your business, how many people you would like to have in one video meeting, and how much Google Drive storage that you need per person all come into play.
