Google Workspace (formerly G-Suite) provides cutting-edge features which enhance productivity and efficiency. There are several office productivity suites out in the market. So what makes Google’s so great?
In this blog, we are sharing the top 10 reasons why you should choose Google Workspace for your business. It’s the preferred brand of cloud-based business solutions as it is used by over 2.6 billion people all over the world.
1. DOCUMENT SHARING
Collaboration is the key to success within your small business. With Google Workspace you can easily share your files with fellow team members in your Workspace account using Shared Drives. The author can control how their files can be accessed: whether it’s view-only, comment, editing permissions or full access.
2. INCREASED FILE STORAGE
File storage is becoming a problem within big corporations down to small businesses. Mailbox storage tripled in size over the last three years as users need to share larger files, and retain and search through more data. Google Workspace users can store massive amounts of data in the cloud. They get up to 30GB of cloud storage unlike with limited physical devices. This enables teams to collaborate, upload large files from photos to documents, and innovate together from anywhere in real-time. Use Google Drive every day to collaborate on press and product releases, notes, sales reports, blog posts, promotion mechanics, office updates, and dozens of other documents.
3. CUSTOM DOMAIN NAME
Customise your team’s business email (email@example.com). There is no such thing as a small business when you have strong branding. Helping promote your company by having your own domain name will build trust and credibility with your customers and community.
4. MANAGE YOUR TEAM’S EMAIL ACCOUNTS AND FILES THAT ARE OWNED BY THE COMPANY
If an employee leaves your company, you can control and access the employee’s email in Google Workspace and their files (Google Docs, Slides, Sheets). If individuals leave the company, the admin or the owner has full access to their data, unlike regular email accounts. While those who leave lose access to the files, team access continues uninterrupted.
5. MULTIPLE EMAIL ALIAS AND DOMAINS
You can create up to 30 email alias or domains that can be redirected to the preferred email account.
6. SINGLE SIGN-IN
Google Workspace enables a single sign-in for other cloud-based business applications such as DocuSign, Salesforce etc. This takes off the mental load of remembering multiple logins.
7. CUSTOMISED USER INTERFACE
You can customise the user interface by placing your company logo instead of the Google logo, making it a more personalised experience for you and your team.
8. SEAMLESS EXPERIENCE ACROSS DEVICES
Signing in is simple, regardless of whether you are operating on Microsoft, Mac or Android. Google Workspace allows users to store and share in the cloud, synchronizing files across all your connected devices, and connecting you in real-time.

Teams could access Google’s powered business tools on mobile devices as required. Connecting employees, partners, and customers face-to-face improves responsiveness to queries.
9. ADDED SECURITY
Work securely anytime, anywhere. Google Workspace has added 2-step verification for users. If you log in to Workspace or other related applications using another computer, Google will text you your verification code which you would input to the verifier. This is very important in securing the cloud backup particularly if it contains sensitive files.
10. 24/7 SUPPORT
Google has 24/7 support for their Workspace users. You can access the support team by phone, email or through their chat option. For further instructions on contacting Google support, see here.
