Why your Business should migrate from Conventional Email to G Suite

What’s the first thing which comes to your mind, if you are planning to start your own business.

“Customer” or “Client” would be an obvious answer.

Now to communicate to a client or customer, you need an email address from an Web Hosting Company.

However, did you know that you can easily get business email addresses with the exact same Gmail user experience that you and your staff have become accustomed to?

That’s where G Suite comes in. The email offering within G Suite is simply a business version of Gmail. No training is needed for current Gmail users.

You may or may not be fully aware of the extent of your free Gmail account functionality — but your Gmail accounts include Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Forms, Google Drawings, Google My Maps and Google Sites.

G Suite includes collaborative business versions of all of these and more.

Benefits of migrating to G-Suite

Ownership:

Your company owns all employee email accounts. Your employees don’t own them. Within G Suite administration, if someone leaves the company, you can also access all of that person’s email history. Similarly, with G Suite, all Google Docs, Slides and Sheets created by employees are owned by the company.

Document Sharing:

It’s easier to share documents with your team when you’re all on the same platform.

Group Email Address:

You can easily route emails sent to that type of address to multiple people or to a customer service system such as Zendesk, Freshdesk or Salesforce. There’s no additional cost for creating group email addresses. Also, you can add as many as you want.

Email Client Compatibility:

Email clients like Thunderbird and Outlook can be easily configured. Further, multiple email addresses can also be configured through a single Email client.

Storage Capacity:

For G Suite Basic, the storage capacity is 30 GB per user and your company can always choose to upgrade. There are various options available to choose from.

Extra Security:

G Suite has an important layer of security that can be enforced for all users, if the admin decides to do so. This layer is known as 2-Step Verification. With 2-Step Verification is particularly important if you decide to use Google Drive as the cloud backup standard for company PCs or your Macs. If employees are automatically backing up a lot of local files to the cloud, you never know what sensitive information might be getting synchronized.

CRM Integration:

G Suite is compatible CRM system called ProsperWorks. You can also synchronize G Suite components with Salesforce using Cirrus Insight.

Single Sign-On:

Users can be set up use your G Suite credentials to sign in to cloud business applications such as DocuSign, Marketo, Salesforce and Slack, without having to re-enter their usernames and passwords for these applications.

Custom Branding:

Instead of having the Google logo at the top left of your users’ screens, your company’s logo can be prominently displayed within all of G Suite.

Support:

With G Suite, there is 24/7 phone, email and chat customer support.

Easy Migration:

Keep in mind that you can easily forward your personal Gmail account to your business account. That way, whether people send email to your “old” account or to your “new” business account, all email will end up in your G Suite inbox.

Cost Effective:

G Suite does come at a cost: $5 per user per month.
