As a small business, you need to make the most of every minute and every dollar. Google Apps for Work offers a robust cloud-based platform for businesses of all sizes and can help you stay competitive in your industry. This modern solution provides a host of web apps and storage that will help your businesses succeed and prepare you for future growth. We’ve put together our top five reasons for making the move.
- Reduced IT expenses
Maintaining on-premise file servers can get costly, especially as your hardware begins to age and regular maintenance needs to be performed. Google Apps is entirely cloud based, which means you never have to pay for hardware upgrades or maintenance. Additionally, with the adoption of Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, you can eliminate costly Microsoft licensing fees.
- Increased Mobility & Productivity
Every minute you spend not working is costing your business money. With Google Apps, your data is updated in real-time, meaning no lengthy email streams or searching for the most recently updated document. Google Apps is made for collaboration and sharing. Add to that the ability to access your data from anywhere, at any time, and on virtually any device, and you’ll never be without your data.
- Reduced Downtime
On-premise servers often require routine software updates and have internal parts that can fail, causing your business to come to a halt. With Google Apps for Work, you’re guaranteed a 99% uptime.
- Increased Security
Google employs more than 550 full-time security and privacy professionals, including some of the world’s foremost experts in information, application and network security. Your users are protected through warnings and guarded from common threats, like email phishing. Spam is more easily detected and warnings are displayed when a threat may be present.
