Earlier this year Refractiv attended The Future Assistant Conference where our Senior Consultant took to the stage to speak about ‘Making the most of G Suite’. This blog will allow you to dive a little deeper, helping you to make the decision – Is G Suite right for my business?

Why do millions of Businesses use G Suite?

What is G Suite?

G Suite is a professional set of tools by Google that allows you to work from anywhere. This was formerly known as Google Apps.

G Suite is reliable, secure, web-based “Software as a Service” with powerful, intuitive applications like Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Drive. It can help you reduce IT costs, manage information more effectively and enable employees to collaborate wherever they are.

Take a look at some of the business benefits designed for your workplace:

  • All the storage you need
  • 24/7 live support
  • Advanced admin controls
  • Mobile device management
  • Easy data migration

G Suite – Work Reimagined

G Suite is designed to be smart, simple, and secure. Watch this team complete the impossible task with the power of G Suite’s collaboration and productivity tools.  

Who can use G Suite?

Any business or professional who wants to use email, store email data, documents and folders on a cloud server, utilise online chat and video calling, or someone who simply wants to work together and improve communications and productivity, can take advantage of G Suite and the many features it has to offer.

Customers can buy G Suite licenses for any number of users, whether it’s 1 license, 10, 100 or 1000 or more, there’s no limit. For more information on prices and to find out more on the different G Suite editions, take a look at this article: Which G Suite Edition is right for my organisation?

How does it work?

Make decisions faster, face to face.

Use shared calendars to see when others are available and schedule meetings with automatic email invitations.

With one click, turn your meeting into a video conference from any camera-enabled computer, phone or tablet.

Share your screen to review your work as a team and make decisions on the spot.

Collaborate in real time

Easily work on documents, spreadsheets and slides across your devices, with or without the Internet.

Work on a single document with team members or people outside your company. See edits as others type, communicate through built-in chat and ask questions in comments.

Several people can work at the same time, and every change is saved automatically.

Store and share files in the cloud

Keep all your work in one place with secure access from your computer, phone or tablet.

Quickly invite others to view, download and collaborate on any file – no email attachment needed.

File updates are automatically saved and stored in Drive, so everyone can always have access to the latest version.

Secure your data and devices

Protect your company’s data with security options such as 2-step verification and single sign-on, and use mobile management to keep your data safe in the event of a lost device or employee turnover.

Archive email messages and on-the-record chats, and control how long they are retained for.

Easily configure security settings from a centralised administration console, and call or email Google support for help 24/7.
