What are the benefits of Google Workspace What are the benefits for businesses using Gmail for Business?

6 Main Benefits for SMEs to Use Google Workspace:

1. No server is required (pay per use license)

In the past, companies had to set up their own server if they wanted their own corporate email. Now Google is offering Google Workspace, which is designed specifically for business use. SMEs are encourgaed to use Google Workspace, which indirectly helps SMEs reduce their financial burden.

2. Files ownership belongs to company

Some small businesses ask their employees to use personal Gmail accounts to save costs. However, the company does not own those email accounts and files. When employees withdraw, you may not be able to access the files and data. Google Workspace is therefore designed to help companies better manage user accounts and business data. (Please note the difference between Gmail and Google Workspace).

3. Create shareable link for easy files sharing

In the past, it was necessary to upload an attachment to the email, which then had to be downloaded to access the file, and usually a manual backup is required. Now Google can completely simplify these steps! The apps in Google Workspace, such as Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc., do not need to save a copy for backups because the data is automatically updated and stored securely in the cloud. When you want to share a file, all you need to do is send the shareable link and the other party can open the link to view, comment or edit the file according to the permissions you have given.

4. Access via any device (e.g. smartphone, tablet, etc.)

Google offers several cloud office tools, such as Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Calendar. Whether you are an Android or iOS user, you can download the app for free. As long as you log in to your account, you can access and edit your files anytime, anywhere!

5. Up to unlimited storage for each user

A personal Gmail account has only 15 GB, while Google Workspace Business Starter offers 30 GB of storage, including email and Google Drive. If you have more than 5 accounts for Business Standard, you can also use 2 TB of storage for each user, which is great for businesses that need to store large image files or videos. (To learn more, please refer to the Google Workspace Edition Guide)

6. Microsoft Office license is no longer required

In the past, Microsoft Office was one of the indispensable tools for any business. Now you can find the appropriate Office tool available in Google Workspace, such as Docs, Sheets, Slides and so on. Even if your clients still use Office files, you can open and edit them with Google Cloud Collaboration tools, which can save you a lot of costs for purchasing software licenses and updates.
