Google Workspace: What plan is right for your business?
If you’re looking to start or upgrade your Google Workspace plan, choosing the right plan can be confusing. There are four plans to choose from and all of them offer different options with varying costs and benefits, and deciding which one will benefit your business the most can be tough. Here’s a quick guide to each of the plans to help you decide which one is best for your business or organization.
Get answers about pricing
As a business owner, you know that every penny counts. When it comes to choosing a Google Workspace plan, you want to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck. Here are a few things to consider when pricing out Google Workspace plans -How many people will be using this workspace on a regular basis?
- What features do you need (e.g., private phone number, call forwarding)?
- How many hours per day will employees be accessing their workspace from home or mobile devices?
- Do you need storage space and if so how much?
Narrow down your plan options
To decide which Google Workspace plan is best for your business, first consider how many users you need. The Basic plan supports up to 30 users, while the Business and Enterprise plans support an unlimited number of users. If you need more than 30 users, you’ll need to sign up for the Enterprise plan. For example, if you have 150 employees who need access to a single space or platform, the Enterprise plan would be ideal. On the other hand, if you only need five-10 people with access to a single space or platform then the Basic plan would suffice.
Choose the best location for you
There’s a lot to think about when you’re starting a business. But one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is where to set up shop. Choosing the right location can mean the difference between success and failure, so it’s important to do your research before making a decision.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a location for your business:
- The cost of rent and utilities.
- The availability of potential customers or clients.
- The proximity to competitors.
- The availability of public transportation.
- The crime rate in the area.
- The quality of schools in the area (if you have employees with children).
Determine how much space you need
If you’re just getting started with Google Workspace, the Basic Edition is a great option. It includes 30GB of storage per user and features like Gmail, Calendar, Docs, and Drive. If you need more storage or advanced features like unlimited cloud storage, live support, and advanced security, the Business and Enterprise editions are a better fit. To figure out how much storage you’ll need, consider how many employees will be using the account and what type of files they’ll be storing.
Use our tips to get started quickly
If you’re new to Google Workspace, the sheer number of options can be overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right plan for your business: – Assess how many users and devices will need access. Will all employees need access? Do they have their own device or do they share one with other employees? – Determine how much data storage space you’ll need. Is there any existing data that needs to be migrated or archived before it’s deleted from your previous service provider? How often do team members work remotely, and how often will they need an online meeting environment on demand at home or on the go? Does everyone in your organization use Gmail with G Suite productivity tools like Drive and Docs – if so, add 10% to account for this (or speak with an advisor).
