Don't Miss Out on Summer: Here's how to Get More G-Suite for Less in June.

apps admin blog (5)When you first started your cloud strategy, you probably thought that the basic plan on G-Suite was enough to launch you into the stratosphere. After all, maybe you didn't have that much data to worry about, or you were looking into keeping most of your activities on-premise at first. Of course, as your business started to grow, you may have discovered that your cloud needs to be developed with it.

If your company is still on G-Suite Basic in this highly competitive and agile landscape, then you could be missing out on an incredible opportunity for growth. That's particularly true if you don't get ahead of the curve and take advantage of the deal that's currently available until the end of June. The upgrade to G-Suite Business available now is amazing value for money. If your company already relies on G-Suite for effective collaboration and communication, then G-Suite can easily save you cash by moving away from the traditional on-premise technology many mid-size enterprises still use.

By upgrading to G-Suite for Business, you can gain access to even more of the benefits associated with cloud computing with Google, for a seriously low price. Why upgrade? The benefits include:

  • Enhanced data protection and security

  • Archiving and retention to reduce hassle and risk

  • Unlimited storage options


Summer is the Time for Savings with G-Suite

So why is summer the perfect time for G-Suite savings? Well, everyone's favorite search engine giant is offering customers an opportunity to upgrade from their G-Suite Basic setup to G-Suite Business and save a massive 33%. How do you qualify? All you need is to be running G-Suite basic already with at least one user, and the ability to upgrade before the 30th of June. You'll also be able to upgrade during your renewal if you're on an annual plan, and if you're on the flex plan, you can upgrade at any time.

The deal is 18 months for the cost of 12 months - which means you get 6 months for absolutely free. Additionally, if you don't want to be tied in for that long, you can always take 15 months for the cost of 12 months instead. When you upgrade to G-Suite Business, everything is discounted on a monthly basis. Of course, that amazing deal can't last forever; it expires on the 30th of June. That means that you have less than a month to take advantage.

The good news is that there's no minimum or maximum seating requirement for the upgraded G-Suite pricing plan, all you need is an online contract. If you have G-Suite Basic plus the Google Vault add-on, you'll still be eligible for the promotion, and Vault will remain on your account too.


What Will You Get by Upgrading to G-Suite Business?

An upgrade to G-Suite Business is exactly what it sounds like. It gives you all the tools you need to run a great business environment. This includes unlimited file storage, unlimited emails, and countless opportunities to grow your organization in the cloud. When you switch from Basic on the current upgrade plan, you'll get:

  • Unlimited Storage: Stop worrying about quotas and make the most of your G-Suite experience. You can save on everything from Box to Dropbox expenses, and focus on keeping all your files in the same place.

  • Audit and Security Controls: Advanced auditing capabilities help you get to the information you need most when you're trying to protect your organization. You'll get the details you need to investigate breaches with ease and manage any security threats or trends that come your way. This can save you a lot of cash on security tools and support.

  • Archiving tools and eDiscovery: These tools are a crucial component for regulated industries. They offer fantastic peace of mind and ensure that you're ready to maintain your records safely for the future.

  • Constant Access to Google R&D: You don't have to be a Google expert to know that this company invests a lot of time and money into revamping their tools and offering the customer the best experience possible. They recently introduced things like the revamped site tool and the Springboard to help organizations expand their online presence.

  • Open APIs and the GCP: Finally, G-Suite Business gives you more openness to explore your cloud capabilities. You can tie your various systems together through the cloud, access the GCP for your storage needs, and enjoy all the benefits of added solutions like machine learning and data analytics. The result is more extensibility and greater resiliency for all.


Taking the Next Step: From Business to Enterprise

It's clear that the upgrade to Business is worthwhile for many mid-sized enterprises - particularly when you can take advantage of this exceptional summer deal. However, what about when you need even more functionality than Business can offer? There's a step up too, in the form of G-Suite "Enterprise" edition. This is specifically designed for larger companies who want advanced functionality options like high-level meetings, protection from data loss, and more.

While G-Suite Business is the next step in taking your company further in the cloud, G-Suite Enterprise is the best you can get from Google. As well as getting everything you would expect from the Business version, you also have access to:

  • Enhanced Google Drive security: Add an extra layer of security to your cloud experience to protect sensitive information in your network.

  • Scan email traffic for any sensitive information or content that you need to protect, including social security numbers and credit card information.

  • Analyze images for text and mitigate the loss of confidential data in those scanned pictures.

  • Evaluate your G-Mail logs in Google BigQuery, with advanced and enhanced query customization.

  • Ask for security keys when users want to sign into their accounts.

  • Use S/MIME encryption to improve email security.

  • Automate your mobile management with custom rules that are triggered when suspicious events take place.

The great thing about G-Suite is that there's something for almost every business need you can think of. You can also purchase different licenses and assign them to users however you choose, which means that you can spread usability throughout your business more evenly. If you've been considering a G-Suite upgrade, now's the time to make the switch. Fortunately, Coolhead Tech is here to help you get the most of your Google experience.
