Midsize Enterprises Can Get 'Back to Cool' and $10k in Apps and Services With This Google Cloud Promo.


The dog days of summer are here but in a couple of weeks most folks will have returned from summer adventures, rest and relaxation to begin the flurry of activity surrounding the return to the daily grind of work and school.  Here at Coolhead Tech we're taking our mandate of helping midsize enterprise IT Departments get "Back to Cool" with solutions like G Suite Business, Enterprise and Google Cloud Platform.

This summer the Google Cloud team and partners turned up the heat with new features, products and promotions designed to entice midsize enterprise IT Departments.  On G Suite or not, if you manage 50-5,000 users, learn how to take advantage of Google Cloud before end of year.

You're familiar with G Suite, right?   It's the re branded or "new version" of Google Apps for Work.  The cloud based software suite includes Gmail, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Google Drive for storage, Hangouts for Chat and meetings and my favorite, the most powerful Cloud Admin Console available.  

In the past Google Cloud and partners scoffed at even the perception of discounting.  Back in 2012,  In its first effort to better monetize their SaaS apps, Google discontinued the Free version of Google Apps and punished partners like Coolhead Tech, that offered what's now called G Suite Basic, at our Cost (20% off). 


Coolhead Tech's 2017 G Suite and Google Cloud Mid-Market Initiative 

Fast forward 5 years and the deals and promotions for G Suite Apps and Google Cloud are abundant as a small handful of active Google partners duke it out for new and existing license customers.

For new G Suite Business customers in the mid-market with 300 users or more, Google Cloud will help fund your migration and deployment costs to move to G Suite, up to $25 per user which pays for Coolhead's Apps Admins to perform a complete data migration and planning service.


For IT Departments locked into an Enterprise Agreement (EA), Google won't charge you for G Suite until your EA expires.  This eliminates any “double-payment” concerns.
