What is Google Suite?

G Suite is Google's grand offering to help new and small business grow quicker and more cost-effectively. It sounds too good to be true, but even our team at Adhesion uses Google Apps because of how easily it streamlines our business processes.

All types of businesses have reportedly reduced their costs by moving all their employees onto G Suite. How? G Suite allows you and your employees to co-create, store and share documents, spreadsheets, slideshows and even websites!

And don't worry, G Suite works seamlessly with your favourite file types like Microsoft docs and email clients like Outlook. On top of that, you each get a 30GB online storage bonus, a professional email address (e.g. you@yourbusiness.com), 24/7 support and much (much) more. You'll all be able to work as a professional team from anywhere, at anytime.

Why is G Suite so popular?

The main reason a lot of existing NZ businesses are migrating to G Suite is because they are having problems with email. Included in G Suite is an enhanced version of Gmail for businesses.

At Adhesion, we get a lot of phone calls from businesses whose email has stopped sending or receiving emails. Often they have used up their email storage, their email account has been hacked, they have forgotten their passwords, and/or a lot of their emails have been deleted, permanently! Imagine trying to run your business without a working email.

With G Suite, your additional 30GB of storage is secure, and backed up. Google is also more efficient at storing documents so you won't use as much storage. However, if you do use up the extra 30GB, you can easily upgrade to unlimited storage for and extra $5 per month. You'll never need to buy more storage after upgrading. Your professional email has plenty of secure storage (it's also more efficient at storing email attachments so you'll need less storage).

Don't sit on the fence. If you really are serious about growing your business, or you are having problems with your email, Adhesion recommends you at least give G Suite a try.

How much does it cost?

No it's not free but it isn't expensive for what you receive. G Suite only costs USD$6 per user per month for the Basic option.

Not sure about investing? Don't worry, you'll get a free, no-obligation trial for the first 14 days. And, since Adhesion has close ties with Google, you will get 20% off for the first 12 months for new accounts that we set up.

Let's say you have a small sized business, and you want four of your employees to be able to co-create and manage your files online. For twenty dollars per month, your team will end up with 4 professional emails and 240GB of online storage (good luck using up all that storage). And if you sign up to G Suite via Adhesion, it will only cost sixteen dollars per month for your team of four.

GST is also now charged on all Google services in New Zealand.

How to use G Suite

Once you've signed up to G Suite, your domain and email needs to be connected. For most people, managing domains and email accounts can be really intimidating and confusing.

So, in Adhesion's mission to push NZ businesses forward into the future, we're offering a professional G Suite setup service.
