Google has been quite busy this week with its developer conference Google I/O 2017. While the tech giant is hard at work in Mountain View, thousands of companies keep their businesses up and running thanks to Google G Suite.

G Suite is an all-in-one productivity solution for enterprises that gathers all the Google Apps in one place along with additional services. Some of the world’s most popular companies like Uber, Whirlpool, PwC, and others use the platform to manage their operations.

Alphabet’s main subsidiary is busy innovating in different fields, from its world-leading mobile OS to new platforms that will deliver mixed reality experiences. Google G Suite is a tool to help workers do their job better, and here is how to start making that happen.

Getting started with Google G Suite

From government offices and hospitals to bakeries and small startups, Google G Suite is a centralized solution that integrates the best tools available for productivity and the enterprise.

All users will get a 14-day free trial period for ten users upon registration, and from then on the billing plans may vary. Depending on the services you sign up for, Google may charge you double per user. Let’s take a look at what the standard G Suite gets you and your company.

For starters, organizations get the benefit of freeing themselves from software, as everything on the Suite is on the cloud. They can also create personalized email addresses associated with their site’s domain.

Now, here is the fundamental difference that sets G Suite apart from the regular Google Apps: whereas Google Apps are compatible with each other, the G Suite is seamlessly integrated to exploit these compatibilities.

Gmail, Calendar, Google+, Hangouts, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, and Cloud Search all come with support for smart functions. In this way, you can create an event in Calendar to remind you about a presentation you have to give made on Sheets and also send it via Gmail.

Who should use G Suite and how much does it cost?

New businesses, small companies, big enterprises, it doesn’t matter. G Suite serves workforces across a variety of industries including retail, manufacturing, technology, healthcare, and government.

Plans are all the same, and you pay only for what you use. The Basic G Suite program costs $5 per user per month, and it gives 30 GB of storage to each subscribed employee and access to all the productivity tools mentioned above.

For $10 per user per month, G Suite adds unlimited storage for all users if they are more than five and adds access to a new record-keeping tool called Vault. With Vault, administrators can automatically save sensitive information and enhance eDiscovery capabilities within G Suite.

An Enterprise plan is also available, and it offers support for more advanced security and analytics in the cloud. The signup price is not available, which suggests you have to contact Google directly to get a deal.

Google Analytics 360 Suite gets your business on the right track

While the Google G Suite is ideal for productivity, the Google Analytics 360 Suite is perfect for increasing your earnings and stepping up your game. It is essentially a very similar platform, except you absolutely must call Google to enroll.

It offers integrated services like Analytics, Tag Manager, Optimize, Data Studio, Surveys, Attribution, and Audience Center, which you can use alone or together to maximize the reach of your brand or the performance of your company.

Tools such as Google Surveys unlock the doors to massive online portals like Google Opinion Rewards, through which you can know how people feel about your product or whatever aspect of your firm you want to subject to the public opinion.

That, remember, is an entirely separate platform that requires a different subscription. It is also managed through a different Admin console, but both Suites together on the right hands are sure to make any business soar.
