Google Cloud Apps Admins

5 Ways Google Apps Admins can #RocktheGSuite this Summer.

Hey!   We're co-hosting a #RocktheGSuite party on June 28 for Google Apps Admins in Austin with 30-3,000 users.  We'll have demos and discounts on G Suite migration software, G Suite Business and Enterprise upgrades, Jamboards, Chromebooks and Ringcentral for Google.   Read on to secure, switch, save and swing.

Whether you're an existing G Suite customer or considering a move to the apps, our Google certified Apps Admins save you time, money and headaches.   Our Google Apps Admins support IT teams and solution providers with everything in Google Cloud and rockin' integrations like Ringcentral and Hubspot.

 

1.  Run a Security Self-Assessment for G Suite

You can't rock the G Suite if your Google Apps domain is not secure.  I present some upgrade options below because the best security, privacy and data loss protection from Google comes in the form of G Suite Business or Enterprise.   First though, you can run a Security Assessment on your domain.    

Back in March, during Google Next, I shared our G Suite Security assessment spreadsheet.   Originally developed by the Google Apps team we've added some privacy points for you to consider.  Check out the article and request access to the Google sheet here:  A 73 Point Privacy and Security Checklist for G Suite Admins

2.   Transfer G Suite licenses to a Google Cloud Partner

I'm not saying we're the Tinder or Grindr of Google Cloud Partners, but let's just say we can make some quick introductions to G Suite partners that you'll fall in love with. 

Get a 10%-30% percent discount on G Suite licensing for one year.    There are lots of reasons Google partners offer licensing discounts.   Google, like any IT Channel Partner, offers resellers a margin and runs promotions from time to time.   Pricing discounts on G Suite generally vary based on the current promotion from Google.   The best price discounts on G Suite are available when you upgrade to G Suite Business or G Suite Enterprise.     Consolidate and archive old accounts and suspended users as part of the security assessment before you upgrade.

3. Deploy Ringcentral for Google

OK So we've locked down our G Suite deployment and saved money on licensing.   Now consider replacing that low hanging fruit already on your desk with a modern 100% Cloud based VoIP that will rock the G Suite, C Suite and end users.    

Not only does Ringcentral for Google rock, it's recommended for G Suite by Google.  Its slick Google integration lets you easily manage users and the IVR system.  Users can call, SMS (and fax back to the future) within Gmail as well as on iPhone and Android apps.    Hangouts scale up to 1,000 dial-in users.

Ringcentral plays well together with all sorts of integrations and an open API.   Migration headaches are eliminated by helping you coordinate a seamless on boarding and implementation service with Ringcentral for Google, Salesforce, Zendesk, ServiceNow or even O365.
