For a Chrome Device Admin, what's worse than KFC running out of chicken? Yup, you guessed it, Chrome OS having no available new devices to bring to the marketplace this spring. Things seem a little slower than normal for Chrome devices this year. While it's safe to say that the devices that already exist in the Chrome portfolio are impressive, they're just not enough to highlight the latest features and fantastic updates that Google's Chrome Operating System has to offer.
Every year Coolhead Tech and Google Partners migrate thousands of companies to G Suite Basic, Business and Enterprise. At first glance, Google's G Suite pricing is straight forward but most of the questions we receive relate to pricing and the cost of Google Apps and Services.
New G Suite customers are required to set up a premium subscription following the expiry of the free trial period of G Suite. Google bills active accounts at the beginning of each month. Companies enjoy access to a comprehensive set of services designed to boost productivity, collaboration and communication. In addition to three G Suite pricing packages, Google offers two billing plans from which to choose: the flexible plan and the annual plan.
G Suite provides access to a wide selection of apps designed to help organizations boost productivity. The services also allow entities to communicate and collaborate more efficiently. It comes as no surprise that thousands of small, medium and large organizations rely on the platform to improve operational efficiency. However, transitioning to the cloud requires proper planning. Doing so ensures that all employees are well-informed and prepared for the migration process.
Google Cloud creates many possibilities for businesses of varying sizes. However, migrating to the cloud requires a careful, organized approach. Change management best practices revolve around thoughtful guidance and communication.
Most G Suite Business customers are on Google Cloud's monthly Credit card payment plan. Others still choose to pre-pay for a year. Apps Admins who prefer to have more control over the payment process and not provide a personal credit card do have an option. Invoiced Billing Accounts are offered for G Suite by Google and Google Cloud Partners.
Google's free data migration service is designed to make it easier for companies to import old email to G Suite. The service states it can handle data for customers with a large number of users. It provides a simple way to import emails, calendars and contacts. G Suite migration can be performed in the Google Admin console. The service eliminates the need to install a client and set up is a breeze.
Google provides a practical way to add multiple domains to your company's G Suite account. The same applies to subdomains. Once you add an additional domain, you can choose to create new users at the domain. Alternatively, you can provide email addresses to existing users.
Sometimes it seems like tech folks have their own language. While G Suite Business Apps are easy to use and deploy there are terms used during the migration process which are rarely used in the course of regular business. Here's a breakdown on common terms used in migration to G Suite from Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Notes and other Email servers.
