More than Gmail and a calendar, G Suite offers powerful productivity tools that help over 3 million businesses worldwide.

Here are four areas where G Suite helps larger companies become more efficient and collaborative:

1. Connect

You may already be familiar with G Suite’s essential communications tools, such as Gmail and Calendar, but G Suite also offers other ways to stay connected. For example, you can take advantage of team messaging and video conferencing via Hangouts. With these tools, employees can dial into conferences from both office phones and mobile devices. This empowers employees to collaborate – no matter where they are located or which devices they use.

G Suite also enables companies to create private social networks for their employees via Google+. Employees can use the same features they are familiar with from other social networks, such as posting photos and leaving comments. However, G Suite’s security tools help you keep sensitive data private. For example, you can set privacy controls to choose what people can and can’t share on their G+ profile. You can also control access so that only authorized people within your company can view specific information.

2. Access

With G Suite, you can store your company’s files in an easily accessible, central location. For example, Google Drive offers secure cloud storage and file sharing. Employees can access shared files from any device. They also don’t need to worry about uploading large files, as G Suite offers unlimited storage with its Enterprise and Business plans.

G Suite also simplifies “access” via Google Cloud Search. With this tool, employees can take advantage of the world’s most famous search engine to find information within your company.

3. Create

G Suite’s Create tools make it easy for teams to collaborate from any device and platform. Employees can create files and then share them with team members for comments and editing. Since everyone views the same file, teams don’t need to worry about multiple copies, losing important revisions and feedback, or working with dated information.

The Create suite includes Docs, Sheets, Forms and Slides. It also offers Keep for note taking and Jamboard, a whiteboard app.

4. Control

G Suite is investing heavily in cloud security and makes it easy for companies to control access to their data. Through the Admin console, IT teams can add and remove users, configure devices and enforce security policies.

Vault allows IT teams to archive emails, databases and files. This not only frees up space but helps you retain records for compliance purposes.

You likely have employees who already use G Suite in their personal lives. These employees will enjoy using more of G Suite’s intuitive tools for business collaboration. And since they are already familiar with Google’s interface, they will have a fast learning curve and may not require training when you bring in new G Suite services.

To boost adoption rates even more, especially for users that aren’t as familiar with Google’s services, check out the G Suite Learning Center for free online training. Employees can learn how to use specific products, as well as get tips that will help them transition from other productivity tools.

You can also ease your move to G Suite by working with a partner who guides you through your set-up and configuration. Your advisor can also assist with email and data migration, so you can get up-and-running quickly and with minimal downtime.

G Suite has moved far beyond just calendar and email applications. With Google’s productivity tools, your team can easily collaborate from any device and location.
