Harness an all in one Google ecosystem of solutions and differentiate from your competitors

23 February, 2021

As the business landscape continues to shift, one thing remains the same – businesses still rely on a staggering number of applications to get the job done. 

Although many organisations have invested in the cloud, IT professionals are still stuck administering systems manually. A repetitive, time-consuming task. 

On top of this, devices are being targeted by cybercriminals at a rapid rate, adding urgency for security with internal vulnerabilities creating uncertainty. 

The pressure to upkeep productivity and maintain collaboration in 2020 emphasised the need for fewer, simpler and smarter tools that do more. 

As IT professionals are challenged to keep up with evolving business demands; they are looking for a fast, worry-free and impactful solution that is also cost-effective.

Journey into the cloud 

Did you know that 80% of the global workforce is now deskless? That’s 2.7 billion people around the world according to Emergence

And in a post-pandemic world, the way we work has also changed with more of the workforce shifting to a remote work set up. 

Enter the cloud worker 

With this rise in SaaS adoption so too has there been a rise in a new type of worker – the cloud Worker. These workers operate in a world where their workspace is in the cloud and can be accessed anywhere, on any device.

Workspace collaboration just got better

Google Workspace, an integrated suite of cloud productivity applications is used by over 2.6 billion users, includes all of the productivity apps you know and love — Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and many more – all together in a single place. 

On 8 December 2020, we were proud to partner with Google to add Google Workspace to our solutions offering. Whether you’re at home, at work, or in the classroom, it’s a convenient way to create, communicate, and collaborate even if you need to access non-Google documents.

They also allow you to link content and gain easy access to files without having to switch between the apps. For example, starting today, you can also open Office files for editing directly from a Gmail attachment, further simplifying your workflows.
