Why would I consider paying for Google Workspace if I can use many features for free?
The simple answer is that Google Workspace gives your company more features and control, enabling you to secure documents and data, collaborate more successfully, and take use of cutting-edge features and programs to make your teams more effective than ever.
Instead of just using a free Gmail account, you should upgrade to a paid Google Workspace account for at least three reasons:
Google Workspace can be set up to use the domain name of your company. By doing this, emails you send will be from your domain rather than a gmail.com address (example: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Google Workspace gives you the ability to centrally manage accounts, so you can add or remove user accounts as new employees come on board or depart from your company.
An administrator can improve security settings to require longer passwords, two-factor authentication and limit external sharing, among many other options that reduce the risk of undesired data leaks.
What’s included with Google Workspace (formerly G Suite)?
Similar to G Suite, all Google Workspace plans provide a custom email for your business and include collaboration tools like Gmail, Calendar, Meet, Chat, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, and more.
