G Suite Business: A few new very compelling reasons to upgrade

Post date: Mar 14, 2017 12:21:27 PM

As Google Next 2017 event closed up last week, I have gather a few news among the many, where Google is showing their focus on your Business

The top 5 in my view, that will make you switch to G Suite Business (formerly Google Apps Unlimited)

1. Team Drives - a Drive space for each team / project

* The files owner is the Team, not each file creator user

* Quick access powered by machine learning

2. Drive File Stream - quickly stream files directly from the cloud to your computer

* No more Google Drive local syncing, on demand data stream from the Cloud to your local app

3. Vault for Drive, Teams and Groups - eDiscovery and retention / archiving solution

* As for Gmail, now including content retention for Drive and Team Drive files

4. Hangouts Meet and Chat - new enterprise ready communication tool

* 30-person easy access video conferences without accounts, plugins or downloads

* Virtual chat rooms for each team / project, fully integrated and searchable

5. Gmail add-ons - your other apps functionality within Gmail

* Expect your preferred apps (CRM, PM, Accounting, etc) coming to Gmail as "a card"
