4 most overlooked aspects of Google Workspace

Many try to overcome the same challenges

Google Workspace is supposed to support and accelerate your business. However, this does not always happen as your busy day-to-day work and focus on the core business take precedence over the support functions. The lack of human resources does not help either. We know that many organisations are trying to solve the same problems in their Google Workspace environment.

Are you experiencing any of these 4 scenarios?

  1. Originally you started using Google Workspace and all was well, but since then, the updates and development of the environment have taken a back seat to matters of higher importance – such as the rapid growth in your company.

  2. Responsibility for Google Workspace maintenance falls on the shoulders of the IT team (or the only member of IT), and that is just one of their many duties. Simultaneously, the reality is that building up significant expertise and understanding all the usage and development possibilities of an entity as large as Google Workspace would be a full-time job for more than one person.

  3. Your organisation lacks the necessary expertise and resources to make full use of Google Workspace. In such case, comprehensive software administration, development, and user training end up being no one’s responsibility, and they often do not get done. Other technology solutions, such as Slack, suffer from the same problem.

  4. Before long, technologies and solutions that were supposed to support and accelerate the business become burdens.

Any of these scenarios sound familiar?

We have more than 10 years of experience with Google Workspace, and we have observed things that go unnoticed in almost every company.

Typical challenges for using Google Workspace effectively

  • The company has a sub-optimal number or mixture of different licences, leading to wasted money.

  • Overlapping IT services also waste money and clutter the IT architecture.

  • Information security is not monitored or subject to continuous improvement, giving rise to a significant business risk.

  • The company has no overview of how Google Workspace is evolving and how this will affect the company’s working practices, leading to lower work efficiency.

  • The company is unable to offer enough support and training to enable employees to make extensive and sensible use of the tools, further harming work efficiency.

  • The administrators in the environment need to do a lot of the legwork, eating up working hours on non-essential matters and leaving less time for effective work.
