G Suite has become Google Workspace, and despite the name change, businesses are still getting access to all the best office productivity tools that can ensure that you can collaborate and communicate in the best way with your teams. There are several different plans available, and Google even has special pricing for nonprofit organizations (see our guide on Google Workspace for Nonprofits here).
Of course, if you have a for-profit business, access to all of Google’s best tools doesn’t have to cost a fortune, either. Choosing the right plan starts with knowing what your options are. Every Workspace plan includes all of Google’s best tools, apps, and platforms, including:
Plus, you’ll get a custom business email address that includes premium security and management controls, Google’s trusted support, and so much more. Let’s take a look at each of the available plans separately so that you can see what your options are.
For businesses, there are four options for packages, offering various prices and features for companies of different sizes and needs. Their fourth and final package is the Enterprise option, which allows you to essentially customize your solutions and get custom pricing, too.
At about $6 per month, per user, this is the most affordable business option for Workspace. This plan allows you to have up to 100 participants in video meetings and comes with:
This plan is double the cost of the Starter package, but you get a lot more for your money here, too. It costs $12 per user each month, and the Standard plan comes with that custom business email, but ups the features to include:
The Business Plus plan takes things up another notch, providing you with even more access for your business teams at about $18 per month, per user. In addition to everything offered thus far, the Plus plan includes:
At the Enterprise level, you can essentially create the perfect package for your business when using Google Workspace. It comes with all the features of the Business Plus plan, as well as:
You do have to contact sales for pricing on this plan, but it’ll be a conversation worth having because even their Enterprise rates are generally designed to be affordable for the modern business. Legacy customers that have upgraded report prices around $20-$30 per user, per month depending on the level of the plan (Standard or Plus).
If you’re considering this platform for your business communications, you’ll probably want more to consider besides the fact that “it’s Google” and everyone already knows how to use it. However, we do have to reiterate that selling point because it’s one of the biggest ones—what’s easier to implement than a system people are already comfortable with? Even if they haven’t used all the tools, the skills translate easily and they’re familiar with the way Google operates in general.
Some other perks of using the Google Workspace platform include:
Once you figure out your needs, you can compare them to the available Google Workspace plans and ensure that you get what fits your needs and your business budget.
