Try Google Workspace.
If working remotely is hard, it's because your tools are not designed for remote working.
Here are symptoms that you need Google Workspace:
- Too many applications for different functions
- Zoom meetings with nothing accomplished
- Unable to collaborate with others
- Struggling to synchronize documents
- Too many file versions over multiple devices
- Hard to get IT support for my home devices
Google Workspace is a fully cloud-based office suite, designed specifically to empower remote teams.
Traditional Office applications need to be installed on a PC/MAC and the files reside on the local computer. With Google Workspace, all applications and all data are in the cloud. This has big implications.
When you work with Google Workspace...
Deployment is simple
Collaboration is seamless
Support is easy
Cloud-controlled Security is centralized
Managing emails and spam is effective
Most people today have a Gmail, some even have multiple accounts. It is generally accepted that Gmail is the most reliable email platform. It does an exceptional job at blocking spam emails.
Email search is fast (Hint: Compare against searching in MS-Outlook with over 1GB of messages). Instead of folders, you can label emails and an email can have multiple labels. You can schedule your email delivery, snooze an email and get reminders to return to it later. There is also a "confidential email" feature where it requires a passcode to reach or will expire at a certain date.
Mobile devices are secure

The Google platform is a cheaper ecosystem
When choosing an application, you should also consider the cost of computer hardware and support. You need a PC or MAC to run Microsoft Office. A brand new MAC Book costs at least MYR4,000+ (or US$1,300). A decent PC laptop costs about the same too. If you are on a budget, please consider using a Chromebook. It costs about a third of a PC laptop. Even more impressive is the lifespan of a Chromebook is about 6 years or more (a regular PC lifespan is about 3-4 years).
Forrester Consulting conducted a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examined the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying shared Google Chrome OS devices (e.g. Chromebook). The Google ecosystem is quite simply the more cost-effective solution. Read more
