Everything You Need to Know About GSuite for Business
A reliable infrastructure is the foundation for SMBs and SMEs, allowing them to provide services to customers and improve the daily workflow of their employees. In most cases, IT-staff have to deploy in-house servers and services to have such services, including email and collaboration tools like a messaging platform, file sharing, or company calendar. To squash server and software license expenses, Google provides a GSuite, an all-in-one service for such services.
GSuite provides centralized control of all corporate services in organization from IAM to Cloud file storage. Every employee can access their corporate email, calendar, chat, and file storage from anywhere at any time from any device.

Gmail’s groundbreaking features set it apart from any other email. For example, Gmail uses artificial intelligence software to offer smart spelling suggestions, finish your sentences, and even generate automatic replies based on the incoming email.
A Gmail address also serves as the gateway to other Google services that are included in GSuite for businesses.
