Total has become accredited as both a Google Workspace Partner and a Google Workspace Education Partner, enabling it to help and support customers that want to adopt Google Workspace.
Google Workspace, the revised name for its G Suite service, is Google’s alternative to Microsoft 365.
“There’s a lot of interest in Google Workspace, especially in the education sector,” explains Total’s Alliances Director, Simon Ashall. “It’s important for us to become an accredited Google Workspace Partner so we can provide customers with the level of help and support they want from us.”
As well as being a Google Workspace Partner, Total has also achieved sector-specific accreditation as a Google Workspace Education Partner. Both required technical and sales staff to become individually certified in Google Workspace.
Google Workspace includes business email and shared calendaring services, online storage, with both shared collaboration and personal storage, productivity apps for documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, and corporate communication tools, such as messaging, online meetings, and video conferencing. It also provides a management interface, which includes compliance and archiving as well as security features like two-factor authentication.
“We’re also seeing growing interest in Google Workspace from large, well-known organisations,” adds Simon.
Outside of education, existing Google Workspace customers include furniture retailer DFS, Hackney Council, Kingston London Borough Council, Manchester City Council, supermarket Morrisons, Northumberland County Council, Ocado, Rentokil Initial, The FA, Travis Perkins, Virgin Active, and Whirlpool.
The Google Workspace Partner and Google Workspace Education Partner accreditations follow Total’s earlier accreditation as a Chrome Enterprise Partner, which recognises Total’s ability to sell Chrome devices and related services.
