Google Workspace & Google Workspace Marketplace

You’re probably familiar with a lot of the great features that come with opening a free Google account. Aside from the super-popular Gmail app, you get free online storage, online-based word editing and spreadsheets, as well as a calendar and photo storage. What more could you need?

Well, if you’ve got a business to run, chances are you will probably need more than just a few bytes of storage and an online calendar for keeping track of your appointments. Small businesses need a collaborative workspace, a way to organize data, track projects, and a centralized platform to manage it all.

Welcome, Google Workspace.

What is Google Workspace?

Formerly known as G Suite, Google Workspace is an integrated business solution that lets businesses and organizations use Google services on their own domain for a monthly subscription fee. From Gmail, the most popular email platform, to great productivity applications such as Google Spreadsheets and Google Docs, its apps cover most of the basic needs of small and medium-sized businesses.

But as workspaces continue to transition into more online-based platforms, and businesses keep making the switch to online software (SaaS), the demand for remote access, collaboration, and management tools is greater than ever. As a result, there has been a boom in new businesses and solutions that integrate with G Suite.

So where can you find all these solutions?
