Ever since Google took business by storm with G Suite (formerly called Google Apps for Work), it’s becoming a top choice for companies in heavily regulated industries. As of January 2018, more than 4 million businesses are paying for G Suite’s collaboration and productivity tools, such as Gmail, Drive, Docs, and Calendar. Even though Microsoft Office is still the productivity suite leader, G Suite is showing impressive growth with sales doubling in the last two years, according to Reuters.

And with SherWeb? We let you skip the hassle and set up your services in minutes. You don’t have to sell a minimum number of seats to sign up for our reseller program. It’s a quick, free, and easy process that will save you lots of time.

Want to extend your sales footprint and grow your business? Then you need to work with a reputable partner. This year alone, we won the Microsoft 2018 SMB Partner of the Year and ChannelPro 2018 Best Partner Community awards.

Check out our three flexible partner programs. They include:

• Free migration and onboarding services.

2. Tap into new markets

Reselling G Suite with SherWeb opens up new opportunities for resellers—from targeting a fresh segment of customers to generating new revenue streams. We’re offering G Suite in several countries around the world through our partner program.

The Big Picture

Google’s suite of collaborative, mobile, and communication apps has been around long enough that it has given rise to a new generation of connected workers. Many small to medium sized businesses are embracing G Suite now more than ever. They’re even integrating features like Gmail with other commonly used software, such as CRM platforms, project management tools, and customer support solutions.

G Suite is winning over major industries, too. It’s changing the way financial institutions such as banks and insurance, investment, and accountancy companies keep up with big amounts of data on a day-to-day basis that eat up valuable business hours. With G Suite’s search feature, they can easily handle large volumes of electronic information and records dating back to several years and retrieve all their data across Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, and more.

Companies are also reaping the benefits of Vault to solve their data protection, retention, and storage issues.

3. Drive business growth with a consumer-first product

Google’s company philosophy is simple: “Focus on the user and all else will follow.”

If you’ve been in the tech world long enough or know a little about Google’s history, you know that their applications focus on the user experience. Their apps are easy to use because they’re specifically designed with the end-user’s needs in mind.

In fact, many academic institutions like the University of Massachusetts and the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta invested in G Suite for Education, which has amassed 70 million users worldwide.

Today, G Suite’s enterprise approach is paying off. Over the years, Google has transformed its suite of consumer focused apps into an organization’s everyday workflow. Companies around the world—including government agencies—use G Suite as a scalable and affordable tool to increase workplace efficiency, communication, and team work.
