Today’s announcement of Google Workspace for Government is a game changer for public sector agencies looking to redefine how teams collaborate to deliver citizen service and mission impact. Available early next year, the new offering brings the best of Google Cloud’s collaboration and communication tools to the government with pricing, security, and compliance that meets the needs of the public sector. Google Workspace for Government includes all of the productivity apps the world has come to know and love—Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet video conferencing, and many more.
As a Google Cloud Partner and Google Cloud’s Reseller Partner of the Year two years consecutively, we couldn’t be more excited about this announcement. From working with government clients like the State of Arizona, the New Mexico Judiciary, and the City of Los Angeles, we know that how and where government employees work has dramatically changed. Being a part of a distributed team is the new normal, and people need easy-to-adopt tools that empower them to securely connect and collaborate from anywhere. Google Workspace for Government provides organizations an opportunity to thrive in this new norm by giving employees the tools they need to do their best work.
Whether it’s powering social care visits, employment support, or virtual courts, Google Workspace enables public sector organizations to meet the unique challenges they face as they work to provide better services in an increasingly virtual world. Here are three key features of Google Workspace for Government that will enable public sector agencies to reimagine the way they work – anytime, anywhere:
1. Pricing to stay within tight budgets
The public sector is leading the way in managing the impact of the pandemic, and is doing this while also adjusting to tighter budgets. Google Workspace for Government provides options at price points that meet the specific needs and constraints of government customers.
2. Flexibility to work with existing tools and services
Governments can choose the offering that provides the services they need for the people that need them, using Google Workspace as the full suite, or using just the services they want to complement their existing tools. Google Workspace offers interoperability so that tools like Google Docs, Sheets, Slides and Calendar can work with other services that you may use.
3. Compliance to meet the most demanding security and privacy standards
Google Workspace was designed to meet stringent privacy and security standards. With Google Workspace for Government, organizations can find the best package to meet their needs, including tools to support compliance with requirements such as data location, portability, archiving users, and more.
