According to Tracia Sherman, Workspace Platform Manager, Maryland Department of Information Technology, “Cost was also a huge consideration that led Maryland to Google Workspace and SADA.

Google Workspace enabled the company to connect remote teams, share information and ideas, and collaborate in real-time. The result was a more efficient workflow, improved productivity, and a better experience for both employees and customers.
“In the end, we felt Google Workspace was a better fit for us and our goals,” said Jesse Lazarus, Kravet’s Chief Process and Innovation Officer, “Having a full suite of products that work harmoniously together and offer the same access for everyone throughout our organization were key deciding factors. Initially, we didn’t even realize how big of a role that Google Workspace’s Meet and Chat functionality would play in our daily collaboration. These were features that we weren’t getting from Microsoft so we didn’t know what to expect.”
