Data4Development leads you to a successful G-Suite implementation

For social enterprises, there is a great deal to be gained by making the transfer to Google. G-Suite is especially suitable for organisations that cooperate on a national and international level, and is a good replacement for the use of disjointed systems such as Microsoft Office, Sharepoint and Dropbox, which are not integrated with other applications, are not secure, and have expensive licenses.

Working is easier with G-Suite

Because the applications of Google are designed to work together the work is made simpler, which enhances productivity. Cooperation between employees is also easier than ever. The new strategic partnership between Google and Salesforce will continue to enhance integration, making G-Suite an extremely interesting option for Salesforce users. There is also a lot of money to be saved by transferring to Google, as they offer free and unlimited licenses for NGOs and educational facilities. The G-Suite environment is secure, which is one of the most important requirements of the new GDPR regulations. By opting for Google your organisation takes a large step forwards in achieving security.

What we do

Data4Development offers guidance as you transfer to Google. As an independent party, we are familiar with this new generation of applications, and we have a lot of experience in working with NGOs. Through our knowledge of the sector, we know how partner organisations work, and we have seen how the use of G-Suite has bridged the gap between the main office and local offices. It is also the best solution for countries that have limited bandwidth. D4D takes care of the G-Suite implementation for your organisation by making an inventory of licenses, signaling cost-saving opportunities, and guiding employees to the new way of working in the Cloud.
