Hit a Google Workspace Adoption Plateau? Try Change Management

You’ve begun embracing Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), but you’ve hit an adoption plateau. Don’t worry. It’s not forever. You can get unstuck and propel your organization toward company-wide implementation away from legacy solutions.

Plateaus hinder collaboration stall productivity. They also force you to deal with expensive license agreements for redundant tools and inferior technology usage as you straddle the line between cloud productivity with Google Workspace and legacy tools like Microsoft Office.

Building a Strategy to Boost Google Workspace Adoption

That’s why we offer cloud transformation services. Our four-step Elevate Collaboration and Transformation service guides you through a better adoption experience, organization-wide. You’ll start with a kickoff workshop that educates and prepares you to tackle this transformation through a more efficient process — and then move into these four phases...

  1. Assess and Plan

    We’ll examine your current legacy productivity suite and Google Workspace usage. We recommend using Softwatch for this analysis. We’ll then work with you to develop and execute a Google Workspace transition blueprint and project plan to get you back on track and securely into the cloud — with KPIs defined in the process.

  2. Enable

    No adoption will be fully successful without the right training and a focus on change management across the enterprise in this workplace transformation. We’ll help you identify internal stewards to take the lead in making change happen. We’ll train and support them to work with their colleagues to get Google Workspace up and running in the cloud using communication templates like posters and dashboards — and through expert training classes taught in more than 20 languages.

  3. Transform

    Next, we’ll transition legacy suite users who are considered to be “non-exceptions” to Google Workspace. We’ll also move complex processes into Google Workspace so you don’t have to do it alone.

  4. Inspire

    Once you’re up and running in the cloud, it’s important to equip your teams with inspiring ways to leverage Google Workspace in their day-to-day tasks and projects. We’re here to provide that guidance.

Why Workplace Cloud Collaboration is a Must

When you take your workplace productivity and collaboration to the cloud with Google Workspace, you’ll save on redundant licensing costs and infrastructure, and instead focus your budget and attention on a single, easy-to-manage solution.

But that’s not all. You’ll also put your organization on the right path to better productivity, collaboration and communication in your new, cloud-first workplace. You're not alone in this journey; many other organizations have deployed Google Workspace for a better, faster and smarter way to work.
