AppDirect Partners with Google to Launch Google Workspace

Over the past few months, we've all watched as work has transformed in unprecedented ways. For many, our offices are now remote—and they're going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. In fact, almost half of employees, 48 percent, will continue to work remotely even after the global pandemic subsides.

In the wake of these huge changes, AppDirect has been here to support providers as they find ways to help customers enable their own workforces with best-in-class technology tools. This week, our efforts took a significant leap forward with the launch of Google Workspace, a new collection of collaboration solutions from Google.

With Google Workspace, users can access Google's productivity apps—including Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and more—in one simple, integrated interface. It's a solution to help remote employees be more productive and work together more effectively, but also a place for shared interests that can help deepen connections between colleagues and make work more satisfying. You can get more details about Google Workspace here.

Google Workspace offers so much of what people have come to love about Google's productivity apps—powerful features, ease of use, great design. For us, what's even more exciting is the complete, end-to-end approach that Google is taking to collaboration at work. At AppDirect, we know that holistic, customer-centric solutions are what deliver long-term value to users, and Google Workspace fits this to a T.

“We’re thrilled to announce Google Workspace to help teams communicate and collaborate,” said Carolee Gearhart, Global Channel Chief at Google Cloud. “Google Workspace offers a seamless experience for people to be productive and stay in touch, at work and at home. We look forward to working with our partners like AppDirect to bring Google Workspace to customers and to help teams stay connected today and in the future.”

We share Carolee’s enthusiasm, and are incredibly excited to partner closely with Google to meet the challenges of collaboration in the new digital age head on. In the coming weeks, we will work to bring Google Workspace to our current customers and make it available to providers worldwide.

Google envisions a future where work is more flexible, time is more precious, and enabling stronger human connections becomes even more important. At AppDirect, our mission is to make that future accessible to every business around the globe. Launching Google Workspace is a big step toward that goal.
