  • 6 things to watch for a successful G Suite deployment

Moving to G Suite will help your business become more collaborative, innovative and agile. Bearing in mind though, as with any project where you're migrating users and data to a new platform, there are many potential, yet avoidable, pitfalls along the way. A Google Cloud Premier Partner like Ancoris can help you understand the issues and how to work through them, ensuring a smooth, fast transition to a better way of working. Download our top tips for a successful G Suite deployment.

We've already used our tried-and-tested process for deploying G Suite to help hundreds of customers successfully make the move. As well as drawing on our experience of migrating users from a wide variety of legacy platforms, we also have close relationships with Google Cloud's own technical experts, meaning we can quickly get answers to any new issues.

During a typical G Suite deployment, our Google Certified Deployment Specialists will:

  • run a G Suite deployment planning workshop, to understand your current environment and identify the best tools and approach for your migration.
  • help you set up your initial G Suite environment and user accounts, including identifying and handling users who've already created GMail Consumer accounts using their work email address.
  • make sure you have the right security settings in place, by walking you through all the settings in the Google admin console.
  • migrate your users and their data – including profile information, organisational structures and distribution lists as well as the users email, calendar and contacts – using a phased approach. This lets you verify your G Suite installation and confirm G Suite can handle everything your users need to do in their day-today work before you roll it out to the whole business.

Alongside this technical deployment, we'll run a change management programme designed to move your users from their current environment and ways of working to being productive and effective in a new environment, as quickly and seamlessly as possible. This starts as soon as we begin working with you and is critical to the success of any G Suite implementation. It ensures you have the necessary high-level sponsorship and detailed understanding of your users and their needs, as well as communication, marketing, training and go-live support plans for each user group.

The story doesn't end once G Suite has been rolled out, though. We'll hand you over to our customer success team. They're not just there to provide break-fix support and regular checks to ensure your system is optimised and healthy. They also offer a range of services to help you get the most out of your investment in G Suite and use it as a platform for business improvement and digital transformation.
