Discover how Google Workspace improves the total cost of ownership of your IT setup and find the right license to help you save money for your business.
As IT teams’ responsibilities have increased, budgets generally haven’t followed suit to the same extent. A hybrid work model further complicates IT environments: they are expected to effortlessly support a blend of in-office, remote and on-the-go employees. This puts the spotlight on your software choices. Leading organizations opt for productivity suites that go beyond savings on licence fees. Businesses are looking for all-round solutions with a proven economic return on investment and a predictable total cost of ownership.
That’s where Google Workspace comes in.

Pricing and licences
Google Workspace pricing is primarily based on the number of employees in your organization using the software. Workspace licences come in four different tiers. The Business Starter licence includes all Workspace tools and apps and prices at €5 per month per user. Business Standard (€10) and Business Plus (€15) include additional storage and video conferencing options. A Workspace Enterprise licence typically costs around €20 per user per month and includes additional security features, unlimited storage and enhanced support.

Getting more done
Google Workspace increases efficiency on different levels. The cloud-based platform allows employees to collaborate, independent of their location or devices. At the same time, built-in security, updates and auditing capabilities help IT teams to take control. This way, you can focus on rolling out innovations that help move your business strategy forward and accelerate your digital transformation plans.
Dedicated devices empower employees to focus on productivity, leading to additional cost savings. Google’s Chromebook laptop is a prime example. They run on Chrome OS and are both web-based and fully integrated with Workspace, providing additional apps and powerful extensions to the Workspace stack. Remote device management and automated updates slash your IT overhead even further.
Workspace comes with built-in security features, automated updates and remote management for IT admins. This helps organizations to improve their security at a reduced cost, improving productivity of both IT teams and other end users. This makes unpredictable spending on legacy on-premise IT infrastructure a thing of the past. Risks of crashes and other downtime due to updates and patching are also reduced, and audits can be carried out more frequently and on a semi-automated basis.
At the same time, Workspace’s security features mitigate the risk of data breaches compared to legacy IT infrastructure. Data streams can be mapped more easily, making it easier to monitor and safeguard sensitive company information. According to research by Forrester, Workspace improves email and collaboration tool security by an average of 95%.
Switching to Workspace significantly reduces capital and operating expenditure. Organizations typically save on hardware costs and licence fees across a wide range of products, including video chat software, data storage and security tools. Google’s per-user pricing model shifts these costs away from large CapEx investments to predictable and manageable monthly OpEx fees. Forrester research shows a typical total cost of ownership reduction in mid-sized to large enterprises ranging from 80 to 90% compared to legacy IT.
