Migrating to G Suite doesn’t have to be a one-time changeover for all

Those who have been using Google’s cloud service would know how advanced and convenient the technology is. However, it is very hard for those who have not yet experienced it to understand the true benefits of Google’s cloud service. Human nature tends toward comfort and is hard-wired to resist change. The core argument between people who support and against G Suite is usually around “whether we should change over to G Suite completely”. Due to many ‘irreconcilable differences’ between the two parties, it is very hard to achieve a consensus. But, does it really have to be a “all-or-nothing” decision? Is it possible to migrate part of the employees to G Suite while keeping the others on the legacy system? These are the most urgent problem to be resolved for many companies that are considering G Suite.

 

Concern Pro-G Suite Anti-G Suite
Cost and performance In order to improve productivity, G Suite is imperative. Current email service has no limit on account numbers while G Suite is per user based pricing.
Perspective on corporate email Email together with collabration tools will improve productivity. Mailbox is just a tool to send and receive emails, thus unwilling to pay so much on it.
Accessibility in China My departement has nothing to do with China. Accessibility of Google in China is unstable, therefore risky to use.
Software literacy With G Suite, there’s no need to purchase Microsoft Office. I am used to Office. I have never used Google before.
Mobile working G Suite can be accessed anytime with any device, thus more convenient than Microsoft Office. I only use computer inside the office. There’s no need for mobile working.

 

“whether or not to change over to G Suite completely” is no longer an issue

The reason why the argument between pro and anti centers around “whether or not to change over to G Suite completely” is because one company is only allowed to have one “mailing address” (which is the MX record in DNS) in the world of Internet. Having said that, today’s technology allows us to set up G Suite email routing or dual delivery systems that run in parallel therefore making it possible for companies to have both their legacy email system and G Suite running together without having to abandon the legacy system and migrate all users to G Suite at once. This can be done by simply setting up G Suite email routing or dual delivery configuration on both sides as long as the legacy system supports email routing or dual delivery. Thanks to this advanced functionality, embracing a new technology is no longer an obstacle for many companies now.

 

Instead of struggling to reach consensus, just migrate whoever is ready

Your IT no longer need to spend countless hours planning for a turnkey migration project. Time to market is important to your business users and we are here to make that possible. Move a smaller group to G Suite almost immediately, risk free, while retaining the ability to fall back to on-premise email system, if ever need to be.

 

BENEFITS OF G SUITE EMAIL ROUTING by setting up dual delivery

 

1 – COST CONTROL

Migrating whoever is ready to migrate, your cost increases progressively and not overnight.

 

2 – WORK IN PARALLEL

The familiar on-premise email system continues to work as usual while the G Suite users enjoy the new technologies and be able to fall back if needed.

 

3 – RISK FREE

Because the familiar on-premise email system continues to exist and operate, what risk is there?

 

The hybrid model of enterprise mailboxes

Since G Suite can work in parallel with your existing email system thus there is no need to replace everything completely. It will give your IT procurement the flexibility to decide the number of users on G Suite in order to meet the different purpose or needs of different teams and scenarios.
