It was hard to find a solution for a small scale business that was affordable and safe. Google provided the time-proven security, however Google Apps for Work let our office use all of their product suite with confidence. Implementing a unified system throughout our office was easy because most people have experience with the free versions anyways. Using the Google Apps for Work system lets me monitor and analyze data (in and out) like a large corporation, while at the same time not having the full system invoice/upkeep that would normally be associated.

Google for work has been great. We use the email, hangouts, and calendar everyday. We also occasionally utilize the docs and the drive functions.

Google Apps for Education is being used to manage the Chromebooks my organization uses. The admin console has many options to manage devices and users alike. The core Google products is familiar to many users. Implementation is not difficult with Chromebooks. Google Cloud Printing is very limited though, does not work as it honestly should, is difficult to maintain, and offers no support. This is not a big problem for my organization, however, issues that arise result in me figuring out something on my own.

We had difficulty navigating changing our domain name as our company's name changed. This is not straightforward and the downside was confusion on branding since our old email domain name was primary and our new name was resolved as an alias. It took a year for me to get this corrected as my staff kept saying it wasn't possible, we need expensive 3rd party services, etc. Eventually we got it figured out.

We have been able to escalate complex issues with ease of resolve. Training has been simple to implement. Documentation is abundant.

Helping our users understand the GAE relationship and assuring that data was secure and private was a big challenge as people were used to consumer-grade experiences with Google and feared being served up ads as part of the move to Google apps. The transition to a cloud-based collaboration suite has significantly improved business processes. We needed more communication throughout the project and on-going training that would have driven up user adoption.
