No, we are not affiliated with Google. However, we absolutely love their services. It is quite literally true that we know Google Workspace better than the palms of our hands.

We have assisted a wide range of organizations of all sizes, from startups and small businesses to enormous organizations employing tens of thousands of people.

How does this training compare vs other options?

This question should rather be, “How isn’t it better?”.

  • It is cheaper (completely free) and often more effective than hiring someone to help.
  • It is easier to follow and understand than Google’s Help Center, YouTube videos, or any other resource you can find.
