It’s time to get more business value from Google Workspace: 3 steps to get you started

Google business value

Google Workspace has the potential to revolutionise the way teams work together. It is the multi-cloud product in which work gets done every single day, no matter when or where people are working from. But many companies are not realising its full transformative and economic power.

There are a number of reasons for this including lack of training and adoption, integration challenges and resistance to change.

However, there’s something bigger at play – something that is endemic for Google Workspace users at a global scale. The core issue is that companies do not fully understand how their teams are currently using Google Workspace, the impact of this usage, and therefore the areas that need improvement.

In this blog post, we’ll explore three steps that businesses can take to unlock more value from their investment in Google Workspace.

By following these steps, you can optimise your team’s productivity, supercharge collaboration, improve your digital employee experience and ultimately drive better business outcomes.

Step 1: Measure your current Google Workspace usage

Before you can improve how your teams are using Google Workspace and its impact on your business, you need to understand how teams are currently using the products.

This will give you a base level of understanding and a benchmark of engagement that you can compare against over time.

Temporall’s Google Workspace analytics can help you do this. With Temporall, you can get an overview of how different teams and departments are using Google Workspace, including which features are being used most and which are underutilised. This can help you identify areas that need improvement, such as the teams that haven’t adopted Google Workspace as well as other teams, and certain features that could help them be more productive and collaborative.

In addition to identifying areas for improvement, understanding current usage can help you celebrate what’s already working well. You may find that some teams are using Google Workspace in innovative ways that other teams could learn from. By sharing these successes across the organisation, you can encourage further high-impact collaboration and innovation – and drive better business outcomes.

Step 2: Analyse collaboration patterns and the impact on your organisation

The success of organisations of all sizes often depends on the ability of its employees to work collaboratively across time and geographies. Better collaboration can increase productivity, enhance innovation, reduce time-to-market – and Google Workspace is your collaborative hub.

Understanding how your teams collaborate in Google Workspace can therefore help you identify areas for improvement and drive towards success.

Temporall’s analytics can help you analyse collaboration patterns across teams, departments, seniority, age groups, and more. By looking at these patterns in meetings, email usage, file sharing, and other collaboration behaviours, you can identify areas where teams are thriving and areas where there is room for change.

For example, from analysis in Step 1, you may find that certain teams are using Meet more frequently than others. Further analysis on Temporall could reveal that this is resulting in fewer email notifications after hours and healthier collaboration patterns. Therefore, by encouraging other teams to adopt this behaviour, you could help drive improved collaboration practices across your organisation and improve your organisational productivity.

Step 3: Track key performance indicators

Finally, it’s important to continuously measure your key performance indicators (KPIs) to clarify success and make better data-driven decisions.

Temporall’s ‘always on’ Google Workspace analytics can help you do this. By tracking trends in tool usage and adoption, meetings, collaboration patterns, and more, you can measure the impact of your efforts across Google Workspace and your wider workplace policies.

Following KPIs can also help you identify areas where further improvements are needed. For example, if you’re focusing on improving in-document collaboration, you may find that teams are spending less time on email communication as a result, and are more productive. By continuously measuring these changes, you can ensure that you’re making progress in your target areas – getting tangible business outcomes.

By following these three steps, companies can get the most out of Google Workspace and drive more business value across their organisation.

With Temporall’s Google Workspace insights, you can get a deeper understanding of how your teams are using Google Workspace, identify areas for improvement and track progress over time. This empowers you to make better data-driven decisions and encourage innovation, so you can help your teams realise the full transformative and economic power of Google Workspace.
