Google G Suite
G Suite is Google's online suite of tools to compete with Office 365, IBS Schools has been migrating Worcestershire schools to a Hybrid G Suite (previously known as Google Apps) for many years and now is the time to take it to the next level with full G Suite.
Email, plan, communicate anywhere
G Suite provides school staff with a simple and easy to use online only email system and online document editing facilities. Using G Suite your school will benefit from the following:
- A clean and clear mail interface from any browser, as well as mobile applications.
- Online calendars to enable you to manage your busy schedule as well as shared calendars for all your school staff to keep up to date with your school's diary
- Online Google Productivity Applications: Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides. Any Microsoft Office files you upload into Google's Cloud will be automatically converted to Google's format for easier usage of the Google Apps.
- "Unlimited" storage for all staff and pupils (above 5 users), enabling them to store files of any type without using your school's local storage space. This eliminates the requirement for portable drives with the additional benefit of reducing the risk from introducing viruses to your systems and protecting your data from loss.
- Google Classroom offers a platform for schools to deliver a digital lesson, so you can plan lessons and publish them to pupils without spending precious time printing resources.
There is no need for extra licences
G Suite's services to education are free to use and the only fees associated are the ones to get you set up and for your email data to be migrated across to get you using it right away!
Due to it being a completely online based way of working there is nothing for you to download, you can use the existing web browser on your machine or use the Google Chrome Browser for best compatibility.
IBS Schools provides additional training and support to ensure your school can make best use of all the functionality within G Suite from day one. We are able to provide on-going support to ensure you are always up-to date with the latest services from Google.
