Google Workspace Reseller
As a Google Workspace reseller, we provide licensing resale services to enable businesses to leverage discounted Google Workspace licensing whilst remaining as the primary administrator with Google Workspace admin console access.
This allows you to support your team members with their drive and Gmail accounts whilst managing their platform and file storage.
CloudTech24 provides premium Google Workspace Support as a more personalised experience. It can be coupled with our IT platform and IT Support to ensure comprehensive IT coverage and expert support as an alternative to direct Workspace technical support.
Due to limitations with backup in Google Workspace, CloudTech24 offer complete Workspace backup services to provide assurance of all business data by backing up all of the data into our monitored cloud-to-cloud backup platform.
CloudTech24 managed a seamless service changeover from our previous Google Workspace support provider. It is great to have gained a competitive price from a more local expert provider. We have already recommended CloudTech24 and his team and will continue to do so for Google and IT support.
