The latest Forrester Total Economic Impact report focuses on Google Workspace, Google’s Productivity & Collaboration suite. Forrester concludes that Google Workspace delivers 336% Return on Investment. The report takes into account Google Workspace solely, without the Duet AI add-on. The financial impact is significant according to the research.
Collaboration in the Cloud
The report shows that collaboration increases significantly after implementing Google Workspace: by 30%. This is possible thanks to the innovative tools within Google Workspace, all aimed at easy (and real-time) collaboration. Google has created a completely cloud-native collaboration package with Workspace and has added AI since 2015.
Google Workspace includes well-known tools such as Gmail (but with your business domain), Google Docs, Google Sheets, but also Google Meet, Chat, and Drive. All tools are ‘cloud-native’. For example, if you join a call in Google Meet, you don’t have to download (or update) plugins or apps first. Any internet browser is sufficient to access the full functionality of all tools.
More highlights from the report:
- 20% reduction in tickets

The Human Side of Cloud
For us, the Cloud is about people. That’s why we’re Google Workspace fans: it allows your colleagues to easily collaborate, regardless of the work location. Collaboration works in real-time, no more hassle about file versions and ‘locked’ files. In addition to all the financial figures mentioned, job satisfaction is just as important. When everyone can collaborate easily, using tools that everyone enjoys using, you will see that productivity increases.
