Google Workspace

Reigniting the "Recommended for Google Workspace" program

#workspace

The launch of Google Workspace last October marked a major milestone in our  journey to give all our customers—from global enterprises to small businesses—the best way to connect, create, and collaborate, regardless of where and how they work. And recently we announced new ways we’re delivering on our mission to build for the future of work with a solution that’s flexible, helpful, and inspires innovation. 

We recognize that to bring this future of work to their teams, our customers depend on many business applications. In fact, research from Okta suggests that the average enterprise uses 129 different applications. This is why from the start we’ve been partnering with leading software vendors to make Google Workspace an open platform and to support our customers’ software and tool choices. We do this by making it easy for our partners to securely build and grow innovative solutions that integrate with Google Workspace.

To help our customers make the best decisions about their business apps, today we are introducing the enhanced “Recommended for Google Workspace” program. 

This program features a selection of market-leading applications built by software vendors across a wide range of categories, including project management, customer support, and finance. These apps will undergo rigorous usability and security testing to make sure they meet our requirements for high quality integrations. They must also have an exemplary track record of user satisfaction, reliability, and privacy.

Recommended for Google Workspace partners will receive new and enhanced benefits from Google, including specialized technical support, early access to APIs, and roadmap reviews. On the promotional side, selected partners will receive featured placement in Google Workspace Marketplace and the benefit of coordinated co-marketing efforts with Google.

Interested partners can get started by applying here. Google will announce selected “Recommended for Google Workspace partners” later this year.
