Linkgard’s Google Apps software subscriptions are straightforward and value specific. Our competitive price of Google Apps, categorized below, provides cost savings and long-term benefits to our valued customers:

  • Google Apps for Business Pricing – Linkgard’s Google Apps pricing is based on the number of users that your business requires. Hence, if you have 100 employees and all require access to email, then it would be wise to purchase 100 mailboxes, at the annual rate of $50 per mailbox user.
  • Cost of Google Apps Vault Subscription (Optional) – If your business requires email archiving or eDiscovery, consider adding a Google Apps Vault subscription, which is available for purchase separately.
  • Cost of Google Drive Storage Subscription (Extra Capacity) (Optional) – Each subscription of Google Apps for Business includes 30GB of storage per user (shared with Gmail). If your business or even a select group of employees require additional storage, Linkgard offers tiered pricing via our Google Drive storage subscription.

In addition to our value-driven pricing for Google Apps software, most large Google Apps implementations require professional services and support. As an authorized Google Apps reseller, Linkgard is capable of providing the full range of Google Apps solutions, including change management, deployment and migration services at competitive prices.

Total Cost of Google Apps Ownership

Whenever considering a new acquisition, companies must consider the total cost of ownership (TCO) or return on investment (ROI).  We’re happy to note that in a recent study by Forrester, the Google Apps ROI for large enterprises (18,000 employees) was calculated to be a staggering 329%, meaning that for every dollar invested an organization will recuperate more than 3 dollars. In addition, Forrester concluded that companies would break even on their Google Apps investment in 1.4 months.
