Many small businesses do not have the in-house resources needed to properly implement and support Google Workspace. These companies often seek help from a Google Workspace Partner.
There are a lot of companies that advertise Google Workspace services, but not all have Member status in Google’s Partner Advantage program.
In 2017, Google launched its Cloud Partner directory, which is a searchable listing of all companies that have been accepted into the Google Cloud Partner Program.
Keep in mind that Google Workspace is only one of many different products and services under the Google Cloud umbrella.
Google Cloud Partner Listing
Start by going to the Google find a partner page.
In the absence of any search criteria, the listing begins with Google Partners that focus on enterprises and have dozens of areas of Google Cloud expertise.
If you own or manage a small to mid-size business, you’ll want to use the filtering capability of the ‘find a partner’ page.
Search for a Google Workspace Partner Near You
We found that it’s best to search using the left-side Filters sidebar. This is because the keyword search bar does not allow for a proximity search.
Partner Location Filter
On the ‘find a partner’ page, there is a search box labeled Partners located near.
Enter a city name or the name of a city close to your business in the search box.
In the example below, we entered ‘Sacramento.’
Click on Products at the bottom of the left sidebar.
Google Workspace is one of several products that a Google Cloud Partner can be listed for.
- Google Cloud
- Google Cloud Platform
- Google Cloud Training
- Google for Education
- Google Maps Platform
- Google Workspace
- Professional Services Organization
Check the box to the left of Google Workspace.
Here is a link to the search results shown in the above image.
You can also enter your industry in the search box to find out if there are any partners who have worked with companies in the same type of business as yours.
Google Partner Specialization and Expertise
There are additional filters, including one for Specializations and one for Industry Expertise.
These filters may be more relevant for products and services other than Google Workspace.
If you are looking for a Google Workspace services partner, the basic Location and Product filters are your best bet.
