Should our school move to Google apps?

Episode 1052 (19:48)

Trent from Central Florida

Trent works in the IT department at a local school, and they are currently running a Microsoft Exchange Server. They're thinking of moving over to Google Apps. What does Leo think?

Leo says that they pay a hefty fee for the Microsoft Exchange license, whereas Google Apps are free. They'll lose some functions, naturally, but you can't beat the price. Google is pushing hard to get education to adopt Google Apps, and recently, up to 20% of schools are investing in Chromebooks. Now is the time to make the move. GMail is a better mail system, anyway.
