More and more businesses are looking for an alternative to Google Workspace. Now is the right time for resellers to take advantage of this new demand.

Jan 28, 2022


Google recently announced that, from later this year, it will begin charging for accounts that use custom domains with its Gmail/G-Suite services – a service that was previously free.

This has come as a shock to many small businesses. It will significantly impact many those who’ve taken advantage of the free services since 2006, both in terms of cost and complexity if they want to migrate away from Google-based services. However, it presents a real opportunity for resellers to offer a fully supported, proven email and collaboration tool to those businesses who are looking at alternatives.

Open-Xchange works with resellers to easily migrate Google users to their OX Cloud platform, helping to ensure continuity of communication and no loss of data.

OX Cloud is a fully hosted email solution that gives resellers access to:

  • Proven technology delivered via Open-Xchange’s cloud platform
  • Powerful features for their customers
  • Everything needed to upsell users to more advanced packages
  • Both subscription based and revenue share business models with “No Cost, No Risk”

OX Cloud become a reseller

If you’re not an OX Cloud reseller yet, you should look at all the features we offer for small business user and harness this new demand by offering a valid alternative to Google Workspace.
