Outdated and Unfriedly System Interface, Text-Only Signature
In its startup phase, CogoodSpace relied on a Taiwanese virtual hosting provider and its email suite. However, the provider’s application interface was user-unfriendly and lacked features. This was a challenge for a young team. Over time, email design has evolved to include colorful and image-rich signatures, but CogoodSpace’s system only supported text signatures. This limitation stifled their potential and prompted consideration of a system switch.
Danger of Data Loss in Transitional Phases Without IT Personnel
Contrasting to many organizations in operation today, CogoodSpaces’s core philosophy is centered around achieving a balance of 50/50 work and play. Therefore, there was always an openness to try different systems that could enhance the quality of work for their employees. However, with the lack of IT manpower, there were fears about potential data losses and operational disruptions when considering a system switch
Inability to Work Remotely Due to Resource Limitation
As a modern and diverse space solutions company, CogoodSpace has been eager to embrace the future of remote working. Considering that multiple employees were in a situation where they lived abroad, the inability to work and attend meetings online was bothersome and very inconvenient. To facilitate effective communication and collaboration, they required a reliable video conferencing tool.
Furthermore, there was always an irony that CogoodSpace’s office did not have a streamlined and unified reservation system for meeting spaces. This led to multiple occurrences of double bookings which involved clients. This caused the priority for a video conferencing system to be exceptionally high in CogoodSpace’s vision of an organized management system.

Transition to Google Workspace for a modern and highly integrated system
Within the thought processes of CogoodSpace, the two most widely used options for cloud system provider was evaluated and compared i.e., Google Workspace and Outlook. The selection depended on the criteria of a low learning curve, user-friendly ensign, and high integration capabilities.
Given that the majority of CogoodSpace’s employees are already heavy users personnel Gmail accounts have used various Google applications such as Drive, Forms, Docs, and Sheets for work as a student or in their past working experiences, a conclusion came too that Google Workspace had the lower learning curve and it is more user friendly. In addition, other cloud-based project management platforms were already in use at the time, hence it had to be compatible with the new system. Therefore, the decision to adopt Google Workspace was driven by its user-friendliness, high integration potential, and the quick onboarding process offered by Google and TS Cloud themselves.

CogoodSpace explained that due to their need for an assisted systematic transition between systems, they have evaluated multiple Google Workspace resellers before collaborating with TS Cloud.
