Kincaid IT launches new cloud-based management suite to address Google’s upcoming storage changes

KIT Central Admin developed to help technology administrators better manage storage and save money

As organizations grapple with the impact of Google’s upcoming changes to storage limits, Kincaid IT is launching a cloud-based SaaS designed to help educational institutions, businesses and other organizations meet this challenge while saving both money and staff time. 

Kincaid IT Central Admin and Admin+ is an all-in-one cloud management suite that supports Google Workspace. Tools available within KIT Central will help technology administrators manage their organizations’ storage with user-friendly dashboards, reporting and options to eliminate excess storage usage.

“We are currently the only company offering a web-based product that gives organizations the resources they need to efficiently monitor and manage their Google storage,” said Dr. Amy Bailey, Kincaid IT chief innovation officer. “As institutions  prepare for Google’s 2022 storage changes, Kincaid IT Central is ready to help organizations make informed decisions and thus effectively manage and take action on data within the domain before they face the new limits. ”

While developing the management tools, Kincaid IT (KIT) piloted KIT Central in collaboration with several school districts with a variety of enrollments and storage needs. 

Google recently announced plans to change its storage limits with enforcement beginning in July 2022, so managing storage at the admin level is becoming increasingly important. 

Although Google offers a handful of tools to help administrators determine storage, KIT Central provides additional features and insights, all via a web-based dashboard. Examples include:

  • Allowing admins to see top storage users and the files they are storing
  • Searching an organization’s drive files with filters
  • Notifying individuals whose storage usage is not in line with policies and limits 
  • Scheduling files for deletion
  • Delete files instantly
  • Managing user memberships from a single pane
  • Resetting user passwords with granular delegations.

Based on Google’s 2022 storage changes, it is estimated that KIT Central could save a mid-sized school district tens of thousands of dollars while universities — with their employee, student and alumni accounts — could see savings totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. These cost savings are based on an organization’s ability to reduce the need to purchase additional Google storage and licenses by better managing storage. Kincaid IT Central was also created with technology department staff members in mind, offering tools specifically designed to save time for an organization’s admins.

For more information about Kincaid IT Central, to schedule a demo and learn more about Google storage changes, visit this webpage. Pricing is based on the number of users within an organization. Kincaid IT is also offering a 20-percent discount for organizations signing up by June 30, 2021, as well as a 14-day free trial.
