Why Google Business Apps?

Do you want to know why we think Google Business Apps is amazing? Ask yourself this….when was the last time you:-

  • Shut down without saving and lost the changes to your document.
  • Shared a document with multiple recipients only to find they were reviewing the wrong version.
  • Had to re-arrange a meeting 16 times to accommodate everyone.
  • Planned to work from home for the day, but the information you needed was sitting on the network in the office.
  • Had problems with your email client on your phone.

That never happens to me, because I use Google Apps. Let’s take a look at just why Google Business Apps is so brilliant.

What is Google Business Apps?

Simply, Google Apps is a cloud-based productivity suite that allows you to connect, collaborate and share anywhere on any device. With Apps such as Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, work is smarter and you can focus on what really matters.

6 Reasons why Google Business Apps rocks

1. Everything about Google that’s brilliant

If I could write all the stuff that’s brilliant about Google, this post would go on for a while. So here are the main points.

  • Security – Information is kept safe at each stage of data storage, access and transfer. Your data will not be lost because your hard drive crashed, a computer was stolen or onsite data was destroyed by a fire. By keeping your data in the cloud, your data is safe 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Connect anywhere and work together – Employees and clients can be productive anywhere, using any device with an Internet connection. You are able to collaborate on many types of files – docs, spreadsheets, presentations etc – in real time. By storing docs in the cloud everyone automatically has the latest version of any file.
  • Work faster – You can streamline everyday tasks like invoicing, budgeting, scheduling. You are able to remove time-consuming bottlenecks and spend more time on the work that really matters.
  • Invisible IT- There is no need to buy or maintain servers and everything is managed from a single interface.
  • Go green – Google Apps not only reduces your company’s overall expenses but your environmental impact too.

2. The suite of products – everything you need, not more

Google Apps provides the tools that your business wants. With 30 GB of content for free, integrated Google Search in Gmail, spam filters, Google Calendar smart scheduling, Google Document sharing, video calls with Google Hangouts and more business is made smarter. You chose the apps and the features right for your business.

This is breadth not depth. Google have done away with the stuff that 95% of people never use and just focussed on the bits that are really going to change your life.

3. Its a dream across any device

Search the web, navigate the world, be entertained and shop and buy. We already know we can do this on our mobile devices. But, what about connecting and sharing, creating and collaborating? With Google Apps for mobile this is possible. To me, there is nothing more satisfying than being able to access a document or email on the run, anywhere at any time. You will soon find excuses are limited when it comes to completing a document or replying to an email. With Google Apps, email is smarter and work is more connected.

What’s more, with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), Google Apps moulded to BOYDs policies, so much so that not only are apps now available for Drive, Gmail and Google+ on iOS and Android but, Googles new App slogan is “work the way you live”.

4. Its easy to use – Intuitive adoption

While all the above may sound overwhelming and complicated, believe me, it isn’t. Google is intuitive, familiar – its embedded. There are millions of people out there who think that Google is the internet.

“We want to build technology that everybody loves using, and that affects everyone. We want to create beautiful, intuitive services and technologies that are so incredibly useful that people use them twice a day. Like they use a toothbrush. There aren’t that many things people use twice a day,”
Larry Page, Google Co-Founder

5. Pricing

One of the great things about Google Apps is it’s price. At just $5 per user per month (only two cups of coffee per month), you can scale up and down and pay only for what you use – its a model built to service the 99%. Its not expensive and its not complex; Google Apps is quick to set up and can grow with your business.

6. Works like a dream with Salesforce.com

With Gmail to Salesforce integration, logging emails, chats, activities on lead, contact, opportunity, and other records that support activity history in Salesforce, has never been so easy. This make Google Apps a powerful product for your business.

What does Google Apps mean for your business?

Google Apps mean smarter work and more time to do the things that really matter. You can focus on your business and not your systems. and have peace of mind knowing that all your data in safe in the cloud.

This kit works like a dream and you already know how to use it. That’s got to be good.
