Google Apps for Business

Written on the 10 January 2013 by Snap Marketing

With businesses and employees increasingly turning toward smartphones and tablets, workers are clamouring for a way to access files, calendars and emails over a wide range of devices. Google Apps for Business can help.

With Google Apps for Business, Google has put together a suite of easy-to-use and secure cloud-based tools into one convenient package. These apps are more mobile than ever in order to meet the growing technological needs of businesses.

The Google Apps for Business package includes:

  • Gmail: With a streamlined and simple interface, Gmail has become one of the most popular free email services around. And with Gmail Labs, you can add handy features such as "Undo Send", "Canned Responses" for frequent replies and much more.
  • Calendar: Google makes it easy to share your calendar both inside and outside of your business. Calendars can even be published to your website to allow clients to select their own meeting times, and with reminders to your phone or inbox, you'll never miss an appointment again.
  • Drive: Drive allows you to share files and folders among your team as well as with outside clients and partners. Additionally, staff can upload and access files from one central location, preventing outdated versions of files from being passed around.
  • Docs: Google Docs allows you to securely share documents by simply sending a link. Because the files can be opened in a web browser, multiple people can collaborate on the same file and avoid compatibility issues in the process.
  • Sites: Sites allows you to create a project website for your team, which can also be shared publicly. Your team site can be used to organise calendars, presentations, videos and more and with built-in search functionality, you can easily find what you need.
  • Vault: This feature is optional, providing secure archiving, e-discovery and information governance capabilities. It costs extra per month per user for this option, but is ideal for businesses that deal with legal holds and audits.

Depending on your needs, your business could benefit from Google Apps. Contact Snap today to find out how we can help you with your marketing and website needs.
