BENEFITS:

Security first

Google Apps includes dozens of critical security features specifically designed to keep your data safe, secure and in your control. Your data belongs to you, and Apps tools enable you to control it, including who you share it with and how you share it. Our data center network provides exceptional security and guarantees* reliable access to your data, 24x7x365.25 (that’s right: no rest, even on leap years).

Stay connected from anywhere

With Google Apps, all your work is automatically saved in the cloud. You’ll have access to your email, calendar, documents, and sites and be able to work securely, no matter where you are in the world and what device you’re on.

For your business, this means every employee and everyone you work with can be productive from anywhere, using any device with an Internet connection.

Improve Productivity

Google Apps can help streamline everyday tasks like invoicing, budgeting, scheduling and more. You can create an invoice template in Google Docs, balance your budget by sharing a single spreadsheet or let Google Calendar suggest times for your team to meet. By removing these time-consuming bottlenecks, Apps frees you up to spend more time on the work that really matters.

Easy Colaboration

Google Apps helps you and your team work faster and smarter by making it easy for everyone – employees, partners, vendors, anyone – to collaborate effortlessly across teams, companies and locations.

Google Apps lets you share and edit many types of files – docs, spreadsheets, presentations and more – in real time. Forget all the time-wasting email back and forth over multiple file versions; storing docs in the cloud means everyone automatically has the latest version of any file. Doesn’t that make sense?

Peace of Mind

Spend less time managing your IT infrastructure. Your employees always have access to the latest software, including the newest features and security updates. You don’t need to buy or maintain servers and everything can be managed from a single interface.

Google Apps is quick to set up, can grow with your business.

Reliability

We guarantee that Google Apps will be available at least 99.9% of the time, so your employees are more productive and so you can worry less about system downtime.*

With synchronous replication, your data and activity in Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Sites is simultaneously preserved in multiple secure data centers. If one data center is unable to serve your requests, the system is designed to instantly fall back to another data center that can serve your account with no interruption in service.

The Radicati Group found that Microsoft Exchange typically has 60 minutes of unplanned downtime per month. Google Apps customers typically experience less than 15 minutes of downtime per month.

Gmail

Email wherever you work

Gmail works on any computer or mobile device with a data connection and offline support lets you keep working even when you’re disconnected. Whether you’re at your desk, in a meeting, or on a plane, your email is there.

Work fast, save time, Gmail is designed to make you more productive. 25GB of storage means you never have to delete anything, powerful search lets you find everything, and labels and filters help you stay organised.

Connect with people

Your inbox isn’t just about messages, it’s about people too. Text, voice, and video chat lets you see who’s online and connect instantly. See your contacts’ profile photos, recent updates and shared docs next to each email

Calendar

Stay organised and on schedule

Organise your day with Calendar and get event reminders on your phone or in your inbox. Attach files or docs to your event so you have the right materials when your meeting starts.

Find time with your team

Calendar sharing makes it easy to find time with the people you work with and the smart scheduling feature suggests meeting times that work for everyone.

Drive

Access your files anywhere

Google Drive on your Mac, PC or mobile device (or your browser) gives you a single place for up-to-date versions of your files from anywhere. In addition to any file type you choose to upload, Google Docs are also stored in Google Drive.

Bring your files to life

Share individual files or whole folders with individual people, your entire team or even customers, vendors and partners. Create and reply to comments on files to get feedback or add ideas

Docs

Create or upload

Create awesome documents, spreadsheets and presentations with Google Docs. Or, you can upload your existing work to view, share and edit online.

Share securely

Your docs are stored on the web, so sharing them can be as easy as sending a link. You can make your documents as public or as private as you like and control who can view, comment on and edit each document at any time.

Work together
