In today’s cloud-based computing world, you no longer need to install programs on specific computers to keep your data safe and secure. Google offers a comprehensive suite of office products that can streamline your IT infrastructure. These programs work on most computers, tablets, and smartphones, which allows you and your employees secure access to data from any location. Read on to find out what these Google apps can do for your business:


Millions of people around the world already use personal Gmail accounts because Google has designed the interface to be intuitive and user-friendly. When you sign up for Google Apps, you will be able to assign a custom domain name to your Gmail, so everyone at your company has a recognizable, standardized email address: employeename@yourbusiness.com. Co-workers can initiate text and video chats right from their inbox for instant feedback and communication.


You can share Google calendars with every user in your company so that all employees can instantly see when their co-workers and supervisors are available for meetings. Now you can always know where everyone is during business hours. Google calendars can also automatically cross-reference everyone’s schedule to suggest optimal meeting times. This feature is indispensable when employees travel to different time zones and need to remotely connect to online staff meetings.  


Google Drive offers quick, accessible, and collaborative document creation. Instantly create charts, spreadsheets, and presentations, which are automatically backed up to the cloud for security and safety. Multiple users can simultaneously edit the same document from any computer, smartphone, or tablet, allowing easy collaboration even when telecommuting. Google Drive also supports uploads, so you can work offline and then consolidate your documents when you’re connected again.
