Not more over to Google Apps for Work? 2015 is the year to make the change. Here are our top five reasons why (and you can thank us later)
1. No more backup nightmares
Google Apps for Work, previously known as Google Apps for Business, was designed from the beginning to be a cloud based tool. This means you can get rid of all your server headaches, and your IT team can focus on what’s important. Google has long been one of the key players in cloud storage, so your corporate documents are being stored by a name you trust.
2. Google Apps for Work syncs across all your online business tools
Google Apps syncs across your email, your Google Drive with your docs in, your calendar and even with hangouts, for business calls and messaging, so you can get get rid of all the other systems you were using and focus all your business efforts with one streamlined product
3. Google Apps for Work means you can work cooperatively
Because Google Apps for Work is cloud based, your team can work simultaneously within a document, without sending each other multiple versions and corrections. This is a big advantage for all teams, but especially for teams working remotely, who can’t sit together to make changes.
4. There is no, or just a minimal learning curve
Training in your team to work within a new system can often be a real time drain, but moving over to Google for Work means that you are using a system your team are already comfortable. Most people already have a personal gmail account, and understand how to use Google Drive, Calendar, and the available features.
5 . Customize, Customize, Customize
Google Apps for Work is a wonderful team solution, but it really comes into it’s own when you customize it with apps designed to fit the needs of your team. Start off by customizing your team email signature with WiseStamp’s teams signature management solution, then check out a host of other great apps for Google Apps for Work, including Streak, Boomerang, and Rapportive.
