Google Apps for Business
Work Better Together from Anywhere


Switching to Google Apps is easy for IT and for end-users. With data migration
capabilities for all common legacy systems included at no extra cost, companies
can transition quickly and with minimal disruption. Google Apps offers users
the familiar experiences of Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and other
tools already used by hundreds of millions of people in their personal lives,
so minimal training and support is required.

What you get
Gmail provides 30GB of storage per user (50x the industry average), advanced
spam filtering, lightning-fast message search, integrated text, voice, and
video chat, and other productivity innovations such as Priority Inbox. Gmail
is accessible securely from almost any mobile device with a data connection,
including Android, Apple iPhone®, BlackBerry®, and Windows Phone®.

Google Calendar helps employees organize their schedules and create
and manage shared calendars with colleagues. Multiple calendars can be
overlayed to view free and busy times at a glance, and the “Quick Add” feature
understands natural language so you can easily create appointments by
typing event information into a simple box. Google Calendar is available from
any web browser and all major mobile platforms, and can be accessed from
Microsoft Outlook.

Google Docs enables multi-person, real-time collaboration for documents,
spreadsheets, presentations and drawings, so groups can work more efficiently
and avoid the hassles of attachments and version-control issues. Google
Docs supports import and export from all common file formats, and provides
granular file permissions so it’s easy to control who can view or edit important
information. Google Docs can be accessed from any web browser and on a
wide range of mobile devices.

Google Sites lets users create and share their own project websites or
intranet pages without programming skills or technical support. Sites helps
keep everyone on the same page – literally – by making it easy to centralize
and collaborate on documents, calendars, videos, and more. Google Sites is
available from anywhere, on any web browser.

Google Groups supports administrator- and user-managed distribution email
lists and discussion groups. Each group has a browsable, searchable archive for
easy, secure access to important information in past discussions and threads.
Google Groups also simplifies sharing within Google Docs and other applications,
and access permissions for items shared with a group always stay in sync with
the group’s membership.

More Google applications, including Google Voice, Blogger, Google Reader,
and Google+ are also accessible through Google Apps accounts.*
can enable the right apps for different groups of users, while employees get the
simplicity of having a single account with a unified contact list that works across
all Google applications.

Archiving and eDiscovery tools, powered by Postini, are optionally
available to Google Apps customers and can help with legal discovery,
regulatory, and compliance audits as well as with internal investigations.

Hundreds of third-party applications available from the Google Apps
Marketplace extend Google Apps with capabilities such as CRM, project
management, accounting and finance, and sales and marketing tools that
work seamlessly with Google Apps, including the ease of single sign-on
(SSO) access.


How companies benefit
Proven productivity gains and cost-savings
Not only can Google Apps save customers the cost and complexity of legacy
solutions; our web-based applications also drive proven productivity gains. In
fact, with productivity-boosting features like multi-person, real-time collaboration
in Google Docs and fast message search in Gmail, the total business value
of Google Apps is 2.5 times greater than the cost savings alone. According to
Forrester Consulting, the ROI of Google Apps is over 300 percent, and Google
Apps can pay for itself in less than seven months.

State-of-the-art security and reliability
Google’s network of data centers is engineered for security, reliability, and
redundancy, and backed by the world’s foremost experts in information
security. Google Apps includes 2-step verification, a two-factor authentication
system that significantly increases protection from unauthorized access to
user accounts. With 2-step verification, in addition to their passwords, users
are prompted to sign in with a second verification code that is sent to them
via their mobile phones. Millions of organizations (including Google Inc.) trust
Google’s infrastructure to keep their most important corporate data safe,
and Google Apps has completed a thorough SSAE 16/ISAE 3402 Type II audit.
Google’s service level agreement (SLA) guarantees 99.9 percent uptime, but
our historical uptime rate has been significantly higher than this threshold.

Google Apps makes it easy to run your entire business on the web. With the
Google Apps Marketplace, you can access a fast-growing collection of over
250 applications that integrate your business processes. For example, you
can manage your entire sales cycle anywhere you have access to a browser
through Marketplace apps: Send marketing and lead-generation emails
through MailChimp, manage and track responses with Zoho CRM, and
even close the sale with an e-signature from EchoSign.
