Google Apps: Doing Business in the Most Powerful Cloud

Your Bay Area or Northern California business thrives on being smarter, faster, and more efficient than your competition. You are constantly innovating and coming up with new ways to serve your market. The last thing you need is to be slowed down by clunky, inefficient programs and old ways of connecting. You need the flexibility that comes with doing business in the cloud. You need Google Apps.

Google Apps is a cloud-based productivity suite that helps you and your team connect and get work done from anywhere. It allows you to work together across multiple platforms in a secure and user-friendly way, bouncing effortlessly from computer to phone to tablet, so even if your team is spread out, you’ll feel like you’re in the same room. It combines the best of both worlds, and is key to helping your business be the best it can be.

The Benefits of Google Apps for Your Bay Area or Northern California Business

Proven cost savings

Google’s web-based messaging and collaboration apps require no hardware or software and need minimal administration, providing tremendous time and cost savings for businesses. End users can use the familiar Microsoft Outlook interface for email, contacts, and calendars as they transition to Gmail and Google Calendar. A leading research firm found that Google Apps is as little as 1/3 the total cost of competing solutions. Find out how much you could save with Google Apps compared to Microsoft Exchange 2007.

50 times more storage than the industry average

Each employee gets 30 GB for email storage, so they can keep important messages and find them instantly with built-in Google search. Gmail is designed so employees can spend less time managing their inboxes and more time being productive. Time-saving features like message threading, message labels, fast message search, and powerful spam filtering help employees work efficiently with high volumes of email.

Mobile email, calendar, and IM access

With several options for accessing their information while on the go, employees can be productive with Google Apps even when they’re not at their desks. At no extra charge, Google Apps supports over-the-air mobile access on BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile, Android, and even less powerful phones.

99.9% uptime reliability guarantee with synchronous replication

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.
