Google has created one of the most powerful search engines the world has ever known, and its services have pervaded every aspect of our lives. Whether you directly use Google products or services, Google has an impact on almost every product or service you buy or sell. But, Google doesn't stop there.

Google has created an IT infrastructure for Small Business called G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Work, which was formerly Google Apps for Business) that can help your entire business be more productive, provide better customer service, develop custom software without an IT or development team, and more. With G Suite, you'll have anytime, anywhere access to Web-based tools such as your basics (email, calendar, documents and website) to so much more.

  • Business email - it's Gmail, but better! Get custom email (@your_company.com), more storage, and access from anywhere-on the web, on your phone, and even offline.
  • Calendar - Use Google Calendar to centralize schedules in one company-wide calendar that's accessible from anywhere. Overlay calendars to see when people are available, send invites, and plan events.
  • Documents, spreadsheets, and more - Share and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and forms with Google Docs. Employees always have access to the most up-to-date versions of their work files from anywhere.
  • Website(s) - Centralize important company information and manage projects with an internal website that will help keep your team organized and connected. Create sites as easily as editing a document. Keep important information centralized and secure. Use templates to create sites faster.

 

In this Webinar, we'll do a high level overview of the current state of G Suite, talk about some of the benefits and pitfalls to watch out for, and where G Suite is headed in the near-future to help Small Business compete with Big Business for a fraction of the cost with as a great an impact.
