5 Benefits Google Apps Provides For Small Business

Google offers a package of simple and powerful tools that you can use to communicate and collaborate more effectively, for less. Simplex Studios uses, teaches and 100% recommends Google Apps for business. Below are 5 ways Google Apps can help Small Businesses.

  1. Branded Email: Does your email address show professionalism when it ends in yahoo.com, gmail.com or comcast.com? Give your email a professional and legitimate look. [email protected] can easily become [email protected], plus you can add nicknames to your emails with ease: [email protected], [email protected], and [email protected].

  2. Feature Rich: Get all the benefits and features that large companies have without the huge costs, hardware and hassle of managing both the geek squad and an email server. Communicate like never before with:  Branded Email accounts and instant search tools, web-powered collaboration apps: Google Docs, Google Calendar, Google Tasks, Google Contacts, Google Sites and Google Video for your business, IM, plus voice and video chat, Offline access to your inbox, Mobile access, Spam/virus filtering, and also a custom home page in your web browser to go with it!
  3. Sync: Anytime, anywhere access to your email, calendar, and docs which is conveniently synced in the cloud to your desktop, laptop and mobile device. Read a message on your phone when you are out at an open house and when you return to the office the message is already read on your computer. Easily sync to Outlook, Blackberry and other smartphones. Google Apps is designed so you can spend less time managing your inbox, and more time being productive.
  4. Latest & Greatest Now! Instant gratification: with Google Apps, you instantly have the latest, most up-to-date set of features all the time. There is no more waiting years for the next version, paying for another upgrade or even buying a new computer. Just start up your browser and instantly have the latest version available. Google has released 100’s of updates and bug fixes for Google Apps. In the last 20 days over 20 features, fixes and addons have been applied to the Google Apps Suite.
  5. Google Marketplace: Need more power? Google Marketplace allows you to add exactly what you need from your business into your Google Apps account with as little as 3 clicks. The Google Marketplace adds new products each week check out some highlights below:
  6. Capsule: Capsule is a simple, flexible CRM for small businesses and sales teams. Capsule makes it easy to keep track of your customers and other contacts, your sales opportunities, and follow-ups
  7. Mailchimp: Mailchimp makes it easy to send email newsletters to your customers, manage your subscriber lists, and track campaign performance. Unlike some of our competitors, we don’t “dumb things down.” We take extremely powerful tools that sophisticated marketers use (like segmentation, a/b testing, and ROI tracking), and we make them accessible to anyone.
