3 Reasons to Switch to Google Apps: Productivity, Accessibility, Damage-Control

As a Google Apps reseller, we can walk you through the transition to better office communication.

To make your business even better, we recommend switching your in-office communications (email, etc.) to Google Apps.
Why? Well, there’s the fact that you can share documents and calendars with everyone, or with specific groups, which makes communication easier and faster. You’ll also get 30GB of storage per user (double the free version’s 15GB per user), and you can instantly chat with other people you work with instead of calling or emailing them about simple, short tasks. We’re big fans of Google Apps in our own offices at Infomedia, and we think all our clients will love the functionality it adds. And we’re not the only ones — Google Apps has over four million users, and they average 5,000 new sign-ups each day. Here are some of our favorite benefits:

IT that doesn’t need constant attention

Using Google means never having to update to the latest software, and they include all the new features and security without time-consuming updates and patches — all you need for easy updating is an Internet browser. This means less work for your employees, and it also means more security because updates won’t be delayed. Everything is managed on one interface, and you won’t need to maintain (or purchase) servers.

Get to anything, anywhere

You can use your smartphone or tablet to access your Google Apps, and that means being able to reach anything, from email to documents to calendars and more, right from your phone, even when you’re not at the office. It’s easy to stay connected to the people and projects you need no matter where you are or what device you’re using.

Mistakes are easily managed

All your work from Google Apps is saved automatically on Google’s servers. When something unexpected happens, like your computer is stolen or crashes, all your information is secure and ready to go on another device.

So, why not switch?

There are so many benefits to switching to Google Apps, and we know you’ll love it. The programs are incredibly user-friendly and your workforce probably won’t even need training — they’ll adapt quickly to the increased functionality. If you’re worried about security, Google has you covered: Their program is actually more secure than many closed systems. As a Google Apps reseller, Infomedia can answer your questions and walk you through your transition, plus we can handle administrative duties and help you save on your IT budget.

Pam handles everything from client trainings to website trouble-shooting to scheduling, and it’s clear she has a passion for what she does, for her clients, and for each and every team member here at Infomedia. When she’s not saving the world website at a time, she’s probably reading, camping with her husband, or enjoying one of her guilty pleasures (ice, Chinese food and lemon bars).
