Thursday, May 30, 2013 10:15 AM – 11:15 AM EDT


Wondering how online communication and collaboration tools might help your business?  Discover how Google Apps for Business can help you be more productive.  With Google Apps for Business, you’ll have anytime, anywhere access to web-based tools such as email, calendar, documents and more.


It costs you only $5 per user a month (or, $50 per user a year) where comparable solutions would cost you hundreds of dollars per month.


Additionally, there are so many ways to market your business through the plugins for Google Apps, you will definitely want to check out these tools. Most of all, Google Apps for Business gives you control over your digital assets so that information on your employee’s mobile devices and laptops inside/outside the office can be protected!


With Google Apps for Business, you get:

  • Business email – it’s Gmail, but better!  Get custom email (, 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.
  • And, several other niche productivity products we’ll discuss on the Webinar!

After the main presentation, Ray Sidney-Smith of W3 Consulting will be on hand to answer your Google Apps for Business questions!
