Getting to know Google Apps

Posted By Pam Saenger, Associate Product Marketing Manager, Google Apps

When chatting with Aidan recently, I mentioned that I thought that a lot of SketchUp users, particularly those who use SketchUp professionally, could benefit from Google Apps. He suggested that I post something here to explain Google Apps and how to find out more about it. So here goes:

One of the projects I've been working on lately is managing our
growing list of contented Google Apps users. Ever since we launched what was formerly called Google Apps for Your Domain, businesses and other organizations have signed up in droves to take advantage of these communication and collaboration tools. Think of it as a suite of applications that integrates with your custom domain; it currently includes Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk (instant messaging and voice over IP), Google Docs & Spreadsheets, Google Page Creator and more. It can feature your own company's branding and it's all hosted by Google.

If you've ever struggled to maintain your business's email servers, roll out software upgrades, or try to share documents, Google Apps might be able to help. We have different flavors, too, including a free Standard Edition and a Premier Edition for only $50 per user per year.

Right now we're seeing all kinds of businesses realize success with Google Apps -- from small start-ups to established design firms and large universities. If you're interested, take a look at some of their stories, and then visit our website to learn more about signing up. If you have questions about implementing Google Apps, how migration works or even just how it could benefit your organization, fill out this form to let us know you'd like someone to get in touch.
