You need effective and affordable applications to manage your business.

But with so many options to choose from, how do you compare all the programs that are out there and decide which are worth investing in?

The brands you already know likely stand out, for good reason. A company like Google has the resources to put out a much better product than what’s offered by smaller developers.  Over 5 million businesses use Google Apps – so there must be something (probably a few things) the search engine/world superpower is doing right.

What are the benefits that convince businesses to start using Google Apps?


Sometimes software can be ridiculously expensive (we’re looking at you, Adobe). In other cases, high-end programs are so affordable that they make over-expensive software look even more ridiculous.

Google Apps falls into the latter category. Despite offering some of the most polished and powerful programs on the market, Google is somehow able to keep their software surprisingly affordable. Here’s what you can get for $5 and $10 (per user):


  • Access to tools for creating documents, spreadsheets, and slideshows
  • Use Gmail with a personalised domain instead of
  • 30 GB of online storage
  • Online calendar integrated with your apps
  • 24/7 customer support


  • Unlimited online storage
  • Google Vault, which allows you to easily sift through and search for past email and chat messages and old documents
  • Advanced admin controls and reporting insights for Google Drive
  • Ability to put litigation holds on email accounts

Unparrelled Security

Google is one of the most powerful tech companies in the world, and as such they have access to an incredible amount of resources. Those resources include some of the world’s top security experts on staff, and they have the money to research and implement extremely effective security practices.

Using an email service that doesn’t filter out malicious messages as well as Google makes your inbox prone to phishing schemes, and therefore your network prone to viruses.

Easy to Use

Competitors often can’t afford to beat Google on price, so they have to pad their products with extra features (some useful, many just for show) to justify charging more. Feature-stuffing makes these apps cluttered and difficult to navigate.

Google takes a simple and more intuitive approach to design. Older, more tech-challenged employees are sure to appreciate this. Your employees will need much less assistance when learning Google Apps than they would with other business software.
