Intuitive user environment

Google Apps has an intuitive user interface and even the “IT inept” can easily handle more advanced features. This eliminates the common problem when an organization invests considerable funds into functionality that is difficult to use, and each is tied to another piece of software. As a result, only a very limited number of people end up using it. In Google Apps, everything is integrated into one single user-friendly environment.

“My primary expectation was to stimulate communication between people. We wanted to introduce a tool that was integrated and would include options for chatting and video conferencing, and which would enable our people to work from anywhere at any time – and all this has been achieved using Google.”

Data security at the highest level

Deploying Google Apps brings significant reduction of risk of data leakage or misuse, a relatively common and serious problem with normal solutions that utilise their own infrastructure.

The fact that neither employees, technicians nor operators have direct access to data, and that the data are broken down into individually insignificant units stored in different repositories, helps prevent its misuse while increasing reliability and accessibility.

Security procedures are regularly reviewed and certified by independent organizations and, if necessary, it is possible to get these security audits for internal client security audits. Google Apps are certified according to ISO 27001, SSAE 16 Type II, and ISAE 3402 Type II

Cost savings of up to 70% on messaging

Google Apps not only helps achieve a significant reduction in operating and capital costs, but also helps better control and plan them. The unbeatable license price – just €40 per user per year – is only one aspect of the savings. As far as investment costs are concerned, the need to acquire computer equipment, such as servers, is eliminated, because system operation and management of all data is fully provided by Google. This includes security for Google Apps users at a level which would be achieved by comparable internal solutions only at huge cost. With a 100% cloud solution, you’ll also save on administration, energy, anti-spam and antivirus.
