SMB_Avatar_Green.pngRunning your business just got a lot easier with tools that will help you save time, reduce cost, and increase communication with your employees and coworkers. With Google Apps for business, your office is now in the palm of your hand.

Problem: You need to juggle multiple schedules to find a meeting time.

  • Solution: Google Calendar with smart scheduling. With features like smart scheduling that suggests meeting times that work with everyone on your team, you no longer have to spend time playing phone tag to schedule a 30-minute meeting. You can avoid spending the first half of your meeting shuffling papers by attaching files or docs to your events, ensuring all attendees have the right materials right when your meeting starts. Need a quick 5-minute chat with one of your coworkers? Shared calendars can show you whether or not they’re currently in another meeting or out of the office.

Problem: You need to access a presentation to do a last-minute edit, and you left your computer at the office.

  • Solution: Google Drive with anywhere access to your documents. Did you know you can view over 30 types of files in your browser from anywhere, even if the device you’re using doesn’t have that software installed? With Google Drive, you can open, view, and edit any file on-the-go. Collaboration on documents with your team also just got a lot easier, without having to keep track of changes made separately made by team members on multiple hard copies. You can put away the red pen and see all the changes made on a doc with a detailed revision history.

Problem: You need to schedule a last-minute meeting with your team, but you’re nowhere near your office.

  • Solution: Make the world your conference room with messaging, video and voice meetings on-the-go. Whether you or your teammates are out of the office, or on the other side of the country, Hangouts helps you stay connected with fewer dial-in codes, saving time and letting you connect face-to-face instantly. You don’t need to download a complicated meeting app, or spend time updating your version of flash. Hangouts works on any device, right in your web browser or on your mobile device.
