Written by Joey Allen (GCP Apps Admin) | March 5, 2014

Being a business owner is a hard job at times, though often very rewarding. There is so much to learn and so many steps to implement to get your business off the ground and thriving. Hiring employees, learning the ropes and getting everything organized are all things you'll have to do now or in the upcoming future as a new business owner. Even if you've been in the game for years now, there is still new knowledge to be discovered. 

 

One thing that may have crossed your path is Google business apps. This unique suite of business applications allows you and other savvy business professionals the opportunity to have all important business documents in one safe, secure location on the web. These apps also include things like a planning calendar, time management tools and a unique email address and hosting services. 

These applications are powerful tools that can be hard to navigate at first. It takes time and patience to completely master all that Google business apps has to offer you, and sometimes you need a little push to help speed up and streamline this process - that's where a Google apps consultant comes into play. These consultants work with your business as a whole, working with you to help teach and guide your employees on the workings of these apps. Here's why you should hire one:

 

Whole Business Approach

These Google apps consultants are trained professionals, knowing the ins and outs of business management and how business apps play a direct role in helping with this process. Consultants have enough experience under their belts to know what works and what doesn't, and they know one thing: everyone in a business must work together to grow and thrive properly. Their job is to teach every employee how to implement key strategies that will be your ticket to success. 

 

A Local Perspective

Hiring a Google apps consultant from your specific geographical area will provide more benefits than you might think. Not only will these people be able to offer you insight and knowledge into general business management and the technical workings of Google's program, they will also have knowledge of what works and what doesn't in your area. By hiring a consultant near you, you'll receive personal assistance unlike any other. These people are here to take the guesswork out and do the grunt work for you. 

 

Hands-On Technical Experience

One of the most difficult aspects to grasp when it comes to teaching yourself and your employees a new skill is the technical aspects behind it, and Google apps is no exception to this. A trained Google apps consultant has an above average amount of technical experience working with these programs. They will be able to guide and support you so that your grasp on the applications grows quickly and is mastered with ease. 

 

Established Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partners

Looking for someone who has numerous, very useful connections with high quality independent software vendors? Look no further than a Google apps consultant. These consultants have already established partners that will allow you to easily gain access to various add-ons that you might not otherwise have been able to obtain. Depending on the type of business you are running, this can be an invaluable resource. Don't let the low monthly fees fool you, this service is worth more than you think. Having these connection established early on will help create a better Google apps experience for your business. 

Hiring a Google apps consultant for use with the broad range of business apps is a wise financial decision. Less time will be taken trying to learn the ins and outs of the software, and more time can be put into growing your business into something bigger and better. You'll have access to ISV partners and other goodies that are hard to come by without use of a consultant. Lastly, you can rest and relax knowing that you're in good hands.
