When running a business, the one thing people will do on a daily basis is communicate with others. Making calls, sending emails, texting and even video chatting are the common ways people get in contact with one another if they are not having an in-person conversation. This requires a secure, reliable communication system, but the truth is, this isn't something that you may be able to say your company has just yet. This is probably because you haven't taken advantage of cloud communication or any of the many available business apps.

Today's work environment is no longer a stuffy office with cubicles, desks and a water cooler in the corner. Free-spirited individuals now call an exotic beach, the local coffee shop or even a remote cabin in the mountains their office. This allows for greater freedom, and more productivity as workers become happier, but until recently, it made connecting with others a bit more difficult. As more people started embracing this lifestyle, it became clear that a more efficient way to bring people together for collaboration was needed. Old video-conferencing platforms left something to be desired, were often expensive and came with both a learning curve and limitations. Chrome for Work came to the rescue.
Recently, Google made a major update to Google Apps that introduced three new APIs and, with them, multiple new features to the Google Apps suite. Fortunately, all of these new features mean a lot more power is in the hands of Google Apps Admins. Let's discuss the most prominent ones.
Your Google Apps Super Administrator is, hands down, the most powerful user in your system. While this may seem obvious, most companies haven't thought about the practical implications of that fact.
Using Gmail for your business is a solution that will work well for many small businesses but shows its limitations when implemented for larger organizations. However, adding a few business app integrations to Gmail can make it an efficient tool for everything from customer relationship management (CRM), business communications and document management.
We here at Coolhead Tech are huge supporters of cloud integration in IT and networking, but before we get into the benefits, what does "cloud integration" actually mean and what are the benefits?
