By installing an email and colaboration platform beneficial to all, the IT professional and internal structure of your company will be favored by the employees and managers at the heart of leading your success.
Google Apps for Work is not just another suite of octopus arms that extends into and thus slows down every part of your company’s IT framework. It seeks, in fact to do the opposite. Google has set out to streamline the efficiency of communication while maximizing the real time access to information from an employee in Beijing, Sacramento, or London.
Not only are there user benefits (access and permanence to data to powerful messaging to a 25 GB email inbox), IT benefits (no hardware or software, intuitive apps, open platform and integration), and business benefits (increased productivity, flexibility, allows focus to be properly placed, and competitiveness within industries), but there are also financial benefits.
Google chose and funded Forrester Consulting to execute a Total Economic Impact (TEI) analysis and study that would build a framework by which it could examine the possible return on investment (ROI) companies may see by adopting Google Apps for Work as the framework for their internal systems.
