But for your work life, this may not cut it. Inviting and combining everyone on a team, or even hundreds of people in a company, into a single workspace gets messy and confusing, and negates the initial gains made by the service. That's where Google Apps for work comes in to play. Google Apps for work brings the convenience and ease of Google Apps to your office, and your company. It's similar in function to the initial suite, with some key differences, attuned to a simple workspace, maximizing the important utility of the Apps.
When you sign up for Google Apps for your business, you won't be adding personal emails. You'll sign up under the company domain. So instead of firstname.lastname@example.org, you'll have email@example.com. Your business will benefit from this in a number of ways. First and foremost, your business will have it's own space, where users can interact and share ideas like they could with their personal mail, but in a project specific space, so that the files and ideas are shared in a more focused and organized manner. In addition, this separate company space allows for complete IT administrative privileges, via an IT control panel integrated into Google Apps. Through this, an IT administrator has full control over the project, allowing them to manage and control the accounts with access to projects, and the capabilities of those users. This gives a company more control over their assets, streamlining processes and keeping everything organized for ease of use.
Google is constantly working and innovating. Our free services offer users a timely and fresh experience, that is constantly evolving with new and improved features for the public. While this remains important, we've focused some attention on new and enhanced features, separate from the standard, that are enhanced and tailored specifically for business use. Many of these are unique to Google Apps for business, and aren't available through the free platforms.
While Google's standard apps are great for day to day life, your business structure is unique and requires a more nuanced approach. Google Apps for business is a suite of tools that will make certain your business and it's employees are kept in sync just as your personal life is, but with the control and versatility necessary to adapt and stay in front of the industry.
