    Google Apps Work HostGator

    What do you do when one of the world’s most innovative companies of all time reaches out to you and your business and says, “We want to help?” Here’s a hint: take their hand and say "thank you" without any hesitation. Some things just make sense... and sometimes saying “no” makes no sense at all.

    Cue, the mighty Google. What can be said about the company whose name has not only become synonymous with Internet searches but has actually become a verb; an honor reserved for only the most creative and unique individuals and entities in existence. Google has long been a standout for more than what they bring to the table; who they invite to the table with them is of equal importance. And, this time, they are inviting you.

    Google Apps is a suite of tools, most of which you're likely already familiar with (Gmail, anyone?) that are designed to streamline your business. HostGator now uses Google Apps internally for our email, document sharing, video conferencing, calendars, and so forth. Google Apps has literally changed the way we function, day to day.

    Here is a brief snapshot of the things Google wants to do for you, aside from provide you with an excellent suite of fully useable tools:

    • Help ensure your business is HIPPA, PCI, SOX compliant
    • Provide you with their SLA for your internal AND external mail
    • Reduce your required IT costs
    • Improve your communications with conference functions
    • Establish a secure backbone for your internal and external interfacing
    • Maximize your project management efficiency with synced calendars
    • Bolster your branding and SEO efforts
    • Facilitate editing in multiple document formats without purchase of a license

    This is a very big deal. In short, these benefits are amazing. Whether for your independent consultancy, your medium sized growing business or if your company has recently gone public, Google Apps for your business is possibly the best and arguably the most important move you can make. The biggest benefit of all? Making your life more simple. Now HostGator can help as well. Not only are we customers of Google ourselves, but we've now partnered with Google to offer Google Apps for business directly to you.
