google_appsWhat is Google Apps?

Google Apps for Business is a suite of online tools built to help you and your employees communicate and collaborate more effectively. You get email, video meetings, documents and more – and access to them from anywhere, anytime, on any device.

As a Google Apps solution provider, we know that one of the keys to successful implementation is the understanding of how the features of each Google application can solve your everyday challenges.

The following information provides an overview and resources for each of the key apps.

GMAIL

Gmail allows you to run your business, not your email server. Gmail for business offers 25 GB of storage per user, powerful spam filtering, contacts management, BlackBerry and Outlook interoperability, and 99.9% uptime.

With Gmail, IM (Instant Messaging) as well as voice and video chat are integrated into one application. Since it is powered by the web, you can be productive from your desk, on the road, at home and on your mobile phone.

Regardless of whether you have an Android phone, Windows Mobile, iPhone or Blackberry – you can sync with your Gmail. Powerful features allow you to search and find emails easily, including historical threads of emails. Other features include tags and labels (to organize your emails, including colour coding), tasks (add messages to your task list), filters, archiving and the collaborative power of integrated IM, voice and video.

GOOGLE CALENDAR

Google Calendar is a web-based application that enables employees to work together efficiently and helps to minimize the costs and IT hassles. Functionality includes the ability to overlay multiple calendars to see when people are available, along with an invitation-RSVP management system. Calendars can be shared company-wide or with select co-workers. A range of sharing permissions controls and helps maintain security and privacy.Your Calendar can be viewed, edited, guests invited, and new events created from your mobile devices as well. Google Calendar also makes it very easy to publish external company events by publishing a calendar to make it searchable in the Google Calendar gallery – they are easy to embed into a web page too

GOOGLE DOCS

Google Docs provides a full suite of online documents with real-time collaboration. These web-based documents, spreadsheets, drawings and presentations allow users to edit the same file at the same time – so you always have the latest version.Web-based documents, spreadsheets, drawings and presentations mean that you’ll have access to your work anywhere, anytime. Google Docs is securely powered by the web, giving you the flexibility to be productive from your desk, on the road, at home and on your mobile phone.

Google Docs works in the browser on PC, Mac, and Linux computers, and supports popular formats such as .doc, .xls, .ppt and .pdf. You can upload and easily share files, which are stored in Google Docs and are always accessible and automatically backed-up online. Administrators can also manage file sharing permissions system-wide, and document owners can share and revoke file access at any time. Of course you will also benefit from regular feature enhancements without having to worry about installing new software or worrying about file compatibility. With Google Docs it’s simple and easy to use.

GOOGLE DRIVE

Google Drive gives you access to your work from anywhere, across your Mac, PC, mobile devices and on the web. Simply download Drive on your Mac or PC to sync files from your computer to the cloud. Update a file on one device and changes are automatically saved to Drive and your other device, so you have the most up-to-date version of your files wherever you need them.Share files or whole folders with individuals, your entire team or even customers and partners. In the Docs, Sheets and Slides editors multiple people can work on the same document at the same time.
Each user starts with 30GB of included storage, with additional storage available in 20GB increments or administrators can centrally purchase and manage up to 16TB (16,000GB) of additional storage for each user.

HANGOUTS

With Hangouts you can have a group chat, and easily turn it into a video or voice conversation right on your laptop, mobile phone or tablet. Meet face-to-face with up to 15 coworkers or customers from anywhere with just a click.

What is Responsive Web Design?

every one these days wants a mobile version of their website. Its practically one design for the Desktop, laptop, TAB, iPhone, the iPad, netbook, BlackBerry and all screen resolutions must be compatible, too.

Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market

Recommended By Google

We all know that Google is a really big deal. In fact, the Big G claimed 67 percent search market share in 2013, making it the most popular search engine in the world. So, if Google claims that it prefers responsive web design as the recommended mobile configuration, you better take that as a hint — which was confirmed by Google’s Pierre Farr in June 2012.

But why does Google prefer responsive design? For starters, it’s more efficient for Google to bot crawl the site and then index and organize all the content that is online. The reason for this is that with responsive design, all sites have just one URL and the same HTML across all devices. When a business has both a mobile site and desktop site, there will be a different URL and different HTML for each. This forces Google to crawl and index multiple versions of the same exact site.

Also, when there is just one website and URL, it’s much easier for users to share, engage and interact with the content on that site as compared to a site that has different pages for mobile and desktop users. Google is a fan of that as well. Why? Because what if someone shared a mobile site on a social media outlet and one of their connections viewed that mobile site on their desktop? That viewer would then be viewing a less than optimal site because it was intended for mobile. This makes the user unhappy.

And Google realizes that unhappy people will go elsewhere, meaning that bounce rates increase and the site will not rank on mobile searches. This creates a whole big headache involving Google’s external link algorithm and on-page errors. Which in turn, also harms your SEO.
In other words, it’s just bad for business for both Google and all of the websites that aren’t taking advantage of the benefits of responsive design
