Google Apps The Greatest Invention
One of the greatest inventions to ever grace the internet is Google Apps for Work. It is a collection of web-based programs that include Gmail, Google Talk, Google Calendar, Google Docs, a customizable Google start page, and Google Sites. While most people who use the internet are familiar with Google, to search any topic, and Gmail as their email service, many people are not aware of the other programs that are available.
I have been using Gmail for years and actually have 6 different email accounts, each one designated for a specific purpose. One I use for work at home opportunities, and another I use for my personal email so I can email family and friends. Each of my Gmail accounts allows me to access the other applications available. It is for my work account that I find myself using the extended apps and not only do I enjoy using them, but they make my life and my work so easy I dont know how I ever got by without them.
For many years I used Microsoft Office for any and all work related documents. While the programs served their purpose, they were not always convenient. If I wanted to share a spreadsheet,for example, I first had to make sure that the person I was sending it to had the same program or one that was compatible. If they did not, then I was forced to print the document and bring it to them physically or send it to them by mail. When attempting to meet a deadline, this process often became very inconvenient. Then a co-worker introduced me to Google Docs.
A miracle had appeared in front of me. I was amazed that all I needed was an internet connection and a Gmail address, and I could create the same documents I had in the past, using Microsoft Office. Not only could I create these documents, but I could share them with anyone, anywhere, who also had an internet connection and a Gmail address. I had options that allowed me to share the documents so they could be read by anyone I gave access to, and give permissions that allowed whoever I chose to make changes to those documents as necessary.
Additionally, using Google Docs can be done from anywhere. Because it is internet based, I can be in the same office as the other people I have shared with, or on the other side of the planet. As long as I have and internet connection, I can work from home or from a beach in Tahiti. It doesnt matter where I am, I can work using the Google Docs and share those docs in real time with whoever I choose.
You can even get a google apps promo code for your business! I cannot express enough that the convenience and ease of use has made my job a hundred times easier. Everything is in one place, I can access it during work hours or in the middle of the night, and it allows me the flexibility to do my job wherever I choose. I am so happy that I have such an awesome program because it allows me to be the best I can be for my employer. I would recommend all the Google programs and apps, as they are designed for every person in any situation.
