It’s always a pleasure to introduce a business owner to Google Apps for the first time...
“Ok... so what your telling me is that Google apps will provide us with email- not free looking gmail... real business email with your domain name, shared calendars, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, web sites, instant messaging, and video chat all accessible anytime/anywhere by simply logging in with username and password over the internet”
“OK... got that. Your are also telling me that we don’t need to upgrade or purchase a new server, we don’t need to purchase or upgrade any software licenses, and as we go forward, we no longer need to keep paying for server maintenance or all those pesty, unpredictable fix and break issues with our IT”?
“And I hear you telling me that emails, calendars and contact data is easily synced to our mobile devices?"
“Did I also hear you correctly when you stated that our on-going cost per user for our work group of less than 11 users would be zip, nada, no annual fees at all unless our work group were to grow to over 10 users or we wanted some additional storage and some other nifty features that would then bump-up our annual cost to a whole $50 per user per year...?"
“To put the cherry on the cake, please tell me I wasn’t hallucinating when I heard you say that you also have a complete set of integrated applications that can be tailored to our work flow ”
“ My God man, do you realize that what you are telling me is that with Google Apps for Work we could save time, eliminate brain damage and save a significant portion of our current IT expenditures?”
“What’s the catch?"
“No catch, just grab Google Apps for running a quick, nimble and profitable business in the new economy!"
