Google Apps for Business is, from my point of view, a great solution for business email hosting and collaboration. I have been using Gmail for business email host for several months now and can say that there is plenty to like about this service. (remember, it’s also down from time to time, but still what else is out there that offers such functionality?)
I will start by summarising what it’s all about – I get to use a hosted business email service for a flat monthly fee. There are a few reasons for doing this, and they are: It’s really convenient for me. If I know exactly when I will have an appointment or am waiting for an important document to arrive I can just sign up and let Google know when I need them. This is particularly useful in an office environment where you can’t always be on your computer. In the office setting, I often find I’m so busy I forget about things until I’m late, and Google helps me remember by sending them automatically.
How Can It Help?
For example, if I’m running late for work, I can type my appointment. And Gmail will automatically pop up a reminder letting me know it’s on its way. I can also set the reminder to be emailed to me. So I don’t have to look at my phone or go hunting around in my inbox. Both of which are common causes for procrastination. It can also remind me when I have sent something that hasn’t arrived.
The best part is that I only pay for space in Gmail that I use. And not any space that I didn’t use. It’s incredibly useful for people who want to save money, since they only pay for stuff they actually use. I also like the fact that you can set a limit on how many email messages. You want Gmail to receive, limiting how much it costs you to host your own emails.
Benefits of Gmail For Business
I also like how I can schedule which days I check Gmail for business, or emails for personal matters. I can do this from my home and get things done faster than usual. I can even have my Google alerts set to remind me about certain tasks. I should do or things that happen at certain times. I can also set certain folders to have email notifications. And tasks for different subjects. so that I always have my contacts or files handy.
But why use Gmail as a business email host? Well, as I said, it’s really convenient. And I like the way it works, so I use it as much as I can. And the reason I say this is because it costs nothing.
What’s not to like? You can set up an unlimited number of folders for business emails and set them up anywhere on your server. So you don’t have to worry about where to store them. Plus, Google offers several storage options: Gmail’s own space for storing the emails. And documents, a customised folder, Exchange, and third party storage. You can also choose to either use the Google Drive storage service. Or one of their storage services, like Dropbox, or even a web service like Yahoo!
Finally, you can choose to store a lot of different things on Gmail. Allowing you to quickly access your email and files at any time. This means you’re never lost for any information again. I also find having a lot of email on a fast connection, such as DSL or cable. Makes it easy to look up anything that comes in quickly, without any delays.
