8 Reasons Companies Switch to G Suite

Google is a household name for internet search. Most people are aware of consumer Gmail. However, many business people are not aware of Google’s suite of applications for business, G Suite. “Gone Google” is a term Google coined for companies that have adopted G Suite. At the time of publication of this post, Google states that over 5 million companies have gone Google. With over 125 million businesses in the world, there’s clearly some upside for Google.

A Chrome extension is a software program that adds functionality to the Chrome browser. In fact, the original intent of Google’s developers was for extensions to be minimalist.

6 Google Slides Tips & Tricks

Google Slides allows you to collaboratively create business presentations with others in your organization. With Google’s continuous delivery of new features and functionality, there are always new ways to make your presentations more effective. Here are some tips and tricks for getting more out of Google Slides.  1. Use Image Masking to Modify the Shapes of Images You may want to change the shape of an image that’s embedded within a slide. A simple use case is rounding the sharp corners of a photo. Select an image within a slide and then click on the  Mask image  arrow to the right of the crop tool. You can then change the image to match any of the available shapes. Start with the Rounded Rectangle shape. Once the shape has been selected you can use the image handles and/or the crop tool to fine tune the shape. 2.

What is Google Docs and How Does it Work?

Google Docs is one of the productivity applications that’s included with free consumer Gmail and with G Suite [for business]. It is a cloud-based word processor, which means that no desktop software is required to create and edit documents. Documents are stored on Google Drive, which is the cloud drive included with Gmail and G Suite. Google Docs has all the core capabilities that can be found in traditional word processors. It also has a number of capabilities that relate to the fact that the documents are stored on a cloud drive (vs. on someone’s desktop). Here are just a few of those capabilities.

9 reasons why we recommend " Google Chromebook " for business purposes

Chromebook runs on Google’s lightweight operating system, Chrome OS. Chrome OS is so lightweight that it doesn’t support running traditional locally installed business applications. This is changing to to some degree, as several recent model Chromebooks support installed Android apps. Example models are the Acer Chromebook R 11 Convertible  and the Google Chromebook Pixel . Many developers will need to make changes to their Android apps in order to fully support Chrome OS. Even if an app is made compatible with Chrome OS, it may not be as robust as its Windows or macOS counterpart. Chromebooks ship with under 32GB of local storage. But this is more than enough space to run multiple Chrome extensions. Chrome OS updates are easy and fast to apply. This makes Chromebook an attractively secure choice in light of recent ransomware attacks, in which older unpatched operating systems were exploited. 1: Cost effectiveness You'd be hard-pressed to top the price point of the C
