Earlier this year we discovered the delights of Google Apps for business and the fact that it was provided for free for businesses up to 10 people. We switched ourselves and some of our customers to it and are all enjoying the facilities, virtual office and document sharing etc. We now have to update the article due to a change in Google Policy - as of 6 December 2012, they will no longer provide the free version for businesses. It will now cost $50 per user per year which is less than $5 (<£4) per user per month which isn't too bad really for providing:
Last month we explained how we were using Google Apps for business and that we were using it for Email, contacts and our calendar. We have also created a 'Virtual Office' for one of our clients who are now also using it for email, calendar and contacts and we even provided several spcific training videos for them to set up their own email accounts, calendar details and contact information. We are now moving them into the Google Drive which will allow them easy sharing of documents and wanted to explain how we use Google Drive ourselves as freelance website designers.
