Google Apps and Small Business


[MUSIC] ROSS NOVER: My name
is Ross Nover. I work at Free Range Studios
and I’m a designer. We’re located in D.C. We do
campaign, strategy work, design work, print, web,
animation, film, et cetera. Our clients are mostly
non-profits. Also progressive causes, and
just companies that want do to social change. BRAD MILLER: Brad Miller. We work for Properties
Restaurant Group. We got three locations in
Charlotte and two in South Carolina, one in Rock Hill,
one in Fort Mill. We sell burgers, chicken
sandwiches, hot dogs, fries, your basic quick service
restaurant. DARRYL SHIPPY: Hi, my name is
Darryl Shippy, and I’m the Technology Director for
truckmovers.com. Truckmovers is located in Kansas
City, Missouri, and we do what they call drive away,
which is connecting truck drivers that want to move trucks
with customers that need trucks moved. And we move big trucks
throughout the country to all 48 states. BRAD MILLER: It was about two
years ago, I started off with just the Gmail application. Then we worked into the
documents, and calendar, and other things that
Google offered. ROSS NOVER: We’ve been using
Google Apps as a company for approximately six months. I first heard about Google
Apps through Gmail. As the apps list started to
grow, I started to think, there’s got to be a way that we
can use this more and more. And throughout the office more
and more of us started to feel the same way, and we started
to implement it wherever we could fill in the gaps. And also, it started to have
a lot of features that were easier than the ways we
were doing things. DARRYL SHIPPY: Probably the
biggest reason why we started using Google Apps is that we
were looking for a better email solution. So we first started Google Apps
using Gmail, and we were very happy with that. And then it just snowballed
from there. BRAD MILLER: Google Docs, next
to Gmail, I think is the biggest application for us. Especially I think as a
restaurant as a whole, any a company that owns multiple units
of restaurants should be utilizing Google Docs. ROSS NOVER: We use the Google
Start Page that we have set up with things like the weather
in all of our offices and things like that. We also use Gmail. We use the Google Calendar so
we can all keep up with all the people and all the places. DARRYL SHIPPY: The big benefits
to us is the fact that everything is
browser-based. And that when we work at home,
we can see the exact same setup that we have at work. Everything is shared online,
doesn’t matter if we’re on the road or not, we can
get to everything. It’s securely hosted by Google
so we don’t have anything to back up or to manage. We don’t have any special
servers anymore to manage the same data, so it’s been
a big benefit to us. BRAD MILLER: From a productivity
standpoint, I think it’s made our company
a lot more efficient. ROSS NOVER: We’re big on trying
to find better ways to do things, and Google Apps
had what we needed. DARRYL SHIPPY: I would
definitely recommend Google Apps for Small Business because
takes away a lot of your IT needs. It’s very easy to manage
and anybody can do it. [MUSIC]

  1. Only problem is that Google insist on tracking and spying on you. Not so much to invade your privacy but to sell your activity. However; you never know what large corps are up to………. I Not Trust Them

  2. @robb1031 yeah man ! google pay me $1000 every day for advertising for them lol ! and i will say it again ! "good for you cuz you sux"

  3. C'mon Google, you can do much better than this video. If you want to talk about why your apps are great for small business, lets hear about their pain points! Customer testimonials are compelling, but you need to hear what their pains were before cutting to the benefits…just a suggestion. zzzzzzzzzzzz

  4. @MrEquityRelease You don't have to contact Google to set it up. You just sign up. I'd be happy to help you if you have any questions.

  5. I want to use some of this stuff. Im just a one man operation but I much prefer the idea of doing all my emails, keeping documents etc on line (cloud based I guess). But, no matter how many videos about this stuff I watch Im left none the wiser. I do think google could explain things a bit better for the non technical lot.

  6. >if google goes down

    That's an awfully tall order to fill. How often has Google gone down in your experience? 0.1% downtime (the max expected from their 99.9% uptime promise) is about 8 hours over the course of an entire year, which is often broken down into smaller bits of time. A weekly reboot of an in-house server that takes 15 minutes to fully reboot gives you 13 hours of downtime in a year.
