What is Google Apps for Work?

As Google Apps is hosted in the cloud, it experiences virtually zero down time, this coupled with the fact that it is developed and run by Google ensures constant feature updates and upgrades.
Google Apps allows you to use your own domain for hosting such as @businessexample.com, appear more professional by utilizing your domain in your email.
Collaboration & Efficiency
Google Apps allows employees to work on documents and spreadsheets from any part of the world, and from virtually any connected device. The collaboration features allow multiple people to view and modify documents simultaneously in real life. Notifications on changes can be sent, and suggestions can be made but not executed if required.
Google Apps also features Google Hangouts. Google Hangouts allows users to collaborate via voice and video from any connected device such as Smart Phones and laptops. Google Hangouts can replace real meetings by hosting multiple participants and even allowing users to share their screens with others.
Cost Cutting & Time Saving
Google Apps for Work is hosted in the cloud, meaning you don’t have to pay for expensive hardware and software maintenance. Save time by freeing up your IT resources, time wasted on patching, upgrades and maintenance can now be allocated to different areas.
Google Drive functions as a complete document back up solution. Any files placed in the Google Drive folder will automatically sync to the cloud and will become available on any connected device. As a bonus, Google Drive saves file revisions, so you can easily backtrack changes if required, even if you’ve saved over that document.
Google Apps allows organisations to easily terminate accounts and even remotely wipe phones if required. Google Apps also supports two-step authentication which requires users to authenticate their login with an SMS or Mobile App token.
