Formerly known as Google Apps for Business, the G Suite is a an incredible tool for any business or organization. Besides the wonderful benefit of having a Gmail account for your domain name, the G Suite offers a variety of tools that make collaborating on documents seamless and efficient.
An introduction to a few of the tools in the G Suite
Docs is similar to Microsoft Word and has the ability to open and edit Microsoft Word files. Docs is an incredible tool for collaborating with others, but it is just as handy for working across multiple devices. Groups can work on the same document at the same time from a desktop laptop or phone.
Sheets is the Google version of Microsoft Excel, but with the added benefits of realtime collaboration and an nifty explore feature. The explore feature lets you ask your data questions and see suggested formatting, charts, and analysis.
Although sometimes overlooked, Forms is an incredibly powerful tool that is able to gather data in a survey format. Results are automatically added to a Google Sheet, where conclusion and insights can be discovered. Google Forms is a fantastic tool to help meetings run more efficiently. Some smaller meetings may even be replaced by a quick form.
Google App Maker
App Maker is a newest addition being rolled out for G Suite for Business users in an Early Adopted Program (as of January, 2017). This low-code, drag-and-drop app builder has the power to gather data from G Suite Apps (Contacts, Groups, Maps, etc.) and doesn’t require another hosting plan. This translates to fast, high-quality development of apps.
