Calendar sharing has become an integral part collaboration, we setup 18th Street with a system that allows their staff to maintain both internal and public calendars as well as sync with the staff mobile devices.
Google Apps & Cloud Computing
Google Apps and The Google Apps Marketplace represent an entirely new approach IT often called ‘Cloud Computing’. This approach, which is just basically using software that is running the web rather then on your personal computer, enables businesses take the hassle and expense out of IT by providing a host of free applications that don’t need to be installed or upgraded on every employee’s computer. This system also enables their staff to share documents and even work on them at the same time and never have to worry about backups and virusess.
Email has come a long way in the last few years, Exchanges servers, which typically cost thousands per month to maintain, can often be entirely replaced by Google’s “Gmail for your domain” which is basically free for smallers business. This platform offers the sophisticated tools needed to allow your staff to sync their email between multiple computers and mobile devices.
