Google Apps is a collection of web-based programs and file storage that run in a web browser, without the need for users to buy or install software. Users can simply log in to the service to access their files and the tools to manipulate them. The products on offer include communication tools (Gmail, Google Talk, and Google Calendar), productivity tools (Google Docs: text files, spreadsheets, and presentations), a customizable start page (iGoogle), and Google Sites (to develop web pages).
The tools are free or users can pay for a Premium Edition, which Apex Computing can provide as an authorised reseller, that adds more storage space and other features. Google Apps allows your company to use it’s own domain name with the service and to customise the interface to reflect your branding.

Because Google stores all of the files and content centrally, collaboration and document management becomes a much simpler task than distributing files to multiple people and keeping track of different versions. For a text document for example, the application maintains the file allowing authorised users to see or edit the text whilst keeping track of all the changes and who makes them. This version history is available and enables comparing any two versions of the document. Similarly, the content in a user’s calendar can easily be shared with other users, and Google Sites provides a simple tool for groups to collaborate on developing web pages or whole websites. When a file is complete it can be “published,” which gives it a unique URL, or it can be exported. In the case of a text document, export options include PDF, Word, RTF, Open Office, and others. A spreadsheet can be exported as a PDF, a text file, or an .xls file among others. Much of the Google Apps functionality is available on mobile devices.
