G Suite by Google
Google has rebranded their Google Apps. Compudata is now proud to present G Suite.
G Suite, with Google Drive, brings all the benefits of cloud computing to your small business. By having Google host your files securely in the cloud, your work will always be saved and backed up. You can also share your work with the specific people on your team that you give permission to while blocking access from everybody else.
With G Suite, locations and computing platforms are no longer barriers to getting work done. G Suite works on multiple different platforms and is available on different mobile devices and web browsers. Everybody on your team does not have to have the same software and be in the same place to collaborate on a project with G Suite.
Stay Connected with Gmail
New features to Gmail give you the power to do more, work faster, and save time.
Gmail securely stores your messages to the cloud, allowing you and your staff access to all of your communications from anywhere, on any device. Gmail also offers offline support which allows you to keep working on your important messages without being connected to the Internet.
Every Gmail account in your company comes with plenty of cloud storage that can be managed from a dashboard. From your dashboard in Gmail, you can also stay connected with your contacts, by texting, calling, and video chatting with anybody online. Plus, Gmail is integrated with G Suite to allow for easy sharing of projects.
