Hi, I’m Steve and would like to welcome you to the Cope Consulting website.
We are a small company based in Ironbridge Shropshire providing setup and consultancy services to small business owners on Google Apps and email.
What Are Google Apps?
Google Apps are a collection of cloud based applications/services/products like Gmail, Googe Docs that are essential to most businesses both large and small.
There are two ways of accessing Google Apps. They are:
- Using a free Google Account
- Using a Google Apps for business account.
Using A free Google Account
You can sign up for a free Google Account and access Google products like Gmail, Google docs, Google Calendar, Google Talk etc.
Applications/services accessed using a free account may support third party ads.and may not be as feature rich as those accessed using a paid Google APPs for business Account.
Individuals and very small businesses will use types of accounts.
Using a Google Apps for Business Account
Although many of the Apps you access are the same as with the free account. Business Apps accounts aren’t managed by Google but by your own administrator.
Most importantly, the Accounts have a company domain name e.g yourbusiness.com, and not a Google domain name. In addition Apps do not contain third party advertisements.
Here is a quick Google overview video
Google Apps for business accounts costs around $50 per user/year when purchased direct from Google.
If you purchase them from a reseller then costs will vary as they are set by the reseller.
The online newsletter will help you keep up to date and learn how to use these technologies/techniques.
I look forward to helping you and your business understand,Set Up, and Use these Apps .
