You’ve no doubt noticed Google never rests on its laurels. It’s always innovating and improving its products and services to benefit you – the business customer.

That’s why it recently rebranded its business enterprise Google Apps for Business, to Google Apps for Work. It makes sense, since Google’s popular suite of enterprise products isn’t only for corporations – they’re ideal for businesses of all shapes and sizes.

As Google’s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said, “Technology for the workplace isn’t just about a better way of doing business. It’s about empowering anyone, whether they’re a developer with an idea in their basement or a baker with a better cupcake or a company with thousands of employees, to have an impact,” Schmidt said. “We never set out to create a traditional ‘enterprise’ business—we wanted to create a new way of doing work.”
But what is Google Apps for Work, and how can it help your business work faster and smarter?
