Google adds new business apps

13 Oct 2010

If you’re new to the Apps Marketplace, have a look around and you’ll see there’s plenty on offer in the form of businesses cloud-based solutions.

Apps included cover a wide range of functions such as customer management, project management, productivity and accounting.

“This App Tuesday we are excited to welcome our second education app, PlanbookEdu, as well as our first legal focused app, Clio,” said Google. “As always, all apps offer single sign-on convenience that give users hassle-free access through the universal navigation bar, but many go deeper. Producteev's Gmail contextual gadget, for example, allows users to access many of its features right from the Gmail inbox and Clio's two-way sync with Google Calendar and Contacts ensures consistent data across Clio and Google Apps.”
