There’s a huge range of high-quality applications available to G Suite customers from the G Suite Marketplace (formerly known as Google Apps Marketplace). These apps can include a whole host of different enterprise-grade functions, from Customer Relationship Management to Project Management, Communication and more.
The G Suite Marketplace is open to anyone with a Google account and operates very much like an enterprise version of the Google Play Store. G Suite’s easy integration features are part of what makes it such a valuable tool to any organisation, as you can easily add and remove applications as your business requires them, without being tied down to huge implementation costs. This is a huge benefit for any modern business looking not only to grow but thrive in the ever-advancing world of the cloud.
As the G Suite Marketplace is full of so many different options, we’ve pulled together a few of our favourites to give you a better idea of what’s out there and what you might find most useful for your own requirements.
ProsperWorks is an easy-to-use CRM system built specially for G Suite. It only takes a few minutes to get set-up and requires minimal training. The automated data entry allows your team to focus on selling rather than getting bogged down by admin. You can also automatically assign tasks to ensure no opportunities fall through the cracks.
Asana is a great way to help teams track their workload. It’s free and simple to use, while still being powerful enough to run your business. It offers tasks, projects, conversations and dashboards so your team knows exactly who is doing what, and when for. You can also check the progress of any project without scheduling a meeting or sending a single email.
Slack brings all of your communications together in one app. It provides real-time messaging, archiving and search. You can send and receive files to and from anyone and have access to them wherever you go. You can also add comments and stars for reference, then find them easily via powerful search functions.
Xero is an online accounting software built for small business. Its goal is to make it easy for small businesses to manage their finances anytime, anywhere. You can easily create and send online invoices, schedule reminders, and accept online payments, as well as pay your employees with integrated payroll software.
RingCentral turns your Gmail into a multi-functioning communication hub. You can work efficiently by keeping in touch via calls, SMS, and audio or video conferences – all within Gmail so you can avoid cluttering your desktop with open windows. It also allows you to schedule conference calls and set up a dial-in conference line, which appears directly in your Google Calendar.
DocuSign simplifies your workflow by providing secure and completely digital document approval. You can sign documents yourself, or send them to others and request a signature from within G Suite. All documents are encrypted and a complete audit trail is maintained. You can even remind, correct and void documents that are in flight.
Freshdesk aims to equip you with all the tools required to provide top customer service to your user-base. Freshdesk integrates seamlessly with G Suite and helps you make communication easier by using Gmail to manage support, Hangouts to streamline communication and Translate to eliminate language barriers.
Virtru adds client-side email and file encryption, control, and data loss prevention directly to G Suite. It also allows you to secure your emails and files no matter where they’re sent, as well as being able to revoke, expire, track or disable forwarding, and view read receipts for your messages in Gmail.
As you see, there’s a wide range of options – and this is only a small selection of what’s available overall. The web-based nature of G Suite means that it serves as a rock-solid hub around which a whole eco-system of tools can thrive – an arrangement that brings countless options for you as someone trying to get things done.
