Google has announced Google Apps Team Edition as a way for groups of employees and students to collaborate within an organization using Google Apps.
Once users verify their business or school email address, they can instantly share documents and calendars securely without need of the IT infrastructure for support. Team Edition can easily be switched to Google Apps Standard, Premier or Education Edition for communications and collaboration across the entire company.
Once a user has signed up for Team Edition using a verified business or school email address, they can instantly invite others to join, or easily identify people within their organization already using Google Apps, to collaborate and share documents.
Together, teams of people within a business or school can work on the same document, spreadsheet or presentation (instead of emailing changes in multiple copies of the same attachment), publish documents and calendars for the team to view and update, even access information from any computer, even mobile phones.
With Google Apps, there is no hardware or software to buy, install or maintain, so businesses can quickly begin to collaborate with minimal up front investment. Google Apps Team Edition currently includes:
- Google Docs to create and share documents, spreadsheets and presentations
- Google Calendar to arrange meetings, set schedules, and publish event information
- Google Talk for instant messaging and free PC-to-PC voice calls
- Start Page where users can access their Google Apps services and customized content
