Trade Association of Information Technology (TAIT) has organized a TAIT Paathshaala Workshop for members on optimum use of Gmail and Google Suite. The session was conducted by Shailesh Bhimani, Google Apps Sales & Deployment Specialist.

 

"Talking about the new-generation technologies available today, network computing and cloud computing have many advantages to offer SMEs. For instance, adopting the Google suite can help to make work more streamlined by real-time sharing of documents, project plans, sales and financial accounting data, product pictures and videos and much more. This helps to strengthen SME organizations by allowing teams to work together, irrespective of their geographical locations and the devices that they use," said Shailesh Bhimani, Google Apps Sales & Deployment Specialist.

 

Bhimani further explained to members, "Google products do not work on the principle of 'sorting', but on 'searching'." He explained the new features such as canned responses, that is, if a user needs to send similar email responses out to a number of people, he/she could use a Google Labs feature called 'Canned Responses'. This feature allows the user to save an email as a canned response and use it over and over again without needing to copy and paste into a new window.

 

Google Drive allows files to be stored in a common repository with secure access from a personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. The feature allows sending invites to others to view, download or edit files and collaborate on any project without sharing attachments through email. File updates are automatically saved and stored in Google Drive, so all designated team members can have access to the latest version.

 

Google Login helps to protect company data with security options like “two-step verification” and “single sign-on”, and allows management via mobile apps to keep your emails and data files safe in case of a lost device or employee turnover.

 

Email messages and Google Talk chats can be archived, and a user can control how long they are retained. Security settings can be easily configured from a centralized administration console, and in case support is required, Google Support can be called or emailed for help 24/7.

 

Viren Bavishi, Director, TAIT, said, "Google's G Suite is big. With Gmail and all the supporting applications, accessing your work is easier with one login. As G Suite runs online, everything gets continually backed up and is available on any computer with an internet connection, and also instantly shareable."

 

TAIT President Rushabh Shah said, "G Suite is a compelling product for SMEs. It is fast and works on a wide range of devices and is easier to use and administer. Providing the right tools to an organization's team to collaborate helps them to create and compete in new ways."
