Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office

Posted on the 25th February 2011

Being a Google Apps Reseller we get to hear about all the new features that Google are working on to improve Google Apps. Yesterday  Google released “Google  Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office” Plugin which can be downloaded here.

Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office brings collaborative multi-person editing to the familiar Microsoft Office experience. Users can share, backup, and simultaneously edit Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents with coworkers.

As soon as the plugin was launched we downloaded it to test for ourselves, simple easy install and configuration. Within minutes we were up syncing with our Google Docs library and sharing between ourselves and devices. The Plugin seemed to work smoothly with a really easy to use interface. You can easily sync and share any Microsoft Office document and with 1 click access to the actual document stored in Google Apps.

We are hoping Google continues to work and improve what the Google Cloud Connect Plugin can offer. Maybe we will see further development with integration with other popular application suites.

The Google Apps Cloud Connect Plugin combined with Google Sites can offer an amazing Intranet / Extranet Solution for any business and we can see it becoming more powerful than Microsoft SharePoint.

Google Apps Cloud Connect helps users become familiar with the benefits of web-powered collaboration and makes a smooth transition to 100% web productivity tools –  THE FUTURE. Google Cloud Connect is just one more reason to start using Google Apps Premier for your Business. Even if your not ready to move to a new messaging platform, Google Apps has a lot more to offer than just a robust Email service.
