I found this interesting and my recommended must-read for the day–check it out! Online collaboration in my opinion is hugely important in helping to increase productivity, and the new Jive app definitely is one the I like because of all the out-box functionalities and features. I cannot wait to try it. Thank you Scott McMullan for introducing us to new apps from Google. Hey, everyone, don’t forget to meet all 16 apps at the Marketplace.
Bringing sixteen more apps to the Google Apps Marketplace, by Scott McMullan, Google Apps Partner Lead, Google Enterprise.
We created the Google Apps Marketplace to make it easier for businesses and universities to benefit from the rapidly growing ecosystem of apps in the cloud. Apps in the Marketplace come in many sizes, from bite-sized apps that focus on providing a single feature to larger standalone apps that run major business systems and processes—and they’re all conveniently integrated with Google apps.We believe it should be as easy to discover and purchase cloud apps for your organization as it is to get mobile apps for your smartphone. And, once you install and evaluate an app, it’s easy for your administrator to deploy them to users with just a few clicks. (Check out this video to see how it works).
We’ve added some great new apps since we launched in March and today we’re bringing you 16 new apps to the Marketplace. They represent a cross-section of the innovation happening on the web around integrated applications, where information is shared between applications allowing people to get their work done, faster:
- Jive: Jive Social Business Software combines collaboration, community and social networking software, allowing you to engage employees, customers and the social web.
- Harvest: Harvest is a simple time tracking application that makes it fast and easy for businesses to track billable hours and create invoices.
- Floorplanner Pro: Floorplanner Pro provides a quick and easy way for real estate agents and facilities professionals to create and share interactive floor plans in both 2D as 3D.
