Are you planning to start a new business but have no idea where to begin? Having a proper system in place is the basic fundamental for your business.

For new startups, I would recommend considering using Google Apps to jumpstart your business. Google Apps is a web-based solution that provides the key applications that you would need to run your business. Here are 10 reasons how Google Apps can help startups jumpstart their business.

Low cost setup

Instead of purchasing and maintaining your own IT infrastructure, your data and applications are hosted by Google’s highly secured and reliable data centers. Not only do you save on running IT support costs, Google Apps also allows you better use your capital on other business operations.

Increased mobility

As Google Apps are accessible via. the Internet, your staff can be productive as they are able to work at their own desk, out of the office, or even with their mobile devices.

Integration of collaboration work

Team members can share thoughts and feedbacks using Google Buzz and Google Moderator. This allows everyone to have a system to contribute ideas. Besides text, team members can also post images to convey their ideas. Google Calendar also allows team members to schedule meetings easily as everyone’s schedule is shared among each other.

Extendability

With new applications available in the Google Apps marketplace, you can purchase new web applications to extend your business functionalities. This allows your business infrastructure to expand according to business when the need arrives.
