 Google Docs

Google Docs makes creating and collaborating on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations simple. Google Docs is part of Google Premier Apps, and provides full integration.  Not only can you create and edit your own Google docs, but you can also have multiple people view or edit together.

With Google Docs, you don’t have to manage multiple versions of the same attachment from different people. You always control who has access, whether it’s just yourself, your team, or your whole organisation. You can even publish your Google docs to the world quickly and easily. The Google Docs web application is accessible from anywhere, and you can even sign in and view docs from your mobile phone.

Google Docs allows files to be automatically saved and backed up to prevent loss of important documents.  Adding the Free Gears component allows you to have offline access to your documents, and is easily synchronize your data.
 Google Docs provides you with access to the following applications:

  1. Spreadsheets
  2. Documents
  3. Presentations
  4. Online Document Management

These features are available when you purchase Google Apps Premier Edition.
