Collaboration is the lifeblood of business. It is how we facilitate information flow between individuals and teams, it has a direct impact on productivity, and at the end of the day, it dictates the success of businesses as a whole.

In the modern day business environment we have all become hyper-focused on speed, i.e. how do we get our work done as quickly as possible?

There are a plethora of productivity tools out there, like DocuSign, Plangrid, Smartsheet, O365, and more (all part of the Egnyte ecosystem), which businesses deploy in order to help meet employee needs and optimize their output. One of the most popular productivity tools out there is Google’s G Suite. Beyond Gmail, Google Docs has become a go-to for businesses to collaborate and get their work done. We’ve identified a few of the main reasons businesses are choosing G Suite for collaboration:

  1. Seamless Experiences – G Suite provides a seamless experience from Gmail to Google Calendar, Google Docs and everything in between. Businesses today are trying to consolidate their services rather than multiplying them. When they utilize the G Suite their employees do not need additional mail clients or collaboration tools, it is all right there. Egnyte for Gmail allows our customers to easily attach and share Egnyte managed files right from within the Gmail interface.
  2. Ease of Use – All of the tools that are a part of G Suite have an ease of use that users love. Whether they need to hop on a quick call to discuss something live via Google Hangouts or they are needing to quickly schedule a meeting with Google Calendar. Everything is highly intuitive and helps make it a go-to for collaboration.
  3. Real-Time Editing – One of the biggest reasons businesses love G Suite for collaboration is Google Docs. A long time advantage of Google Docs is the ability for users to create, access, and edit Google documents, sheets, and powerpoints in real-time. This means they can work on the same documents at the same time, no matter where they are located, which is invaluable for highly distributed teams working on multiple projects.

Today, Egnyte announced a brand new G Suite integration that combines the productivity benefits of Google’s productivity suite with the governance benefits of the Egnyte platform. Users will now be able to utilize the content creation features of G Suite – creating, accessing, and co-editing Google Docs – right from within the Egnyte platform, which allows businesses to maintain secure permissions and monitor all content activity in real-time.
