Will you benefit from Google Apps for Business?

Google Apps for Business is a cloud-based service offering major applications and tools such as email, documents and calendar sharing that a company needs for effective collaboration. The service is most suitable for start-ups and small businesses with up to 10 employees however there is no limit and many large companies benefit from using Google Apps.
