Description

Office Automation with Google Apps

Generously funded by a Libro Credit Union Prosperity Grant, The TechBoost Program supports the growth and development of small businesses in Windsor-Essex by providing affordable training in information technology tools and products for business. TechBoost is an initiative of Hackforge, supported by the WindsorEssex Small Business Centre.

Skill Level: Beginner

Audience: Owners or employees of small businesses who want an introduction to new cloud-based tools for productivity and organization.

Pain Points:
Do you need a more efficient and affordable way to manage your business's files, calendar, and customers?
Do you need flexible tools to collaborate with your team in real-time?
Do you want to be able to access your company's tools and data anywhere, anytime and on any device?

Why take this workshop? Cloud-based tools offer flexibility, security, automatic updates, increased collaboration, and lowered capital expenditures.

Goal:

By the end of this workshop, you'll have a better understanding of what G-Suite is, what tools and products are available and ways you can utilize the best ones to automate and enhance your business processes.

We'll cover:

  • What is the G-Suite and what will it cost?

  • Examples of how the tools can be used for small business

  • Some of the amazing integrations and partnerships available

Participants of this workshop are also welcome to attend any of our Open TechBoost Nights at Hackforge where you can bring your laptop and try out new tools in a casual environment with other business owners.

Materials: If you would like to follow along using a laptop computer during this workshop, please feel free to do so. A computer is not required, however.
