With over 5 million businesses now using Google Apps for collaborating between employees now is a great time to be able to do some Google Apps training. The adoption of Google’s productivity suite has skyrocketed over the last few year, and with small business being the suites prime customer training on these products is more critical. As the Google Apps ecosystem continues to expand and evolve, with new services emerging around Chromebooks, Vault, Drive and Android, it can be tough for businesses to keep up with all the new tools, tweaks and iterations.
Enter Synergyse. Synergyse, a Toronto-based startup, launched this April and is designed to help businesses keep up with changes to Google’s litany of web-based software services and provide an interactive training system to get employees up to speed. Synergyse focuses purely on the educational element, offering an interactive and scalable training system for employees. The startup’s training platform covers Gmail, GCal and Drive at launch, with more to come soon, offering access to training directly inside each application. We had the the google apps training system demonstrated for us using the Gmail App and it was really easy and straight forward to use.
The real beauty of the system is that it operates inside of the app while you are using it. The system is available to users at any time, so employees can learn at their own pace and roll through training sessions whenever they have time. For its tutorials, it doesn’t actually use video. Instead it lives inside your Google Apps account, overlaying instruction on your screen as you go, prompting people to click through Apps and input actual info from within their Gmail accounts.
Synergyse is a perfect match with The Toolbox – cost effective technology training for small business. If you are going to Tech Day Camp this year you will get a free year subscription! If you don’t go it’s only $10 per year right now, so it’s pretty close to free. You can watch a short video here:
