Glasscubes, a privately funded UK company, today announced that its online-based collaboration software has been accepted into the Google Apps Marketplace. The Google Apps Marketplace offers Web-based applications that work seamlessly with Google Apps, including installable apps that integrate directly with Google Apps. Installable apps are easy to use because they include single sign-on, Google’s universal navigation.
The Google Apps Marketplace opened for business at the beginning of March 2010, making it possible for users to find, use and even sell third-party applications. But how can business owners take advantage of it? The Google Apps Marketplace allows users to benefit from the advantages that come with cloud computing by allowing them to integrate third-party apps directly into their existing Google Apps experience.
If a Google Apps user wants to use the Glasscubes application they can install it from the Google Apps Marketplace and have the functionality built directly into Google’s navigation, putting it right alongside Gmail, Google Calendar and so on. Their Google Calendar is automatically synchronised with all the events from workspaces within Glasscubes, enabling them to get an overall view of what’s happening from their Google and Glasscubes accounts. Because Google is about making things simple, once the application is integrated, the user won’t need any additional logins to access it.
“At Glasscubes we are committed to making sure that our application slots into a user’s day-to-day activities as simply as possible. By integrating with Google in this way with Calendars we achieve that”, said Wayne Pope, Managing Director at Glasscubes. Being able to sync what a user is doing can only increase productivity and help small business owners to streamline operations. It’s putting everything they need to get their job done right at their fingertips,” concluded Pope.
Glasscubes was founded to help small and medium-size businesses be more productive without exploding their budget. The easy-to-use hosted software brings together branded intranet, document management, project management and simple CRM (customer relationship management). Whether looking to manage projects, teams or customers in an office environment or remotely, Glasscubes is flexible enough to meet a wide range of requirements.
Glasscubes lets team members edit documents online, preview a document without the need for downloading, send messages directly to each other, schedules meetings, share calendars, arrange conference calls, as well as create or assign tasks to other members of a team. A poll can be created to find out what colleagues think of an opinion or suggestion, and reminder alerts can be sent via e-mail or SMS to draw attention.
