End users can use the familiar Microsoft Outlook interface for email, contacts and calendar as they transition to Gmail and Google Calendar.
50 times more storage than the industry average
Each employee gets 25 GB for email storage, so they can keep important messages and find them instantly with built-in Google search.
Gmail is designed so employees can spend less time managing their inboxes, and more time being productive. Time-saving features like message threading, message labels, fast message search and powerful spam filtering help employees work efficiently with high volumes of email.
Mobile email, calendar and IM access
With several options for accessing their information while on the go, employees can be productive with Google Apps even when they're not at their desks.
At no extra charge, Google Apps supports over-the-air mobile access on iPhone, BlackBerry devices, Windows Mobile, Android and many less powerful phones.

With synchronous replication, your data and activity in Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Sites is simultaneously preserved in multiple secure data centers.
