WORK[etc] Named Google Cloud Authorized Technology Partner with CRM, Projects & Support Platform

Today, WORK[etc] has become one of the first Google Cloud Authorized Technology Partners.  Google will help WORK[etc] design richer product integrations with G Suite services, in turn providing more added value for our customers.

G Suite on WORKetc

Deep integration with the powerful Google Cloud (G Suite) suite of business tools has long been one of the hallmarks of WORK[etc]. This seamless integration gives WORK[etc] users access to the system’s business management and CRM tools without leaving G Suite and vice versa.

Today, WORK[etc] has become one of the first Google Cloud Authorized Technology Partners.  Google will help WORK[etc] design richer product integrations with G Suite services, in turn providing more added value for our customers.

“WORK[etc] built the first version of our CRM widget for Gmail for G Suite over two years ago and from that we launched integration with Google Drive and Synchronization with Google Contacts,” said Daniel Barnett, CEO of WORK[etc].

“The fact that WORK[etc] customers have publicly written over 200 five-star reviews on the G Suite Marketplace just shows how valued the two products working together is.  Being one of the first G Suite Authorized Technology Partners means we can continue to build better integrated business management solutions and provide our customers with a better G Suite experience, from on-boarding through to helping them build better businesses.”

WORK[etc]’s support for G Suite has already helped a number of our valued users pave the way towards company growth. National forensic due diligence firm Bluewater Transaction Advisors leveraged the system to streamline their business processes, providing the foundation for the company to essentially double their business.

Bluewater founder and executive director Robert W. Bowles singles out the interplay between WORK[etc] and Google Drive as one of the most useful weapons they’ve added to their arsenal.

“With the custom fields in WORK[etc], we can link Google Drive files into fields in WORK[etc]. Our employees go to one place and have links to exactly what files they need in Google Drive for the current project,” said Bowles. “For us, that’s a huge benefit, something I would recommend to any small business doing something similar to what we are doing.”

Linking Google Drive to WORK[etc] to access, upload, and attach files and documents is but one aspect of the system’s G Suite integration. With it, users can also:

  • Sync Google Calendar with WORK[etc]’s calendar – great for getting project deadlines or sales events on your mobile calendars.

  • Use the Gmail widget to turn any email into a new sales lead, update a project, assign a support case or create a new invoice sale.

  • Sync contacts between WORK[etc] and Google Contacts, creating simple rules to identify personal contacts versus business contacts.

WORK[etc] will continue to build on its new status as G Suite Authorized Technology Partner with the release of its Version 5 Business Management Platform for G Suite, Chrome, and Android devices in 2014.
