Google brings Springboard and a revamped Google Sites for enterprise customers
Google just announced that it is experimenting with Springboard, a new search service to help enterprise companies that make use of Google Apps productivity suite.
Springboard is a bit like Google Now for enterprise workers and it has been in testing with a small group of selected customers. It provides a single search interface that offers information within the user’s suite of Google products, such as Gmail, Google Drive, and more. This is vital because Prabhakar Raghavan, VP of Engineering for Google Apps says “the average knowledge worker [currently] spends the equivalent of one full day a week searching for and gathering information.”
Moreover, Springboard offers its users “useful and actionable information and recommendations” throughout the day while they’re working.
Google has also redesigned Google Sites, an information portal that accommodates internal company information such as quarterly reports or newsletters. It will support collaboration between users when designing a Google site and let them drag and drop content from services like Google Docs, Maps, and Calendar. Besides, Google Sites has been refurbished so that its content fits any size of screens, such as a smartphone, laptop etc.
Both the series are under test to selected customers. If you want to try it with your organization sign up for Google’s early adopter programs for Springboard and Google Sites.
