How to access your email with Gmail

How is Google Apps for Work different than a free Gmail account?

Google Apps for Work is for your business.

When you sign up for Google Apps for Work, you sign up using your own domain name, rather than having an @gmail.com account.

If you’ve been forwarding your work email to your personal Gmail account to take advantage of their user-friendly inbox and various apps, you should consider upgrading to Google Apps for work. It is especially useful for small businesses with 3 or more employees, and for those with employees on the go. You’ll be able to use Gmail with your own domain, manage and share files in the Cloud, access your files on mobile devices, and so much more!

With Google Apps for Work, you’ll receive a number of additional business-grade services not included in the free consumer product, including:

  • Professional email at your domain
  • Enhanced spam filtering
  • Additional storage across Gmail and Drive
  • 24/7 phone and email support
  • 99.9% guaranteed uptime
  • Interoperability with Microsoft Outlook
  • Enhanced security features

Best of all, these applications are powered by Google, but administered by your organization.

Your business, your rules.
