Crucial launches ‘Australia first’ managed Google apps


Sydney-based web hosting company, Crucial, has launched what it says is Australia’s first Managed Google Apps for Work.  

Crucial CEO, David Murray, said the new product - Managed Google Apps - creates a simplified experience “that will resonate with the thousands of Australian small businesses looking to grow online.”

“We use Google Apps for Work everyday and we truly see it as an asset to the way our team can create, collaborate and communicate.”

Murray said the company has focused on delivering a better experience for customers with the roll-out of Managed Google Apps.

“We understand as a technology company that there were some challenges with the maintenance and setup of Google Apps, something that Australian small businesses may struggle with. Our answer to this was to handle the technical aspects of the apps with a managed solution of Google Apps for Work - something we believe will benefit Australian small businesses.”

Crucial’s Managed Google Apps includes a custom, automated on-boarding process, Crucial’s 24 x 7 x 365 support, Google spam protection, web-based businesses tools, storage and custom email addresses.

“Australia’s small businesses are often late adopters of Google Apps as they may not have the in-house technical competency to set up and roll it out effectively.  We’re challenging this by creating automated setup to help them while we manage and support the service. We are redefining the role of the hosting provider in Australia,” Murray said.

Crucial has released its Managed Google Apps to the market and it is available from its website.
