Optus launches Google Apps for SMBs


Optus has commenced reselling Google Apps, as Optus OfficeApps, following its announcement in March of plans to do so.

The initial offering includes email, calendar, documents, spreadsheets, presentations and instant messaging, accessible via a purpose-built Optus OfficeApps online portal. The service also includes domain name hosting.

Rohan Ganeson, managing director of Optus Small and Medium Business said, "Optus OfficeApps provide SMBs with a suite of straightforward business productivity tools to help them connect, manage and promote their business more cost effectively. Small businesses can take advantage of the same technology tools and support available to big businesses, but at a lower cost and without the IT worries."

Optus OfficeApps are available to any SMB whether or not they are an Optus customer, on a 12-month contract or monthly subscription basis. There are three pricing options available. Customers can pay $10 per user per month and a $150 connection fee with no minimum term and get support 8am-6pm Monday to Saturday. The same service on a 12 month contract costs $20 per month, without the connection fee. For an additional $5 per user per month, customers get 24x7 support. They also receive a 12-month TrueLocal.com.au business advertising package to help them promote their business online, assistance to migrate from supported mail services and end-user webinar training.

Customers can access Optus OfficeApps from their mobile device without incurring any data charges when on an Optus SMB Mobile or Business Mobile Broadband plan.

To purchase Optus OfficeApps, customers can visit www.optusbusiness.com.au/officeapps or call 1300 093 869. Optus OfficeApps will also be made through all Optus sales channels, including 'yes' stores and the Optus SMB partner network, by the end of the year. The portfolio will also be expanded in the second half of the calendar year to include back-up and storage offerings.
