"Work the Way You Live" - Google Apps for Work

This is a partial transcript of my Radio Interview with Google Apps for Work user, Terry Whipple.  You can listen live at:

Hello...and Welcome to BlogTalkRadio.  I am Dane DEUTSCH your host....coming to you with The Ararat Connection.  We are really excited about our show today.  There is nothing better in marketing and sales than to sell a product or service that really adds value to a customer...and then for that customer now using the product to become a real fan ...or even a raving fan.  That is what Google Apps has literally done for dozens of our customer companies and organizations we service and support.  

We have some companies with one user, and many that are more than 50 users….all the way up to over 100 users.  No matter the size or location, we don’t have to go on location to help them become Google Apps users, we simply can service and support them from anywhere in the world.   
Better yet...our customers can now use their email, shared calendaring, contacts and documents from anywhere, anytime, and on any device....and do it more securely than their current email system most likely does.  That is the beauty of GA….no need to be “stuck” or have to go to the customer’s site…and....the customers can truly free to “move about the cabin….or the globe” that is....and all for a cost that is way less than the real value of the product.

So, we are here today to share with you...our listeners a great product that can really make your  life better, and that is Google Apps.  Google has a saying, “Work the way you live!”  We want to find out what that means in REAL LIFE for one Google Apps organization and user.  Terry Whipple.  

Terry is a customer of ours and He is the Executive Director for Economic Development in Juneau County, western Wisconsin.  Terry joins us today to tell us how, why and what he did to move his organization to Google Apps.
