Search Everything in G Suite with Google Cloud Search

by Denise Hazime on February 16, 2017

 

Leave it to a search engine company to make finding everything your business needs easier. Now, instead of opening Gmail and searching through Gmail, then opening Google Drive and searching there, you can find everything in G Suite through one tool with Google Cloud Search. Now, you don’t have to email Jane and ask her to share a file - now you can just find the file with Google Cloud Search.  

Prevents Time Wasted in Finding Information

Google Cloud Search breaks down silos in companies and allows everyone to find the information they need right away. A recent report from McKinsey says that the average employee spends 20% of their time searching for information. Google Cloud Search reduces this effort immediately by allowing workers to search across all Google Apps in G Suite, including Gmail, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides and Google Drive.  

Securely Search for Only Items You Are Allowed to See

Google Cloud Search only gives users access to things they are allowed to see. If, for example, your accounting department’s files are listed as only accessible to accounting personnel, everyone company-wide won’t get access to those files.

 

However, this does mean that if you have been playing fast and loose with security permissions, you should consider locking down access to files that require it now.  

It Even Comes in App Form

Google is all about the mobile experience, and Google Cloud Search is available as an app for Android and iOS. When you open the app, you’ll be able to search your fellow employee’s schedules to see if you can make an appointment with them, start a Hangout, find a contact that a fellow worker may have but you don’t, and much more.  

 

How Can I Get Google Cloud Search?

To say that this is a business-critical product to any company is an understatement. Google Cloud Search is being rolled out to G Suite Business and Enterprise users. If you’re interested in upgrading to either, contact UpCurve Cloud today to find out more.
