Google employs a collection of web-based applications known as G Suite, which includes the popular Gmail and Google Docs. The search engine giant also offers a wide range of productivity tools users can take advantage of on local or mobile devices, and as the company continues to enhance the user experience, investors can take note of few ETFs with Google holdings.
“Google started me thinking about this as I have watched it add various ‘smart’ functions (think AI) to email as well as increasing ways to help me complete or enhance a document, spreadsheet, or presentation with the Explore function,” wrote TJ McCue in Forbes. “It keeps learning from you and adjusting to you with these features.”
“If you are looking for other creative ways that people and organizations are using G Suite, there are tons of great customer stories that Google shares about how big and small organizations and companies use its free and enterprise-level products that may give you ideas for how you can leverage their cloud software,” McCue added. “I find many of these case studies inspiring, but that is based on how organizations are responding to community needs.”
