With more and more businesses making the migration to Google Cloud, knowing what is bundled with your G Suite services is vital to ensuring your company is working as efficiently and optimally as possible. One easily overlooked, but very important, service under the G Suite umbrella is Google Cloud Search.
A key aspect of every employee’s standard workday routine is finding & gathering necessary information. Whether the information is a critical component in order to make a strategic, informed decision, or it’s a simple search for a document or co-worker’s phone extension number, searching for various information can be one of the more complicated tasks.
The problem starts to arise when companies realize that employees waste a lot of time looking for information, which in turn results in not only inefficient & low-quality decisions, but large amounts of resources going to waste (time & effort). According to a study by McKinsey, the average employee spends nearly 20% of their time looking for information.
That all changes with Cloud Search, a unique product that ensures companies have the best of Google’s Search Engine technology available to their business.
Whether bundled within G Suite, or used as a stand-alone product to connect to all your third-party applications and data platforms, Cloud Search helps employees quickly, easily, and securely find information.
For most businesses involved in information-intensive industries, Cloud Search can completely revolutionize an employee’s day-to-day tasks. Some of the more relevant industries include:
- Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare
- Financial Services
- Communications, Media, & Entertainment
Cloud Search is fully compatible with all of the Google G Suite products. From Gmail and Drive, to Docs, Sheets, Slides, & Calendar, users are able to take advantage of Cloud Search across a vast array of company tools, rapidly finding data and information to help answer questions and instantly produce related suggestions.
As security and user permissions update over time within your organization, Cloud Search will simultaneously reflect these changes. The tool incorporates almost instant updates to user and group access – ensuring that the users will only be able to view search results directly related to information they already have access to. With recent industry news coming out concerning security in the cloud, it’s important to remember that Cloud Search is built on Google’s infrastructure – which comes with the scalability, performance, reliability, and top-notch security that you’d expect from Google.
