How Do I Migrate to Google Apps?
Your migration path depends on your current environment. If your company uses webmail, Outlook or any other traditional form of E-Mail then all you have to do is provide your users with a different webmail address and our simple training materials after your Google Apps account is setup. We can even migrate your existing E-Mails, calendars and contacts into your new Google accounts. You don’t have to stop using Outlook if you don’t want to – Google provides a utility that synchronizes Outlook with your new Google Apps cloud services. Users of devices such as Android phones and tablets, iPads and iPhones will enjoy seamless integration of their E-mail, Calendars and Contacts. No matter what you’re using or how you want to deploy Google Apps, we’ll be there to help you every step of the way and once the migration is complete we’ll continue to provide account management free of charge.
How Much Does it Cost?
Pricing is straight forward. Just $50 per account per year. When you purchase Google Apps from United Networks we include free setup and account management for the life of your subscription. If you need help deploying Google Apps we can help with that as well.
