Touted as easy to use, Google Groups for Business gives users access to email, documents, folders, calendar, and videos. Unlike the free standard edition of Google Apps, Groups for Business costs about $50 per user per year, and may include a set-up fee. But the business edition also provides an uptime guarantee, either via Google or an authorized reseller. Companies also can disable ads in the Web interface; Google offers a free trial. "Google Apps saves us millions of dollars over five years over any of the alternatives that we looked at and provides us with worldwide disaster recovery, unprecedented integration, and device independence," said customer Todd Pierce, vice president of IT at Genentech, in a video.
