The Google G Suite is a set of tools which make the life of all developers considerably easier. However, it’s not as simple as just installing it and implementing it into your own business. First, as a business owner, you must make sure that it is compatible with your existent tools. This is a problem that many businesses have run into.

The good news is that it’s a lot easier now to implement the G suite on top of Microsoft’s Exchange Server, which is one of the most used tools in the enterprise sector.

Google and Microsoft together

Google will make a series of changes that will allow users to better interact with Google’s assets pertaining to Microsoft. Both the Microsoft Exchange Server and Office 365 are platforms on which Google assets haven’t always done great. With the new implementations, Google Calendar should be fully operational on top of the two mentioned Microsoft services now.

Multiple platforms

It seems that Google is taking this interconnectivity across multiple platforms as it will become available on both PC and mobile.  Lockups between Google Calendar’s processes and the ones in the Microsoft services should be handled a lot easier now. The best news, however, is the fact that this change is coming to mobile and not just PC. The mobile spectrum is ever growing and is constantly providing reasons why developers and companies of all types invest more in mobile these days.

That being said, having Google’s support so that businesses can implement a mobile solution including Google Calendar and Microsoft Exchange Service is great news for businesses that want to stay ahead of the curve.

There are several services that provide information about when a person is free or has something planned for a specific date. Users within companies will gain access to this kind of information about their colleagues’ thanks to features like Find a Time or Scheduling Assistant (Outlook).
