In April we introduced G Suite Essentials so teams can adopt popular apps like Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Meet, to collaborate, stay connected, and get more done, even while apart. To increase productivity, many teams and organizations need tools customized to their unique data and workflows. But getting access to the technical resources to build tailored apps can be difficult—if not impossible.
To help, today we’re making AppSheet, Google Cloud’s no-code app-development solution, available at no charge to G Suite Essentials customers through Sept. 30.
AppSheet empowers anyone—including non-technical employees with no coding knowledge—to more easily and quickly create business applications. This means that anyone in an organization can build apps that are secure, flexible, scalable, and seamlessly integrated with G Suite, and data from other platforms including Salesforce, Microsoft Azure and Office 365, Dropbox, and AWS, all without putting a strain on engineering or IT resources.
Paired with G Suite Essentials, AppSheet opens up even more possibilities. It’s easy to create, read, update, and delete Sheets data directly from AppSheet apps; save and access documents, images, and files to Drive from AppSheet; open Meet from AppSheet apps for virtual meetings with team members and customers; and use Docs as dynamic templates for reports, emails, and PDFs that are saved to Drive.
AppSheet has already driven new efficiencies and faster processes for G Suite customers. For example, Solvay, an international advanced materials and specialty chemicals company, built no-code apps on AppSheet from data stored in Google Sheets. Today, Solvay uses approximately 1,000 deployed apps, tailored to the needs of specific plants, to replace paper-driven workflows.
While non-technical users can accomplish these kinds of important improvements, IT departments also retain centralized control of the features, permissions, and security of apps built with AppSheet. In addition, advanced capabilities, including AI and ML features, are easily embedded into apps to help drive productivity without requiring specialized developers or data scientists.
Watch our Next OnAir session, Supercharge Productivity With No-Code Apps Using AppSheet, available now on demand, to learn how KLB Construction leveraged their data to build mobile and desktop apps using AppSheet.
