Why Google Might Be the Answer to Your Problems

NonProfit Hub

From our calendars, to our email accounts, to important documents and spreadsheets, Google is our best friend.

I tested PocketMirror, CompanionLink, Go Contacts Sync, gSyncIt, Google Calendar Sync, and Evernote. Calendar: Google Calendar Sync. gSyncIt would probably be fine, but I already had Google Calendar Sync working before I found gSyncIt. gSyncIt can get my notes into Google Docs, but those don't sync with the Pre and I don't want to have to get Internet access just to read or write a note.

Google Apps is a cloud system that can manage your organization's email, calendar, documents and sites. Many staff also take advantage of Google Calendar to manage their personal calendars.

Google Docs and Google Sites are also used by some groups and not others, depending on the familiarity with these applications and individual preferences.
