Google Apps a Winner for Small Business

On the whole it appears that Google Apps will win the hearts and minds of small businesses.  "Out of the box", Google Apps is much simpler to use, easier to implement and less costly when compared to Microsoft's Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS).  The biggie in the previous sentence is the "much simpler to use" proclamation. With Google Apps, end users can use Google Docs either as a full suite of productivity software (at least word processing, spreadsheets and presentations) or as an "in the cloud" storage location for any document in its native file format - all in a familiar, intuitive interface.  Microsoft SharePoint, hosted or not, is still not as friendly for the end user (read that as - small business owner and staff) without the help of outside expertise. Google Apps users, at least in the small business environment, just get up and running much quicker with Google Apps.  At our Geeks On Call franchise in Charleston, SC we have recently added Google Apps Authorized Reseller to our shingle for the reasons cited above (and others).
