Unily Connect series: G Suite

In this series, we look at potential integrations with Unily. By taking advantage of Unily Connect, you can unite your digital landscape and provide a single pane of glass experience for all your users. Our one-stop-shop approach will result in more consistent and efficient user experiences for your users, which in turn will increase platform adoption and productivity. This week's article will focus on integration with G Suite, a suite of cloud computing, productivity and collaboration tools, software, and products.

Unily and GSuite integration

Integrating applications with Unily Connect lets you cut through the noise created by multiple systems, streamlines logging in by having a single sign-on, and provides one highly polished, consistent user experience across your entire digital landscape. Below we highlight some of the potential benefits for your business when integrating Unily with G Suite.

Supercharge employee satisfaction and productivity with G Suite integration

According to a study by Ultimate Software, 92% of employees say that having technology that helps them do their job efficiently affects their work satisfaction. Unily's single pane of glass gives you the ultimate flexibility - integrate any OAuth 2 application into your digital workplace. Unily will empower your people to incorporate productivity-boosting tools and technology while experiencing unrivaled consistency and design with our award-winning UX

While G Suite is an incredibly powerful set of software, integration with Unily lets you pick and choose which features could benefit your people the most. Unily lets you build widgets, as straightforward or as complex as you like, that can be reused anywhere in your digital workplace. For example, you may want to create a Google Calendar widget to enhance your time management skills. Add this widget to your landing page to view and manage upcoming meetings and events. Do you also need rapid access to specific files or folders for your weekly meetings? Create a Google Drive widget, so your files are always just one click away.

Siloed teams are a significant challenge in the modern enterprise, a problem that can be solved with a digital workplace platform. This is your opportunity to target siloed teams with little to no access to crucial information. Unily gives you the intuitive tools to create a personalized landing page, complete with helpful resources, like access to G Suite functionality, to inspire your people further and increase productivity. Employ Unily's robust targeting capabilities to find teams or individuals and solve real gaps in employee experience by offering them the technology they need to be at their best.

Always find what you need with Google Cloud search

Switching between applications can be inefficient, as you need to learn different navigation and search behaviors, which can break your concentration. By integrating GSuite with Unily, you can integrate and employ Google Cloud search to discover enterprise-wide information, from your urgent emails in Gmail to your priority documents in Google Drive.

Together with Unily's unified search center, you have your entire digital workplace at your fingertips - find what you need and pick up where you left off. But not everyone needs access to the same data. With Unily, you can create personalized search centers for your teams, so you can, for instance, target access to secure files or repositories only to select individuals or groups. Ultimately, integration lets you focus on your people, creating digital experiences that will benefit them the most.

Through integration, you're also able to import user data from Google Groups into Unily, so you can search your entire people directory and stay up to date with any changes in your team structure or role function. This is also another instance where a holistic approach can help bring your people together to work more collaboratively.

Prioritize workloads with Google tasks 

With the modern enterprise becoming more complex each year, and the attention economy vying for your attention (Gleanster Research reveals that B2B firms in the US alone spend over $5.2B a year on content creation) being able to focus on your to-do lists is imperative to hitting targets and successfully managing your projects. But while opening up notepad is certainly one option, it also means that notes can get easily lost in the myriad of information you have stored.

One solution is with integration and adding Google Tasks to your Unily digital workplace. Create a Google Tasks widget in Unily and position it in a prominent position, such as above the fold on your homepage. Here you can view your upcoming business tasks as well as personal tasks. You can also target personalized task lists to your team members, so they are aware of any forthcoming deadlines.

Your Google Tasks can link to your Google Calendar, which means that you can put your workload into context with a visual reminder of when tasks are due - all from the comfort of your Unily landing page.
