Google Apps reached a major milestone in September last year, when it raced past the 1 million enterprise users mark. But the huge lead that its arch rival MS Office enjoys meant that the achievement was just worthy of a perfunctory pat on the back. Now Google has taken a major step that might help popularize Google Apps among business users and help it trim Microsoft’s huge lead to a small extent.
Google has launched an authorized reseller program for Google Apps . Authorized resellers, under this program, will be able to bundle Google Apps along with their own offerings . The company hopes that the reseller program will help it add more medium and large businesses to its expanding user base. Resellers will exercise complete control over customer billing and account management.
