FREMONT, CA: Google acquires Synergyse, the developer of an interactive training app for customers of Google Apps for Work.

Google’s new virtual trainer app will teach customers how to use their Google Apps for Work. Google will make Synergyse Training for Google Apps available for free to all Google Apps customers.

The virtual training app will be made available as chrome extensions. The training provides voice and text interactive modules, searchable by topic and available directly in Google’s apps. As the trainings are hosted in the cloud, they are always up-to-date even as new features roll out.

"Given the enthusiasm that exists for Synergyse already, we want to extend this service to all of our customers," says Peter Scocimara, Senior Director of Google Apps operations. "That is why we're happy to announce Synergyse will be joining Google, and we intend to make the product available as an integral part of the Google Apps offering later this year."

Google's Apps Learning Center currently offers numerous tools and tips to help consumers who are new to the company's portfolio of productivity applications to quickly learn how to use the products and take advantage of the functions embedded in them. The learning center offers everything from quick-start guides for Google email, calendars, video meetings and other apps to product FAQs and tips on how to migrate from another vendor's platform to Google Apps.
