Google Buys Developer of Training Platform for Google Apps for Work
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 training 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."
