The collaborative features in Google Apps are expected to improve teamwork and empower departments and individuals to set up their own projects without the need to involve IT and without being restricted by technology, according to Trinity Mirror.
The move will also free people from mundane daily administrative tasks, such as managing busy inboxes, merging document changes or keeping track of latest versions of documents and sending around numerous attachments.
Trinity Mirror Google Apps product manager Steve Walker said they expect the real-time, collaborative features of Google Apps to enable them to make some real changes to the way we work, leading to a more productive workforce and helping them to become more profitable and innovative.
"For the many journalists in the business who work on tight deadlines and need to find the latest and most relevant information at the drop of a hat, this should prove invaluable," said Steve Walker.
Trinity Mirror’s move to Gmail, along with its move to Talk and Calendar, is expected to be finalised in November.
The company said it also plans to release a new intranet built in Google Sites at the same time and fully deploy Google Docs and SItes across the group early next year.
