Success Story:The Center for Corrective Exercise & Shared Contacts for Gmail®

Shared Contacts for Gmail® is the simplest solution for sharing your contact groups with any Gmail or G Suite user, just like you share a Google Doc or a Calendar

You can share with no limits of contacts, groups or collaborators across your organization! The Center of Corrective Exercise (CCE) knew that, and they were very happy with the results. 

The Customer 

The Center for Corrective Exercise (CCE) is a center located in California, dedicated to help people reclaim physical mobility & strength, by utilizing advanced chiropractic care, orthopedic massage, and corrective exercise. 

The Challenge 

The organization needed to share client information across the company, in order for them to provide a better service by having organized and updated details on their customers. Since the Google Contact Manager does not allow its users to share several contact groups at the same time, neither synchronize them seamlessly, CCE could not share this information among the organization. Thus, facing a big limitation in order to improve their contact management. 

The Solution 

Andrew Clarke (the CMT of the company), decided to try Shared Contacts for Gmail® in order to solve the matter. Now CCE has the possibility to have organized and updated contact groups with all their client information. Furthermore, the organization can easily distribute the contacts to the appropriate person & the synchronization is fast. 

What did they say? 

“This app is awesome! It does exactly what I wanted it to do - share our company client information across our company platform” - Andrew Clark

Success Story: Gemstar Construction & Shared Contacts for Gmail®

Shared Contacts for Gmail® has the mission of filling a gap in the G Suite with an application that adds essential features, giving the cloud environment a real boost, for the ones that make use of it! 

The Customer 

Gemstar Construction is a multi family construction company that provides nationwide services. They were founded in 1983 and have been growing ever since, by completing projects valued over $250,000,000.00. They are also part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and are Texas Department of Housing & Community Affairs (TDHCA) approved. 

Since the company has the goal of maintaining long-term relationships with their customers, contractors and key subcontractors, they needed to have all of their contacts' information updated and synchronized among the entire enterprise

The Challenge 

The Google Delegation presented several challenges for Gemstar Construction; the first one being that it does not allow users to share several contact groups simultaneously. The second challenge it presented was that given the fact that since construction staff is usually on the go (outdoors), it doesn’t always have access to a computer. Therefore they did not had the possibility to see their contacts on their mobile devices, as Google Does not synchronize contacts with Phones & Outlook either

The Solution

Shared Contacts for Gmail® had everything Gemstar needed to give a real boost to their contact management & help them to keep those impeccable relationships they have with their contractors and customers. 

Since the app is seamlessly integrated to Gmail and is supported on mobile phones, there were no third party tools needed, and the users could manage shared contacts directly from their Gmail. 

What did they Say? 

“Great App. It hit on exactly what our organization was missing with Google. Glad we found it. Will increase our efficiency for sure”. - Ben Miller, General Manager

4 Tips to avoid common sales mistakes by using Shared Contacts for Gmail®

The enterprise world  is all about up & downs, and every single business (no matter the size) make mistakes. However, making an error throughout the sales process can be exceptionally catastrophic. You might lose a customer, fail to close an important sale or let potential leads go!

This can happen by simply speaking with the wrong person or missing a key detail about the client. By collecting and synchronizing the right information for that specific contact, you can not only speed up your sales, but improve the entire vending process! Here are some tips to avoid common sales mistakes that can be prevented by collecting better customer data & using Shared Contacts for Gmail®

1.  Find High Quality Leads

Since a lot of the lead’s information  is generated through automatic systems, lead scoring isn’t 100% accurate.  However, you can improve the quality of your leads by adding job titles and social interests. Then, proceed to divide the different types of leads in groups in your Google Contact Manager. 

To create groups: 
-Click on "Gmail" at the top-left corner of your Gmail page
-Choose "Contacts"
- Select the contacts that you want to add to a group
-Click the "Groups" button, then create new.
-Enter the name of the group.
-Click OK.

2. Understand your customer 

Selling is much easier when you have an in-depth understanding of the person you’re selling to. If you know your customer needs and can anticipate their problems, your sales call will be a more enjoyable experience.  You could spend your sales calls asking several questions. However your customers want you to gather important data about them before you pick up the phone. Remember that if you use a CRM that is compatible with Gmail, you’ll be also to synchronize your contacts’ information in your phone with Shared Contacts for Gmail®!

3. Reach the right person

You might be contacting the right company, but if you’re not speaking to a decision-maker then you might be wasting your time... Instead of guessing who makes the decisions,take your time to investigate and put a little extra effort on identifying the key contact. Once you do it, update the information of the contacts immediately!

4. Distribute and coordinate your groups with your team! 

If there are multiple people trying to reach a prospect, you might all lose it! Why? Communication errors reflect poorly on your company as a whole. This gives the potential customer, an impression that your sales and marketing teams aren't organized enough.  Your customers want to feel like they matter and not as if they're just another name on the list. So keep your contact information synchronized  across your domain!

Don't know where to start?

Doing it is easy; since Shared Contacts for Gmail® is seamlessly integrated with Gmail, it only takes a single administrator to distribute the group of leads. Furthermore, everybody can collaborate at the same time to update each contact with the relevant information!

3 Major Highlights from Google Next 17'

As the Google Fans that we are, we are excited to let you know that we had the chance to assist to not one, but two Google Next 17’ events! This past March we assisted to the San Francisco Conference & this May we went to the one in Tel Aviv
Two places completely different and distant but with one thing in common: the deep desire for innovation and the thrive to keep moving forward! 
We were surprised with several announcements, and if you missed them, I strongly recommend you to check the Google Cloud YouTube channel, for a quick recap! 
Now, since we were in both events, we would like to share with you the major takeaways we had:

1- Brace yourself for the Artificial Intelligence and its democratization

Everyone, regardless of their industry, will benefit from the advancements of AI, we could see that when we had the opportunity to meet enterprises from really diverse fields, Like Lush & Palmolive to Amazon & Salesforce. Dr. Fei-Fei Li the Chief Scientist of Google Cloud AI and Machine Learning said that “AI is about to change the way we live and work”. 
Why? Because this AI democratization will effectively make AI tools easier to use, and place the power of machine learning and other technologies into the hands of those without an academic degree! 
AI & Machine Learning aren’t new;  in applications like self-driving cars like Tesla, personal AI systems like your phone Google Assistant, Siri and Cortana. What is a novelty, is how much  easier will be to access them and tailor their effectiveness to our needs. In other words, AI will be available to everyone, through the cloud, not just to use, but to implement.  

Dr. Li. added that  “We stand to witness a greater improvement in quality of life than any other time in history.” And this is because machine learning isn’t there to replace us, but to understand us better in order to help us work faster!

2- Getting in the Cloud is… “The new black”!

Big data is the term we use to describe the large volume of data that floods a business on a daily basis. But how organizations deal with this data, is what matters. If analyzed properly, this will lead to better decisions and strategic business moves. Google believes that to leverage technology in the cloud to get more out of your data, is a huge opportunity! Google has applied AI, machine learning, and other technologies to data into the cloud. This way organizations will be able to draw valuable insights from their data! 

Getting on the cloud means to move your business conducts into storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive, this not only will help you to sync and work on documents or shared apps with ease in real time, but it will centralize your data and help you analyze it better! Alphabet Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt couldn’t have said it better: “Get on the cloud…now”! So stop using your old computer programs to work and join this evolution.

3- Jamboard: Our favorite new toy!

Whiteboards are a great way to  and mind-map and collaborate in order to solve any problem. But when it comes to digitizing, sharing, and integrating the result the whiteboard remains  an analog old school tool. Most of us just take a picture of the results and move on. However the introduction of Google Jamboard will take Real-time meetings into a whole new level! Google Jamboard is a digital whiteboard that merges the worlds of physical and digital creativity. It’s real time collaboration on a brilliant scale that can be done all in the cloud! This enterprise “cloud-connected” whiteboard, might become the center of all meetings. This is due not only  the ability to draw & share in real time all the insights of that meeting, but to improve any diagram, and integrate other types of media as well!  Additionally to than any “jam” session” can get immediately uploaded to your drive, so you can save anything that was illustrated and access it again anytime and anywhere! 
However, we might have to wait a bit longer to acquire it, says Jared Garcia, an IT application administrator! The Jamboard  will retail for $4,999 with a $600 yearly support fee

We enjoyed both events big time, and we hope that our excitement extended to you too! If you would like to enjoy from the latest cloud solutions, shoot us a message! We will be happy to provide you only with the best :) 

Success Story: For Myer Construction & Shared Contacts for Gmail®


Shared Contacts for Gmail® allows Google Apps users to seamlessly collaborate on their contacts and contact groups from their Gmail Contacts Manager or their mobile phone, the same way they share Google Docs or calendars.

The Customer 

Fort Myer Construction is a leading contractor in Washington DC area and has helped the public sector, as well as numerous companies, to build and maintain their infrastructures.  Two of the many noteworthy FM projects are the George Washington Memorial Reconstruction and the Mythical Route-66 roadway rehabilitation.

With more than 600 craftsmen constantly on the road, supported by around 100 admin staff, all employees communicate essentially by phone. However, there was no viable solution to maintain a common, shared address book that would remain updated on each employee’s mobile phone. The idea was to find a solution that could synchronize their contacts with a web service that would push centralized address books maintained by Human Resources and Operations.

The Challenge 

Fort Myer Construction was renewing their entire mobile phones fleet for all their 600 employees with T-Mobile over a one-week deployment period and needed a solution that could be deployed in such short notice.They needed to restrict the use of their drivers’ mobile phones to only contacts and calls, and wanted the common address book  to be maintained only by a few admin staff. No EMM on the market can blocks contact editing although it was a strong requirement.

The Solution

In no more than 2 days, Gapps Experts Inc., created a G Suite domain for fort Myer, configured groups and MDM features, provisioned the 600 Google  accounts,  installed Shared Contacts for Gmail®  on their domain, uploaded the common contact list, shared it across all the users’ Google contacts and set access permissions according to the users’ authorizations.

Once the devices were delivered to the employees, the common contact list was populated in their phones. The application allows the contact list to be kept up-to-date by the HR Department..

What did they say? 

Jesse Castro (the HR Manager of the company) said 

“The marriage between Google Apps™ and Shared Contacts for Gmail® was the perfect answer to our fleet management requirements. We did not find any MDM solutions that was offering such fast deployment as well as granular contact sharing services”

This is because  Shared Contacts for Gmail® uses the same visual standards as Google Drive for an integrated user experience!
