What are the Google Sites benefits for intranet?

Google Workspace Integration

Connectivity with the applications you use every day, including Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Maps, and more.

Great user experience

It is important for company buy-in to create an intranet that is easy to navigate, looks great and functions exactly how you need it to.

Intuitive security and access permissions

Granular page-level permissions keep your intranet private for your Google Apps users. Single sign-on makes it easy to access, yet very secure. Assign owners, editors, and viewers.

Easy to use and maintain

No HTML coding required, editing and updating the intranet is like using a Word doc. It doesn't take much training to get this off the ground.

Customized for your company

Branding is very important and it's a great idea to carry the look and feel of your public website through to your intranet. A well designed and consistent presentation will encourage participation.
