Gathered here are 10 serious Google services that can boost your productivity, get your team on the same page, and market your company. You probably already use some of these services for fun — like Hangouts — but they have powerful business applications as well.
Google Forms, a capable and easy-to-use survey tool, is a free Google Drive add-on you can download at the Chrome Web Store (which also has free and paid business apps from third-party vendors). Create your survey from question templates (choosing between types such as multiple choice, checkbox, scale, or text answers), then either post it in a Google+ Hangout or distribute it via email. Recipients submit the completed form by clicking a button at the end. The survey itself and the responses are all automatically stored on your Google Drive, and you can view the results in either summary form (with auto-generated graphical aides) or in a spreadsheet.
