Google Acquires Synergyse

Google has acquired Synergyse for use as training tool for Google Apps; the terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
 
Google states,
 
“When learning a new skill, it’s helpful and comforting to have a coach by your side, every step of the way. Whether it’s a golf instructor giving tips on your swing, or a parent sitting (calmly!) in the passenger seat while you learn to drive. The same is true when learning a new technology. That’s why we — and thousands of Google Apps customers — have been so excited about Synergyse.”
 
The company states,
 
"Google Apps was built to provide powerful cloud-based productivity and communications, in an easy-to-use set of applications. And today our Apps product suite, which includes Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs and more, is now used by more than 2 million paying businesses around the world. As more businesses sign up, we wanted an elegant way to scale our training offerings to our customers and our customers’ users."
 
Synergyse is a simple online training platform which is most widely used in the enterprise space, which is built using the Google Cloud Platform. With voice and text interactive modules that are easily searchable by topic within the app, Synergyse provides help to users to get up to speed quickly.
 
Given the enthusiasm which exits for Synergyse already, Google wants to extend this service to all their customers.
 
The company states,
 
“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. In the meantime, existing customers will continue to have access, and new customers will be able to download the Chrome extension for free while the integration is underway.”
 
Google concluded by saying,
 
“By providing the right help at the right time, Synergyse will help our customers with the critical task of change management in the enterprise, and bolster the training and support programs we already offer today."
