Hosted Sergents Thu, Jan 11, 2007

It’s been a couple of months since I moved The Sergents to Google’s Hosted Apps, and I’m here to give both thumbs up. Currently we’re only taking advantage of the email and calendaring, which works really well. It can be a bit of a pain if switching entirely over off an old system. There’s no importing of mail into Google’s mail. Sure, contacts, but not the actual mail. I can imagine that would create a nightmare for support personnel, but it sure would make it nice. The alternative seems to be to exist in both the old realm and the new - simultaneously. As with most technology there doesn’t seem to be an end game. Rather a long series of blunders, rehashing, reloads, reboot, and reconfigurations. Somewhere along the way it ends up being better. I think. Maybe it’s more that it became so horrible and busted that any semblance of working order is euphoric.
