More than 30 million users within businesses, government agencies, schools and other organizations world-wide have switched to Google Apps (adding over 3,000 businesses per day). Unfortunately, many of them cannot use all of the applications within Google Apps since it does not have any built-in document compliance or records management features to meet organizational standards and legal regulations.
