This post is part of App Awareness, our month-long series where we spotlight a different Google Apps Marketplace application every day in April. This week we’re focusing on admin tools that help make Google Apps domain administrators’ lives easier! The applications we chose to highlight demonstrate excellent integration with Google Apps, and we either use and love the product or know a lot of other people who do.

RunMyProcess – Build and Run Integrated Workflows in the Cloud

RunMyProcessWhen companies move to cloud-based messaging systems like Google Apps, they often have to leave behind configurable workflow systems that were available in their on-premise systems, like Lotus Domino. Moving to the cloud is a real paradigm shift for IT departments, and many are left seeking a cloud-based replacement for their former workflow system.

RunMyProcess, a member of the Cloud Alliance for Google Apps, provides this, integrating with over 1,200 cloud solutions including the most popular ones like Google Apps and Salesforce.com.

Google Apps Integration

RunMyProcess offers deep integration with Google Apps, allowing you to trigger tasks in Gmail, Google Spreadsheets, Docs and more from within a workflow process. You can also create custom gadgets that are embeddable on Google Sites. For example, you could build a workflow for budget approval, or PTO tracking, and post that on your intranet via Google Sites.

Why We Like It

RunMyProcess is a great solution for companies moving to Google Apps that need a solution for managing workflows and processes. The use-cases are wide-ranging, from Human Resources to Finance to Sales, all parts of your organization can benefit from using RunMyProcess. Some are favorite features include a drag-and-drop interface that allows users to create processes without the knowledge of coding and custom gadgets, which allow users to build and integrate tailored objects to existing Google Apps features. And at $40/user per year, it’s a pretty good deal.

To download RunMyProcess, check out the app in the Google Apps Marketplace.

Can you guess tomorrow’s app?
Hint: This tool provides enterprise grade identity management.

About App Awareness Month

App Awareness MonthAt BetterCloud, we’ve seen first hand the impact Google Apps can have on a business: extreme cost cutting, streamlined management processes, enhanced collaboration and mobility and much more.

During our time as an independent software provider focused 100% on the Google Apps platform, we’ve interacted with thousands of organizations using Google Apps and we’ve discovered one common trend: knowledge and awareness of third-party applications that extend and enhance Google Apps is extremely limited.

This April, we’re devoting the BetterCloud blog to educating Google Apps users on the wide array of applications available for Google Apps today. These products not only enhance native Google Apps functionalities, but bring a diverse range of services from CRM, to expense management, process and systems management and more to your Google Apps environment. More importantly, adding these applications to Google Apps allows you to retire expensive legacy software licenses and creates a more cohesive organization.
