Google to loosen Apps contract terms

Juan Carlos Perez, IDG News Service | April 26, 2011
Google will allow companies to sign up users for its paid Apps for Business hosted collaboration and communication suite on a month-to-month basis, without having to commit them to an annual contract.

"Taking away a free entitlement, by mandating that new customers with over 10 users have to buy the service, will not be popular and will likely help Microsoft's own small business push with the forthcoming Office 365 service," Cain said. "It is understandable, however, that Google would want to monetize this important market demographic."
