We have also created a central repository that allows users to monitor memo and electronic request submissions and track usage'.

'The convenience that our customers realise with our Google Workspace add-on is huge, which is why it drives the adoption and long-term retention of our eSignature services. When customers use our apps as integrations, they're less likely to churn. Our trial-to-paid subscription rates are two times higher when customers use the integration from Google Marketplace versus when they just download our app from our website'.
Tony Ramoutar, Senior Product Manager of Integrations, DocuSign
'The breadth of the Google ecosystem is super important for us. A platform that allows me to build once and deploy on multiple apps – that's a win'.

Frequently asked questions
The Google Workspace Admin console allows admins to control access to specific apps. It can also help admins to distribute apps and control their access to data by groups within a given organisation.
Apps used within Google Workspace are available to users at no additional cost. Some third-party apps require additional licensing as determined by the independent developer of each app, but there is no incremental cost from Google to use these apps. Custom apps are also free to use except for apps built with AppSheet, which does require app users to have an AppSheet licence.
AppSheet is a no-code product integrated with Google Workspace for building applications. It's a service integrated with Google Workspace that enables anyone to rapidly build applications that digitally transform and streamline work, using a simple drag and drop interface that requires no coding experience to use.
Apps require no additional Google Workspace licence costs to build. Using Workspace APIs and SDKs are free of charge.
