Handle Announces Full Integration With Google Apps for Work

First Cross-Platform Workflow System for Google Apps for Work Seamlessly Integrates To-Do Lists With Gmail & Calendar

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2015) - Handle, a cross-platform workflow companion for iOS, the web, and Apple Watch, today announced full integration with Google Apps for Work, helping knowledge workers better manage their daily tasks and meetings from their e-mail, calendars, and To-do lists, all from within a unified system designed to optimize attention, efficiency, and time.

Thousands of employees at top companies and organizations including Apple, Uber, Rackspace, Stanford, and Google itself have already integrated Handle with their work e-mail and other Google-based enterprise apps. Beta users are showing an overall 20% productivity gain after an onboarding process which typically takes less than an hour.

"I'm thrilled that Handle has already become the workflow solution for so many people at some of the world's greatest tech companies," said Shawn Carolan, Handle CEO. "We believe full integration with Google Apps for Work will make Handle even more valuable for the millions of organizations which depend on them."

Handle Features
Since launching last February, thousands of users have quickly embraced Handle as a workflow system, inundating the company with requests for enterprise-grade features. The company is delivering on those user requests by layering the product with work-facing features and functionality:

  • Handle for Desktop Gmail & Google Apps - See To-Dos inside Gmail as a sidebar, or toggle to fullscreen to see To-Dos alongside Google Calendar. Turn e-mails or any webpage into To-Dos with a single click.
  • Rapid E-mail Triage - Simplified & streamlined e-mail gestures free Handle users from their inbox to stay focused on their To-Dos. 
  • To-Do Delegation & Receipts - Delegate To-Dos to colleagues or friends via e-mail -- even non-Handle users. When e-mail requests are turned into To-Dos, Handle automatically notifies sender to confirm request.
  • Calendar Agenda View - See today's To-Dos and calendar items together for a unified view of all upcoming tasks for the week, month, and year.
  • Enterprise Grade Syncing - Secure, cloud-based login syncs Handle across iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC, Tablet, and Apple Watch for access everywhere.
  • Filtered E-mail Notifications - Get notifications for e-mails designated important.
  • Natural Language Parsing - Handle for web (coming soon to iOS) analyzes and parses user data to automatically set up reminders, due dates, and more.
  • Siri Integration - Tasks told to Siri instantly converted into Handle To-Dos.
  • Project Planning - Break large projects into smaller To-Dos in order to track daily progress in relation to the overall project picture.
