SlideRocket lets you import presentations from Google or Microsoft PowerPoint or create them right within the program, and then access them from any PC, Mac, or Linux computers. You can add audio and share presentations with your Google Contacts. It also includes analytics for measuring audience engagement.

Cost: free.

To take advantage of the Google Apps Marketplace offerings, you need to sign up for a standard, education or Premier Edition ($50 per user account annually) account. You also need to establish a domain name for your business -- it can be a new one, or you can register an existing domain. With Premier Edition, once you establish your account, you get 25 GB per account of Gmail storage plus 1 GB per user of Google Docs storage and 10 GB plus 500 MB per user of Google Sites storage. And with Premier Edition, your business can download and install apps for everything from planning a project to creating an invoice. They not only work as independent solutions, they often interact with the native Google applications from Google calendar to Gmail and more.

I have used all apps during my work and experience as Google apps are best for business work.

Most of apps can be used free for one month, After that you've to get premium.

re: Top 15 Google Apps For Business
I'm surprised to see WORK[etc] isn't on this list, it's one of the few business management apps that offers two-way sync integration for Google Calendars, Google Contacts, Google Docs, as well as offering a Gmail-integration gadget.

WORK[etc] is all-in-one, it combines CRM, project management, time tracking, and billing into one web app. I've found having all of your data in one place, combined with Google Apps integration gives me the ability to manage my business from anywhere. The gmail integration is particularly useful for us, as I can turn emails into new leads, projects, support cases, timesheets, and other items directly. Worth a look!
