00-Empty-Email-TabDo-it-yourself website service provider Weebly has integrated itself with Google Apps, aiming to let users better manage their businesses in a central location. With this move, users can maintain their online presence while also accessing their Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, and Google Hangouts from a dashboard-like area.

Dan Veltri, Weebly’s Chief Product Officer, says that the company is focused on helping entrepreneurs gain access to resources in order to start building their business. In terms of an online shop, part of that effort includes setting up email addresses, website domains, and more. It can all be handled with just the click of a button on Weebly’s platform.

Weebly is offering this feature as part of a 15-day free trial. Afterwards, it can be purchased for $45 per year per user — a 10 percent discount from the normal price Google charges.
