The objective of the TRUSTe certification is to make it easy for IT managers to assess the practices an policies of an application vendor. With TRUSTed Apps certification, organizations have a third-party independent body that certifies that GroupCamp Project meets TRUSTe’s privacy program standards. This is a key consideration when adding a cloud-based application from the Google Apps Marketplace.
GroupCamp's robust integration with Google Apps currently allows business users to improve their productivity by processing their emails and adding tasks to them directly from their Gmail interface. They can also link their projects to the files present in Google Drive. By installing GroupCamp Project to their Google Apps domain, account administrators make the most of Google Apps and GroupCamp's collaboration applications and therefore enhance group productivity.
“TRUSTe’s customized certification program for Google Apps Marketplace makes privacy policies for web-based apps more transparent so that organizations can better determine whether an app is appropriate for their particular usage or not,” said Chris Babel, CEO, TRUSTe. “Becoming certified allows GroupCamp to differentiate its apps from others increasing the number of downloads from the Google Apps Marketplace.”
