What is Google Apps for Work?

Google Apps for Work is a an office suite of apps including Gmail, Docs, Drive and Calendar. It connects the people in your company, no matter where in the world they are.

Over 5 million businesses worldwide use Google Apps to streamline their business (source).

How does the Kisi + Google Apps integration work?

To set up the integration, any company using Google Apps for their company emails can start synchronizing their digital office keys on employee’s mobile phones in minutes. For technical details on the integration, follow the "installation" link in the "Resources" section at the top of this page.

“With the Kisi & Google Directory integration, our vision of integrating door access into the IT stack is a step closer to becoming reality," says Carl Pfeiffer, CTO at Kisi. "It not only affords a better experience for both administrators and key holders, but also extends automated on-and-offboarding for employees known from other digital tools, such as Google Apps or Salesforce, to the physical office environment.”

Streamline directory management with Google Apps + Kisi

To make Kisi as efficient as possible, you would want your pre-defined access groups to populate with employees automatically. Kisi makes this simple with an out of the box integration using your existing Google Apps workflow, which allows you to sync Google users into Kisi. This will help you onboard and offboard users in a few simple clicks, and automate it moving forward.

Once the integration is set up, as your team grows, and you onboard or offboard new members from your Google account, the integration will will push or remove them from your Kisi directory. This streamlines workflow and eliminates manual error. For instance, when a google user is deactivated/removed on the Google side, the access for this user is removed as well on the Kisi side.

The ideal use case is Kisi's Groups synced up with your Google organizational units. This allows you to control which parts of your organization get the corresponding access rights in Kisi.
