Google's latest acquisition is owned by an Indian-origin entrepreneur; as the company now plans to scale training offerings for its Google Apps to a more diverse clientèle.

Google has acquired a business technology start-up founded by Varun Malhotra, the Indian-origin CEO of Toronto based Synergyse. The company was launched in 2013 with an aim to teach users how to use Google Apps.

However, Google did not disclose the financial details of the deal.

Google Apps Operations Senior Director Peter Scocimara said in a recent blog post that Google and its thousands of Google Apps customers have been ‘excited’ about Synergyse. Synergyse, by building a virtual coach inside of the Google Apps interface will help Google users get up to speed quickly, including when new features are rolled out. The Google Apps product suite, which involves on-line features like Gmail, Calendar, Drive and Docs, was built to administer cloud-based productivity and communications and is now used by over two million paying businesses globally.

Synergyse also said that by joining the Google Apps team, it can expedite its mission because the company will now be working closer with the teams that build Google Apps.

Mr Malhotra specialises in training and strategy and has over 10 years experience in the enterprise space.
