Google AppSheet: A Powerful Tool for Corporate Businesses in Australia



What is Google AppSheet?​

Google AppSheet is a low-code development platform (LCDP) that allows businesses to create custom mobile and web apps without the need for professional developers. This makes it a great option for medium-sized and corporate businesses that don’t have the budget or resources to hire in-house developers.

There are many benefits to using Google AppSheet for corporate businesses in Australia. Here are just a few:

  • Speed – Google AppSheet can help businesses to create mobile apps much faster than traditional development methods. This is because businesses can use drag-and-drop tools to create their apps, without having to learn how to code. This is important for SMBs that need to be able to respond quickly to market changes.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Google AppSheet is a cost-effective way to develop custom apps. This is because businesses don’t need to hire in-house developers or pay for expensive software licences. Businesses only pay for the AppSheet licences that they need, and there are no additional fees for hosting or maintenance. Additionally some Google Workspace SKU’s come with Google AppSheet included. Reach out to Kasna to find out which ones.
  • Flexibility: Google AppSheet is a flexible platform that can be used to create a wide variety of apps. This includes mobile apps, web apps, and even chatbots. Businesses can even use AppSheet to create apps for customer service, sales, marketing, and more.
  • Security – Google AppSheet is a secure platform that uses industry-standard security measures to protect businesses’ data.
  • Reporting – Google AppSheet provides businesses with detailed reports on app usage. This data can be used to track the effectiveness of apps, and to identify areas for improvement.

Appsheet is Mobile first

One of the key features of AppSheet is its mobile-first approach. AppSheet apps are designed to be used on mobile devices, and they take advantage of the latest mobile features such as touch gestures, location awareness, and push notifications. This makes AppSheet a great choice for businesses that want to create mobile apps for their employees or customers.

If you’re a business in Australia that is looking for a way to improve your efficiency and productivity, then you should consider using Google AppSheet. It’s a powerful tool that can help you to create custom apps that meet your specific needs.

In addition to the benefits mentioned above, Google AppSheet also offers a number of other features that can be helpful for corporate businesses in Australia. These features include:

  • Collaboration: Google AppSheet makes it easy for multiple users to collaborate on app development. This can help to improve the quality of apps and reduce the time it takes to develop them.
  • Data integration: Google AppSheet can be used to integrate with a wide variety of data sources. This allows businesses to use their existing data to create more powerful and informative apps.
  • App distribution: Google AppSheet makes it easy to distribute apps to users. Apps can be published to the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, or they can be deployed internally within a business.

If you’re interested in learning more about how Google AppSheet can benefit your business, then you can visit the Google AppSheet website. There, you can find a wealth of resources, including tutorials, case studies, and pricing information.

GEN AI and Google Appsheet

AppSheet is currently working on incorporating generative AI (Gen AI) features into its platform, which will make it even easier for users to build powerful and sophisticated apps without any coding experience.

One of the most exciting Gen AI features coming soon to AppSheet is the ability to create apps from scratch using only natural language. This means that users will be able to simply describe the app they want to build in plain English, and AppSheet will automatically generate the code and create the app for them. This will make it possible for anyone to build apps, regardless of their technical skills.

Another Gen AI feature coming soon to AppSheet is the ability to generate code snippets for specific tasks. For example, if a user needs to add a new feature to their app, they can simply describe the feature in natural language, and AppSheet will generate the code snippet needed to implement the feature. This will save users a lot of time and effort, and it will also help them to avoid making coding errors.

Overall, the Gen AI features coming soon to AppSheet will make it even easier for users to build powerful and sophisticated apps without any coding experience. These features will be especially beneficial for businesses and individuals who need to build custom apps but don’t have the resources to hire a team of developers.

Here are some specific examples of how AppSheet users might use Gen AI features in the future:

  • A small business owner could use Gen AI to create a custom app for managing their inventory and customer orders.
  • A non-profit organisation could use Gen AI to create a custom app for volunteers to track their hours and activities.
  • A student could use Gen AI to create a custom app for studying for a test.
  • A software developer could use Gen AI to generate code snippets for specific tasks, such as adding a new feature to an existing app.

The possibilities are endless! Check out this video from Google Cloud for more information on how Appsheet works with Gen AI.

What is a low-code development platform?

Low-code development platforms (LCDPs) are software development environments that allow users to create applications with little or no coding experience. LCDPs typically use a graphical user interface (GUI) to drag and drop components to build applications. This can significantly reduce the time and cost of developing applications, as well as the need for skilled developers.

If you are considering using a low-code development platform, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, you need to make sure that the platform you choose can meet your specific needs. Second, you need to make sure that the platform is easy to use and that it has the features you need. Finally, you need to make sure that the platform is secure and that it can help you to comply with industry regulations. AppSheet from Google ticks all these boxes.

What is a citizen developer?

Citizen developers are non-technical employees who use low-code or no-code development platforms to create software applications. Citizen developers can use these platforms to create simple applications, such as reports and forms, or more complex applications, such as workflow automation tools and business intelligence dashboards.

Does Google AppSheet come bundled with Google Workspace?

How secure is Google AppSheet?

AppSheet is secure by design, and it offers a number of features to help protect your data, including:

  • Data encryption: AppSheet encrypts all data at rest and in transit. This means that your data is protected even if your device is lost or stolen.
  • Single sign-on: AppSheet supports single sign-on (SSO) with a variety of identity providers, including Google, Microsoft, and Okta. This makes it easy to manage user access and helps to prevent unauthorised access to your data.
  • Role-based access control (RBAC): AppSheet allows you to define custom roles for users, which determines what data they can access and what actions they can perform. This helps to keep your data secure by limiting who has access to it.
  • Auditing: AppSheet tracks all user activity, including who accessed what data and when. This information can be used to investigate security incidents and to identify potential security risks.


In addition to these features, AppSheet is also subject to a number of security audits and certifications, including:

  • SOC 2 Type 2: AppSheet is SOC 2 Type 2 compliant, which means that it has been audited by an independent third party to ensure that it meets the requirements of the Security, Organization, and Control (SOC) 2 framework.
  • ISO 27001: AppSheet is ISO 27001 certified, which means that it has implemented a comprehensive information security management system (ISMS).
  • PCI DSS: AppSheet is PCI DSS compliant, which means that it has implemented the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which is a set of security standards designed to protect credit card data.
