"Google describes Synergyse Training as a “virtual coach inside of the Google Apps interface, built on Google Cloud Platform.” Until today, pricing started at $10 per year for individuals, $10 per employee per year for businesses, and was free for students. There was also a case-by-case option for companies with more than 5,000 employees. But now Synergyze Training is becoming available at no additional cost for all Google Apps users — in the meantime, existing customers can keep using it, and anyone can download the Chrome extension for free.Google acquires Synergyse, will integrate the Google Apps training service 'later this year' | VentureBeat | Business | by Emil Protalinski
