Create, Store and Manage Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides in Electra Cloud

We are now part of Siemens’ family. Electra Cloud is now Capital Electra X and Electra E9 is now Capital Electra 2210.

Google is undeniably a big part of our lives. It's not uncommon for electrical engineers and their companies to rely on Google Drive for workflow management and projects.

With numerous files and documentations stored separately, it becomes harder and harder to locate the necessary files. Engineers are then required to spend more time to manually look for different files for their projects. Imagine the time and productivity loss and how tiring it is.

After months of hard work and preparation, we are excited to share with you that Google integration with Electra Cloud and is now a go!

Why is Google integration important?

  • Save time, when everything is in one place on Electra's dashboard.
  • Find and access all your stored files at your fingertips.
  • Easily edit any documents stored in Electra Cloud and Google Drive, without having to replace the document with the latest version manually.
  • Good for managing workflow and collaboration. Locate the most recent and updated version all in one place.

Now, you can create a Google Docs/Sheet/Slide directly in Electra Cloud and dashboard.
