Google is hoping customers can spread the word on its suite of productivity apps.

The company on Monday announced a bounty program, offering to pay people $15 for every new user they refer to Google Apps -- a group of business-targeted software that includes Google Docs, Hangouts, and Drive.

"The referral program makes it easy to share Google Apps with your network and show them how they too can use these tools at work," wrote Prajesh Parekh, a Google Apps marketing rep.

The program is currently available to people in the US and Canada.
