When Paul Lones, SVP of IT at Fairchild, first suggested using Google Apps to power messaging for the $1.2B chip maker, his staff thought he was joking. But after adding up the benefits - anywhere/anytime access, significant savings, a simplified IT environment and ease of use - the team got serious, implementing Google Apps, archiving and web security. Migrated 6,000 users in 20+ countries to Google Apps in 6 months.
David Rumberg, Partner/CIO, Sports Basement, recently chose Google Apps over Microsoft Exchange for this mid-sized specialty retailer. Now everyone has anywhere/anytime email and can collaborate online in real-time. Plus, staff time is freed up to build an online community, increase website conversions with Google Analytics and share best practices.
