Grupo Lomas road to digital transformation and remote work
Grupo Lomas’ information technology team had been using Google Workspace Legacy Edition for years, however, it was never properly implemented and integrated within the organization. Furthemore, it had several limitations that did not match the current organization’s needs. In addition, this edition had several functionality limitations and did not provide the collaborative environment required. The cost of having such an incomplete service was too high, pushing them to acquire another vendor’s licencing licensing in order to have tools such as spreadsheet and word processing software. This situation had become critical due to the pandemic, as the company had the impending need to decentralize, be fully compatible with remote work and reduce the use of physical paperwork to a maximum.
The entire IT team, working hand in hand with Nubosoft’s Google Certified Collaboration Engineers successfully went through a Google Workspace Enterprise Standard implementation project compliant with Google’s guidelines. After the implementation project, every single user migrated to the new platform, including their legacy email and files, gaining several improvements in both collaboration and productivity, such as:
- Better communication using tools as Google Chat, Meet and Gmail
- A substantial reduction in their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
- Local support provided by a Google Cloud Premier Partner
- A complete collaboration and productivity environment
- Unlimited storage
- A single administration panel with Data Loss Protection and Mobile Device Management tools
- Automated and managed backup
- Centralized governance and audit capabilities provided by Google
Through the usage of these new tools, Grupo Lomas was able to leave behind legacy solutions. Nowadays, all their collaborators can work remotely and the use of physical paperwork has been drastically reduced, unifying the entire organization with faster and more efficient communication tools both internally and externally. Nubosoft provided training for every single one of their end-users and IT administrators, enabling them to become an organization with a record high of adoption in just a few months.
