As a business consulting company was looking to offer Google products and services to their client base, they decided to switch their collaboration software - from Office 365 to G Suite by Google Cloud.
The company implemented G Suite in multiple steps:
- They selected a small group of employees to be early adopters that would get used to the platform and generate hype for the software throughout the company
- Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides were among the first apps to get enabled within the company because the early adopter group uses a large number of files and documents on a daily basis
- The organization started the switch from Outlook to Gmail - but enabled their employees to have access to both temporarily, so the transition wouldn't be as abrupt
- Access to Outlook and every other Office 365 app was disabled, and the company fully adopted G Suite
Since the migration process was not done overnight, the company's employees were already used to using G Suite by the time the process was complete which helped with a faster adoption rate and overall satisfaction with the new software.
