And the Best Google Apps Presentation Goes to...

Both of our Google Events were a success!

Google Apps Event - Andrew

In Naperville, we not only were able to create a fun atmosphere for our guests, but we were able to once again support one of our near and dear customers, Chicago Marriott. We love supporting our community and clients!

I2013-04-18-HarleyEvent-1f you recall the weather on April 17th, we had terrible storms coming our way, but that didn’t stop us. In fact, over 80% of our guests who had signed up attended the event. Of this percentage, the average company size was about 129 people.

Our guest speaker, Tim Smith, discussed how a 100 person company moved from Microsoft 365 to Google Apps and reduced the company’s costs by $100,000 annually! In addition, we had great questions asked by our guests which focused not on whether to move to the cloud or not, but instead how to get the migration done.

In Milwaukee, the Harley-Davidson Museum was a hit! Despite the flooding, we had an outstanding attendance. On average, the attendees were from 478-person companies.
Our speaker, Justin Gale, discussed how Google products have changed the way his company works. As a result, we saw a lot more technical questions dealing with:

  • the move from Lotus Notes to Google
  • spreadsheets
  • Microsoft Office and the ability to import documents
  • device management platform
  • ownership of data (Google vs. Microsoft)
