Solutions: Collaboration & Productivity
"G Suite lets our international team take full advantage of a cloud productivity solution. The scalability of G Suite has completely revamped how we approach collaboration and accessibility when it comes to daily work." - Byron Fruit, Senior Business Operations Analyst, Aerotech
From accountants to engineers, Aerotech connects its entire company with G Suite and deployment partner SADA Systems, a Google Cloud Premier Partner. G Suite apps such as Docs and Sheets are used daily by teams to streamline work. Group editing in the cloud helps eliminate past Aerotech issues with version tracking and maintaining access permissions, boosting both team productivity and document security. Whether it's a spreadsheet for engineers or meeting minutes in Docs, employees can simultaneously collaborate on files without having to wait for feedback from individual team members.
"I spend less time doing email and support, and more time getting my job done using G Suite," says David A. Holm, Director of IT at Aerotech.
G Suite resources have also improved international and domestic communication within Aerotech. Team members frequently rely on Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat to talk internally and with clients. Calendar has become an invaluable resource for team coordination that can now include assigning time zones to events and embedded URL support. Aerotech developers are exploring Cloud Search integrations to further bolster team productivity through improved internal search tools.
Mobile work has seen similar efficiency gains thanks to G Suite, as highly secure cloud file access allows staff members to remotely access and store files from any device. Aerotech employees no longer have to go through legacy security pain points, such as utilizing a VPN for internal access or having to maintain unwieldy group network drives.
For Aerotech IT administrators, G Suite bolsters data security by being both browser and cloud-based, which prevents breaches from a lost device and makes it simple to replace a laptop or computer when needed. Intuitive platform management tools simplify account permissions and file migration when Aerotech hires or transitions employees.
"SADA Systems laid it all out clearly and we didn't have any surprises," says David. "We followed the SADA migration playbook carefully. No deadline or email posting was missed. We commend SADA on their clear support structure, nearly immediate response time to requests, and sensible resolutions to problems."
