Customer Story

BBVA

"At BBVA we see technology as a key sustainable competitive advantage, and staying at the forefront of technology and business practices is key to our success."

José Olalla, CIO, BBVA

BBVA is a customer-centric global financial services group founded in Spain in 1857. We now have employees in more than 30 countries across the world.

At BBVA, we see technology as a key sustainable competitive advantage, and staying at the forefront of technology and business practices is key to our success. Today, we’ve announced that we’re migrating our business to G Suite to increase efficiency and to help our teams to collaborate more easily, regardless of location.

We were looking for a technology that would transform our business operations - not just make our workers more efficient. Integrating G Suite with our own tools will allow us to introduce a new way of working. Employees will have access to all the information they need with just one click, no matter where they are or what kind of device they use, and can reap the benefits of using advanced collaboration tools.

We will migrate our old email systems to the cloud with Gmail. Google Meet, Google Sites and Google Docs will allow our teams to communicate and share ideas more easily - working in a way that they have never experienced before.

With Google Docs, for example, we’re excited about the real-time collaboration benefits and we expect to increase productivity by removing the need to constantly update different versions of a document. We are developing our new global intranet (we call it High Performance Desktop) by taking advantage of Google’s collaboration tools. We are moving from a corporate communications and process management site to a place where all employees will be able to share, contribute and manage knowledge globally.
