Saicom Voice Services has been appointed as a Google Cloud Partner (GCP) in South Africa and has completed its own migration to G Suite that has resulted in enhanced productivity and team collaboration in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the requirement to work from home during the lockdown in South Africa.
“Our clients continue to look for ways to collaborate online and our appointment as a Google Cloud Partner means we can assist them to bring their teams closer together in a digital world,” said Saicom Chief Technology Officer, Greg de Chasteauneuf
Since its migration to G Suite, Saicom has seen productivity increase between 20% and 30% and the ability to have multiple people collaborating on a document simultaneously, across any device, has been an efficiency game-changer. This coupled with the seamless integration into existing cloud platforms like Zendesk, Pipedrive, Monday.com and Trello has ensured a more fluid workflow.
“Our migration to Google G Suite meant we could move from working in the office, to working from home almost immediately after the lockdown was announced. Coupled with our UC-One offering, we have enabled our team to work from anywhere, seamlessly and, more importantly, securely,” de Chasteauneuf added. “And we are on standby to do the same for clients.”
Google Meet is available for free until September 2020, to clients migrating to or rolling out G Suite across their organisations.
