Being able to chat in real time, in our multilingual environment will revolutionise operations for our organisation. - Ceallaigh Dee, Family for Every Child
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 29 January 2014
AppsCare® is proud to have been chosen by Family for Every Child, a registered charity, to provide support during the organisation’s migration to Google Apps for Nonprofits. A need for improved email service and collaboration were the key drivers that initiated the change of web platform within the organisation.
Family for Every Child, a registered charity, is a global network of national civil society organisations working with millions of children in institutions, kept in detention and on the streets, as well as those without adequate care within their own families. With a diverse, global network of hands-on national organisations, Family for Every Child has over 300 years’ combined experience supporting children.
The catalyst for change happened when a user lost business critical information through hardware failure (the employee had saved all their work to the desktop as their existing cloud storage was not performing to their needs).
Ceallaigh Dee, ICT Manager at Family for Every Child attended a Google Apps seminar, hosted by AppsCare, which provided a unique opportunity to learn more about Google’s cloud based suite. The organisation also considered Zoho and in house technologies but having researched these options, Family for Every Child chose Google Apps for its close integration and functionality across an Enterprise range of totally web based products.
The migration itself was very quick and relatively painless. Family for Every Child migrated employees scattered across the globe in less than 7 weeks, with minimal post-deployment internal queries.
Ceallaigh commented on the partnership with AppsCare, “The support and guidance from AppsCare was there right from the beginning. Before we commissioned the migration we had spoken to others [Google Apps Partners] but from the minute detail AppsCare went into from the start, we knew we were in safe hands. They went above and beyond what others would have delivered.”
As one of the first organisations to go through Google’s Not for Profit program, Family for Every Child is planning further opportunities with Google and cloud based services.
