“The functionality of G Suite was exactly what we were looking for,” said Nathan. “But, what really swung it for us was the cost. When we sat down and did the calculations and compared it to the costs for providing the same service with Microsoft Exchange and Office, there were significant savings over 150k per annum with G Suite that made it a really attractive proposition.”
Roadchef were recommended Cloud Technology Solutions (CTS) by Google directly and spoke to them about how they could help with the migration. CTS are a leading provider of Google and G Suite Solutions with many years experience of helping organisations leverage the benefits of the cloud.
In particular, their CloudMigrator solution is the world’s leading multi-platform migration tool, trusted by hundreds of organisations to move millions of messages, appointments and contacts to the cloud. It enables the migration of an entire source messaging system to G Suite and supports migration from many different platforms including Microsoft Exchange.
CTS appointed a dedicated project manager to handle the migration and they sat down with key Roadchef employees and developed a comprehensive plan for migrating over the existing email users and setting up new users.
“We only had around 100 existing user accounts that we wanted to migrate over,” explained Nathan. “But we had approximately 400 new users we wanted to setup as part of the switch-over.” CTS used CloudMigrator to successfully migrate the existing users. This unique tool has moved millions of users to G Suite with zero user downtime, simple setup and configuration and detailed reporting.
