Randstad Has Gone Google

One of the biggest companies based/founded in the Netherlands has chosen Google for their mail, calendar and office infrastructure.

Randstad is one of the biggest staffing companies in the world and has some 29,000 employees working from more than 4,500 branches in 40 countries around the world. [cut] We have a workforce of younger, web-savvy employees and we heard the feedback that they are quite familiar with Google tools like Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive and Google+ Hangouts in their personal lives, and on a variety of devices, and that they’d like to use them at work too. Also, because the Google tools are all integrated, we wouldn’t run into the problem of having employees across offices and countries having to work with several different pieces of technology that don’t work well together.

I think this is good news for Randstad, because they are an ideal fit for a solution like this. With so much branch offices it is ideal to just use a cloud provider for these services. This is good news for Google of course but also for G-company who as a reseller will be the integrator and providing migration and training.
