This past Friday night, Agosto, a Google Apps Premier Enterprise Reseller, and its partners at Google and Okta (a company that enables single sign on or SSO) hosted 20 VIP guests from some top Minnesota companies in a suite at Target Field for the Twins vs. the Cubs. To enhance the fun, guests were treated to food, drinks and gift bags loaded with loot from Agosto and Google as well as some of our current clients. Thanks to their generosity, in addition to the Agosto mini-bats and water bottles and Google’s notebooks and pens, there was coffee from Dunn Bros, golf towels from 2nd Wind and baseball hats from CATCO.
The evening kicked off with drinks from a smart bar, which automatically dispenses mixed drinks based on pre-programmed or on-demand recipes and brand preferences. The inventor and company owner, William Metropulus was even there to show us the ropes and it was a lot of fun for guests to pour their own cocktails without ever touching a bottle. We see this creation going a long way and wish the company all the best.
Google, Agosto and Okta presented an executive overview of Google Apps, along with our enabling capabilities and Okta’s SSO prowess. Guests were able to check out Google Apps with a customized single sign on login, which provided an opportunity to experience a sampling of all of the host companies’ offerings.
Using Google Sites and Google Spreadsheets, Agosto set up activities where, throughout the evening, guests had a chance to prove their baseball trivia knowledge and guess the outcome of the game. At the end of the game, two lucky winners took home the grand prizes of an iPad and a new Chromebook Series 5 550.
In a close game that went extra innings, the Twins beat the Cubs 8-7. When the Twins win, it’s a big deal. When the Twins beat the Cubs, it’s a party. Thank you to all of our guests for joining the party with Agosto, Google and Okta, and we look forward to seeing you again soon and to helping you hit a homerun with Google Apps and SSO.
