  • Increased employee productivity

  • Enterprise ready solutions

CHALLENGE

Corel has reinvented itself over the years through an expansion of its offerings in the Graphics, Digital Media and Productivity space. The company’s management team recognized the need to adopt a simplified yet scalable infrastructure on a variable cost model.

“We were actually very impressed with the transition to Google Apps. Our experience with Agosto was great. I like that Agosto focused on change management, bringing us the tools to support this major change for our business.”

Mark Fernandes, Vice President Information Technology, Corel

SOLUTION

The company had already migrated from an on-premises CRM to Salesforce.com, and next identified Corel’s email and collaboration systems to move to the cloud. As a part of the evaluation process, the team looked at Google Apps and Microsoft 365. Corel’s Vice President Information Technology, Mark Fernandes, shared the company’s story.

“We were already a Google customer, using Postini to manage spam and email security,” said Mark. “We were also a Microsoft customer, running on-premises Exchange. With extensive global operations, including in Taiwan, China, Japan, the Philippines, Europe, and North America, we have teams working 24/7. We reviewed both Google’s and Microsoft’s options for email, scheduling and calendar, and wanted to communicate better and reduce costs. We found Google particularly attractive, with Chat, Sites, Docs and the ability to collaborate.”

“We have successfully decommissioned three Exchange servers, which has saved on IT costs. Google Docs and Chat also save on communication costs, plus we are enabling employees to collaborate in real-time from anywhere, on any device. I’m really pleased with the results financially”
