This publication follows Sourcingline’s industry-leading research on mobile application developers.

The Google Apps Consultants Leaders Matrix highlights firms that assist at all stages in a typical Google Apps migration including; strategic planning, data migration, change management, employee training, custom development, and ongoing support. The top consultants are able to combine their knowledge of the Google Apps with a deep understanding of their client’s businesses to create meaningful improvements in organizational efficiency.
