Google Cloud Results

  • Increased productivity
  • High platform availability
  • Greater flexibility

Improved user experience

Logistics companies are going through major changes. One of the main requirements to improve positioning in a highly competitive market are solutions providing customers with security, trust, and agility.

To meet user expectations, Colombian company Envía Colvanes began using Google Cloud and Google Workspace’s solutions.

The company, which provides document, parcel, and product shipping services to over 1,400 destinations in Colombia, faced the challenge of helping its infrastructure grow dynamically and increasing productivity to provide customers with the immediate, optimal services they expect.

First stage: changing organizational culture

Given this need, the company decided to deploy Google Workspace’s solutions to foster organization-wide collaborative work, build more agile processes, and transform organizational culture.

"The best thing about this, and certainly the main challenge, was creating a culture around digital transformation. Thanks to the extraordinary results, collaborators have realized that this process is actually underpinned by a change in people's mindset and their ability to adapt rather than technology," says Diego Alejandro García Ramírez, the National Training and Wellbeing Director of Envía Colvanes.

Using Google Workspace apps, for example Google Classroom, Sheets, Slides and Forms, the company’s employees have realized they can implement projects faster and collaboratively.

"Google Workspace provides superb support for our dynamic growth by configuring and licensing office automation tools. This asset is available in record time, making it easier to meet requirements."

This has resulted in more professionalism, bolstered by a training process in a virtual learning environment. Its benefits include helping employees make the most of their time, learn at their own pace from home or work, test their knowledge in a simple way, and get results and feedback immediately.

During this process, support from partner Nuva was essential to build training spaces for all working teams.

Second stage: improving infrastructure

One of the most important projects for Envía Colvanes in its partnership with Nuva has been adopting Google Cloud solutions to build a more robust infrastructure. This includes Cloud Storage for data storage and Compute Engine to run dedicated virtual machines for database and contact center workloads.

"We realized that Envía Colvanes is a company with a wide-ranging strategic vision, consistently seeking innovation and development. Helping them deploy Google Cloud technologies was a natural choice to meet those goals."

Efrain Ospino, Head of Projects, Nuva

For Alexander Barbosa Tovar, the company’s Head of Technology, an essential step before deploying Google Cloud was assessing the advantages of using cloud-based apps.

One of the reasons behind the company’s choice of Google Cloud was the ability to have cutting-edge data analytics technology to allow the company to streamline the reporting needed for decision-making.

Another important factor was knowing that behind Google Cloud’s solutions there is a team of experts ready to step in at all times to answer any questions or concerns.

Deployment results

From a technical standpoint, Google Workspace's tools have made it possible to create a Comprehensive Management System for centralizing information and reviewing, updating, and approving documentation that was previously handled in several processes.

This means current versions have the approval traffic they need, so processes can have enough information to run normally, make changes without losing document ownership, and create alerts in case of modifications.

Moreover, for Envía Colvanes, having high availability for tools is transformational. It democratizes access to information, as employees can connect from any device with an Internet connection and access the data they need to perform their tasks.

The solutions are also easy to use. The interaction between Google Workspace's apps provides features that optimize and improve user experience and ensure it is enjoyable.

"Users can now interact with tech more easily, make the most of their time, learn with quality content, and browse in a simple, intuitive way, while administrators can easily create content and generate clear, accurate reports."

By adopting Google Cloud solutions, the company has also developed cloud instances that in turn have enabled communications between the company's main nodes throughout Colombia.

Envía Colvanes plans to keep innovating and migrate more services to the cloud to make its infrastructure more versatile, secure, and easier to manage.

"We continue to work with them, suggesting more high impact solutions to strengthen their operations and cut down costs," explains Efrain Ospino, Nuva's Head of Projects.

The company plans to add more data analytics and artificial intelligence services to get the data it needs in time to make business-improving decisions.
