Grupo Amanus moved from its old faulty email system to a new world of collaboration among teams, thanks to G Suite.

Results with G Suite

  • A seamless email structure: more than 822,000 emails sent in the last six months
  • More than 85,000 files created in Drive during the last six months
  • 45% of all files from the companies within Grupo Amanus are cloud based
  • 350 users working in the cloud
  • 35% of all work plans are generally created in the cloud

Grupo Amanus employs almost 700 people and more than 300 independent professional contractors.

Although the group does not face serious competition regionally, the company felt the ever-more pressing need to go digital. Their faulty email system was threatening the development of processes within the company.

“Email would be down two or three times a week for three or four hours, leading to many user complaints. Also, we didn’t receive some emails and others were never sent; they just got ‘lost,’ especially because of the large number of viruses we got in our inbox,” explains David Barroso, IT Systems Administrator for Grupo Amanus.

This is just an example of why their communication system required an update to improve collaboration among employees, and also security. This led Grupo Amanus to search for a provider that could offer quality solutions for their problems.

Meriti, a company with 30-plus years of experience helping companies go digital, started working with Grupo Amanus to begin the migration to Google Cloud’s G Suite tools. Meriti analyzed the problems of system failure, lost emails that were never received or sent, and daily technical support requests for the app, among other issues.

Start with internal solutions

The migration process took half a year before work teams started to notice the benefits of tools such as Drive, Sheets, Calendar, and Gmail.

The company has 350 users who are now managing their documents in the cloud, and in general, 35% of all projects are cloud based. 45% of documents from all compnies within Grupo Amanus are stored in the cloud. The company also started making cloud-based backups of its databases.

Radical change

G Suite tools enable the company to work more productively and streamline its communications. Work teams prefer and benefit from collaborating on a single document in real time and remotely from Drive. In the last six months, company employees have produced and worked on more than 85,000 files.

More than 822,000 emails were sent with not a single email lost. Meanwhile, the constant malware attacks the company experienced with the previous email client is now a thing of the past.

“Since we began to work with G Suite, we haven’t lost any emails. I remember we once had a serious issue with our previous email provider. We were expecting an email from an insurance company authorizing the transfer of a patient, but we never got it because the email system was down. It was cheap, but really bad and unreliable,” says David Barroso, IT worker at Grupo Amanus.

70% of company users access the tools remotely. This has helped optimize productivity and reduce time spent commuting.

“All companies within Grupo Amanus have made this transformation. Our staff is growing more familiar with all the Google Cloud products, and we’ll soon start having training sessions to learn tools we still don’t use. People are satisfied; now we need to apply these new tools even more."
