Solution: Google Apps for Business & Postini GMD
After evaluating a number of options IPscape chose Google Apps for Business as their preferred solution for email and unified communications in Australia, Asia and the UK.
“We chose Google Apps as our preferred solution because it delivered all the functional requirements of the previous on premise solution with the additional agility and collaboration that comes with cloud solutions”, said Darren Younger, CIO IPscape. “Key benefits included the size of the inbox, being able to collaborate on documents as a team, being able to travel without laptops and not having to house and maintain servers for a commoditised service like email.”
After communication with various Google partners, IPscape chose Cloud Adapt to carry out the deployment and migration for its employees. “We were impressed by their thoroughness in planning and their focus on change management,” recalls Simon Bourke, CEO. “We are a very tech-savvy organisation but we didn’t have the time to learn a new platform, teach our staff or perform the migration ourselves. Ben and his team from Cloud Adapt worked what seemed to be a well-oiled process.”
Solution: Google Apps for Business
“Cloud Adapt’s commitment to customer service was one of the winning aspects of the decision,” recalls Conner. “We needed a partner that would stand by us – and with Cloud Adapt, they do.” The company started with a transition to Gmail as an email solution, and was up and running in no time. “Installation and set-up took Cloud Adapt about half a day or even less, followed by comprehensive tailored training” states Conner. Pinnacle FX credit the built-in search capabilities in Gmail and all Google Apps with helping team members find information fast, no matter where it exists in the organisation saving hours per day.
Google Apps has proven to be a huge success at Pinnacle FX. The Pinnacle FX team loves keeping track of the money and hours saved by their hosted, hassle-free solution. Working across multiple platforms and devices, saving hours of downtime and lost productivity, and reducing actual and expected hardware and software expenses by $8-10K – along with giving team members and clients the open, secure collaboration they need – makes Pinnacle FX glad to have made the switch to Google Apps.

Pitt St Diner
Solution: New website
“Being a relatively new restaurant, we desperately needed more advertising presence. We tried using what we could handle being a Facebook page and traditional advertising but until we approached Cloud Adapt, a website was a little out of our comfort zone!” Darryl Ferguson, owner of the Pitt St Diner. “Cloud Adapt were brilliant in understanding what my requirements were for the site and how I wanted it to look and feel. They got it spot on! What pleased us most is that they have also now trained us how to update the back-end so we can keep the site updated with our ever-changing menus and events. We are getting plenty of new business and positive comments because of the site. Thank you so much team!”
