By Biztech2.com Staff

Microsoft has announced that GAVS Technologies, a player in the global IT services and solutions delivery market based out of Chennai, unified its communication infrastructure and enhanced productivity by choosing Microsoft Office 365 post a comprehensive evaluation process including open source and Google Apps. More than 700 users are now using Office 365, and the company is planning for a more extensive migration by increasing the number of users over time. Microsoft’s partner Veeras Infotek enabled the quick deployment.

“The limited access to unified communication, lack of collaboration platform for sharing documents and previous versions of server platforms stood as major road-blocks in the path to bolster productivity, information-sharing and reduction of IT costs,” said Sumit Ganguli, President, GAVS Technologies. “Hence, to keep up with the rapid growth of our businesses and cater to the increasing demand from employees for communication access virtually anytime, anywhere, we sought a compelling cloud solution that would enable us to migrate to the cloud on our own terms. The value of Office 365 is not about the number of features but it’s about 24/7 expert phone support, native integration between solutions, enterprise class reliability, the familiar Office user interface – in other words, the key value of Office 365 is trust.”

GAVS Technologies with its global footprint in America, Europe, Middle and Far East has its employees in many different time zones. The company has expanded and diversified its business and such growth brings with it the challenge of ensuring reliable, efficient communication and collaboration among increasing numbers of employees in more dispersed locations.

Office 365 provides GAVS Technologies a single, unified and robust platform for email, instant messaging, collaboration and unified communication to all users basis employee’s need. It offers access virtually anytime, anywhere, and on almost any device, meeting the increased demand for speedier and tighter collaboration across geographies.

“Overall, we are very satisfied with the stable performance of Office 365 and have been exploring a more extensive deployment of Office 365,” said Sumit. “We are leveraging productivity in the cloud through Office 365 to achieve new levels of collaboration both internally and externally.”

“What’s inspiring about the plans GAVS Technologies has for Office 365 is it really illustrates the power of the cloud by giving its employees a collaborative environment, which would further help to build competitive advantages for the business. Microsoft has given enough reasons to GAVS Technologies to choose Office 365 over Google Apps, as Office 365 is a true productivity suite designed from the ground up to meet business requirements for security, privacy, reliability and manageability,” said Ramkumar Pichai, General Manager - Microsoft Office Division, Microsoft India.
