4 Enthusiastic Guys with Yellow Shirts in Sunnyvale

Following our American tour in September, LumApps is pursuing exchanges with Google’s ecosystem in the United States. Our sales team and CEO, Sebastien, attended Google Cloud’s event in Sunnyvale, California on December 6-7, 2016.

4 Enthusiastic Guys with Yellow Shirts in Sunnyvale

An event for Google’s customers

The Google Cloud Customer Team hosted a marquee event for IT admins, Global Transformation leaders and CIOs amongst their US customers. The two days were filled with various formats such as individual product breakouts, roundtable sessions and masterclasses, sprinkled with myriad networking opportunities.

The aim of this summit was to discuss about the way to manage change and lead IT transformation across organizations. Because they are the doorway to end users, attendees at this event commanded an excellent pulse about what features and products are often requested by end users and how they will be received.

Go further with Recommended Apps

The Google’s team leading the Recommended Apps for G Suite Program tackled this meeting as an occasion to present solutions newly recommended by Google on both business and internal issues.

LumApps had a booth during the whole event where people could come for a demo.

During two roundtable sessions, Thomas Geeraert, LumApps US Sales Manager, introduced LumApps collaborative and social enterprise portal to an audience looking after applications to go further with G Suite.

Bergelectric shared their use cases on LumApps

For IT teams in the room, the testimonial of Bergelectric, one of the largest, privately held electrical contractors in the United States with 2,400 employees, was the perfect example of a successful project of internal communications improvement with LumApps.

Steve Johnson, CIO at Bergelectric, explained how they replaced Sharepoint, in addition to WordPress and a User Directory, with LumApps. They reduced costs by using one tool instead of three, and added social and smart features like user profiles, seamless integration with G Suite or customizable design and style.

“Now that the solution is live and appreciated by users mainly to read news or to find documentation, we want to go further by adding the social offers of LumApps in order to make people become contributors directly in our corporate portal.”

Buoyed by this enthusiasm, we are ready to prepare the NEXT Google event which will take place on March 7th/10th, 2017. The Show Must Go On!

“We are conscious of the great opportunity of being Recommended and are grateful to the very competent Google organization and in particular to Thorsten Luedecke for his assistance during these two wonderful and intense days,”
– Philippe Gless, VP Sales & Marketing at LumApps
