“Going Google” with millions of businesses around the world

via The Official Google Blog by A Googler on 10/19/09

Each day, thousands of companies choose to “go Google” — that is, switch to Google Apps. Over two million business and 20 million users in over 100 countries and more than 40 languages have adopted Apps for their workplace, and we’re happy to welcome companies around the world such as Konica Minolta, Rentokil Initial and TOTO that have just decided to go Google. These companies no longer have to deal with the hassles of managing email servers or rolling out software updates, and their employees now enjoy the convenience of shared documents and calendars, Gmail and more.

Since we first asked for your “gone Google” stories in August, we’ve seen thousands of tweets and hundreds of comments explaining how and why your company decided to go Google with Apps, as well as with other Google enterprise products such as Google Postini Services and the Google Search Appliance. Jeffrey D. from Ottawa, Canada told us that with Apps, he “was able to set up a new business in minutes with email, calendar, docs, and sync with [his] BlackBerry.” @happymacs from San Diego, CA tweeted how they liked the ability to “search every single email received in the past 2.5 years in under 2 seconds”; while @Appfrica highlighted the sobering fact that the cost of an alternative software solution would employ a person in Uganda for a month.

Today, we’re excited to support this global momentum with the expansion of the “Gone Google” initiative to additional countries including the U.K., France, Canada, Japan, Australia and Singapore. We hope our messages — in train stations such as Paddington, La Défense and Shinagawa, and at airports in Singapore, Toronto, Dallas and beyond — help companies, schools and organizations learn all about the benefits of going Google with our enterprise products. Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect to see both here in the U.S. and abroad:

If you’ve already gone Google, you can share your company’s Gone Google story with us, or use some of our tools to help spread the word about switching to Google Apps. We hope you’ll be part of the story.
