Google Workspace in your Retail organisation

  • Manage activities with a shared task list in Google Sheets or a team calendar in Google Calendar.
  • Communicate from wherever you are with Google Meet.
  • Keep in touch with one person or a group via Google Chat.

Manage your store operations with your laptop, tablet or smartphone.

  • Store all your product visuals, launch videos, marketing campaigns, promotions, employees’ contact details, and store policies in Drive.
  • Store managers can simply enter their sales data & inventory in Google Forms.
    From there it automatically flows into Google Sheets.
    This is instantly shared between headquarters, stores and distribution centers.

Securely share new marketing material & digital brand assets

  • Collaborate with external agencies & vendors by using Drive to sync shared content to the cloud.
  • Manage rich-media assets, visuals, videos, GIF’s & logos across every retail channel.

Grow your team, offer trainings & onboard new employees quickly and easily

  • Use Google Forms to create applications forms to speed up the hiring process.
  • Interview job applicants from your office or from your home using Meet.
  • Create a website to streamline your onboarding process using Google Sites. It’s a one-stop destination for important information that any employee (or a select group) can access anytime, from any device.
  • Organise online trainings for multiple locations at once using Google Meet.
  • Record the live training and then make this recording available on-demand on your website or on your Google Drive so anyone can take a refresher course anytime they need it.

Make it easy for your employees to find important information in one place.

  • Create a website to share internal news, articles, links to your projects, product documents, internal presentations, promotional materials, and training content.
  • Decide to whom of the employees you give access.
  • Search and find information across Google Workspace and other content repositories with Cloud Search.

Empower store associates for better customer service

  • Store associates always need to have the latest product information at their fingertips. They can use their tablets to answer any question (product specs, promotions, inventory, videos, …).
  • Immediately share information (schedules, inventory lists, ongoing promotions and even PR updates).
  • They can reach out to their colleagues using Google Chat.

Tradera

The difference between the top competitors and everyone else is business agility and in the era of technology and cloud computing business agility is synonymous with data warehouse modernisation.

Tradera, Sweden’s leading online commercial marketplace, embraced this concept when they left behind their legacy on-premise servers in exchange for the cloud, and they trusted Devoteam G Cloud to lead them there. Now Tradera runs most of their workloads in Google Cloud, using BigQuery to analyse their business and offer real-time insights to enhance their decision making.

GANT

No challenge is too mighty or out of reach for our exerts, so when GANT needed to achieve ambitious goals, they looked no further than Devoteam G Cloud. A flagship store in London that needed to be up and running in less than a year with a globally distributed team may have seemed insurmountable.

Still, we knocked it out of the park by rolling out Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), making communication and collaboration among their teams more accessible and more efficient. And we did it in 3 months. Now, GANT continues its history of innovation by collaborating in the cloud with Google Workspace.

Reitan Convenience

Moving to the cloud is largely about the user’s experience. Reitan Convenience needed a platform to support communication among employees working from home, on the road and at customer sites.

Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) offered a medium of collaboration ‘anytime, anywhere and on any device’. Devoteam deployed 800 users in a Google Workspace rollout that took less than eight weeks.

Happy Socks

Happy Socks realised the benefits of going Google with a cloud partner and sought our help to optimise their Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) collaboration experience. Having the right tools is great, but inadequate knowledge of the appropriate application won’t get you far.

Our specialists offered Google Workspace training focused on software migration, understanding integrations across Google Workspace tools, 2-step verification and advised on best practices.
