About the client
BinarApps is an IT company that develops custom internet solutions and mobile applications for international clients. The company has a team of nearly 70 programmers who have implemented over 100 projects for companies from various industries.
The decision to switch to G Suite was motivated by several factors. The first one involved various issues with email. BinarApps had used the services of a hosting company. At times, email was down for minutes, which hindered the company’s business activity. They needed a place where employees could store their data and work together on documents and sheets.

Standard business email accounts were replaced with Gmail. In addition to improving the reliability and security of e-mail (thanks to two-factor authentication), it allowed them to use a single, universal login for many integrated services (e.g. Slack).

Google Drive enabled them to share resources and work simultaneously on various documents.

The Google Meet tool, integrated with the calendar, enables improved communication with clients and partners, and allows better control over “meetings” across multiple

Both the employees and the management received the change positively and were very happy with it. First of all, it facilitated their daily work. After switching to the G Suite, administrators can efficiently manage users and grant employees access to specific files. An important change was also the fact that having a company account made it easier for employees to log in to various services.
