Premier Foods is using Google Apps to improve collaboration and help it reduce costs and restore profitable growth.
Premier Foods operates from 40 locations in the UK. Staff travel between the various sites, so Google Apps is being used to simplify access to information on the go and to support online collaboration.
The company is using Google Docs, Gmail, Calendar, Google Talk and Google Drive – a new addition to Google Apps which provides 5GB of storage per user.
Supported by Google’s authorised enterprise partner, Appsbroker, Premier Foods hopes Google Apps will help it halve its operational costs. The Google suite is also expected to relieve the burden on the IT department.
Mark Vickery, group IS and change director for Premier Foods, said: “Moving to a cloud-based system means we can now focus on how IT can strategically support our core area of expertise.”
