Salem was the first municipality in Sweden to implement G Suite for Business. In November 2010 Avalon Solutions helped them move employees and students from a Microsoft-based environment. Avalon Solutions has continued to work closely with Salem as a trusted adviser for cloud strategy and change management.

In 2010 Salem was faced with the choice of upgrading their existing solution, which would have been very costly, or move to a cloud based solution. After extensive evaluation of available solutions on the market, Salem municipality chose Google Apps. This was a step well aligned with their strategic decision to exchange existing on premise applications and services with innovative, cost efficient cloud based services by 2015.

 

“We are a modern municipality. Cloud computing and G Suite is an obvious choice. G Suite platform not only gives us a reliable and cost effective solution for standard functionality such as email and calendar, but also web-based tools that allows us to streamline and modernize the way we work”
Tony Söderlund, IT manager at Salem
