Google Workspace for NGO

“Jane, was engaged as a Google Workspace consultant for the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), duty station Copenhagen, Denmark.”

Jesper Steen Larsen, Head of Support Services, UNOPS

The challenge

UNOPS Google Cloud journey began when C level executives at the firm set out a strategy to enable the globally distributed team to work remotely and collaboratively from anywhere and on any device with the staff at UNOPS field offices worldwide. A lot of time was wasted downloading and emailing documents. After the document went back and forth several times, the team was confused about which version was most up to date and whether key information got lost in the email chain. They needed a new way to increase collaboration and ultimately the productivity within their team. To bring this strategy to life, the organization reimagined their work processes at the workplace and decided to invest in a cloud platform that helped them transform the way their teams were working.

The solution

Jane was engaged as a Google Cloud G Suite Consultant at the United Nations Office for Project Services in Denmark. She worked in collaboration with the G Suite Adoption Team in rolling out G Suite Enterprise in the organization to over 7000 users. UNOPS provisioned users to G Suite and migrated data from Microsoft Exchange to Google Workspace which included email, calendar and contact data. As a google workspace consultant Jane helped with the technical implementation of G Suite and system administration.

In addition to her technical role, she was also involved in the change management aspect, she prepared a communication and training plan to effectively train the workforce. She designed a Training website for internal use using Google Sites and produced G Suite training materials which include youtube videos, step by step tutorials and training presentations. She conducted google workspace training webcasts using Google Meets to train the staff at large.

The results

UNOPS moved to the Google Cloud in 2019, where they transitioned to Google Workspace for mail, calendar, voice/video conferencing and collaboration tools in less than 6 months. The transition helped them modernize their business processes and enabled the staff to work remotely and collaboratively from anywhere on any device.
