Hanoi (VNA)
— Google began to offer support to Vietnamese large- and medium-scale businesses in switching to its Google Apps for Work in late June, according to ICTnews website.

The information was released by the Global Integrated Management System Co Ltd (Gimasys), Google’s strategic partner in Google for Work in Vietnam.

To be eligible for the support, firms should have between 100 and 3,000 active email usernames, and have to commit to use Google Apps for Work for at least one more year after the end of the free run.

Under the support programme, the firms will be able to use Google Apps for Work free of charge until their contracts with current email service providers expire. They will also receive free technical training on installing and using Google Apps for Work.

According to Gimasys, this move is part of the group's global plan, which has been carried out since November last year, aiming to expand the application of cloud-based solutions in the world, particularly in developing countries, including Vietnam.

Statistics show that over five million enterprises across the world have used Google Apps for Work. The figure is expected to continue increasing, particularly in such strategic markets as India, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Thailand.-VNA
