Umzuzu announced today that it has become a Premier Small and Midsized Business (SMB) Reseller of the Google Apps™ suite of communication and collaboration tools. This new designation from Google enables customers to more easily assess a reseller’s expertise advising on and deploying Google products. Umzuzu was recognized by Google as a Premier Reseller based on their expertise and success in helping customers deploy and use Google Apps.
“We’re honored to be recognized as a Premier Reseller,” said Tony Sheets of Umzuzu. "Google Apps is at the core of what we do. Our Google Apps Certified Deployment Specialists enjoy working in the SMB market. Through cloud tools, SMBs now have access to enterprise level technology for first time. Google Apps is often a business’ first step in shifting their IT focus toward the cloud and a 100% web environment.”
Google Apps brings simple, powerful communication and collaboration tools to organizations of any size – all hosted by Google to streamline setup, minimize maintenance, and reduce IT costs. With Gmail (including Google email security, powered by Postini), Google Calendar, and integrated IM, users can stay connected and work together with ease. And, using Google Docs and Google Sites, which include word processing, spreadsheet, presentation and website creation tools, they can share files and collaborate in real-time, keeping versions organized and available wherever and whenever users work.
As a part of the Apps Reseller program, Umuzu receives training, support and deployment tools from Google, as well as access to APIs for integrating Google Apps into their customers' business operations.
