ATLANTA, Georgia — February 14, 2012 — Cloud Sherpas, recently named the Google Enterprise 2011 Partner of the Year, announced today that it has become a Premier Enterprise and SMB Reseller of Google Apps in North America and Asia-Pacific. The designation from Google enables businesses to more easily assess a reseller’s expertise in deploying Google Apps. Cloud Sherpas, which had been an Authorized reseller, earned its Premier status based on their success helping hundreds of global customers implement Google Apps.
Cloud Sherpas has migrated over one million workers to Google Apps since 2008. The cloud services firm has a large number of Google Apps Certified Deployment Specialists, which allows the company to provide exceptional coverage and unmatched expertise to over 1,300 customers worldwide.
“The Google Apps Reseller program has been a critical component of our business,” said Douglas Shepard, CEO for Cloud Sherpas. “We’re pleased to be recognized as a Premier reseller, and we look forward to continuing our work helping enterprise and SMB clients in North America and Asia take full advantage of Google Apps and related Google products.”
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, from Google Docs and Google Sites, users can share files and collaborate in real-time, keeping versions organized and available wherever and whenever users work.
The Google Apps Reseller program includes companies globally that sell, service and customize Google Apps for Business for their customers.
