Dinshaw's moved to

Google Workspace Basic Plan

Dinshaw's was established by Dinshaw and Erachshaw Rana in the year 1932. It began as a dairy operation in Gittikhadan, Nagpur. " Dinshaw's Ice-cream" was born as a result of their fascination with expanding the market. By the mid-1950s, they had agreed to expand ice cream production into the summer months, and hand-churners were replaced by vertical freezers.

Dinshaw's, which has locations all over India, was the vision of two enterprising brothers, - Dinshaw & Erachshaw Rana. Their relentless focus on consistency and innovation of new flavours resulted in ice cream that people loved.

What they wanted to do

  • In a single panel, client wanted to improve access & security control to emails and data storage for their employees.
  • Collect Advance Drive Audit Reports.
  • Company Management intended to do more with the company's data security compliance policy.
  • Minimum server downtime.

What they did

    Switched to Google Workspace (formerly known as G Suite) Basic Plan for better communication and collaboration across locations.

What they achieved

  • Increased User security, Admin control, and Device management.
  • Use of Google workspace features has resulted in increased cost savings.
  • Reduces email client support by 80% & system dependency.
  • 99.9% Google uptime SLA.


  • Industry: Ice Cream Distributor
  • Old Email Service: Rediff
  • Number of Employees: 460


Prior to migration, the client was using Rediff email service. An IT professional will have a difficult time dealing with the problem caused by the local host email service. Rediff does not have MDM, Drive, or other compliance settings.


With the recommendation and support of Shivaami Cloud Services Pvt.Ltd, Dinshaw's made the switch to Google Workspace Basic Plan on January 07, 2021.

Shivaami guided Dinshaw's through a comprehensive migration process. The Shivaami project management team organized planning meetings, established success criteria, chose the initial set of Google Workspace (G suite) products and features, and handled any problems that occurred.

The deployment services consisted of

  • Provisioning to Google Workspace Account.
  • Migrated Email through DMS.
  • Device Management.
  • Document Collaboration using Google Docs and Drive.
  • Google Workspace Security checklist discussed.
  • File storage and File share using Google Drive.
  • Change Management and online training.

The project was kicked off. Changes to the DNS settings were made, network access to Google Workspace was tested, the desired settings were implemented, the user accounts were provisioned and the users data was migrated into Google Workspace using various methods.


Dinshaw successfully completed the data migration process for all of its users in the Google Workspace (G suite) platform within 15-20 days, and the stakeholders/employees were very happy, based on the feedback provided. Users got the most out of Workspace by using familiar emails, contacts, calendars, and Drive appointments.

With Google Workspace (G suite), spam is now kept to a minimum with the appropriate spam filters.

Enabling device management policy, Drive and the Compliance settings allowed the internal IT team to control Gmail set up accounts.

The IT team will now devote more time to business continuity and other regulatory compliance. They believe that every issue can now be resolved efficiently.

The ease-of-use and stability of Google's cloud-based communication and collaboration tools replaced the problems and frustrations created by their old system.
