Customers are looking for a more secure and stable email solution that will reduce maintenance and cost.


With the recommendation and support of Shivaami Cloud Services Pvt.Ltd, Navnit Group made the switch to Google Workspace in Sept 2021.

Shivaami guided Navnit Group through a comprehensive migration process. Shivaami project management team conducted the planning meetings, defined success criteria, selected the starting set of Google Workspace products and features, and managed issues as they arise.

The deployment services consisted of

  • Provisioning Google Workspace Account.
  • Migrate Email Data with DMS for all users.
  • Mail Routing.
  • Device Management.
  • Document Collaboration using Google Docs and Drive.
  • File storage and File sharing 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 to G Workspace were implemented, the user accounts were provisioned and the user's data was migrated into Google Workspace using GWMME post go live.


Within 27 days, Navnit Group had successfully completed the data migration process for all of its users in the Google Workspace platform, and based on the feedback the stakeholders/employees were very satisfied. Having familiar emails, contacts, calendars, and Drive appointments gave the users the best possible experience of Google Workspace.

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

Enabling device management policy allowed the internal IT team to control Gmail set up accounts.

The IT team now has more time to focus on business continuity and other compliance. Now, they believe any problems can be resolved efficiently.

The challenges and frustration caused by their old system were updated by the ease of use and reliability of Google’s cloud-based communication and collaboration solutions.
