Posted by iwgcr

Valeo is an independent industrial Group fully focused on the design, production and sale of components, integrated systems and modules for cars and trucks. On their website we can learn that Valeo announced that the Group’s 30,000 Internet-connected employees now have access to a new communication and collaborative working platform based on Google Apps.

“The cost savings and innovation made possible by cloud computing help businesses better respond to a global and mobile workforce – especially in today’s difficult economic environment,” said Dave Girouard, President, Google Enterprise. “We’re thrilled Valeo has selected Google.”

Lots of websites talk about “Valeo”and “Google” as TechCrunch, Cnet. According to BusinessWeek: ” The search giant aims to compete in business software with Google Apps. But some clients fret over storing data on its servers—and its rivals are big”.

Valeo chose Google App because, as André Gold (Valeo’s Technical Senior Vice-President) says, the cost of Google Apps deployment is the half of Microsoft.
