Going to the cloud just got easier for Northern California businesses

Fortis, a leading California-based managed services and VoIP provider for small business, has been awarded Google Cloud Partner certification.

The Google Cloud Partner Program is designed to provide Google Cloud customers with qualified partners that have demonstrated technical proficiency and proven success in specialized solution and service areas. To achieve the Google Cloud Partner status, Fortis has shown its ability to help customers migrate to and successfully deploy the G Suite family of solutions.

G Suite encompasses business email, video conferencing, online storage and file sharing. It includes the popular Gmail and Google Docs. Google’s office suite has been gaining widespread adoption among small and mid-sized businesses. Google designed and developed G Suite with security and reliability in mind. G Suite saves companies the frustration of managing traditional IT solutions by themselves.

According to David Little, VP at Fortis, “We’ve migrated hundreds of users from legacy systems to leading cloud productivity suites and collaboration tools. Our mission is to help companies digitally transform themselves without risk or hassle.”

G Suite is a set of collaborative applications for business. Two or more employees can work on the same document, spreadsheet or presentation at the same time. Hangouts Meet is included with G Suite at no extra charge. Meet allows for video conferencing and screen sharing among attendees across different desktop and mobile devices.

G Suite is used by millions of businesses from small companies to the Fortune 500. “Our customers love this user-friendly, cost-effective set of applications. G Suite allows their staff to work together to build and do business from anywhere, on any device,” says Little.

Fortis provides consultative technology services to small businesses throughout Northern California. In addition to G Suite services, the company’s services include:
– IT Help Desk, Complete Server/Workstation and Network Management Support from experienced staff who use sophisticated management systems to prevent most IT problems from ever happening
