As a standards-based organization, Colgate looks to keep its strategic IT partners for the long haul and maintain consistent systems and processes across regions. In 2015, the company decided it was time to modernize its approach to collaboration.
Colgate leverages many cross-functional, geographically dispersed teams to get work done. The company needed the flexibility that only cloud-based collaboration could provide.
“In the end, we chose Google for three main reasons. G Suite stood out because it’s truly an integrated toolset, with single sign-on and one directory. G Suite is built for cloud, with no on-premises legacy,” says Mitch. “We also felt that Google would continue to be the biggest innovator in cloud collaboration and a partner we could grow with. Finally, after careful analysis, we were most comfortable with the security of G Suite.”
Adds Tim Booher, Chief Information Security Officer at Colgate-Palmolive: “Since Google thinks comprehensively about cloud security, we benefit from eliminating the need to patch and prevent productivity applications from compromising our ecosystem. Also, the emphasis on low-level security and extensive reporting in Google Cloud gives us sufficient confidence to focus our security team on enabling our business to confidently leverage emerging technologies.”
