Using an award-winning creative design methodology, Rudolf Zimmermann Bamberg (RZB) manufactures and sells more than 20,000 lighting products and develops new smart lighting technologies. Most of RZB’s 800 employees are based in Germany, but the company also has multilingual staff in places such as Kuala Lumpur, Dubai and South Africa.
As a family-owned, technology-driven company, RZB provides 360° Light Competence, i.e. new, intelligent lighting products made in Germany, all around the world. The company aims to maintain a lean organizational structure, while continuing to scale internationally. To support its growth strategy by improving both internal collaboration and client communication, RZB opted for Google Cloud’s collaboration solution Google Workspace in 2019.
Combining tools such as Google Meet, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Chat and Google Sites, Google Workspace enables the RZB staff to communicate effortlessly with colleagues in any region and on any device. It’s quick and easy to schedule and conduct meetings with both colleagues and customers across time zones.
Google Cloud Premier Partner Wabion not only ensured a smooth migration to Google Workspace, but also provided change management support throughout the project that included the move from three different mailbox systems to Google Workspace’s flagship product Gmail. Refining and specifying Google’s best practices for the particular needs of every customer, Wabion has successfully guided companies such as TX Group, Kaeser Kompressoren and Koenig & Bauer in their migration to Google Workspace.
Wabion’s tailor-made method for Google Workspace migration: The right mix of project management competence, technical expertise and change management know-how is crucial for a successful Google Workspace migration. With this set of skills, Wabion guides its customers to the next levels in their digital transformation. In doing so, Wabion brings in its comprehensive Google Cloud Platform (GCP) expertise for the seamless integration of Google Workspace with other GCP offers such as Firebase and BigQuery.
Introduced to RZB by Wabion, the digital product engineering consultancy Nagarro helped RZB to integrate Google Workspace with the company’s ERP system, a SAP software used for managing business processes across the organization. The setup of a global virtual telephone system to further improve internal and external communication is the next stage of RZB’s journey with Google Cloud.
