Food retailer Ahold has deployed Google Apps Premier across its 55,000-strong international workforce.
The retailer has supermarkets in Europe and the US, and is using Google
Apps to provide a single, global web-based communication and collaboration solution to replace Ahold’s existing email domains and systems.
The retailer said that the global deployment of Google Apps will provide consolidation and improved productivity through the use of efficient email and instant messenger tools.
In addition, it will provide training support via new video-based communication tools, such as video instant messaging, and improve international communication with features such as automatic Message Translate.
