End-User Communications & Planning

End user communication and planning is a key factor in the success of your migration to Google Apps. By advertising the transition in plenty of time, your users will become used to the idea of the move. By showing users that their work will not be disrupted by the move, and their efficiency could be improved, a positive opinion of the transition will be formed.

Communications can take the form of email messages to your users, Intranet announcements, posters and guides delivered to the users' desks covering topics such as how to get started and frequently asked questions.

Example communications that Cloud Skills will create to compliment your migration:
  • Email communication introducing Google Apps E-mail & Calendar and outlining the timeline for the transition
  • Email communication welcoming the user to Google Apps E-Mail & Calendar
  • Poster announcing the transition to Google Apps Email & Calendar
  • Getting Started Guide delivered to user desks on the morning of the migration
  • FAQ list to be published on the Intranet, sent via email or delivered to user desks
  • Postcard of quick Google Apps Email tips delivered to user desks
  • An Introduction to the Cloud Skills Academy leaflet delivered to user desks
All communications can be customised to include your own best practices and specific migration messages. Communications can also be branded to include your company logo, colours, etc.
