Beyond collaboration

8+ years using Google Cloud company-wide

Chromebooks and Google Meet now used for most video conferences.

More productivity on the go with Chromebooks’ long battery life.

Reduced technical maintenance work.

In 2008, Azavea began using Google Workspace products to help employees work closely together on software and analytics projects. Now, the growing geospatial web firm relies on Chromebooks to build a more collaborative environment in the office.

Google Cloud has significantly enhanced our company’s operations because Chromebooks and Google Meet hardware simply work and easily scale as the company has grown. Our teams are able to work effectively together, no matter where we are.
