Royal Technologies: Bringing cloud applications to the shop floor
Advanced plastics manufacturing company Royal Technologies needed to replace aging Windows systems with tools that would enable cloud adoption from the boardroom to the shop floor. Previous systems burdened the IT department with data storage management, software updates and security across devices and platforms. With ChromeOS, Royal Technologies has broadened frontline manufacturing workers’ access to legacy applications while supporting Google Workspace adoption.

ChromeOS and Chrome devices free Royal Technologies from dependence on Windows. Workers can access legacy applications through Cameyo’s cloud-based platform with just a click in the browser. Cameyo also integrates well with Google Workspace since files created in apps through Cameyo are all saved to Drive. Windows apps are hosted by Cameyo, eliminating the need to manage virtual desktops.
