Curaçao’s leading innovative digital projects agency is now an official Google Cloud partner, which will establish a support system for current Google customers and prospective customers on the island. Managing Director Boudino de Jong had the following statement: “We’ve been working hard for over five years to become an official Google partner. We are firm proponents of Google’s solutions for businesses and want to enable local businesses to embrace these technologies for the enhancement of their overall performance”.
So what does this new partnership entail exactly? It means Profound Projects is licensed to distribute and resell Google products to businesses here on the island, along with other islands in the Caribbean.
Those products include Google services that help companies connect internally such as Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Hangout (Video Conference). Additionally, they include services which facilitate access and storage such as Google Drive and Google Cloud. All of these services are offered under the name G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Business).
This also includes the services which enable co-creation of projects such as Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, Slides, Sites and Jamboard. And in closing those services which allow central management of users (employees) and data are also among those included in the package.
Managing Director Gino Jacobs places the following emphasis: “A lot of companies still stress the importance of local servers for security purposes, but in reality ‘The Cloud’ is the future. Conglomerates such as Google invest enormous amounts of resources into offering state-of-the-art security, because after all, their reputation is at stake. It’s time for companies to embrace the switch to Cloud, and we are here to give a helping hand in that regard.”
Profound Projects is also specialized in setting up Google Analytics for company websites, and running Google Adwords campaigns, effectively giving local companies insights into their customer behavior and placing local websites on the first page of Google Search Results.
This latest development puts Profound Projects on the leading edge of tech innovation in Curaçao and places it at the precipice of even bolder and more auspicious leaps in the field of groundbreaking entrepreneurship on the island.
