CloudFuze Offers Smooth Slack to Google Chat Shifts


Businesses today seek flexibility in choosing their communication platforms and office software, recognizing the importance of staying adaptable in a dynamic digital landscape. This flexibility allows them to pivot from tools like Slack to Google Chat, driven by factors like cost-effectiveness, functionality and integration capabilities.

However, a critical challenge arises when making these transitions: preserving the invaluable historical context and data that reside within their previous communication and office software. These data repositories include vital chat logs, documents, project discussions and other information crucial for legal compliance, knowledge sharing and informed decision-making.

Navigating this transition posed a significant hurdle in the past. There often lacked a clear migration path from one platform to another, leading to the potential for data loss, workflow disruptions, and productivity setbacks. Addressing this concern is vital, especially as businesses show a growing interest in Google Workspace.

Therefore, CloudFuze entered a partnership with Google Workspace, which provides customers with the addition of a Google Chat migration path along with CloudFuze's Gmail and Google Drive migrations and allows CloudFuze's customers a comprehensive solution for migrations across Google Workspace.

CloudFuze assists a wide range of clients, including global corporations, SMBs and MSPs. The primary function of CloudFuze is to facilitate smooth transitions between different cloud office systems and traditional on-site storage systems. This service supports customers on their digital transformation journey, helping them reduce expenses and improve overall business operations.

CloudFuze also plays a role in aiding global businesses in planning and executing comprehensive migrations, encompassing user accounts, files, emails, links, tenants, messages, whiteboards, as well as platforms like Box Notes and Dropbox Paper.

Throughout the migration process, CloudFuze stands out by providing support and ensuring a high level of security. They guide businesses through managed migration services and offer round-the-clock, enterprise-grade support to address any concerns or issues that may arise.

With the full support of the CloudFuze technical team throughout the migration, Google Workspace customers grow in confidence that they have the support and experience available to ensure a smooth migration process. This includes pre-migration reporting and planning, migration consulting, and post-migration data validation and coordinated cloud cutover.

“With Google Workspace, we are confident knowing we could leverage our Google Workspace migration expertise – as well as 40-plus other Cloud migration solutions – and deliver a Slack to Google Chat migration path that exceeded Google Workspace's customers' needs," said Ravi Poli, CEO of CloudFuze.

Here’s a use case of how the migration works.

Vendasta, a marketplace software company serving 60,000 partners, needed to replicate 100% of channels, data, files and content in Slack to Google Chat was business critical. The company, therefore, utilized CloudFuze for a Slack to Google Chat migration to standardize their communication platform as Google Workspace and reduce costs. 

CloudFuze provided the premier support for a seamless migration from Slack to Google Chat for Vendasta including public and private channel migration, files, emojis, mentions, threads/replies and more to meet their business-critical needs.

"There is important information buried in our Slack channels, it was important to have it carry over without losing information. CloudFuze made this an easy thing to do," said Jason Coutu, IT Czar, Vendasta.
