Lush moves to G Suite and improves team collaboration

Lush needed to find an alternative email service for the company, as their Scalix system kept crashing. G Suite met their three main criteria. First, it is cloud-based to scale easily as the company grows. Second, it enables collaboration within the company. Thirdly, it will support a future BYOD policy which will allow employees to work on any device, from anywhere, at any time.

About Lush

Founded in 1994, handmade cosmetics company Lush is headquartered in Poole, England, with offices around the world. The company has ten manufacturing sites and several head office locations in Poole and London.

 

It is a big decision. Once you’ve made it, I think it’s critical to do your homework and find a reliable and experienced provider. Ancoris played a huge part in our positive experience. As our partner, they were a constant resource, flexible in meeting our requirements and timescales. As a result of Ancoris experience and expertise in helping businesses transition to the cloud, the whole process has been pretty painless.
