TORONTO -- (Marketwire) -- 04/25/12 -- Agosto, Inc. (www.agosto.ca), one of the world's oldest and fastest-growing Google Apps and cloud services consulting firms, announced today the opening of its newest office in Toronto, Ontario, making the company the first Google Apps Premier Enterprise and SMB Reseller to establish a local presence in Canada. As a Premier Reseller of the Google Apps suite of communication and collaboration tools, Agosto helps companies successfully deploy and use Google Apps, which partly accounts for the company's more than 250 percent revenue growth in 2011. One of Agosto's recent complex projects involved the migration of more than 17,000 employees from Microsoft Exchange to Google Apps, in 41 locations across four continents, training users in eight languages -- an illustration of Agosto's capabilities and services to which Canadian businesses can look forward.
"Premier Resellers are an important part of the Google Enterprise strategy as we continue to increase our footprint and grow the Enterprise business in Canada," said Joe Koziol, head of Enterprise Sales - Google Enterprise, North Central U.S. and Canada. "Agosto has provided great contributions to the Google Enterprise business in the North Central U.S., and we look forward to similar contributions in Canada."
"Google is poised for explosive growth in Canada," said Aric Bandy, Agosto's CEO. "We're highly committed to Google Apps and to a long-term presence in Canada. We believe that Canada, especially the city of Toronto, has been underserved by Google Apps Solutions Providers." Bandy went on to stress that companies of all sizes in Canada can benefit from Agosto's experience in transitioning customers from legacy systems to Google Apps, and deploying secure solutions for improved collaboration and innovation, all of which provide significant cost savings.
The new office, located in Suite 2500 of Toronto's Eaton Town Centre at 1 Dundas St. West, is in the heart of the city, providing Agosto with a spectacular backdrop for doing business in Canada.
