Genghis Capital Leverages Google Cloud to Save on Cost

About Genghis Capital

INDUSTRY: FINANCIAL SERVICES
PROJECT LOCATION: KENYA

Genghis Capital is an innovative and customer-focused investment solutions provider licensed by the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) and the Retirement Benefits Authority (RBA). 

The challenge

Genghis Capital was using G Suite Basic with a subset of users being allocated additional Storage plans ranging from 50GB to 1TB. This was driving their costs high. Moreso, they needed a way to “retain and keep” staff data against the constant staff turnaround, internal needs, and data compliance with industry standards while also being able to securely have a shared resource for document collaboration.

Partner role in subject

Pawa IT Solutions provided the deployment and technical services support, enabling and supporting the Genghis Capital team to make and realize optimal value of mixing two Google Workspace plans that resulted in cost-saving. 

The solution

Working with Pawa IT Solution, Genghis Capital was able to choose and deploy a blend of two distinct Google Workspace plans; users on Google Workspace Business Standard with 2TB and some on Google Workspace Business Starter. Given the Covid-19 Pandemic, which imposed remote working settings, the partial domain licensing structure allowed the team to function efficiently from home.

The results

Genghis Capital boosted collaboration by leveraging the accessibility to information and files in Shared Drives, higher capacity in Google Meet’s, and the ability to record video calls. This lead to quick and informed decision-making and saved on cost by reducing the annual license cost by $5,310 per year.

“ Embracing innovation and technology is the only way to counter any drastic changes to any industry. This ensures minimum financial and/ or operational effects to the business and with the help of Pawa IT Solutions we were able to achieve this”
