Uganda Cancer Institute Delivers Medical Cloud Collaboration with Google Workspace

Pawa IT Solutions was responsible for the rapid deployment and migration of over 400 Mailbox users from an OnPremise Exchange to G Suite – Now Google Workspace. In addition, the partner provided training and change management against support to all the staff.

The challenge

Running an on-premise email infrastructure had been a major challenge for UCI for a while now. Reliability and availability were unheard of and staff were resorting to using their consumer and personal emails for official communication. The weekly man-hours that were being poured to support and maintain the infrastructure were daunting for the thinly spread ICT Team that supports over 400 staff

The solution

The business email was the first critical item that needed immediate action and Gmail for Businessimmediately solved that problem. All UCI data was migrated from legacy system. Next was the need to collaborate with spread-out teams and when Covid19 challenges started, Google Meet and Google Drive became really critical and onboarding the UCI staff was quickly implemented by the partner.

The results

I have never had peace of mind, as I have after we implemented G Suite. From all familiar Gmail to hangouts chats and real-time collaboration and ease of file sharing in Google Drive, our employees tell me how happy they are with G Suite. It makes me happy.
