Jellyfish are a global boutique agency located in offices in the UK, Europe, US and South Africa. Jellyfish pride themselves on being accountable, autonomous, flexible and personal.
In 2017, Jellyfish approached Netpremacy as they wanted to achieve a more flexible and collaborative way of working. Over the course of several months, Netpremacy facilitated the transition to Google Workspace for all Jellyfish offices around the globe.
The project was kicked off with teams from Jellyfish and Netpremacy to outline the approach for the project. Initially, the Core IT staff at Jellyfish were the first team to go live.
The Google Workspace Ninjas were next. Google Workspace Ninjas were a select group of Google enthusiasts, tech-savvy individuals who would help support other end users through the transition. Jellyfish created a series of fantastic illustrations to accompany their Ninja theme, and brought fun and creativity to their go live!
For the final phase of the project, to make all other users live, Jellyfish and Netpremacy took a ‘big bang’ approach. This meant everyone went live on the same day. Google Workspace branded bottles, T-Shirts and stickers were handed out, along with bunting, balloons, and cake to decorate the offices during this time. This made Go Live week a more engaging and exciting event for everyone in the business.
In addition to this, Netpremacy built a social intranet for Jellyfish to display content and create a central place for internal communications. This intranet was accessible for all staff members which integrates with Google Workspace where people’s emails, calendars, and files can be displayed for a more personalised feel. The intranet allowed for easier access to information, news, and files and formed an online social community for Jellyfish. This was also launched at the same time as users went live on Google making for a whole new exciting user experience!
“Jellyfish decided to Go Google in 2017 to further enable us to work in a more collaborative and secure environment. Netpremacy were incredibly helpful throughout the project, and ensured that our transition to Google was a smooth one”
