03/24/2011

ValleyApps, a Google Apps provider based in Harrisonburg, Virginia, wants to help nonprofits in their efforts to change the world. Already a Google Apps certified partner, ValleyApps was recently accepted as a featured provider of Google Apps for nonprofits.

Online PR News – 24-March-2011 – – ValleyApps, a Google Apps provider in Harrisonburg, VA, is now one of only ten Google certified partners in North America that provides cloud computing services and support geared specifically to non-profits. ValleyApps was accepted as part of the Google nonprofits marketplace, launched on March 16th 2010, with the goal of providing exclusive offers to nonprofits including Google Apps licenses at a reduced cost, Google Earth Outreach, YouTube for nonprofits and Google Grants to receive up to $10,000 a month in advertising on Google AdWords.

ValleyApps is listed in the Nonprofits Marketplace, which connects approved nonprofits with a network of partners specializing in a variety of Google products. ValleyApps was carefully vetted by Google and met rigorous qualification standards. ValleyApps is well suited to offer nonprofits migration support and services at competitive rates, but more importantly, they understand the complexity of working with nonprofits, which often have disparate systems and programs that need streamlining prior to migration.

Nonprofits provide valuable services to their surrounding community and beyond. Being able to provide them with migration support allows these nonprofits a lower cost and more efficient alternative for their e-mail and document sharing needs.

ValleyApps provides consulting, transition support, migration, change management and training to nonprofits interested in implementing Google Apps. Google’s platform of Internet offerings are centered around Gmail for business and include applications like Calendar, Docs and Sites. For organizations contemplating a switch to Google, ValleyApps can help businesses understand the advantages of “Going Google”, which include reduced IT related costs over traditional email platforms. ValleyApps prides itself on providing a timely and streamlined transition to the cloud.

Mike Vanderpool, CEO of ValleyApps, recognizes that nonprofits, like businesses, are looking to decrease their operating costs and streamline office operations to more efficiently meet the mission of their organization. ValleyApps recently helped the American Center for Physics, a nonprofit in College Park, Maryland, set up and migrate their old data from GroupWise and trained them on the use of Google Apps. Their team is thrilled with the outcome and their affiliated organizations plan to transition from GroupWise to Google as well.

CEO Mike Vanderpool has been a fan of Google for many years and jumped at the opportunity to become a Google certified partner in 2009. He is proud to now be a featured provider for nonprofits. Providing competitive rates and expertise for nonprofits is all part of his company’s mission, saying, “Nonprofits provide valuable services to their surrounding community and beyond. Being able to provide them with migration support allows these nonprofits a lower cost and more efficient alternative for their e-mail and document sharing needs.”
