PwC and Google have launched a joint business relationship to bring new and innovative services to companies around the world.
PwC has also begun to introduce Google for Work products to its own operations. PwC is transitioning 40,000 people in the United States and 5,000 people in Australia and New Zealand to Google Apps, transforming how those firms do business.
“PwC is teaming with Google to offer our joint knowledge and capabilities to clients - giving them one place to go, maximising experience and assets from both organisations.,” says Paul Nickels, PwC New Zealand’s National Consulting Leader.
Our collaboration is about helping clients to embrace their journey to the cloud, and transform their organisations to thrive and maintain relevance in a rapidly changing world.
