"Sole365 is a brand, as well as a business project, owned by AP commerciale s.r.l., a family business that has become a major player in the Campania distribution scene over the years.
The company is linked by a strong partnership with the Megamark Group, the leading distribution company in southern Italy, and the Selex Group.
The first supermarket opened in 2013, but the network continues to grow so much that it has reached 58 outlets in Campania, of which 43 are direct and 15 are franchisees.
Our priority was to simplify the dialogue between the stores and our offices-we have more than 2,000 employees, and we were looking for a standard that was easy to use, especially for those who are not part of the IT department.
We also needed to make data transit much more secure and streamline email management, file sharing, and streamline our data center. Before using Google Workspace, we had continuous problems with internal NAS and depleted disk space. It was necessary to simplify the management of file servers, internal network and data sharing outside the main office."
Innovation is mandatory for a company that wants to scale, regardless of the market in which it operates. The Cloud is a very important part of a company's computerization process, especially when the core business is not IT centric. Simplifying and automating digitization processes today is vital.
Sole365 has chosen a GDPR-compliant platform such as Google Workspace that allows both accounts and devices to be managed in a single Console with maximum control.
Google Workspace is a solution that encourages collaboration, efficiency and saves considerable time by adopting a standard that is independent of the platforms or devices the user uses. The world, not just IT, is changing at an impressive rate and it is unthinkable for a business not to evolve over time."
"With power2Cloud 's assistance, we were able to migrate most of the network NAS platform to the Drive and had no down or freeze. In just 3 weeks we migrated about 200 accounts, organizing training before the transition to Google Workspace.
With the help of Google Workspace, we have solved many problems and eliminated unnecessary slowdowns, greatly increasing the security of information on our systems and finally adopting a single standard.
Initially, many, while sensing the potential of the tools, had not readily accepted the replacement of the old methods. Instead, after only 2 weeks , they revolutionized their way of working and even became proactive about the solutions we could implement.
Our colleagues began to use Google Forms to gather information in real time that they previously had to ask for by email and phone calls, saving useful time. The HACCP colleague created her own mini Sites to add to the company intranet, with the guide and all the procedures she had already implemented.
Hangouts , on the other hand, has revolutionized our meetings and calls with third parties: we have video conferences with our partners Megamark and Selex, with whom we are able to engage in a totally different way, plus area heads contact us with Hangouts, via mobile devices, for assistance or simply to be aligned with the new procedures.
With Drive, we have made it as easy as possible to manage file sharing inside and outside the offices. Sales uses it to automate the morning order request. Stores have adopted it quickly. Today they are able to create Shared Worksheets, Forms or other on their own without the support of the IT department.
Finally, the relationship with the marketing staff working with us consultants and internal resources has been extremely simplified, especially with regard to customer care, which as we know must be managed in real time."

The company is linked by a strong partnership with the Megamark Group, the leading distribution company in southern Italy, which in turn is linked to the Selex Group.
The first Sole 365-branded supermarket opened in 2013. Today the network consists of about 50 stores scattered throughout Campania, to which great attention is paid, especially in the care of design.
The goal is to create environments that are aware of the centrality that the shopping experience takes, in which the customer feels comfortable.

We combine the most innovative solutions with a highly qualified team to support each organization in the migration deployment and training phases.
Productivity and timing
The IT department saves at least 2 man days per week of activity, while end users over 1 man day per week. No one is bottlenecked on anything anymore, either on devices or platforms.
Costs were greatly reduced in terms of licensing, both in terms of simplifying work and management, and, since we chose the Business version, also in terms of future purchases for disk space.
Speed of adoption
The migration to Google Workspace took only 3 weeks involving about 200 users.
Increase on many internal productivity parameters.
