More on Taylor Woodrow

They seem to have been in the press a lot this week.  Well I say a lot, I have seen 3 seperate articles, Computing, Computerweekly and this.  They seem to be “bleeding” edge by moving email and application sharing out to the “Cloud”

I wonder what the users think of it?

Taylor Woodrow has moved its 1,800 staff onto Google Apps for email and other services, estimating it will save £1m per year in the process.

The construction division of Taylor Wimpey has embraced software as a service by adopting Google Apps Premier Edition to improve mobility and flexibility for its workers.

Staff are now using Google Mail along with the Docs, Calendar and Sites services, all of which is hosted by Google, removing the need to install or maintain the technology on site.

The company predicts it could save around £1m in terms of up front costs with each of the 1,800 licences costing just £25 per year for 25GB of storage. These costs are also predictable due to Google not charging extra as new features are added.

Previously, the company was using HP’s Open Mail which offered little flexibility especially for clients and contractors who often use other people’s machines.
