Georgetown University connects the community on campus and beyond

Challenge

Georgetown’s IT was fragmented and in need of upgrades. Students, faculty, and staff often found themselves stifled by technology, rather than helped by it. They used multiple (and outdated) tools for calendars, email, and file storage, hindering efforts to schedule meetings, share information, and work together.

"We used to spend all of our resources making sure things were running, and we didn’t have time to work on providing better features. Now things just run!"

Marty Johnson, director of enterprise services, identity and collaboration

Solution

With Google Apps for Education, the university was able to retire their outdated systems, saving money and IT resources. Georgetown now provides an easy, unified suite of email, storage, calendar, file sharing, and collaboration tools. Plus, lifelong Google accounts are given to all alumni, allowing them to stay connected to the community.
