About Veolia

Veolia, based in Paris, France, designs and provides water, waste, and energy management solutions for sustainable development of communities and industries.

Veolia's patchwork of 250 different productivity tools was a barrier to collaboration for its worldwide workforce of 170,000, and a burden on IT. With Chromebooks, Chrome Enterprise Upgrade, and G Suite, the water and energy management company moved forward with its "secure, anytime, anywhere, any device" cloud project, helping employees collaborate with colleagues all over the world.

Chrome Enterprise Results:

  • Reduced time spent on IT infrastructure management
  • Eliminated the need for endpoint security software
  • Improved videoconferencing—employees now hold 80,000 Hangouts per month
  • Created a connected workforce that collaborates across borders

All 1200 of our corporate employees are using Chromebooks and 100% of our files migrated to Boogle Drive

"Our workforce has become truly connected. Our employees increasingly expect to work with their colleagues all over the world, not just the ones a few desks away."

Herve Dumas, Group Chief Technology Director, Veolia

Cloud-Native Tools for Cloud Workers

Veolia replaced its unwieldy suite of 250 productivity tools with G Suite for the entire workforce. Chromebooks, which are cloud-native and update automatically, help employees become true cloud workers and easily work remotely, while improving device security. Veolia adopted Hangouts Meet for video conferencing, creating a better culture of collaboration across borders.
