Airtel partners with Google Cloud to offer G Suite apps to Indian SMBs

Bharti Airtel has announced a partnership with Google Cloud to offer G Suite with its integrated ICT portfolio, designed for small to medium business (SMBs). The move will help accelerate productivity and digitisation of SMBs across India that use Airtel as its telecommunications provider.

G Suite is a host of powerful cloud based applications like Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar and more, that are designed around real time collaboration among users in an organisation. When activated, G Suite provides multiple solutions for business requirements, including unlimited cloud storage, calendar planning, administrative control and security.

Airtel serves over 2,500 large businesses and over 5,00,000 SMBs and technology startups across India. Many SMBs have only begun the journey towards digitisation with the rate of adoption being low. With this partnership, SMBs using Airtel telecommunications will gain easy access to the G Suite Apps and help future-proof their business.

Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud said:

Indian companies are making a massive transformation to the cloud and we’re thrilled to partner with Airtel to support this transition. The combination of G Suite’s collaboration and productivity tools with Airtel’s digital business offerings will help accelerate digital innovations for thousands of Indian businesses.
