Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) makes major splash for Goldfish Swim School Franchising

Goldfish’s rapid growth created inefficiencies that impacted their ability to streamline business processes. Our experience with data migration into Google Workspace made the transition seamless and provided a cost-effective solution.

Overview

Goldfish Swim School Franchising was created by parents, for parents, with this goal in mind—give kids the platform to build essential life skills that will help them make waves in life. Goldfish developed an inviting and safe place where kids overcome their fears, learn to swim, respect the water, and have lots of fun while doing it. 

Goldfish’s rapid growth created inefficiencies that impacted their ability to streamline business processes. For example, they had two different email systems for their corporate office and their swim schools, forcing their IT department to support different platforms and users into creative workarounds to enable more effective collaboration. 
 
Many Goldfish users were using Drive to create and share content, even though they were not able to officially use it with their Goldfish accounts. Schools and offices needed a solution that would allow for easy collaboration, low IT investment, and quick scaling as new schools were added. Finally, because of Goldfish’s franchise model, the solution needed to be secure and have a single Admin platform. 

What we did

  • Ensured successful outcomes to Goldfish employees with a robust change management methodology

Key Outcomes

The thought of resolving our disparate systems and collaboration challenges was daunting, particularly in the context of our rapid growth. With the implementation of G Suite, collaborating across over 95 schools and diverse geographies has been seamless and more effective than we could have imagined. Pythian’s expertise and training guided us through a smooth G Suite launch that saved us a lot of time and infrastructure costs.
