Google Acquires Synergyse, A Site That Provides Google Apps Training


Google, an Alphabet’s company has just acquired Synergyse, a company that provides online Google Apps training.

According to statement released by Synergyse, the company announced on its website that the company is ‘joining Google’.

According to Varun, Majid & Alex, founders of the company said in a statement released on the company’s website that, it has provided training to over 4 million people on how to use Google Apps for both business and personal purposes. It hopes to use the acquisition to “accelerate our mission because we will be working even closer with the teams that build Google Apps. Advancing our mission at a faster speed is very exciting for the Synergyse team and our customers will directly see the benefits as we move forward.”

As a hint that the company might operate independently, the statement said “We would not be here without your support. We will continue to focus on our mission to provide interactive training and change management solutions. Your ongoing support and feedback has guided us to make our product what it is today.”

In a statement released by Peter Scocimara, Senior Director, Google Apps Operations, the company said “Synergyse built a virtual coach inside of the Google Apps interface, built on Google Cloud Platform. With voice and text interactive modules that are searchable by topic within our apps, Synergyse will help your users get up to speed quickly — including when new features are rolled out. The trainings are always up to date, thanks to the power of the cloud. Organizations that use Synergyse see on average 35 percent higher adoption across Apps products, meaning those organizations are more likely to be productive, collaborative and embrace digital transformation.”

“Given the enthusiasm that exists for Synergyse already, we want to extend this service to all of our customers. That is why we’re happy to announce Synergyse will be joining Google, and we intend to make the product available as an integral part of the Google Apps offering later this year. In the meantime, existing customers will continue to have access, and new customers will be able to download the Chrome extension for free while the integration is underway.”

Neither Google nor Synergyse disclosed how much the company was acquired. We hope to see the amount in its Q2 2016 result/disclosure.
