Petra Christian University Offers Students Google Email and Collaboration Solutions
Surabaya, 23 July 2012
Petra Christian University announced today plans to deploy Google Apps Education Edition™ - Google's set of hosted and customizable communications solutions as part of the university's core IT service offerings. As a result students will have access to tools including email, shared calendars, instant messaging and word processing all at their @john.petra.ac.id address.

Quote from PCU Computer Center

"Google Apps will help us communicate with our students, faculty and administration more easily and efficiently than ever before, while relieving our IT department of the traditional costs associated with email and collaboration solutions" said Justinus." "We're glad to let Google do what it does best -- provide us with great technology, so we can do what we do best -- serve our students."

The service will go live on 8 August 2012. Students will continue using the service as mail address will switch to @alumni.petra.ac.id

A very special thanks to SADA Systems Asia for the help of communication planning, deploying, migration and change management. Petra Christian University will look forward to the Google Apps migration for the staff and faculty in the near future upon the successful migration of students’ email.
