Agosto Named 2013 Global Partner of the Year for Google Cloud Platform

Google Enterprise Partner Recognized for Ability to Deliver Innovative Products That Economize Time, Development and Infrastructure Costs for the Enterprise

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 6, 2014) - Agosto Inc., one of the world's most experienced Google Enterprise Partners and cloud product development firms, has been named Google Enterprise Global Partner of the Year for Cloud Platform. The award was presented at Google's annual Global Partner Summit in San Francisco. Agosto is a Google Apps Premier and Google Cloud Platform Premier partner.

Representatives from Google's global Enterprise Partner community are gathering this week as Google shares its latest enterprise business updates and presents awards for outstanding regional and global achievement. The global Cloud Platform award recognizes Agosto's innovative product development work that uses many components of Google's Cloud Platform. In particular, the award acknowledges Agosto's work over the past year to create new, efficient and powerful products.

"We're thrilled to receive this award from Google Enterprise in recognition of our exceptional product development work," said Agosto President Aric Bandy. "This award not only recognizes Agosto's strengths in using Google's innovative tools, but also our team's ability to deliver products the market is looking for, which economize our clients' time, development and infrastructure costs."

The award also acknowledges Agosto for their expertise and dedication to meeting customers' business and technology needs with Google Cloud Platform. An example of Agosto's work on Google Cloud Platform is that for client Image Sensing Systems, Inc. (ISS). Agosto was instrumental in the development of CitySync Safety -- an innovative cloud-based data analytics application that combines ISS and other above-ground detection technology with big data collection and analysis -- to give law enforcement, security, parking and traffic management professionals more precise and accurate information, streamlining communications and improving safety.

"We are proud to provide this recognition to the team at Agosto who have consistently demonstrated sales, deployment and support excellence to our customers throughout 2013," said Mark Hodgson, Head of Global Partner Programs at Google.

Agosto leverages its deep Google Enterprise product experience across the entire suite of products -- including Google Apps, Search, Chrome and Cloud Platform -- to envision the solutions its clients are seeking. Agosto's highly-skilled development team then builds products using Google Cloud Platform, offering virtually infinite scaling capabilities, rich data analytics and geographic tools.

Agosto's Bandy went on to say, "Products developed on Google's Cloud Platform are highly scalable, so clients no longer need to think about hosting large servers or paying for unnecessary network buildout."

Google's three-day Global Partner Summit celebrates the contributions of partners across the globe, bringing together more than 700 partners to collaborate on business plans, share best practices and engage with Google's own product experts.
