BetterCloud Named Google Apps Premier Technology Partner by Google

Now Managing 20 Million Users and Over 1 Billion Documents, the Management and Security Software Provider Becomes One of the First Premier Technology Partners Named to Elite Group

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2014) - Today, Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) named BetterCloud, the leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud management and security software, an inaugural Premier Technology Partner. The Premier Technology Partner program enables third-party software developers like BetterCloud to more deeply integrate their products with the Google Apps platform, in turn providing a better experience for mutual customers around the world.

Since launching FlashPanel, the company's flagship software suite, two years ago, BetterCloud has seen more than 40,000 organizations with 20 million users install the product. It has remained the number 1 Admin Tool since its launch in July 2012. And today, FlashPanel manages more than 1 billion documents, giving Google Apps customers like Design Within Reach and Stumptown Coffee added security and peace of mind. 

"We're proud to be an inaugural member of Google's Premier Technology Partner program," said David Politis, Founder and CEO of BetterCloud. "We're bolstered by Google's continued support of third-party developers and the Google Apps ecosystem as a whole and look forward to further growing our relationship with the Google Enterprise team."

Politis, who is also the Chairman of the Cloud Alliance for Google Apps, the only independent consortium of Google Apps software vendors, has continually emphasized the value of the Google Apps ecosystem and the benefits its many solutions provide to organizations running their businesses on the Apps platform.

To achieve Premier Technology Partner status, BetterCloud displayed astute technical competency by building deep integrations with multiple Google APIs and established itself as a category leader and top performer in the Google Apps Marketplace.
