Capgemini, based in France, will officially become the first top tech consultant to begin recommending Google's office suite to corporate clients. The partnership was announced early today.
According to Forrester Research's Ray Wong, Capgemini's support will help Google gain street cred in the enterprise sector, where people are used to spending big dollars on cumbersome software.
Capgemini is a voice of influence for over 1 million personal computers in companies around the globe, according to CNN.
Google's biggest competitor in serving SaaS-style office tools to businesses is Zoho, which plans to release Zoho Business at a cost US$ 10 lower than the search giant's office suite.
