Catholic Education Diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes | Spanning Backup for Google Workspace
Educators keep their focus on team collaboration and students’ achievements — not on data loss
Spanning Backup for Google Workspace Saves the Day When You Get into Trouble.
As educators who serve the communities within a Diocese that geographically spans 52% of New South Wales, Australia, the Catholic Education Office of the Diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes needed a technical solution that would help their team collaborate remotely. Moving to the cloud and Google Workspace was just the right solution for this private educational institution. But it wasn’t without its challenges.
“Moving to Google Workspace was a big deal for us. There was a steep learning curve among our staff and educators. To be honest, people did some weird stuff during the transition,” explains Matt Smith, IT Administrator. “Thankfully, Spanning was there to get us out of trouble.”
The Wilcannia-Forbes Catholic Education Office is part of a consortium with other Australian dioceses’ Catholic Education Offices. Their IT team decided, based on the research done by other members of the consortium, that Spanning Backup for Google Workspace would be the best solution for protecting their Google Workspace data from loss, whether due to “weird stuff” or common issues like human error, sync error, and even malware.
Google is an amazing product but you need a solution like Spanning Backup to get you out of trouble.
“Google is an amazing product but you need a solution like Spanning Backup to get you out of trouble,” Smith says. “As a system admin, backup is one of the most important aspects of your job …if your backup is not working, you need to get it resolved. The loss of data is hugely detrimental to any organization.”
By adopting Spanning Backup for Google Workspace, the educators and staff of the Catholic Education Office of the Diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes no longer have to worry about data loss for Drive, Team Drives, Calendars, Contacts and Sites, and can keep their focus on collaboration and their students’ achievements.
