Rackspace Technology, a leading end-to-end multicloud technology solutions company, today announced their 2020 Google Cloud Breakthrough North America Partner of the Year award was due to successful migrations of IT environments to Google Cloud for customers like, GoHenry, Mrs. T’s and Eagle Eye.
Rackspace Technology supported GoHenry with its global growth plans by migrating its IT environment to Google Cloud, delivering enhanced security and scalability for the next-generation money app. Since migrating 99% of its services to Google Cloud, GoHenry, the prepaid Visa debit card and app designed exclusively for 6-18-year-olds, doubled its customer base by reaching one million customers. It also sharply increased its revenue year-over-year as families increasingly look to cashless solutions to help children become skilled in money management.
As a premier partner for Google Cloud with over 370+ technical certifications, Rackspace Technology supported GoHenry throughout the entire migration process. The Google Cloud migration provides GoHenry with the confidence to grow its business at scale and speed, knowing its infrastructure will support the company’s – and its customers’ – changing needs.
“16-18-year-olds today are digital natives. According to our Youth Economy Report, they are choosing technology over cash and this trend will only become more prominent,” Louise Hill, Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer at GoHenry explained. “When it comes to the immediacy and availability of service, they just expect what they need to be there and working. Having a technology partner like Rackspace Technology is therefore vital to ensure our services are scalable, secure, and immediately available. Thanks to this partnership, we are confident that we can empower our young customers to be ambassadors of a new cashless society.”
Mrs. T’s Pierogies
Rackspace Technology migrated Mrs. T’s Pierogies, the largest provider of frozen pierogies in the United States, to Google Cloud.Rackspace Technology assisted the pierogy-producer in migrations services, applications services, and managed storage, which has helped the organization improve forecasting, optimize promotions, and better manage its disaster recovery efforts. Mrs. T’s has realized immediate benefits of the upgraded system, with a 60 percent acceleration in their batch transactions and on-screen end-user transactions.
“While this project started as a mandated technology project, Rackspace’s work really opened up new doors for us to undergo a massive digital transformation,” said Timothy Coyle, Director of Information Systems & Technology at Mrs. T’s Pierogies. “Not only did we migrate to Google Cloud seamlessly, but we were able to retool IT infrastructure that is key to our core business success. Rackspace Technology was a one-stop-shop, a single pane of glass that truly took our technology stack to the next level.”
