Team Building Fun with our Customers!
This week, we enjoyed an amazing team-building event with our clients from Summit Funding, Inc. at K1 Speed in Sacramento, an indoor go-kart racing facility. We most certainly had a tremendous amount of fun strategizing and racing each other!
Team building outside the realms of work is a fundamental requirement at BigGreen IT, where our ‘work hard play hard’ philosophy is incredibly important to us. This particular event was arranged as the culmination of a huge project completion with Summit Funding, Inc.
The project involved a complex conversion to Office 365. The Big Green team moved 1000+ mailboxes in a weekend cut-over migration for Summit Funding Inc. Summit is located in 14 states and ¾ of the company is not in one location. Moving this many mailboxes over the course of a weekend without losing any email, and keeping everyone working, was not a simple task. While I will admit that the process was not 100% seamless, we were extremely happy with the results! CFO of Summit, Jim Hagen, called the process a resounding success. Summit had been trying to accomplish this migration without help for a year and a half, and was so pleased that we were able to make it happen, from start to finish, in a month.
Knowing that many of K1 speed’s regular customers are professional racecar drivers, we thought this would be an excellent venue to blow off steam! The key to victory involves strategy – something this group knows all about. We had a great time racing the all-electric ‘green’ vehicles, which also resonate with the Big Green IT philosophy of very fast, very green.
The final tally saw Ryan from Big Green in first place, soundly trouncing the competition! Our very own Nathan tried to come in last, but was resoundingly beaten by Brad from Summit. This team-building event will not be forgotten for some time, and we look forward to similar bonding events with our customers in the New Year.
