LTech and Gallaudet University

Company Overview
LTech Consulting has been solving problems for both large enterprises and startup companies since 2001. Our team of dedicated search, collaboration, and web engineers empower businesses with innovative technologies such as Google Apps and the Google Search Appliance. Gallaudet University is the first U.S. college for the education of the deaf and hard-of-hearing. Established by a philanthropist in 1856 and located in Washington, D.C., Gallaudet is the only university in the United States in which all programs are designed for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

Gallaudet wanted to upgrade their email system from OutBlaze to a more user-friendly system such as Google Apps. Their main goal was to free their users from the volume of spam they were receiving. They turned to LTech for assistance with migrating their email boxes, single-sign-on, and provisioning.

LTech provisioned SyncSuite for Google Apps into the Gallaudet environment and built a custom capture application to obtain addresses and passwords.

Gallaudet University received a robust email solution that fit their needs and saved them time and budget. The custom capture application allowed users to perform the email migration at their own pace, with a goal of all users migrated before Fall semester 2008.
"I really appreciate you working with us on this. You've been great!" -- Jon, Director of Information Technology Services
