Google Apps Reseller Helps Businesses Recover After Hurricane Sandy

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It's a holiday season, but for many on the Eastern seaboard, it feels like anything but. Hurricane Sandy has caused billions of dollars worth of damage and, right now, millions of people are simply trying to pull their lives and businesses back together. There's a long road ahead and the victims of Sandy are going to need all the aid they can get.

"The last thing these people need is to have to fork up thousands of dollars just to get their business up and communicating again," says Crisantos Hajibrahim head of ViWo Inc., a Google Apps Reseller. Google Apps for Business is a cloud based email service with a robust office suite and data storage, fortified by reliable servers all around the globe. Inspired by Thomas Paquet, CEO of G-Apps Masters, Hajibrahim has decided to waive Google Apps deployment fees for businesses affected by Sandy. "I want to help everyone in the best way I know how. If you're a business owner suffering from this horrendous storm, I want to help you get back on your feet. We will deploy Google Apps at no charge to you."

Andrew Racine, Sales Manager for ViWo, is proud to take part in the relief effort, "Educating businesses about the true, real life value of keeping your data in the cloud is what we do everyday. We want your business to be stable, even in the wake of a catastrophe such as this when hardware and computers are destroyed, their data will now all be saved in the cloud. Of course, we hope for the best, but life is unpredictable. Most people are too far away to help, but we're in a unique position to provide some real assistance."

Empathy can drive some truly remarkable actions. It seems that remarkable is just what the East Coast is needing. Hopefully, Crisantos and ViWo will set the standard for businesses all around the country, contributing to the greater good, and making sure that all Americans can bounce back, even from heartbreaking hazards like Sandy.
