Google Inc (GOOGL) Crushes Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)’s Claims Regarding Customers Switch


In Worldwide Partner Conference 2014, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) claimed that more than seven hundred and eighty five customers have switched to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Office 365 from Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s Apps. Microsoft didn’t give any proofs for this claim, but shown a slide having the names of the pronounced customers who made the switch. Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) immediately started investigating this claim and has recently come up with a response. According to Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL), 5,000+ companies sign up for Google Apps on a daily basis and thousands of these companies switch from Microsoft. In a Forbes article, Ben Kepes mentioned Google’s response and said that it was already expected that Google will come up with a befitting response on Microsoft’s claims.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has apparently given a supporting proof for its claim by quoting one of its resellers, Cloud Solutions Technologies (CST). According to an estimate by CST, out of around 12 million Google Apps users across over 20 countries, more than 48% were previously using Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Exchange.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) went one step further in prodding Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) on its claims. Google questioned the authenticity of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s claims regarding names of fifteen companies which were shown in the WPC 2014. According to Google, Smithfield is still using Google Apps and they renewed their contract for 2014. City of Edmonton is also working with Google up till now. Arysta Lifescience and Dixons were never Apps customers, according to Google. If these irregularities in Microsoft’s claims are proven true, this could mean a humiliation in the media for the company.

Kepes said that when he reached Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s PR department about their stance on this statement from Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL), the response was positive and Microsoft partially accepted their mistake. Microsoft said that the claims in WPC 2014 were about customers who are at “different levels” of deployment with Microsoft.
