This post is part of App Awareness, our month-long series where we spotlight a different Google Apps Marketplace application every day in April. This week we’re focusing on admin tools that help make Google Apps domain administrators’ lives easier! The applications we chose to highlight demonstrate excellent integration with Google Apps, and we either use and love the product or know a lot of other people who do.

ShuttleCloud – Google Apps Migration and Data Transfer


If you’ve ever wanted to change your company’s name and therefore your Google Apps domain, you know how frustrating it can be to find out that Google doesn’t offer this service.

Not to worry though, ShuttleCloud fills this gap with a wide array of cloud to cloud migration tools for both personal account migrations – Gmail, Yahoo, AOL and even GoDaddy – and enterprise migrations for domain transfers.

Personal account migrations are simple and can be done with a few clicks. After installing ShuttleCloud’s out-of-the-box tool, users enter current account information as well as destination account credentials and ShuttleCloud does all the work, seamlessly and efficiently.

The same system applies to business-oriented email providers, like Google Apps, Zimbra and Exchange (IMAP must be enabled). But, for more complicated enterprise-grade migrations like a full migration of a Google Apps domain, including Mail, Calendar, Sites and more, custom solutions are provided such as weekend migrations to minimize service interruptions as well as a year of mail forwarding from the previous domain.

Google Apps Integration

ShuttleCloud is fully integrated with Google Apps in order to flawlessly transfer data from one account or domain to another account or domain, including Mail, Docs, Sites, Calendars, Contacts and even labels and stars, and integration with Chat is forthcoming.

Why We Like It

ShuttleCloud fulfills a need that is niche but important, and they do so in a straightforward, user-friendly way. Their customer service is top-notch and they’ve migrated over 1 billion emails to date!  Overall ease-of-use, a fully cloud-based migration, and bonus points for filling in a feature gap left behind by Google make ShuttleCloud a favorite of ours.

For more information regarding pricing, see ShuttleCloud’s listing in the Google Apps Marketplace.

Can you guess tomorrow’s app?
Hint: It helps you run workflows in the cloud.

About App Awareness Month

App Awareness Month At BetterCloud, we’ve seen first hand the impact Google Apps can have on a business: extreme cost cutting, streamlined management processes, enhanced collaboration and mobility and much more.

During our time as an independent software provider focused 100% on the Google Apps platform, we’ve interacted with thousands of organizations using Google Apps and we’ve discovered one common trend: knowledge and awareness of third-party applications that extend and enhance Google Apps is extremely limited.

This April, we’re devoting the BetterCloud blog to educating Google Apps users on the wide array of applications available for Google Apps today. These products not only enhance native Google Apps functionalities, but bring a diverse range of services from CRM, to expense management, process and systems management and more to your Google Apps environment. More importantly, adding these applications to Google Apps allows you to retire expensive legacy software licenses and creates a more cohesive organization.
