The advantage for customers: Regionality, expertise and growth

BU PCG X Google in Germany has been part of PCG since 2021, and represents the Google Cloud part in the German-speaking region of the group. PCG brings together more than 350 Cloud experts.

“Since day one, we have relied exclusively on Google Cloud solutions. We are proud to have achieved MSP status. This means a lot to us and shows us that our expertise and the quality of our services are seen and recognized not only by our customers, but also by our long-time hyperscaler partner Google Cloud,” said Benny Woletz, Managing Director at BU PCG X Google in Germany.

The MSP status also means a number of advantages for the customers who are supported by PCG in their Google Cloud environment, both during the initial set-up and during the continuous further development and operation.

MSP status distinguishes PCG’s proprietary processes, solutions and, most importantly, expertise as reliable, secure and technologically sustainable. Security, efficiency and technology are three of the key factors that speak for the cloud, on which PCG customers can now trust all the more after achieving the MSP status with Google Cloud. The MSP status also provides the opportunity to deliver new service offerings with attractive features and in close coordination with Google Cloud.

In addition, visibility within the Google Partner Network continues to increase. Especially for German-speaking customers, PCG as an MSP is one of the best options as a choice of partner.

“Regionality is our big plus. International consulting and IT groups queue up to be included on the short list of Google Cloud MSP partners. We understand German-speaking SMEs and enterprise companies because we are simply cut from the same cloth. In terms of expertise, professionalism and experience, we can compete at all levels,” added Oliver Schallhorn, CEO of PCG.

The future plans of BU PCG X Google in Germany are also geared towards growth. Within PCG, the Google Cloud unit in Germany has plans to expand from around 70 experts to 100 by the end of the year. This will also be accompanied by the number of personal Google Cloud certifications, which can be translated into faster provisioning and broader expertise for customers. The development of further Google Cloud specialisations is also being planned.
