Woolpert has been awarded the Google Cloud 2016 Fastest Growing Company Award for Maps Customer Success for North America. The award recognizes the geospatial services firm for its demonstrated sales, marketing, technical and support excellence to help customers of all sizes transform their businesses and solve a wide range of challenges with the adoption of Maps.

Jon Downey, director of the Google Geospatial Sales Team at Woolpert, says he is honored by the recognition and excited to see dynamic growth. “This award represents our continued commitment to our Google partnership and our ability to steadily grow in this market,” he says. “What sets Woolpert apart in the Google Cloud ecosystem is that approximately half of our firm’s business is geospatial, so this extension of our work makes sense. We’re not a sales organization and we’re not here to push software. We’re here to help.”

Woolpert helps customers navigate the Google Maps for Work licensing process and advises them on the proper implementation of the Google Maps API within their Cloud solutions.

The national architecture, engineering and geospatial (AEG) firm saw its Google sales grow 250 percent in 2016, as compared to 2015. The firm’s sales were $3.25 million for its Google division and just shy of $150 million overall last year.

Woolpert, which has been a Google for Work Partner since March 2015 and a Google for Work Premier Partner since last summer, also was named a Premier Partner in the Google Cloud Program for 2017.

This extensive geospatial background enables Woolpert to add value and dimension to its Google Cloud services.

“We don’t just have the knowledge related to the Google data and deliverables, but we have a professional services staff capable of elevating that data,” Downey says. “We’re able to offer consultation on these services and that takes the relationship a step further, benefitting all involved.”

Vice President of Global Partner Sales and Strategic Alliances at Google Cloud Bertrand Yansouni says partners are vital contributors to Google Cloud’s growing ecosystem.

“Partners help us meet the needs of a diverse range of customers, from up-and-coming startups to Fortune 500 companies. … We are proud to provide this recognition to Woolpert, who has consistently demonstrated customer success across Maps.”
