Organization

PTG is one of the biggest energy industry in Thailand. In year 1988, PTG started a business as Paktai Chueplerng Company Limited. The mission was to operate tank farms and distribute gas for the community, the fishing industry and factories, starting from the south of Thailand. Later, the name was changed to PTG Energy Public Company Limited and the business shifted to provide high quality ready-made gas under the brand PT.

  • Legacy System: Freeware
  • Number of Employees: 12,000

Challenge

Earlier, the company struggled in both internal and external communication by using freeware email system. The system was always down from time to time.  The communication, especially the meeting arrangement, was a big pain point. With original number of staffs, 300, this was not a big problem, until the growth of the company size expand significantly. The communication via electronic channel became the issue. Unreliable freeware system caused a lost in working efficiency and torn down employees’ morality, due to the unpredictable communication discontinuity. 

Solution

The company looked for all world-class solutions which was able to tackle the problems. PTG decided to choose Google G Suite as a tool to communicate with all 1,300 gas stations nationwide. The key reason PTG chose G Suite is the collaboration capabilities. With the business plan to expand 350 stations every year, the company needs to work fast in order to accomplish the target. The collaboration across the functions via email, calendar and drive is what PTG has been looking for.

The scope of the project includes:

  • File storage and File share using Google Drive
  • Meeting appointment by Google Calendar 
  • Provisioning G Suite accounts 
  • Training and business transformation

Result

Many collaboration processes have been improved with G Suite. The meeting arrangement across the head quarter and remote sites are easily organized via Google Calendar. Communication via email is much more reliable and stable. The files are easily accessed via file sharing on Google Drive without on-premise infrastructure investment. The file access and collaboration are efficiently active nationwide.

From investment perspective, PTG can cut the cost in license purchasing, which is normally complex. G Suite is not only an email, but it is an effective collaboration tool. With regards to price-performance and return on investment, the company already came to the break-even point.

The company found out that non-valued tasks are reduced by 80%, on G G Suite. The business processes are streamlined with the better collaboration by at least 3 times.
