Stemcell lifestyle

The Client

STEMCELL Technologies provides high-quality cell culture media, cell separation technologies, instruments, accessory products, and educational resources to scientists around the world working on stem cell, immunology, cancer,regenerative medicine, and cellulartherapy research.
Six Factor partnered with this Vancouver-based global biotechnology company to optimize their existing SaaS licence structures and actively deliver a tailored curriculum to staff teams.

The Fundamental Challenge

With a dozen locations across the globe and a strong distributor network in 25 countries, STEMCELL needed to stay focused on their business. They had already realized the benefits of Google Workspace, but were locked into a costly one-size-fits all contract.
Further, staff engagement and adoption rates of the product set were low, which meant that STEMCELL were notrealizing the full benefit of being on Google’s collaborative cloud platform.

Our Solutions

Tailored Managed Services Program

As Western Canada’s leading Google Cloud Partner, Six Factorleveraged its relationship with Google to package the optimal combination of licence types that made the most sense for STEMCELL’s business.

With this multi-tiered approach, STEMCELL realized tighter alignment to the varied role dynamics in the organization (managers had access to better data), gained immediate cost reductions, and found better governance and continuity with their enterprise-owned data.

The program also included a robust education and learning curriculum to orient new and existing staff teams. Offered as two interactive foundation labs, employees received the most up-to-date information and knowledge forthe core Google Workspace applications.
This learning equipped them to know how to get the most out of theirtools, which resulted in improvements to STEMCELL’s frontline adoption rate and increased overall productivity forthe business.
