Scalable, Intelligent & Dynamic Retail Experiences.

Build Dynamic Retail Experiences and Win the Hearts of Customers with Our Flexible, Secured Technology and Integrated Big Data Solutions.

Spikes in traffic are great for business…if your infrastructure and operations can keep up. When every millisecond of uptime counts, global retailers are turning to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) for our flexible storage, reliable network, and powerful computing. Scale instantly to meet the demand of both pre-planned sale days and unexpected surges in traffic. During slower sales cycles, GCP can easily scale down, and you only pay for the time you use. Our solutions are easily adaptable for multi-cloud or hybrid environments, and we have services to help you migrate quickly and securely.

We don’t have to tell you that profitability in retail depends on staying ahead of the curve. Modern infrastructure is as important as modern products, and today, that infrastructure needs CloudPhysics with Google Cloud Platform.

Moving to GCP helps you improve agility to stay on top of what’s next. Unify your customer data to unlock insights and deliver dynamic customer experiences that keep people coming back. Transform your operations with mobility solutions. With CloudPhysics, you get all these time-saving, intel-generating solutions, including the ability to run commercial, open source, or homegrown commercial platforms at scale on GCP.

When transitioning to GCP and CloudPhysics, it’s important to have the right partner—one who’s as focused on cost efficiency and customer service as you. Launch Consulting is an expert guide for both these services. We simplify the journey to the cloud with a quick assessment of your environment. Over just a couple of weeks, we’ll provide recommendations on how to right-size your VMs, profile your workloads for cloud migration readiness, estimate the effort to migrate, and compare your current costs to GCP-based options to optimize your ongoing costs – and we’ll do it all for free.

Cost savings, convenience, and great service to boot? Our model sounds like…well, your model! Grow, scale, and compete with CloudPhysics and GCP, powered by Launch.

Grow Revenue & Reduce Costs.

We don’t have to tell you that profitability in retail depends on staying ahead of the curve. Modern infrastructure is as important as modern products, and today, that infrastructure needs CloudPhysics with Google Cloud Platform.

As you know, there are many pieces to the revenue growth puzzle in retail. Google Cloud can help you learn more about your customer segments and improve customer experience, provide powerful analytics that improve product offerings and services, better forecast, be proactive to seasonal and annual trends, create better promotions, analyze and shine above your competition, create optimal pricing strategies, and in many more ways that lead to revenue growth.

With Google Cloud, cost reductions can be realized in many ways such as increased operational efficiencies, powerful analytics that improve your customer retention efforts, better inventory tracking and implementation of just-in-time strategies, and many more ways to decrease costs. Moving to Google Cloud can also reduce costs in terms of maintaining and managing your IT systems since your company does not need to purchase and upkeep expensive on-site systems and equipment. Cost reductions will also be realized in less energy consumption and fewer time delays. Companies that utilize Google Cloud Platform typically realize 60% in cost savings compared to companies that use other cloud services in the form of sustained use discounts, rightsizing recommendations, list price discounts, and more. As a Google Premier Partner, Launch will also assist your company in receiving a free trial with a $300 credit to get your projects up and running smoothly.

Improve Security & Compliance.

We do our part to help you protect patient data by offering comprehensive identity management, network security, and threat detection and response capabilities to protect your business against current and future threats. To earn your trust, we certify Google Cloud Platform and G Suite against the most rigorous global security and privacy standards like ISO 27001, ISO 27017, and ISO 27018, and make certain products available under applicable HIPAA business associate agreements.
