How Cyber Planking helps unite ShuttleCloud during the quarantine!

How the best work-from-home tool can be attempting to be human!

March 26th, 2020

We’re all here; it is unavoidable. Current world events have most of us and our teams working from home. There are millions of articles on how to be productive remotely, how to set up your home office, and what are the best tools to use.

What I find missing are articles on how to keep your culture going, how to stay “human” and not become virtual avatars. How to keep the unique identifiers that make our teams special and make us bond at the workplace.

One of ShuttleCloud’s core values is“we are in the trenches, together,”we are a team that helps each other out. Don’t get me wrong; you can still do this remotely. I know remote companies that do this every day.

However, how do you adapt if this is your new reality? In a team full of camaraderie, high fives, and jokes, what can we do?

Spoiler: I don’t have a definite answer, but I have cyber planking:

Our founder Eduardo, taking on the challenge

Yes, every day at 12:33 pm, the ShuttleCloud team unites, we put our laptops down, see our faces in a non-meeting environment, make a joke or two, and then we plank:

Rafa having a great laugh!

What’s been even better are people who are not planking joining in. Why? I guess it’s because we are in the trenches together.

All you need is the following:

  • Your favorite video conference software
  • A designated timer (they do not get to plank 😞)
  • And once somebody falls, have them shout out their name.

And of course, make it into a challenge:

Competition makes everything better, we compete individually and by tiers

Recap on Slack included:

Carlos does a great job as our timekeeper

In the spirit of competition, our team average is 2:52, with a median of 2:46. I want to call out our friends at SheetGo & MarketGoo (fully-remote team, not sure about fit) and get their times.

I would also like to remind leaders not solely to focus on productivity tools in these coming months but also to keep in mind the well being of your teams. Let your culture and values guide you.

So stay safe, keep productive, and be “human” as best you can.

Our team just can’t beat Uma’s (Ryan’s dog) time:

Ryan's dog Uma is our plank champion!

Italian Email Providers

Italiaonline, the parent company of both Libero and Virgilio mail, has a solid footing in the Italian email market. With more than 11.1 million monthly users, it is the preferred email provider over both Outlook and Yahoo.

According to data from Audiweb / Nielsen, the breakdown of monthly active users in Italy is the following:

  1. Gmail – 19.2 million users
  2. Virgilio and Libero – 11.1 million users
  3. Outlook – 6.2 million users
  4. TIM (Telecom Italia) – 4.0 million users 
  5. Yahoo! – 2.0 million users

German Email Providers

The business market in Germany has always been fascinating to me — Email providers are no different. The main email providers in the German Email Market: Deutsche Telekom & United Internet AG (WEB.DE, GMX, Freenet.de, Strato)  launched “E-mail made in Germany” initiatives in 2013 and those efforts have not been in vain.

Per a study by Convios Consulting GmbH around 67% of German Internet users have their main email inbox provided by a German Provider. Das ist gut!

GMX (25.3%), WEB.DE (23.9%), Gmail (14.8%), Outlook (9.3%), T-Online (8.4%), 1&1 (3.6%), Freenet (2.5%)

The Global Email Market

The email market keeps growing at a steady pace and will reach nearly 5 billion users by 2024.

It was in October of 2018 that Gmail announced it had reached 1.5 billion active accounts: https://twitter.com/gmail/status/1055806807174725633

The worldwide email user market also follows suit. According to the Radicati Group, email is expected to grow to 4.4 billion unique users by 2024. 

Email accounts are also expected to reach 1.86 accounts per person. I, for one, already have five (two business and three personal).

What is the difference between ShuttleCloud integrated within Gmail and the ShuttleCloud G Suite Marketplace Tool?

Depending on what your final goal is, you will be better off using 1. ShuttleCloud’s integration within Gmail or 2. the ShuttleCloud Migration Tool in the G Suite Marketplace.

1. If what you want is to import mail and/or contacts to your Gmail or G Suite account from a prior webmail provider such as Hotmail or Yahoo then the ShuttleCloud app within Gmail is the best option for you!

Your users will be able to complete their migrations following the steps in this article: https://blog.shuttlecloud.com/how-do-i-import-email-from-another-email-account-into-a-gmail/ or if you prefer a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEeorOjbbNU&t=

2. If, on the other hand, what you want to do is import emails to your G Suite account from a business email provider such as G Suite, Office 365, or others, then the ShuttleCloud Migration Tool in the G Suite Marketplace App is what you are looking for! This option includes bulk import and dedicated support.

So, going a bit deeper. What is the difference between both options?

ShuttleCloud integrated within Gmail:
– It’s a free service provided by Gmail.
– User-driven migration within the Gmail interface.

– Includes email forwarding and contacts import capabilities.

ShuttleCloud G Suite Marketplace app
– Has 1 free migration, then each additional migration is $19.95.
– Includes dedicated support and advice from G Suite Experts.
– Admin-driven or user-driven from a separate interface to Gmail’s UI. (email us about admin-driven bulk migrations)
