"Working with itopia quickly and securely enabled our team members to remain connected with customers as we rapidly scaled our work from home capabilities. We are excited to continue building upon our partnership with itopia, as we have incorporated their remote virtual desktop solution as a key component of our recently launched Work Anywhere solution."

"itopia is here to ensure that remote workers have a fast and easy way to continue to do their jobs remotely. We're glad that TELUS International was up and running in such a short time."

"With TELUS International and other customers, it's great to see our partner itopia dedicating its solution to our mission."

With the ability to deploy remote environments on Google Cloud's global network within 24 hours, itopia has a unique speed advantage over competitive solutions. itopia and TELUS International's partnership demonstrates the importance of cloud-based workstations in a time when many employees need to ensure data security while working from home.
