independent mortgage bankers in the Northeast, Merrimack Mortgage Company
(MMC) continues to lead the market. With continued, exceptional growth, MMC's

As a key component of their strategic plan, MMC chose Google Apps for Business
for its integrated communication and file services. Enabling greater
information sharing across existing and new offices, Google Apps also creates
a consistent environment that meets governance and audit requirements.

"The business side of me saw Google Apps as a slam dunk from a ROI and TCO
perspective, and the technologist in me also couldn't argue against
introducing variable costs, scalability, availability, and OS and hardware
independence," noted Matthew Seaton, CIO of Merrimack Mortgage Company.
Cumulus Global recommended and helped us deploy CloudLock and Backupify for
compliance, policy enforcement, risk mitigation, and data protection. This
allowed us to fully embrace Google Apps and made both my Chief Compliance
Officer and CFO very happy."

Integrating Google Apps and CloudLock, Merrimack Mortgage Company extends its
security perimeter to the cloud. MMC ensures its use of email, calendars,
contacts, and files stored and shared via Google Drive comply with regulations
like SOX, GLBA, and ISO, as well as internal policies. Backupify protects

"I am not sure if I would have felt confident with my decision to move our
company's communication and collaboration needs to Google Apps for Business

third party," said Seaton. "Our management team was relieved by the value
proposition. We pay as we grow rather than making large up-front capital

Since MMC's initial Google Apps for Business implementation in June of 2011,
MMC has increased sales staff by 15% and the number of physical locations by
26%. Operations staff increases have been minimal in comparison. The greatest
benefit, in regards to increased sales staffing and locations, is the ability
turn-up new team members literally in minutes. In more recent months, MMC has
seen back-to-back monthly company record breaking sales numbers.
