Google Teams Up with BearingPoint to Increase Sales of Search Appliances

Google partners with BearingPoint from News.com covers a partnership that will enable Google to better support the Google Search Appliance and the Google Desktop for Enterprise software.


The deal will not only increase awareness and sales of the product but also enable Google to offer support contracts of $10,000 or more per year for "training and developer consultation" services.

Dave Girouard, general manager for Google Enterprise said that BearingPoint was the largest partner of Google's "Enterprise Professional Program" that enabled third party companies to support the products, since Google was not staffed to do so internally.
