Years of growth and consolidation had made collaboration a new strategic priority for uvex – a worldwide leader in developing, manufacturing and distributing products and services for the safety and protection of people at work, in sport and for leisure pursuits.
Leadership knew that a fragmented ecosystem of productivity applications, email services and address books was holding it back from its ongoing desire to top the industry. So they set out on a path to build a workplace of the future leveraging the Office 365 suite.
“‘It can’t be done’ is not even in our vocabulary. Thanks to the work done with Avanade, our people are better set to innovate than ever before.”
Avanade focused on delivering a modern Office 365 based workplace to give uvex users a compelling new collaboration platform, a unified Active Directory solution and more control for administrators. The solution covered everything from upgrading older systems to the newest Office, a coordinated staged roll-out, an identity management migration as well as intensive training, change management and technical support through and after delivery.
ResultsThe new digital workplace is making an impact on uvex end users, administrators and the bottom line. The new Office 365 and Active Directory solution from Avanade provides:
- Workplace of the future: Unlocking greater efficiency and productivity with end users across the entire global uvex family, on every platform, and as easily accessible as possible.
- Modern IT: Reduced pains and costs for the IT team, as well as simplified account management and support, enabling greater self-service.
