Business Situation

This client develops, manufactures and markets pharmaceuticals in more than 100 countries and wanted to create an optimised, market competitive communications platform to improve collaboration among its global business partners and sales teams.

  • Modern cloud collaboration: Microsoft Office 365 for Outlook Online, OneDrive cloud storage, Skype for Business, Teams and SharePoint Online, plus more than 10 interactive Surface Hubs
  • Cutting-edge security and management: Migration to robust Microsoft Windows 10 and implementation of Microsoft Intune management for mobile devices and SCCM
  • Operational efficiency and stability: Microsoft Azure-hosted infrastructures across Europe, Asia and the U.S., plus shared storage on OneDrive


Today, this pharmaceutical company enjoys a healthy, modernised workforce and numerous benefits:

  • With cloud communication tools, it is now easier and faster to collaborate with internal and external business partners.
  • Mobility management and system upgrades are ensuring a secure and reliable bedrock for “anytime, anywhere” access for its partners.
  • IT costs are now aligned to industry benchmarks.
