Executive Summary

World-class manufacturer of lifting equipment, Konecranes needed a global unified communication and collaboration solution for its 8,000 employees, many of whom work in remote locations. The opportunity arose to replace its diverse collaboration technologies with a standardised hosted solution using the Software-as-a-Service model to ease cashflow. Avanade, a joint venture between Accenture and Microsoft, recommended Microsoft Business Productivity Online Standard Suite as a cloud service. The company forecasts it will significantly reduce its internal travel expenditure by 2012, with further efficiency gains from outsourcing IT support. Every employee is already using the same collaboration tools, which supports the vision of a single global company. The system is flexible and scalable, and will easily accommodate new customers, partners, suppliers, and future acquisitions.
