Southern Union, one of the largest diversified natural gas companies in the United States, faced a challenge familiar to most large, fast-growing companies: the need to use information to support growth rather than put up roadblocks to that growth. Employees needed faster access to authorized information and a better way to boost security around restricted data. They needed to share information not only with team members within the company, but also with business partners. The company now has the solution it needs in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Southern Union has used the software to create a comprehensive and highly successful information platform that is unifying employees throughout the company, increasing the speed and accuracy of collaboration and work processes.
