Sporton International provides testing and certification services to major hardware and mobile communications companies. Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, Sporton employs 450 people across 12 locations in three countries. In the past, the company relied on multiple providers for conferencing and telephony solutions that did not integrate with its email and instant messaging solutions from Microsoft. It wanted to provide a more robust, cost-effective solution to help employees work together and with customers around the world. In March 2010, Sporton upgraded its communications solution to Microsoft Lync Server 2010 to provide enterprise voice and ad hoc collaboration and online meeting capabilities. Sporton found that the new solution would help it greatly reduce costs and boost employee productivity by as much as 30 percent.
