Founded in 1992, Arte France is a cultural television channel that focuses on programming about the arts and culture. Based near Paris, Arte France broadcasts throughout France and in Germany, and also operates a radio station. Many of Arte France's programs are available in other countries via cable. The company's 450 French employees worked hard to create and broadcast leading-edge programming, yet struggled with an unreliable and outdated email solution that need continual updates. Microsoft Office 365, with its cloud-based Microsoft Exchange email solution, gave Arte France employees a familiar, professional, and reliable platform for all of their communication needs, both internally and with its offices in Germany.
