When TV Record in Brazil prepared to broadcast the 2012 Olympic Games, it knew its offices in Brazil needed to maintain constant contact with the broadcast team in London. Luckily, the company had a communications solution, Microsoft Lync Server 2013 that helped it control costs for phone bills and conferencing services. TV Record used Lync Server 2013 constantly during the games to ensure broadcast teams in each country could share ideas and thoroughly plan broadcasts. With more than 5,000 employees in offices on five continents, the need for effective communications at Record goes beyond the Olympics. Record is using Lync to help its geographically distributed teams work together effectively and reduce costs on phone bills and travel expenses.
