Gold Fields Limited is a South African gold mining firm. Headquartered in Johannesburg, the company owns and operates mines on several continents including Africa, Australia, and South America. With employees working in different locations around the world,
Gold Fields faced a challenge keeping workers on the same version of Microsoft Office. In addition, employee demand to access Office from more than one device was growing. When Gold Fields learned about Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus, the full client version
of Office delivered as a service, it decided to deploy the solution to a group of early adopters to evaluate the latest deployment and business productivity capabilities. By using Office 365 ProPlus, Gold Fields believes it can simplify administration, reduce
licensing costs, provide support to multiple devices, and improve employee productivity.
