Energizer connects employees to both work and personal features with Windows Phone 7
Inspired Dwellings, a specialist home cinema and audio-video firm, was growing fast, with many employees working away from the office. They needed a way to share diaries, email, and files with people wherever they were so that everyone was up-to-date with the latest information. Microsoft Exchange Online lets the company’s 15 staff get their email and diaries on their PCs, notebooks, or smartphones - and Microsoft SharePoint Online allows them store files online, giving everyone access to a single, central version of all the firm’s important documents. Microsoft’s online services were easier to manage than installing an in-house server. As subscription services, they were also easier on the company’s cash flow. As a result, Inspired Dwellings now works more flexibly and efficiently.
Recognizing that innovation is a key to its success in the marketplace, Energizer uses technology to help its employees stay connected to the enterprise. When the company distributes corporate phones, many employees also carry a personal phone to get the user interface and applications that they want to use.
Energizer evaluated a beta version of Windows Phone 7 and was impressed with the fluid user experience and smart design features such as the customizable Live Tile user interface on the Start screen.
With Windows Phone 7, Energizer can connect employees to Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Office so they can send email, edit presentations, or record and share meeting notes directly from the phone while also providing the personal experiences employees want, such as a captivating user interface and applications for video, music, games and more.
