Today’s post was written by John Case, corporate vice president for Microsoft.
Last month, we announced several significant new capabilities in Office 365, including Skype for Business meetings and voice services, and new security and analytics capabilities, all of which are now available in the Office 365 E5 suite. We’ve since seen tremendous interest in these new services from customers of all sizes. And today, I’m thrilled to announce that global real estate services leader Cushman & Wakefield has signed up on Office 365 E5.
With 43,000 employees in 60 countries, Cushman & Wakefield will implement Office 365 as its comprehensive communications and collaboration solution.
CTO Robert Franch explains, “As our company grows, so does our investment in modern collaboration and security capabilities. With Office 365, we are delivering the office of the future to our employees, with cloud-based voice and conferencing that’s part of a complete productivity and collaboration suite.”
Having recently merged with DTZ Worldwide and Cassidy Turley, Cushman & Wakefield found there were several conferencing and voice platforms in use across the company, including Skype for Business, Blue Jeans, GoToMeeting and Cisco. With Office 365, Cushman & Wakefield will now be able to standardize on a single solution.
We couldn’t be more excited that Cushman & Wakefield has chosen Office 365 to modernize their communications and bring their newly merged workforces together.
