Carlsberg group is now the fourth-largest brewer of beer in the world with a roster of 500 different brands. As they are expanding globally more than ever, they have chosen cutting-edge technology from Microsoft to centrally manage their operations around the world. They have selected Microsoft Office 365 as their complete productivity and collaboration solution that employees can use to connect with each other.
“One way we are helping our employees work better together is by deploying Office 365,” said Etienne Dock, vice president of IT architecture and sourcing at Carlsberg. “No matter what device or distance, the cloud is breaking down traditional barriers so we’re better able to focus on brewing the best beer in the world.”
Employees use Microsoft Exchange Online for email and calendaring; they take advantage of Microsoft Lync Online to connect via webconferencing and instant messaging; virtual teams are collaborating on projects using Microsoft SharePoint Online; and employees are adopting the Yammer Enterprise social networking platform for messaging and collaboration.
The Carlsberg Group is also taking advantage of Office 365’s integrated productivity and collaboration services to launch the Carlsberg Supply Chain (CSC) — its most important GloCal initiative — to help streamline its global supply chain. CSC uses the webconferencing, instant messaging and collaborative team sites within Office 365 services to centrally manage the procurement, production, logistics and planning functions that previously occurred in isolation across the world.
