hhpberlin - Office 365 (Office subscription)
hhpberlin is one of the largest fire-safety consultancies in the world. The IT staff previously deployed Microsoft Office 2010 and several 2010 Microsoft server applications to help its employees improve communication and collaboration. As the company grew, it wanted to examine if cloud-based services would help reduce costs while supporting growth and employee productivity. hhpberlin joined the Microsoft Office 365 Rapid Deployment Program to test the online services, including Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online and Microsoft Lync Online. After a short pilot, it decided to purchase a Microsoft Office 365 subscription license plan, which includes the Microsoft Office Professional Plus desktop suite. With Office 365, the company expects to reduce IT costs by 36 percent and improve reliability as it continues to grow.
