Barilla Group has been a major Italian food company and a worldwide leader in the pasta market since its humble beginnings in 1877 as a bread and pasta shop in Parma, Italy.
With more than 13,000 employees around the world, the company operates in more than 100 countries. To help ensure their growing workforce remains tightly connected, Barilla explored opportunities to evolve the way their employees communicate, collaborate and interact. After evaluating a handful of cloud platforms, Barilla Group decided to deploy Microsoft Office 365 because of Microsoft’s expertise and proven track record of providing enterprise-grade productivity solutions.
With support from Teorema Engineering Srl, a Microsoft Gold Competency Partner, Barilla successfully deployed Office 365 to its employees who are now collaborating, interacting and communicating more easily with Lync Online and SharePoint Online as well as accessing email and documents from any kind of device in any location. Best of all? Barilla’s travel costs have been reduced by approximately 30 percent now that people can connect face to face through a click of a button versus a plane ride.
Building on the success of their deployment, Barilla plans to continue growing the integration between mobile phones and Office 365.
