Belgian bank insurance company KBC invests in Office 365 for collaboration

As the financial industry continues to recover from a global recession and identify ways to increase efficiency, cloud technology is a growing trend in this sector. Office 365 is helping many of these companies facilitate this transition to the cloud, and we have one such customer to announce today.

After carefully examining various solutions available on the market, KBC, a bank-insurer company in Belgium with 37,000 employees, has chosen Office 365 in order to enhance responsiveness and improve collaboration across the organization. Staff at KBC’s headquarters already use Microsoft Lync for instant messaging and conferencing, and are now expanding their use of Office 365.

KBC is deploying Exchange Online and SharePoint Online to enable employees to work from anywhere without missing a beat.  These tools will allow virtual teams to work more effectively and efficiently from the office or from a remote location.
