Microsoft Expands Its Cloud Customer Base

Microsoft Expands its Cloud Customer Base

Microsoft has expanded its customer base for its popular suite of cloud applications.

Several companies including Advocate Health Care, Manpower Inc., Shell and Tampa General Hospital are using Microsoft Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS), to enjoy benefits such as better collaboration and productivity.

Manpower, a provider of innovative work-force solutions is moving to Microsoft Exchange Online to accelerate employee potential, innovation, communication and collaboration across diverse geographies.

We can communicate much more efficiently across the company with Exchange Online,” said Denis Edwards, chief information officer for Manpower. “This is the first time we’ve used a global messaging application, and it has quickly become the cornerstone of our collaboration efforts.”

Tampa General Hospital, which serves a population of more than 4 million in the Tampa community is leveraging BPOS for better collaboration and improve its core healthcare business.

Illinois based healthcare provider Advocate Health Care has saved $4 million and improved communication by moving e-mail to the Cloud.

Shell will use Microsoft SharePoint Online and Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to enable global, online collaboration among employees. It also hopes to experience considerable cost reductions and flexibility through Microsoft SharePoint.

It’s great to see businesses, governments and schools of all sizes trust Microsoft to help them move to the cloud,” said Kurt DelBene, president of the Office Division at Microsoft. “With our cloud apps, people can work together more easily from virtually anywhere, across a range of devices. And unlike ‘pure cloud’ solutions, our online solutions for productivity work with what organizations already have, so they can transition to the cloud on their own terms.”

Available in 40 countries and regions, BPOS helps businesses increase productivity, tighten security and stay current with the latest technologies. The solution suite includes Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online, Microsoft Office Live Meeting and Microsoft Office Communications Online.
