International company averda says Office 365, Yammer bring employees on two continents closer together

In a guest post on the Office Blogs, Anthony Kurban, chief information officer of averda, the largest environmental solutions provider in the Middle East and North Africa, writes that before moving to Office 365 and Yammer, the company’s servers were stored on site in one country. It was something that didn’t suit a growing company that has plans to be in 50 cities within 10 years, he says.

Averda works with businesses and governments of all sizes to collect, recycle, compost and dispose of waste. Not only has Office 365 made it possible for averda’s employees to be more productive no matter where they are working, Yammer has proven invaluable as well, he writes.

Yammer has helped “break down the barriers among employees working in different countries, departments and teams. If employees have a question, they have potentially the whole organization to answer.”

Kuban calls Yammer is a fantastic knowledge-sharing tool. “Employees are talking, collaborating, commenting, liking, and praising each other like we have never seen before.”
