Since JC Jacobsen founded the Carlsberg brewery more than 160 years ago to serve the Danish market, it’s grown tremendously – especially within the past 14 years – and with Microsoft’s help, the company manages their operations around the world from a central base. The Carlsberg Group introduced a vision for business it calls “GloCal,” which aims for global efficiency while staying true to its local roots. The company chose Microsoft Office 365 to implement a complete productivity and collaboration solution that its more than 20,000 employees can use to connect with each other and streamline its global supply chain.
Employees use Microsoft Exchange Online for email and calendaring; Microsoft Lync Online to connect via Web conferencing and instant messaging; virtual teams are collaborating on projects using Microsoft SharePoint Online; and employees are adopting the Yammer Enterprise social networking platform for messaging and collaboration.
The company has expanded from a local production base of just six markets in 2000 to become the fourth largest brewer of beer in the world with a roster of 500 different brands.
