ZF Friedrichshafen Selects Beezy to Build Next-Generation Intranet
German car part manufacturer ZF Friedrichshafen AG selects the award-winning Beezy solution to develop their Next Generation Intranet platform on Microsoft Office 365, leveraging Beezy’s extended enterprise collaboration and communication capabilities on a global scale.
Beezy Inc., the Intelligent Workplace for Office 365 and SharePoint, is pleased to announce that ZF Friedrichshafen, a global leader in driveline and chassis technology as well as active and passive safety technology, has selected Beezy to design and build the Next Generation Intranet (NGI) for their workforce of around 135,000 with approximately 230 locations in some 40 countries.
Beezy fits great into our future cloud environment for enterprise collaboration. It seamlessly integrates into our Microsoft environment, which reduces our need for extensive interfaces to a minimum.
“We are excited to help ZF build their Next Generation Intranet,” stated Ritse Klink, Chief Operating Officer at Beezy. “Our team — which includes our partners — are the best in delivering digital transformation on the Microsoft platform. That’s why we are confident this will be the start of a long and successful partnership.”
The award-winning Beezy solution extends and enhances Office 365 to meet the evolving needs of the Digital Workplace, with out-of-the-box capabilities giving users a more contextual, personalized, and intelligent environment beyond what SharePoint and Office 365 can provide alone.
After a thorough evaluation of the leading collaboration software solutions, ZF Friedrichshafen selected Beezy as most capable of helping the company increase efficiency, agility, and flexibility at a global scale, while also fostering a transparent and open culture.
“Beezy fits great into our future cloud environment for enterprise collaboration. It seamlessly integrates into our Microsoft environment, which reduces our need for extensive interfaces to a minimum,” shared Eva Lämmle, project lead at ZF, responsible for the IT stream of the project.
Daniel Pfeiffer, responsible for the functional part of the project, added: “We believe that usability and simplicity are crucial for the success of a modern platform for internal communication and collaboration. The great overall user experience of Beezy will make it easy for our employees to adopt the new platform, and to make it part of their daily work life.“
ZF Friedrichshafen and Beezy have completed the conception phase, and have moved into the execution phase, with plans to soft-launch the Next Generation Intranet in 2017.
