New Belgium Brewing is the third-largest craft brewery in the United States. Founded in Fort Collins, Colorado in 1991, today the brewery produces 29 varieties of beer and distributes its product across 26 states. About one-third of the company’s nearly 400 employees work at remote locations, so New Belgium deployed a Microsoft Unified Communications solution to help employees stay in contact with colleagues, distributors and other business partners. The brewery embraces leading-edge technology and it wants to ensure that employees have the latest capabilities without sacrificing reliable, available service. Recently, New Belgium evaluated the cloud-based messaging service in Microsoft Office 365 to understand how a hosted email solution could complement its on-premises unified communications solution and help it to reduce costs and administration.
