Three-year contract offers unified communication service to connect 25,000 NXP employees
Orange Business Services said that it is offering key elements of NXP Semiconductors’s unified communication strategy, which the company says will enable NXP to improve multinational team collaboration and speed up workflow at a low cost of ownership and predictable cost per user.
Orange has migrated 15,000 users from a Microsoft Live Communication Server-based service to Managed Microsoft Office Communications Server (Release 2). Orange is also hosting the service and supporting it with ITIL standards-based service management.
Orange said that the service allows employees to gain access and control over their communications through a Microsoft client that offers presence, instant messaging and web conferencing services. Later on, audio and video conferencing along with voice services are expected to be integrated.
Louis Luijten, chief information officer of NXP, states: “Orange Business Services is unifying our communications, giving us an edge in our competitive market. On top of that, they are reducing our total cost of ownership. Orange has proven to be a trusted and reliable partner, which is why we took the decision to outsource the integration of this business critical service to them.”
