The story

While Pernod Ricard’s main base may be in continental Europe, it also operates out of its US headquarters in New York, New York. With an entire ocean separating these key locations, maintaining communication is essential. This is even more true with the onset of COVID-19, as more workers are forced to work remote.

Microsoft Teams provides a secure, cloud-based collaboration platform that can prove indispensable during a pandemic such as this. Though Teams would be useful enough as is, Pernod Ricard needed it to be able to connect to its existing phone system, one already being used by 20,000 users. Fortunately for Pernod Ricard, it soon became clear that Teams was more than capable of meeting these analog requirements.
