Pernod-Ricard accelerates connecting its meeting rooms to Microsoft Teams with BlueJeans Gateway

Spirits and wine company Pernod-Ricard wanted to foster a more collaborative culture across its more than 96 production sites. As a major Microsoft user, it decided to use Microsoft Teams as its default communication and collaboration platform. But that led to a problem: how would it link its hundreds of existing meeting rooms and devices to Teams? Thankfully for Pernod-Ricard, BlueJeans had the solution.

Results

  • Now, its 19,000 employees can run Teams meetings using their current rooms and devices — and join with the touch of a button, eliminating delays and increasing productivity.
