In the last few months, we have highlighted case studies showing how different industries, including telecom and manufacturing, benefit from Microsoft unified communications solutions. This month, we take a look at the government sector.

 

The Swiss Council for Accident Prevention was looking for a way to build on its existing infrastructure for improved operational efficiency and collaboration amongst its employees. The company deployed Office Communications Server 2007 to provide its staff with an integrated e-mail, conferencing, instant messaging and voice solution.
