Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines Moves to the Cloud With Microsoft Office 365

In line with its commitment to generate economic and social value for all its stakeholders, Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines has moved to the cloud with Microsoft’s Office 365 for Business as a strategic direction to communicate and engage with its partners, employees, and customers. With Office 365’s top-of-line benefits such as collaboration, familiarity and mobility, the beverage manufacturer enables increased productivity in the workplace.

Office 365 delivers the optimal benefits of the cloud – productivity, familiarity, social, collaboration and control. It powers organizations to have the flexibility of running their applications on the cloud without the need for physical servers. This means that they can attain productivity wherever, whenever and whichever device they use.

Office 365 delivers the collaborative power of the web and familiar productivity tools that customers prefer across multiple devices. No other service can beat this familiarity on such tools whether it’s PowerPoint, Excel, Word, Lync, SharePoint or OneNote. Among its many other features, Office 365 is also social. With its integrated platforms such as Yammer, an enterprise social networking tool, Office 365 gives organizations a platform for productivity, communications, and collaborations without discounting security management.

“Microsoft Philippines is driven by its commitment to help organizations develop strategy for their business through class-leading innovations,” said Karrie Ilagan, Managing Director of Microsoft Philippines. “Office 365 offers the no compromise productivity experience for the modern workplace. I am proud to say it is the most complete cloud service to-date with new features and enhanced enterprise social capabilities tailored to the needs and budgets of small, medium and large organizations.”

With regards to its day-to-day operations, Coca-Cola FEMSA sees three benefits to Office 365, namely collaboration, familiarity, and mobility.

For example, Microsoft Lync facilitates ease of communication and allows Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines employees to share files without difficulty during video conference calls. Also, they are able to access important files at any given time through a variety of hand held devices. All of these have led to increased productivity which is essential for Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines to continue to deliver value to its customers.

“To power the organization and deliver our products to more Filipinos, we need the most up-to-date business tools such as Office 365,” said Juan Dominguez, Corporate Affairs Director for Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines. “Our partnership with Microsoft signifies our high regard for the cloud in deploying a whole new level of technological strategy for Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines,” he added.
