Microsoft: Independence Blue Cross modernizes the workplace with Microsoft 365
Philadelphia-based health insurance company improves mobility and productivity while reducing costs with Microsoft 365
Early in my career I recall the days where I would drive to work and sit at my desk using my large CVT monitor and tower PC working on a new marketing plan for a seasonal campaign. I would then email the plan or fax to multiple people in different locations for a follow-up conference call a few days later. That type of workstyle is a distant memory and speed agility with an increasing need for real-time collaboration is critical to business agility and success. Today organizations across the globe are increasingly becoming more mobile, with more employees working from home or a remote location to accommodate a flexible workstyle. In fact, studies show employees are not at their desk 50-60 percent of the time.*
Over the past year Microsoft has been actively working with Independence Blue Cross (IBX), with headquarters in Philadelphia, which provides health insurance for more than 2.5 million people to help deliver a low cost yet highly productive solution for their mobile workforce
Challenged to support its increasingly mobile workforce and safeguard customers’ personal medical information, IBX worked with Microsoft Consulting Services to upgrade to Microsoft 365, which includes Windows 10 Enterprise, Office 365 ProPlus, and Enterprise Mobility & Security suite. So far, it has deployed 3,300 licenses on desktops across the company, the first step in upgrading its entire workforce.
One of the main drivers of moving to the Microsoft 365 suite of products was the native security and mobility functionality in Windows 10 and the collaboration capabilities in Office 365 ProPlus. IBX improved mobility and increased productivity for its employees all while reducing operational costs. And with Microsoft 365, IBX is able to modernize their workplace through managed services, empowering IBX with more creativity, security, and simplicity in their environment and for their employees, wherever they decide to work.
