Thompson and Teams

One of the largest advertising and marketing firms in the world is also one of the oldest. In business since 1896, J. Walter Thompson is a “global marketing communications agency” based in New York. The J. Walter Thompson workforce is distributed across the globe, with employees working in different time zones and different lifestyles.

Like many global organizations, J. Walter Thompson faced the challenge of connecting workers in different parts of the world to produce great work for their clients. Meanwhile, their complex projects involve many components stretching across multiple departments. The company needed one tool for every employee, no matter what they do or where they work. It needed a way for its geographically dispersed teams to effortlessly collaborate, produce great work, and increase efficiency. The agency also needed its workforce to have access to the newest digital workplace technology.

In other words, they needed Microsoft.
