Microsoft has a community of over 2,500 analysts who it relies on to provide industry data to inform business decisions. Head Office felt its communication was stifled to this diverse network of individuals, whose only channel for information was the external Microsoft.com website. They needed a new way to keep this valuable community informed of the latest and curated news, updates, customer stories and events, while empowering them to gather knowledge, insights and ideas from the community. Unily has empowered Microsoft to deploy a secure communication and collaboration platform in a matter of weeks, saving time and precious resource in comparison to building a new portal from scratch.
The ARC portal is about more than supplying the Analyst community with relevant news and information, it is designed to derive insights and ideas while helping Analysts connect with peers. The community directory allows analysts to search for peers refined by their specialist area, using further search functionality to filter by location, team or skill. Analysts are empowered to publish their own content using the intuitive content management system, adding to an accessible internal knowledge pool that was previously impossible. Social integration across the portal powered by Yammer allows analysts to comment and react to content that is published for example on the analysts' regular webinars. Microsoft customized the portal to include new capabilities including Question of the Week, Tips, Ambitions and an FAQ to encourage even more engagement across the portal.

With 44,000 employees from two distinct companies coming together, senior leadership knew they needed a new platform to deliver consistent communications and information to reassure and engage with employees at a time of great change. This new platform would not only help to bring the cultures together, but provide a one stop shop for every employee to access information to support their work.
In 2014, Pitney Bowes decided they needed to undergo a complete company re-brand. Stuck as to what the best way to communicate this change to their employees was, they came to Unily.
