A Good Ear for Innovation
Computacenter helps audio specialists Sennheiser implement modern collaboration infrastructure that inspires creative teamwork
To protect and expand its position as market-leading manufacturer of audio devices, Sennheiser needs to continuously develop new products. To enable its global project teams to work better together, it needed to improve collaboration capabilities.
Sennheiser has been manufacturing high-quality audio devices for a number of years. In order to further expand its position in the market and to provide more customer-oriented products, Sennheiser has established the Innovation Campus at its headquarters in Wedemark. Sennheiser’s objective: To enable international Sennheiser project teams to work better together by improving collaboration capabilities.
Following the opening of the Sennheiser Innovation Campus - the most modern innovation centre in the audio industry - at the beginning of 2015, the IT specialists
at Computacenter implemented an open and flexible infrastructure for the campus. Computacenter created an integrated, future-oriented and intuitive IT environment based on Microsoft Office 365 with Skype for Business and Outlook.
The concept developed by Sennheiser for the Innovation Campus offers open spaces for implementing projects. Users can log onto any workstation spontaneously to access the new IT environment, to optimise use of the space. This also allows the project team at Sennheiser to use the efficient multimedia system anywhere on site. The advanced technology speeds up communication, improves collaboration processes and ultimately creates optimal working conditions, enabling the team to focus on their work on new audio solutions.
Together with Computacenter, we developed solutions that have enabled us to improve collaboration and communication between our virtual teams.
