Endress+Hauser’s Successful Journey towards a Digital Workplace with innobit & Powell 365


A Swiss-based instrumentation and process automation company pushed the strategic initiative to modernize its internal communication with a new digital workplace. Looking to enhance productivity, improve collaboration and provide a fun experience for employees, Endress+Hauser decided to embark on the journey towards a digital workplace by introducing new communications methods and adding the central element, a collaboration platform, all based on a range of Microsoft products.

Endress+Hauser chose to work with the powerful range of Microsoft Technology and the expertise of Microsoft Gold Partner innobit to tailor a solution that inspires employee efficiency and provides an interactive and engaging experience. A known expert of Collaboration & Content and Cloud technology, innobit worked with Endress+Hauser to define a clear intranet strategy and select and implement the best technology for their needs.

Through a series of workshops, led by innobit, Endress+Hauser was able to outline the project vision, understand local needs and select Powell 365 as the framework behind the new collaboration platform. This is the story of how Endress+Hauser successfully realized their journey towards a Digital Workplace and revamped the way their employees work together internationally.
