Milan-listed cable maker Prysmian has announced a partnership with Microsoft to introduce smart working for its 21,000 employees in 50 countries. The cloud-based digital transformation project has been launched to coincide with Prysmian’s move to its new Milan Bicocca headquarters, which have been designed using smart working principles. Prysmian said all PC desktops have been eliminated and employees given mobile devices, including 2-in-1 Microsoft Surface convertible laptops, to provide more immediate and faster access to the company’s tools and information resources.

The company is also adopting Office 365 and Windows 10, while implementing Yammer as a business social network to facilitate the sharing of useful content and collaboration. Finally, Microsoft’s Skype for Business has been set up as the group's main videoconferencing tool.
