MHI Vestas Offshore Wind is the world’s leading manufacturer of offshore wind turbines. With over 3,000 employees across Europe, the US and Asia Pacific region, the company is a global leader in the renewable energy sector.
Consideration for the environment is a fundamental part of the MHI Vestas Offshore Wind business concept. One highly effective way for any organization to reduce its carbon footprint is to leverage video collaboration technology as a replacement for non-essential business travel.
With employees and customers in so many physical locations, the ability to meet face-to-face anytime without hopping on an airplane saves time and money while still providing the ability to advance economic growth and commerce. In the era of the coronavirus pandemic, video meetings also provide a safe, responsible and stress-free way to enhance relationships and increase productivity.
As a leader in renewable energy with a strong commitment to corporate social responsibility, MHI Vestas Offshore Wind wanted to reduce its carbon footprint by eliminating non-essential business travel. The company also recognized how video meetings enhance collaboration for geographically dispersed teams and customers. The coronavirus pandemic underscores this point with so many people working from home.
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind uses the Microsoft Teams video solution, so seamless integration with Teams was essential.
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind selected Logitech Room Solutions for Microsoft Teams based on guidance from telecoms equipment supplier, go2telecom, and their own first-hand experience with trials at a Logitech demo location. The solutions—which included Logitech Rally Plus, Logitech MeetUp and the Logitech Tap controller—were selected for their seamless operability with Microsoft Teams and simple, intuitive user interface. To easily manage all the devices remotely, MHI Vestas Offshore utilized the easy to deploy Logitech Sync to tie off a holistic room solution portfolio.
“For MHI Vestas, the key requirement was that the system was easy to use and worked out the box with Microsoft Teams. After trialling the solutions at Logitech’s demo station and in MHI Vestas’ offices, we were confident that MeetUp, Rally and Tap were the right options for ensuring the consistent room experience MHI Vestas needed. Throughout the process, Logitech offered us great support and consultation.”

MHI Vestas Offshore Wind employees have embraced video meetings as a better alternative to the costs, time, and inconvenience of non-essential travel. User adoption has been so enthusiastic that over 32,000 meetings were scheduled by employees in the first three months of rolling out Logitech Room Solutions for Microsoft Teams. The initial deployment of 16 rooms was quickly expanded to 50, with plans to equip all meeting rooms of every size globally by the end of next year.
