Microsoft wins GE contract, 300,000 employees get Office 365

GE looks to bolster employee productivity and collaboration.

By Ellie Burns

Microsoft’s cloud productivity suite, Office 365, will be delivered to General Electric’s 300,000 employees across 170 countries worldwide.

The decision to go with Office 365 was made due to its comprehensive and integrated set of productivity capabilities including email, Skype for Business calling and meetings, real-time document co-authoring, and team collaboration.

GE was also won over by Office 365’s ability to enhance the capabilities of critical line-of-business applications by connecting to Office 365 through open APIs. The security capabilities were also key in GE’s agreement with Microsoft.

"As we deepen our investments in employee productivity, Microsoft’s innovative approach to collaboration made Office 365 our first choice for providing scalable productivity tools to our employees worldwide," said Jamie Miller, senior vice president and CIO of GE.

"Microsoft and GE share many values in common — openness, transparency, data-driven intelligence and innovation — all of which are driving forces behind Microsoft’s own mission to help people and organizations achieve more," said John Case, corporate vice president of Microsoft Office.

"As one of the most innovative companies in the world, GE understands what it takes to unleash the potential of its employees. We’re delighted GE has selected Office 365 as the productivity and collaboration solution to empower its global workforce."
