Kohler Co. embraces culture of agility and productivity with Microsoft 365
Global manufacturer Kohler had just begun implementing Microsoft 365 when the pandemic hit. With employees all over the world affected by new work-from-home mandates, the company turned to Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop (previously Windows Virtual Desktop). Kohler tailored its response to each country and addressed shortages of equipment by leveraging the Azure Virtual Desktop capabilities that enable employee-owned devices to connect to on-premises engineering systems as well as other work-critical resources. During the ramp up, some 600 devices a week were enrolled using Microsoft Endpoint Manager and Microsoft Intune, permitting a "bring your own device" approach while maintaining security standards.
