What is the best way to organize collaboration in a digital workplace for a global corporation? For the medical and pharmaceutical company B. Braun Melsungen AG, Arvato Systems implemented an intelligent collaboration and communication solution based on Microsoft Office 365 and NAVOO®.

Project Overview

Initial Situation

As part of a realignment of its IT strategy in 2017, B. Braun required the development of a Digital Workplace to help its employees collaborate across the 64 countries in which they work. The goal was to set up an intuitive and digital workplace that can be used independently while keeping IT and administration costs as low as possible.


As a Digital Workplace for B. Braun, NAVOO® must…

  • Make it easy and efficient for the over 60,000 employees to communicate and collaborate.
  • Offer a central corporate communication platform that is adapted to the CI.
  • Ensure that the system is accepted quickly without the need for roll-out training sessions by being easy to configure and use.
  • Adapt and optimize the existing tools and processes seamlessly.

Arvato Systems was able to implement a Digital Workplace for over 60,000 B. Braun employees to help their global collaboration efforts within a very short space of time. By introducing Microsoft Office 365 and NAVOO®, the previous corporate communication platform was replaced, the number of applications was significantly reduced, the processes were optimized, and new standards were introduced in compliance with regional governance, compliance, and security requirements.


With NAVOO®, we have achieved our goal of ensuring efficient and secure global collaboration for B. Braun employees with just one innovative solution. The satisfaction of our employees in their daily teamwork speaks for the success of the project.
