Collaboration across time zones and cultures is an inevitable consequence of the growing globalization of business and communication. It is a boost for business as it allows managers to choose the best people for the job and benefit from their different viewpoints.

To help understand how technology can overcome these differences, Fons Trompenaars – one the best-known commentators on the area – hosted an Orange Business Services webinar on Friday, June 5th at 14:00-14:40 CET.

In this blog, Anthony Plewes whets your appetite for the webinar with a few scenarios that will illustrate how cultural differences can make collaboration a challenge, and how technology can help solve them.


Case studies:


For Ontex, a leading global producer of disposable personal hygiene solutions with headquarters in Belgium, Orange delivered a unified communications solution based on Business Together on the Microsoft Lync platform to support new working practices throughout Ontex’s global operations.


Ondeo IS, a leading player in the optimization and global management of the industrial water cycle, was able to increase communication and collaboration while cutting costs with Business VPN, Business Together as a Service, and on-demand communication and collaboration services from Orange Business Services.
