Tata Elxsi, the embedded product design and professional services arm of the Tata Group, has adopted Microsoft's Unified Communication (UC) services for better collaboration among their employees.

Under Microsoft's UC bouquet of services, Tata Elxsi has deployed Office 365 E1 including Exchange Online, Lync Online, Sharepoint Online, and Office Professional Plus.

Deployment of UC services for Tata Elxsi was the need of the hour as better collaboration is a necessity in their global operations with an international customer base and a strong offshore services business model, said the company on Monday.

Currently, Office 365 products will serve 4000 users and the quantity can be scaled up in the future as the company expects robust enhancement in their headcount.

The new Unified Communication services give Tata Elxsi's employees the ability to communicate better with each other. This will support real time communication between employees, customers and partners enabling faster decision making and greater efficiency.

B S Lokeshwaran, Vice President - Information Technology, Tata Elxsi, said, "We wanted robust Unified Communication services which could enhance the communication among our employees based out of various parts of the world.

"Microsoft Office 365 catered to our requirements that are pivotal for our business in the long run. Our employees find these services very user friendly and it reduces the time and increases productivity manifold."

Ramkumar Pichai, General Manager - Microsoft Office Division, Microsoft India, said, "With Office 365, employees can work together more easily from anywhere on any device, while collaborating with others inside and outside the organization in a simple and highly secure manner."

Microsoft Office 365 is a commercial set of products plus services from Microsoft. It includes the Microsoft Office suite of desktop applications and hosted versions of Microsoft's Server products (including Exchange Server, SharePoint Server, and Lync Server), delivered and accessed over the Internet - in effect, the next version of Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS).
