ABZ Trusts in the UMB Cloud

30.01.2018

The Allgemeine Baugenossenschaft Zurich (ABZ) currently provides housing for more than 11,000 people in the city of Zurich. In recent years, ABZ has already utilized UMB managed services; now, as part of a lifecycle project, ABZ has initiated the move into the cloud and asked for proposals on the project. The winning bid came from UMB, again prevailing against strong competition.

Established in 1916, ABZ today employs approximately 90 employees at five locations in the city of Zurich. Its objectives include the provision of well-kept housing through all stages of life, at affordable rents. One hundred years after its creation, ABZ has decided to choose the cloud, with central data storage in Switzerland, as well as, once more, UMB. UMB reassures with great service offerings, competent personnel, and a winning corporate culture.

Microsoft Office 365 and unified communications: interacting on a higher level.

Changing into the hybrid UMB cloud has enabled employees to take advantage of Microsoft Office 365, among other things. Communication has been raised to a higher level by introducing unified communications based on Microsoft Skype for Business. Employees at all five locations are better connected now and the solution opens new possibilities for interaction.

UMB is also offering strategic assistance for ABZ. Hans Rupp, ABZ CEO explains: «UMB has not only created a powerful hybrid cloud solution but is also a competent partner and adviser on issues relating to digitization and transformation.»
