CLEVELAND, and REDMOND, Wash. — Dec. 11, 2017 — Park Place Technologies Inc. (www.parkplacetechnologies.com), a global leader in datacenter third-party maintenance and support, and Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: “MSFT”) have announced they are planning to collaborate on driving digital transformation across Park Place Technologies’ global sales and service operations and rapidly accelerate its ability to deliver engineering services across the over 100 countries in which it operates.
Park Place plans to fully deploy Microsoft enterprise cloud services, including Dynamics 365 and Office 365, along with LinkedIn Sales Navigator, to enhance collaboration and productivity across its sales and service operations. With the ability to leverage data and insights from across its organization, Park Place will be better positioned to deliver optimal service and ultimately maximize uptime for its customers.
