Press Release

Fuze, the leading cloud-based communications solution for the modern global enterprise, has been selected by The NHST Media Group, Norway’s leading B2B publishing house, to deliver an organisation-wide communications platform as part of a new digital transformation strategy. The Fuze solution will power voice and collaboration for the news provider’s team of journalists and employees working across eight global offices.

The Fuze Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) platform will give NHST real-time, seamless communication to simplify and improve the quality of service for the sales team and journalists, who depend on reliable communication to secure breaking stories in today’s competitive digital media landscape.

Fuze will also allow NHST’s dispersed editorial team to collaborate on breaking news and feature stories for its business, financial and trade publications, which include Intrafish Media, Tradewinds, Upstream and Recharge.

Phase one of the Fuze roll-out will see offices across Seattle, Houston, Stamford, New Orleans, London, Bristol, Singapore and Hong Kong move from individual, on-premises PBX systems to Fuze’s fully-featured UCaaS offering. The solution will deliver an immediate saving on call costs of up to 30 percent and bring predictable costs for budgeting through fixed monthly pricing and a single global invoice.

“Deploying Fuze is a critical part of our broader strategy for digital transformation,” explains Svenn Larsen, IT Manager, NHST Media Group. “While many strategies do focus on IT, too often communication infrastructures are ignored and remain stuck in the past. Effective communication and collaboration is the lifeblood of our organisation, driving the delivery of news and information that keeps us ahead of the competition.”

"Today’s enterprises need a communications platform with the simplicity and flexibility to allow employees to work the way they want to. Fuze offers a communications approach that reflects the strategic requirements of a digital transformation initiative, with intuitive applications and features, but at a fraction of the cost of purchasing and maintaining on-premises systems,” added Kris Wood, VP EMEA, Fuze.
