“ IBM Connections has been a great success for us, and I am convinced that in five to ten years everyone will have a similar solution. ”
Torben Gerlach, CFO, Vestergaard Company
Vestergaard Company A/S
Founded in 1962 and today headquartered Roskilde, Denmark, Vestergaard Company A/S manufactures, distributes and maintains ground-support solutions for aircraft de-icing, sanitation and water services. Employing more than 260 people across four countries, the company serves more than 40 countries and 200 airports worldwide.
Airline passengers stuck on the ground will vote with their feet and switch carrier. How could Vestergaard Company support airlines with faster, better de-icing to get airplanes up and away?
Vestergaard Company launched a social business network, enabling its engineers working around the world to share insights, opportunities and feature requests instantly.
Faster enterprise knowledge sharing, from ground staff to head-office, leads to slicker services, helping airlines cut ground time and reduce costs—and send happy passengers on their way on time.
