Bucher Emhart Glass
The world’s leading supplier of equipment, controls and parts to the glass container industry, Bucher Emhart Glass has been at the forefront of innovation in glass manufacturing for more than a century. Headquartered in Steinhausen, Switzerland, the company employs more than 1,800 people worldwide, and equips production lines responsible for almost 40 percent of the world’s total glass bottle output.
To continue delivering high-quality customer support, Bucher Emhart Glass wanted to empower retiring employees to share their deep expertise with newer members of the business—but how?
Bucher Emhart Glass implemented a social approach to knowledge management based on IBM® Connections™—enabling experienced employees to share best practices via forums, blogs, wikis and more.
Today, Bucher Emhart Glass uses a business social network to capture and share best practices across the enterprise—enabling it to maintain an exceptional standard of customer support.
