Air Canada has more than 27,000 employees, many of whom travel the skies frequently. "Given our industry, a large percentage of our employees are mobile. They're constantly on the move, and they rarely set foot in our headquarters," said Allen Chang, Manager, IT Innovations, Air Canada. "We're a large organization so we need to be able to reliably communicate with employees at all levels, no matter where they’re located. This can be difficult when our employees are spread out across 180-plus different locations worldwide."
