After the city of Chicago and Tesco, yet another company decides to make the move to Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud-based productivity solution.

The Redmond-based technology giant announced in a press release that jcpenney would move its employees to Office 365 for collaboration and communication purposes.

“In selecting a cloud solution, we were looking for a partner who would support our goal of becoming America’s favorite store,” said Kristen Blum, chief technology officer, jcpenney.

“And when we realized that we could improve customer service even more by providing cloud-based collaboration tools to increase communication between team members, it was easy to choose Microsoft and Office 365.”

jcpenney is a US-based retailer with more than 1,000 stores in all 50 states and headquartered in Plano, Texas. The company currently has several thousands of employees, so Microsoft’s Office 365 solution is expected to enhance collaboration between workers in different stores across the US.
