Creating a Collaborative Culture
Jebsen relies on productivity-boosting technology solutions from Lenovo to create a more efficient work environment.
Jebsen supports clients in brand building, marketing, investment, imports and logistics, sales and distribution, servicing a wide network of wholesalers, retailers and consumers.
A longtime partner of Lenovo, Jebsen has deployed Lenovo’s products for the past two decades. The company currently uses a full portfolio of Lenovo products – from ThinkPad laptops, ThinkCentre Tiny-in-One desktops, workstations and monitors to server and storage solutions. Jebsen’s requirements range from entry-level models to high-end devices as the company expands in key markets.
Lenovo was tasked with devising a simple solution to meet Jebsen’s varying business needs for a diverse group of users, including employees, product distributors and customers.
"It has always been my priority to provide a technology solution that contributes towards a more efficient work environment,” said Brian Chan, Information Technology Director at the Jebsen Group. “Jebsen sees technology as an underlying necessity for all of its employees, enabling them to conduct business activities seamlessly. A smart office setup, good battery life and device standardization together increase work productivity, and therefore are of particular concern.”
On the customer-facing side, Jebsen has recently set up various pop-up stores and requires POS devices to support retail sales.
Jebsen has adopted various Lenovo products with professional IT advice to create a great user experience with internal office usage, in particular the high-performance CPUs and the long battery life of Lenovo products that enable users to perform day-to-day tasks more efficiently.
"Lenovo is well-known for reliable products that are good value for money. With that in mind, we have continued partnering with Lenovo to provide technology solutions for our employees, partners and customers,” said Brian.
In the near future, Jebsen is excited to adopt a portable battery from Lenovo that can charge laptops to enhance workspace mobility. With the growing trend for minimal workspaces, Lenovo has introduced the USB Type-C which can power up with only one cable instead of a cluster of messy cables.
The standardization of technology solutions increases work productivity and is applicable across different regional offices. From better server connections, down to hardware improvements such as battery chargers and adapters that are compatible with all Lenovo commercial laptop models, Jebsen relies on productivity-boosting technology solutions from Lenovo.
With consistent device standardization, cross-team communications and compatible document, IT support has subsequently been easier to manage. In addition, brainstorming sessions have initiated skill-sharing to develop out-of-the-box ideas for projects. Hardware support from Lenovo is responsible for sustaining consistency of all hardware with the same brand. Lenovo can always revert fast with solutions and work with Jebsen to improve the customer journey. Thanks to reliable solutions from Lenovo the company has experienced significant efficiency gains.
The Way Forward
