Fuze is a Slam Dunk for Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment Driving Digital Transformation

May 7, 2018

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2018--Fuze, the leading cloud-based communications platform provider for the modern global enterprise, was selected by Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment (BSE) to enhance its communications stack, improving call quality across the organization, and creating a more efficient, collaborative experience for BSE staff.

BSE develops and operates state-of-the-art venues, including Barclays Center, and NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, and manages premier sports franchises, including the Brooklyn Nets and its NBA G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, and the business operations of the New York Islanders.

Benefits provided to BSE by switching to Fuze, include automating administrative tasks that were previously performed manually, enabling all employees to improve productivity throughout the workday, freeing up time to focus on driving the business forward. Moving from a legacy-based infrastructure to a cloud-based solution also gives the entire organization the ability to communicate beyond traditional voice and email. Fuze’s modern group messaging allows teams to connect instantly, expedite information sharing, and create more productive conversations.

“Working with Fuze allows our staff to utilize one application for all of our communication needs,” said Victor Pereira, senior director of Information Technology, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. “We are thrilled about transitioning to a best-in-class communication and collaboration platform.”

“Any opportunity to find efficiencies in what were once considered remote corners of the business is welcomed, specifically if it impacts profit margins,” said Colin Doherty, CEO, Fuze. “CIOs and IT leaders will continue to become champions of digital transformation as they own this discovery process and help colleagues in sales and finance rethink how cloud-based solutions can generate tangible benefits. It’s all about creating a more modern enterprise communications experience, allowing people to communicate effectively, giving their buyers more exceptional customer service, and reducing costs across the board.”

According to Fuze research, 77 percent of IT leaders believe their departments have the ability to drive success for their business. What’s more, a similar percentage believe collaboration tools will be a necessity and 59 percent are treating the adoption of new communications platforms as a top priority.
