Drinks specialist Distell gets flexible with video

Global drinks specialist Distell is pivoting towards a more flexible way of working, with StarLeaf video meetings and excellent support.

Distell produces and markets alcoholic beverages across the world, so connecting regional locations and partners with their base in South Africa has always been a priority.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Distell used video to help employees communicate safely within locations too. It’s been a success, and Russell Petersen, ICT Infrastructure Manager, says it’s opening the door to more flexible working in the future.

StarLeaf support takes the burden off Distell’s IT teams, which is critical when there’s so much disruption across all areas of the business. In particular:

‘StarLeaf is simple to deploy, easy to use and it works well. It’s as simple as that.’
Russell Petersen, ICT Infrastructure Manager.
