How Chrome Browser helped LafargeHolcim stay productive during a merger


Merging two of the world’s largest cement manufacturers, Lafarge and Holcim, also meant merging both of their massive IT systems. To ensure business continuity while integrating these two halves together to make one cohesive whole, LafargeHolcim turned to Chrome Browser to help make it happen instantly and seamlessly.

Provided a cohesive web experience for users while moving to new systems.

Undisrupted access to cloud and web apps.

Easier IT management through a single browser.

Prior to the big merger, both companies migrated to Chrome Browser to prepare. This made the entire process faster and more cost effective. Google’s Admin console made it easy for their IT department to manage browser policies and settings from one easy-to-use platform. Now LafargeHolcim is able to help their employees innovate together on the go and in the cloud.

The combination of Chrome Browser and Android devices has saved the company thousands of dollars every year.
