For the last four years, Jacobi Carbons have trusted Eitex to take care of their Office 365 system. With over 3000 dedicated, professional employees one of the main benefits of the system is Skype for Business.

Jacobi Carbons is one of the world’s largest activated carbon companies with manufacturing facilities and reactivation plants worldwide.


Every quarter Jacobi hold a meeting with over 200 people involved from around the world. The CEO presents to everyone during this meeting. Previously it was impossible to conduct these meetings without flying employees around the world at significant cost and time.

Eitex set up and demonstrated Skype for Business to Jacobi via their Office 365 subscription.

Skype for Business provides a complete online meeting solution with video, audio, and web conferencing, furthermore you can use any device of your choice.

Jacobi now conduct their quarterly meetings using Skype for Business. Skype enables you to connect for free. It also lets you add up to 250 people to online meetings. All they need is an internet connection or a phone.

Meetings are recorded and made available via SharePoint for later use.
