As a multinational energy company, BHP Billiton has offices on four continents and operates around the clock. It is essential for the company to have access to exceptional conferencing capabilities and AV equipment to conduct business around the world.
Ford AV’s most recent collaboration with BHP took place in their 600,000 SF Houston campus where state-of-the-art AV technology was installed in 25 of the 30 floors that encompass their towering presence there. This major investment in effective communication has already paid off big time. Wireless screen casting presentation capabilities, 90” HD displays, dual-edge blended DLP projectors, HD PTZ cameras and integrated system control including touch-screen panels have connected the campus’s 385+ conference rooms and turned them into 11 simple room types that employees can quickly understand and utilize.
In addition, new AV technology in their “Exchange,” dining, fitness and multi-purpose engagement centers helps to increase employee productivity and improve office culture. Never one to step away from a challenge, BHP continues to stay ahead of the curve–and the competition–through smart investments in communication technology and employee performance. Certainly, this latest venture will go a long way in preparing BHP to take advantage of any sudden movements in an ever-changing international marketplace.
