Fortune1000 customer success

Akumina Inc., the world's leading software provider of digital
engagement solutions for the workplace, today announced that O-I has
successfully launched on their digital workplace software platform.
Based in Perrysburg, OH, O-I is the world's leading glass container
manufacturer with more than a century of experience crafting pure,
sustainable, brand-building glass packaging for many of the world's
best-known food and beverage brands. The company had revenues of $6.9
billion in 2017 and employs more than 26,500 people at 78 plants in 23
countries. O-I delivers safe, sustainable, pure, iconic, brand-building
glass packaging to a growing global marketplace. They selected Akumina
and Microsoft's Office 365 enterprise cloud to enable its entire
workforce to do their jobs better, faster and easier.

"Akumina has changed the way that we communicate and collaborate with
our workforce" said Charles Krolak, O-I's Collaboration Services
Coordinator. "Communicating with our workforce through Akumina on their
devices and in their native language has been incredibly powerful for
our global business."

With the Akumina platform O-I can seamlessly manage multiple content
types in a unified branded experience, empower internal communication to
deliver localized messaging targeted to specific audiences, democratize
the creation of content and deliver a localized experience to each of
their global geographies.

O-I's successful launch comes on the heels of Akumina being named a Top
10 Startup in the State of New Hampshire by The Tech Tribune. Akumina
was selected after a review of the company's revenue potential,
leadership team and brand traction in the market. Akumina has been on a
roll recently with having announced record-breaking sales and revenue
growth for the quarter ending June 30th and a successful
capital raise including a strategic investment by Accenture Ventures and
Avanade.

"The successful launch of O-I's digital workplace and being named one of
New Hampshire's best startups is both exciting and humbling" said David
Maffei, Akumina's President. "The team at O-I has an incredibly strong
vision of where they want to go as it relates to creating an immersive
employee experience for their workforce. This launch is just the
beginning of O-I's digital transformation journey and we, at Akumina,
are excited to be at the heart of it."
