Racing to the Top

Bell Racing USA wanted to focus on strategic projects and work more proactively to improve processes and technologies. As a result, Bell Racing chose Office 365. By providing easy access to productivity tools, enhanced security, and reliability through Office 365, Bell Racing is able to foster collaboration and improve business processes.

A licensee of Bell Helmets, Bell Racing is the world's leading auto racing and karting helmet company. More drivers in all forms of racing have worn Bell Helmets than any other brand. The Bell name is synonymous with innovation, technology, engineering excellence, and superior helmet performance. Bell designs and develops innovative, technically superior auto racing helmets and accessories that maximize protection and enhance driver performance.

Bell Racing selected MCS to facilitate their transition to Office 365. MCS engineers successfully migrated their previous email data from their on-premises environment to Office 365. Additionally, MCS set up password sync with Bell Racing's local Active Directory, simplifying processes for employees. By using Office 365, Bell Racing employees can collaborate more efficiently. They can use the capabilities of Skype for Business, such as presence, IM, and desktop sharing, to connect and share information internally and with partners.

MCS upgraded all of Bell Racing's computers to Microsoft Office 2016, as part of the Office 365 plan selected by Bell Racing. Because Office 365 provides Office licenses for up to five devices, employees were able to deploy Microsoft Office on their personal computers and tablets at home. MCS assisted setting up Bell Racing employees' personal smartphones to access their corporate email accounts. Additionally, Bell Racing was interested in Windows 10, and many of their devices were upgraded to Windows 10 as a part of this project.

In selecting MCS, Bell Racing President & CEO Kyle Kietzmann noted MCS' technical qualifications:

"By utilizing MCS as our exclusive IT provider at our Champaign, Illinois location, Bell Racing is able to leverage their expertise to deploy leading-edge technology, enhance productivity and help us better serve our clients."

By adopting Office 365, Bell Racing can provide employees with the latest communications and collaboration capabilities, which they use to continue their pursuit of racing helmet perfection.
