Dresser, Inc. is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of highly engineered equipment and services sold primarily to customers in the energy industry. The company's products include brand names like Waukesha® Engine that have been recognized in the industry for as long as a century. A private company headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Dresser has operations in more than 100 countries with approximately 6,500 employees.
The challenge: Supporting employee mobility and enhancing productivity
Collaboration is vital to Dresser's success. Employees from the company's headquarters and worldwide business units visit other Dresser facilities to work with teams and consultants on a regular basis. Even at their primary locations, employees are very mobile. At Waukesha Engine, for example, very few employees stay in one location all day: they take their laptops to conference rooms, test labs, and the training center as needed.
