When a global leader in forestry sought to adopt a more sustainable, innovation-driven approach, it was hampered by outdated technology that was fragmented. Needing to collaborate to drive innovation, the company sought help.
The customer engaged Accenture and Avanade to help guide and implement a global workspace project. The work was implemented on time, under budget and with minimal disruption in an aggressive 16-month timeframe, providing employees with a unified platform to collaborate and communicate more effectively and efficiently, and help them make its strategic vision a reality.
With more than 15,000 work stations, two customer-facing websites, one global and nearly 30 local robustly equipped intranet sites, communication tools and team sites, these forestry workers are much better connected. The new system is well-liked and well-used. Search, blog and discussion capabilities increase interaction, and a people directory helps locate experts. More robust e-mail and communication tools foster better collaboration.
