Business Objective

MPC Kinetic first approached SOCO as they had an existing DMS and Intranet built on SharePoint 2010 technology – but this system had not been well received.

MPC Kinetic were keen to leverage their existing investment in Office 365, and looking to migrate their Intranet and DMS capability to SharePoint Online. As such, MPC Kinetic engaged SOCO for a 12-week “Kickstart” project – delivered using an Agile delivery model.

Subsequent to project completion, MPK engaged SOCO to perform a Managed SharePoint and Office 365 Support Service, which includes elements of onsite support, and periodic user training sessions.

Requirements

In particular, the following issues were illustrative of the frustrations users expressed when using the current system:

  • Not intuitive or user friendly
  • No ranking with search, and too many results returned (difficult to find documents)
  • There is no process for rolling our new project or team sites
  • The current system has a heavy support footprint
SOCO Solution
  • Home page creation and landing page templates (including custom branding)
  • Project and team site templates, and provisioning framework
  • Migration of several thousand documents, including population of metadata
  • Configuration of search to provide easy discovery of documents
  • An end user help site documenting the custom features of the Intranet and DMS
  • SharePoint Information Architecture & Security Schema
  • Document Library setup, co-authoring, and version control
  • Policies and Procedures workflows (for controlled documents)
Outcome

SOCO delivered a modern, fresh Intranet and Document Management system for use by MPC Kinetic’s mobile workforce of more than 1000 employees.

The project was delivered on time, and on budget – whilst delivering all the documented requirements.
