Impact

Replacement of three legacy systems by one system led to reduced operating costs, harmonized practices for 7500 users across Canada, USA, France and Mexico.

Business Challenge

With three existing legacy global document management systems (DMS) in place, our client was in need of a cohesive, integrated system in order to reduce operating costs and streamline business practices for users worldwide.

Our Approach

We engaged with various sites to identify document management practices including templates & workflows. We conducted workshops to align practices & identify change management activities such as organization changes, training, post go-live support activities.

Using harmonized practices, we worked with the development team to configure a single global solution that would meet the standards of the organization team. Using a series of demonstrations and communications we were able to develop a network of internal change agents who acted as Superusers to support our project. They ensured solution delivery by initiating steering committees and cross-functional teams.

Results Achieved

From inception to post go-live stabilization, the Brevitas team contributed to the project success as follows:

  • Conducted multiple workshops to integrate practices across North American and French Sites.
  • Increased stakeholder awareness of the project through product demonstration in high traffic areas, web broadcasts, posters, and media
  • Developed appropriate coverage of scenarios by working closely with business partners during the testing phase to best represent document management practices
  • Brevitas provided exhaustive training to key users and support personnel through online and classroom support, including the delivery of customized guides and aids
  • Over 200 000 documents were successfully migrated to an improved, integrated platform with superior performance

As a result of our project success, we continue to be a trusted partner to this valued client.
