Our client a large Canadian financial institution needed a way to provide its large employee base with fast and accurate access to policy and procedure information. Among the challenges, policy information was stored in dispersed databases and workstations across the Enterprise, resulting in outdated and potentially inaccurate information being used by front-line staff. This affected customer service and increased back office costs through internal call centres answering questions, and re-work to correct mistakes. Employees also experienced difficulty finding the information they needed to do their work efficiently documents were often lengthy and had to be visually scanned to find the right page within.
The client turned to imason which already had a successful relationship and understanding of their business challenges to deliver a comprehensive evaluation and usability study that would lead to the design and implementation of the solution. Working closely with business and IT stakeholders, imason delivered PinPoint, a powerful platform for publishing and retrieving policy and procedure information: the solution displays results based on an employee’s business unit and allows policy content to be broken into discrete, interrelated fragments that are easily found and consumed by end users.
Technically the solution is underpinned by the SharePoint platform. It delivers the knowledge management, discovery, security, and compliance requirements that an Enterprise class policy and procedure system requires.
