Custom Project Management Application for Consulting Firm
How Aciron does it
A research and consulting firm that specializes in environmental topics had implemented Microsoft SharePoint as its intranet. Overall, the firm was configuring the platform to make a project management system. This firm was looking for SharePoint consulting.
As a result, they were looking to leverage SharePoint for its project management needs. In other words, the firm engaged Aciron to provide SharePoint consulting services. However, they were hoping to improve the efficiency of project management processes. Aciron would develop a custom project management system while leveraging the client’s SharePoint platform.
Aciron performed a requirements gathering session in order to define the client’s strategic direction. Further, Aciron conducted a series of requirements-gathering interviews with key stakeholders. Similarly, this let us understand their project management processes and pain points. In addition, Aciron gathered technical requirements for the new system. Furthermore, Aciron performed a thorough assessment of the firm’s existing SharePoint intranet. This allowed us to examine how to best configure and customize the system.
So, Aciron designed storyboards and process flow diagrams. In addition we regularly reviewed business documentation with the client. Then, we incorporated feedback throughout the process.
In short, Aciron followed an flexible approach to the development of the system. Thus, allowing the client to regularly review, provide feedback, and make adjustments. By engaging key stakeholders, the client had visibility into the project progress. In the end, we delivered a scalable, end-to-end system that met all of the client’s needs.
Most importantly, Aciron customized the firm’s existing SharePoint infrastructure. As a result, we developed a custom management system tailored to the client. In conclusion, the project management solution allows the client to manage projects.
This includes the initiation phase, planning, execution, and project closure. The intuitive system includes: comprehensive opportunity tracking, contact management, project and resource planning, task planning and management, and reporting functionality.
In addition, Aciron assisted the client in migrating its existing sales, project, and other data to the new system. The integrated custom system has enhanced visibility into projects, increased collaboration among team members, optimized resource planning, and improved decision-making.
Therefore, the company has realized high user-adoption and user engagement with the new SharePoint solution.
