Helping a Media Company Implement Project Management via SharePoint
The client’s goals were to improve efficiency and increase teamwork throughout the product development process. The client expressed desire to manage the process in-house once the mapping process was completed. As a result, the client asked Aciron to provide training and support services to the firm. This training would enable the firm to internally manage the customized platform and eventually utilize it to its fullest potential.
First, Aciron conducted on-site requirements validation sessions with key project stakeholders. During these sessions both parties discussed, analyzed, and documented the requirements for the Microsoft SharePoint Online system.
Secondly, Aciron developed storyboard and process flow diagrams based on the results of the requirement validation stage. These documents provided the layout and functionality of the system. In other words, the client saw how the system would look and function. In addition, the client was able to provide feedback to make any changes before the development stage. Furthermore, this process ensured both parties that the customized SharePoint platform would meet the client's business needs.
Following an agile development approach, Aciron moved on to the configuration, customization, and implementation of the Microsoft SharePoint Online system. Once installed, Aciron conducted on-site Sharepoint training sessions for relevant client users. Thus, ensuring end users possessed the knowledge and skills to successfully utilize the customized platform.
The user-friendly platform includes updated features, functionality and customization. For example, these features allow the client to better manage the process. Moreover, it increased efficiency and timeliness of project completion.
The SharePoint Online platform, among its robust capabilities, included the following features:
Dynamic project tracking throughout project life-cycle from origin to end
Comprehensive document management features with the capability to upload, edit, and view document status in one secure location
Robust project management dashboard
Milestone tracking feature to document a project’s status through memorable points in the product development process.
In conclusion, Aciron configured the user-friendly Microsoft SharePoint Online platform. Therefore, enabling the client to manage and track the status of projects within the internal product development process.
