Bringing teams together
Breaking down global barriers
Keeping employees informed and engaged is hard enough for small companies—it’s an even bigger challenge for global organizations. As an organization’s size increases, so does the importance of keeping employees on the same page. For Coca-Cola Enterprises, a best-in-class company intranet was critical to enabling its employees to collaborate on a global scale.
New intranet for a classic brand
Coca-Cola Enterprises is a producer, distributor, and marketer of Coca-Cola products. With offices distributed around the world, effective communication is business-critical.
To facilitate communication, it needed a brand-centric, global portal for employees to engage and share multimedia information—whether across the office or the globe. The requirements:
A secure location for housing thousands of documents and videos
Multilingual capabilities and access for remote workers via kiosk
A world-class portal that would free the company from its current system and server maintenance headaches
Built together from the ground up
In partnership with Microsoft Consulting Services, our portals team shared strategic insight on Microsoft SharePoint and cloud hosting. We helped deliver the core technical development and performance testing for the project and built a rich, interactive site for Coca-Cola Enterprises that aligns with SharePoint best practices.
The ability to host shared assemblies, advanced search, video on demand, and social networking
Scalability, based on advanced load and performance testing, to ensure the site can accommodate thousands of concurrent users
Seamless transition to cloud hosting in the Microsoft Service Organization data center
Successful sharing worldwide
Its new employee portal successfully created a global collaborative environment for Coca-Cola Enterprises. The SharePoint solution combined out-of-the-box functionality with custom development to provide a robust internal communication platform. The result? Thousands of communications, articles, and videos are instantly accessible across the company’s global network. The site has improved employee productivity, thanks to intuitive usability and navigation, powerful search, and detailed metrics.
