Reeves & Neylan are a chartered accountancy firm in Canterbury. They wanted to implement a company-wide intranet to link up 175 staff in five offices and help them find information more easily. The firm wanted to help its staff find information more easily. This meant routine things like policy documents and administrative information. It also meant information that could help staff to help their customers more effectively— such as client records, advice, and marketing literature.
Core built a new intranet system using Microsoft SharePoint. The new intranet has become everyone’s homepage and includes company news, details of marketing activity and links to accountant-friendly sites like the Inland Revenue. The main benefit from the new intranet is the search facility, which allows all employees to easily find the information they need to do their jobs.
Reeves and Neylan were delighted with their new SharePoint system and refer to it as the ‘Guru’. Staff can now work more efficiently as they can find documents quicker therefore saving them time. Historically, forms and documents were spread over hundreds of shared folders in Microsoft Office Outlook. All relevant documents are owned and tagged and have review dates so that they are kept up to date.
