India's First Planned Hill City Deploys Portal Solution to Empower Employees: Increases Collaboration and Efficiency
A prime offering from HCC, Lavasa is a level of city infrastructure yet to be experienced in India, thus setting a new benchmark in planning, construction and service delivery. Like most new organizations, Lavasa did not have any existing application to take care of internal workflow management, employee self service or internal communications. Poor integration resulted in lack of updated real time information to respond to queries thus reducing productivity. The Lavasa management identified the need for an integrated intranet portal solution. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 is an integrated suite of server capabilities that can help improve organizational effectiveness by providing comprehensive content management and enterprise search, accelerating shared business processes, and facilitating information-sharing across boundaries for better business insight. Additionally, this collaboration and content management server provides IT professionals and developers with the platform and tools they need for server administration, application extensibility, and interoperability. Lavasa chose to work with Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Wipro to develop its portal solution. With SharePoint Server 2007 in place, Lavasa is building a new culture based on real-time sharing of information and integration. Employees have access to countless resources, and critical information. Paper consumption is reduced. As data is migrated to a central repository from disparate applications, the scope of errors or inaccuracies is also eliminated. Even data integrity is assured.
