Friesland College wanted to create an easy-to-use student portal accessible through mobile and tablet. They wanted to make it easier for students and teachers to communicate so that they can experience Instant personalized information for each student and a more connected campus.
Sogeti created the Digital Workplace in four different interactive workshops with the customer in an agile way. They demonstrated how the different components of the Digital Workplace would look like with WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) Sogeti Smart Workspace Manager, because no custom development was required. During and after the workshops Sogeti helped to deploy the functionality to the SharePoint Online (O365) Test Environment of the customer using remote provisioning. Sogeti also implemented the business productivity suite using the Powell 365 solution. Sogeti helped with a solution that provided Friesland College with a standardized platform that seamlessly brings together the productivity features of O365 due to the user-friendly and intuitive UI.
By implementing Sogeti SMART Workspace, Friesland college enormously impact the usage adoption with averages of 60% i.e. increase in business productivity. By using the Powell 365 solution in the Smart Workspace they shortened the implementation time by 3 times.
Friesland College also experienced the needed results within 70% of the budget. In a business perspective, the complete user experience led to significant efficiency gains by pushing O365 adoption. On average, Friesland College noticed O365 usage jump from 10% to 90%, one month after implementation.
