Panasonic is one of the largest product manufacturers in the world, comprised of 473 companies and employing over 260,000 people. They also own one of the world’s largest patent portfolios. And while some may still think of them merely as a consumer electronics company, they are a global provider of comprehensive solutions for businesses as well as consumers — solutions for your home, your work and when you travel.
Panasonic was using Salesforce with SpringCM for contract management and wanted to move to using SharePoint online. They were looking for a solution specific to SharePoint online and Office 365 (not other products like Box, Dropbox, etc). They found Trove on the AppExchange and needed some critical customizations to enable key workflows.
Panasonic leveraged a free product from ThreeWill called Trove. The product worked well out of the box, but they needed a couple of customizations in order for it to work with their specific scenarios. We made those customizations at a reasonable cost. In addition to that, we helped migrate the content from SpringCM to SharePoint.
Panasonic was able to save the annual reoccurring cost of the SpringCM license fee. This easily justified the cost of the project and will provide future savings as well. They also now get all the enterprise content management features that are a part of SharePoint, improving collaboration on the contracts with groups within Panasonic.
