“When one of the world’s largest MS Gold Partners needed urgent help with SharePoint integration for a major internal initiative, as lead consultant I wanted to enlist the help of ThreeWill but was naturally mindful of bruised egos! Thankfully I needn’t had worried. To my surprise, ThreeWill’s good reputation proceeded them and the programme sponsor was already aware of their good name. I therefore had the pleasure of working with ThreeWill on mission critical work and appreciated their pleasant, professional and pragmatic approach. I have no hesitations in recommending ThreeWill to customers of any size, and always look forward to any opportunity of working with them again.”Amir Khodaparast, Global Lead, Enterprise 2.0 Wiki (for Cultural Change) programme – Logica http://www.logica.com

ADP needed to reduce overall collaboration platform costs and consolidate on a unified collaboration platform to serve the entire organization. They also needed to support an overall strategy to leverage Office 365 functions licensed by ADP while allowing the decommissioning of the current Jive instance and therefore eliminate Jive licensing costs. The migration will form the basis for a refreshed high-value collaboration tool that ADP users can leverage in their day-to-day work tasks to improve productivity.
We migrated select Jive Places and related content from the current ADP Jive instance to the ADP Office 365/SharePoint Online tenant, leveraging automated migration utilities and associated consulting. We prioritized and scheduled content migration to minimize the impact on end-user access for ongoing collaboration. This included working with ADP on an overall Communication, Change Management, and Adoption effort.

PR Newswire decided to standardize on SharePoint online in Office 365 as their internal collaboration platform. There was key content in Jive that needed to be maintained going forward on SharePoint in Office 365. Additionally, the Jive license was set to expire in 2 months so it was critical for the migration to be completed before the license expiration.
ThreeWill leveraged it’s Jive to SharePoint Migration Utilities and Agile Migration process to migrate critical Jive content to Office 365 before the expiration of the Jive licenses (project kick-off to migration completion was about 5 weeks).
PR Newswire was able to save the annual cost of the Jive license fee (over 200K) and was able to move to a new, consolidated collaboration platform in Office 365. All critical content from the Jive platform was preserved and is now available for continued collaboration on the Office 365 platform.
Global Consulting Services firm focused on services areas including customer experience, performance improvement, technology and digital and transformation.
Through consolidation and acquisitions there were many SharePoint based intranet portals and no consistent user experience or taxonomy. Searching for the best of breed content and knowledge leaders on specific services and industries was difficult. Additionally, the portals were not optimized for a mobile workforce.

- Simple and clean user interface with custom branding including support for mobile responsive.
- Cohesive navigation experience across all site collections that aligns with corporate taxonomy for service lines, industries, capabilities and office locations.

Finally, using the personalization features users are only pushed content that matters to them based on their preferences.
