Lazer Spot Uses Azure to Improve the Driver Observation Process

Lazer Spot Uses Azure to Improve the Driver Observation Process

Client Profile

Lazer Spot is the industry leader in third-party yard management services. Spotting and local shuttles are their core business.

Situation

Improve the Driver Observations update process and file structure capabilities.

Solution

We were able to accomplish this by completing the following User Stories:

  • Migrate all data for observations to Azure tablestorage (Design/POC)
  • Implement migrating all data for observations to Azure tablestorage
  • Create a new Flow workflow that is triggered off of a new Observation.
  • Updates the existing dashboard code to use the new backend table storage.
  • Modify the existing Nintex equipment attachment workflow to copy the attached inspection form to the fleet sites associated truck folder
  • Have a truck folder structure provisioning in the fleet site, which includes creating when needed the truck folder and structure, along with providing email notification to key resources identified when the folder structure is created.

Business Benefits

  • The existing report can be updated to consume table storage data.
  • Table Storage is the single source of truth and reporting for Observations data.
  • Lazer Spot management all have the same view of the operational metrics.
  • Inspections are stored centrally in a consistent location to support DOT audits.
  • This is of great benefit to the Fleet team given Federal Government requires documents to be stored in the Truck File.​

Situation

The client wanted to move their SharePoint data into the cloud for their legacy 2010 Autotrader and Manheim 2010 and 2013 environments.

Solution

Via the P&A and SP-SPO PROD Migration effort, ThreeWill helped Client migrate their 2010 and 2013 Manheim farms, along with their 2010 Autotrader farm On Premises SharePoint content to Microsoft 365 (SharePoint and Teams).

ThreeWill:

  • Collaboratively worked with Client to help ensure clarity on criteria for deleting and archiving sites.
  • Wrote a script targeting the web level to apply the Migration Banners.
  • Provided a script that could help identify SiteOwners.
  • Utilized the Fuel Transfer Path tool as an avenue for the SiteOwners to respond using the Disposition Change Request Form as to whether they wanted their site to be migrated.
  • Continuously worked with Client to help ensure the Web Inventory List, which ultimately tracked the disposition status and acted as a data source for the disposition app, stayed updated throughout the project.
  • Created SharePoint area for logging the CAI SP-SPO Issues.  Also provided Cox supporting documentation for logging the issues.

Business Benefits

  • Decommission or stop using the Farms at some point as needed.
    • All farms are currently in redirect mode, at the end of life, which is ultimately targeting for decommissioning.
  • The Analysis and Planning effort allowed an opportunity to identify the SiteOwners and notify them via the use of a Banner/Email of the upcoming SP migration.  It also provided a Pause Period, which allowed sufficient time for the Client to collect feedback from the SiteOwners that helped to determine whether Migration was needed for their site.
  • The Analysis and Planning helped Client determine out of 5000+ webs, ultimately only around 100 needed to be included with the SP to SPO Production Migration.
  • By moving their data to Microsoft Teams and SharePoint Online, the Client ultimately is helping their resources to work smarter and collaborate together.​
