Panasonic Trove Development Project

Client Profile

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.

Situation

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.

Solution

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.

Business Benefits

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.

PR Newswire serves tens of thousands of clients from offices in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific regions.

Situation

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.

Solution

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).

Business Benefits

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.

Integration with Service Cloud

Customer Support Site Integration with Service Cloud

Client Profile

Global information services company serves the legal, business, tax, accounting, finance, audit, risk, compliance, and healthcare markets. They operate in over 150 countries and have over 19K employees.

Situation

The client’s Service Excellence organization was planning to implement the Salesforce Service Cloud solution for their customers and Service Excellence and Sales teams.  The Service Cloud solution would provide new functionality for submitting, updating and viewing Customer Cases as well as provide a new Knowledge base to support all of the client’s call centers.  As a result of this new Service Cloud implementation, the site would need to be integrated with Service Cloud to support customers creating, updating and viewing of support Cases and to allow customers to search the new Service Cloud Knowledge base.

Solution

By leveraging the client’s Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and the Service Cloud API’s, ThreeWill was able to provide employees and customers with access to Service Cloud Cases ands Knowledgebase via the Support Site.  This included supporting a phased rollout of Service Cloud which meant supporting different back-end service applications for Cases and Knowledgbase for each call center.

Business Benefits

The client now has a fully implemented and integrated Service Excellence platform, Salesforce Service Cloud integrated with the client’s Support Site, for their customers and employees.  This enabled the client to move to a cloud-based solution for their Service Excellence team, yet preserving the UX for the customer who accesses Cases and Knowledgebase information via the Support Portal.
