Business Situation

Faced with an aging application infrastructure and many manual processes, GBP saw the time was ripe to implement process automation and improve collaboration. Tasked with helping drive the digital transformation of the company, Jeff Wojciuk – GBP’s Application Development Manager – decided the quickest and best path was to make the most of their current technology. He looked to collaborate with Skyline to see how to leverage their existing Microsoft 365 (M365) licensing to generate business value and maximize the benefit of their existing Microsoft investments.
 

Skyline's Approach

The first step was to convince internal stakeholders that M365 was the right solution. “Many organizations have M365 but have no idea what it can do,” Wojciuk said. “Most think it’s just useful for document management, but it can also do content management, versioning, workflows, and more.”

With Skyline’s help, Wojciuk was able to demonstrate how the tools could help GBP accelerate its digital transformation. Together, he and Skyline started to collect data on departmental and divisional needs and create metrics about comparative prioritization.

Working within the company’s culture was essential to understanding how each division responded to change and new technology/processes to ensure durable adoption. The Skyline team met with each department to understand their work and workflows, their pain points, and what they wanted to accomplish. These needs were then broken down and mapped to targeted solutions, which were then placed into a phased implementation roadmap. The phases were designed to allow the team to quickly get set up with functional solutions, validate that the solution met the department’s needs, and then layer more functionality onto this foundation.

Skyline implemented each solution step-by-step, training the GBP staff on how to use the new technology and processes – making sure to provide regular updates on the status of their content journey.

The graphics below provide a high-level snapshot of how we have used M365 to drive value across the organization to-date. (For detailed breakdowns of several of these solutions, please continue reading.)
