IMGROUP, a leading provider of information management strategies and services, and Microsoft's Worldwide Partner of the Year in Business Intelligence and Data Management for four consecutive years, has announced that it has won a project to implement the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 solution for Xerox Corporation's Developing Markets Operations business unit.
Xerox, a leading provider of business process and document management services, selected IMGROUP to build and implement a Sharepoint based global extranet solution to help promote its products and services to more than 22,000 partners globally and provide a platform for collaboration, networking and best practice sharing. The extranet is entirely owned and driven by the DMO marketing team, whose focus is on managing the Xerox brand identity and ensuring the highest quality of service across its global base of partners.
Richard Lewis, SharePoint Business Manager at IMGROUP said, "The real challenge with an implementation like this is getting the user experience right. Regardless of the quality and quantity of content inside the solution, the user experience can bring people closer together or alienate them, strengthen the brand or weaken it, improve engagement with customers or drive them elsewhere. Our track record of delivering solutions built around great customer user experience was key to our selection for this implementation."
Paul Walton, DMO Webtools Manager, Xerox, comments "We wanted a leading edge platform with single sign on, social capability, multilingual content, and metrics for analysing usage. We believe deploying Microsoft SharePoint 2010 as a standard platform across the organisation will help us reduce development times, increase productivity and enable us to collaborate more effectively across our extensive partner network. We chose to work with IMGROUP as it was clear they had a comprehensive solution delivery approach, along with innovation, creativity, responsiveness and passion."
