In 2014 Core29 were engaged to perform systems diligence on behalf of Inflexion Private Equity in support of their potential investment. Following successful completion of the transaction, Core29 were invited to deliver the recommendations detailed in the final diligence report.
PD&MS recognised the importance of streamlining the management of not only their internal workflows but the refining and streamlining of their existing project data to allow simple access and control. After engagement with key stakeholders the Projects mission statement was defined as:
‘To deliver an environment which enables effective collaboration, improves key business process management through the use of automation and workflows and centralises the management of data (non- project deliverables) across PD&MS.’
PD&MS identified a need to improve the management of project deliverables (drawings, work packages, documentation etc). It was decided that an eDMS system was to be implemented across the business.
The delivery of an ‘off the shelf’ eDMS system. Utilising standard workflows and functionality.
