Case Study: Canada Post
Canada Post is one of the largest employers in Canada, with 64,000 staff working from 6,200 post offices across the country. Canada Post began deploying SharePoint 2013 in order to replace an existing estate of file shares, a dated SAP system and some shadow IT cloud platforms like Dropbox. SharePoint was chosen because the organization was already using other Microsoft tools like Outlook and Office. The change management team knew that SharePoint would only be a success if it was integrated into employees’ day-to-day activities. Simply making SharePoint available would not result in mass user adoption.
Canada Post invested in SharePoint 2013 and wanted to make a success of user adoption.
For an organization of Canada Post’s size, deploying new technology is always a challenge.
Because SharePoint requires users to perform additional steps to correctly store content, Canada Post needed a way to make SharePoint easier to use.
Canada Post embraced a proactive approach to change management that initially involved a gradual roll out of the technology.
The organization also employed a team of internal consultants, called 'Information Management Champions’, who were skilled at training users in new technology.
The third and final ingredient was to deploy harmon.ie, which made using SharePoint much easier for Canada Post’s staff.
harmon.ie has also been deployed at:
Library and Archives Canada
Department of Finance
Immigration and Refugee Board
Agriculture and Agri-Foods Canada
Department of Justice
