“JFDI replaced our legal and contract management system in SharePoint, saving my team days of effort each month.”Chris Phillips, Business Systems Manager, Countryside Properties

Case Study #1: SharePoint Contract and Legal Document Management System

We streamlined the contracts management process, eliminating administrative overheads. Contracts are now automatically categorised and saved to the correct location.

Each of Countryside’s 250+ developments had a separate legal documents repository in SharePoint, and creating new ones took hours of labour-intensive work. Through the implementation of appropriate SharePoint information architecture, we completely removed this overhead.

We took their existing SharePoint corpus of contract and legal documents, preserving metadata, and migrated them into one cohesive management structure. Legal documents are now easy to save, categorise and find.

Case Study #2: Mobile Inspection Forms

Countryside’s health and safety site inspections mobile app sends data to our integration platform. An automated process reads their completed inspection forms and creates suitable repositories on SharePoint Online. We accurately and automatically augment their forms with metadata on the way, which makes them discoverable, accessible, actionable and preserved for life whilst significantly reducing staff workload.

Case Study #3: Human Resources Portal

We took design cues from Countryside’s existing website to build an HR news portal in SharePoint. Without needing any HTML or web design knowledge, their HR team can now create rich, good-looking content. They can create professional-looking company-wide bulletins, announcements and news posts, which link to and include policies and employee benefits information.
