Why did the Port of Ghent involve LoQutus? Their initial experiments with SharePoint did not bring about the results they hoped for, so they decided to involve our experts.
Here are some of the trends & challenges they were facing:
- North Sea Port gradually evolved into a knowledge organization, how do you support this?
- How to (re)train employees to adapt to the shift from operational activities towards administrative processes?
- How do you avoid the loss of expertise within an aging team & transfer this to new employees?
- With a rejuvenation of the workforce they wanted to implement a modern & efficient work environment.
“With the average employee aged 49, we find ourselves at the threshold of a major change: approximately half of the employees will be leaving in the next few years.” – Dieter Boedts, Director Organization & Staff
How did LoQutus approach this project?:
- SWOT analysis to see if SharePoint was the best solution for North Sea Port (it was)
- Comprehensive business analysis to detail the specific needs & optimize SharePoint to address these
- Helping North Sea Port to outline the tender
- Supervising & assisting with implementation of SharePoint
- Data quality review and finetuning data governance together with all departments.
- Step-by-step migration towards SharePoint
- Drafting a roadmap to list future improvements to evolve towards a truly ‘digital workplace’
“Their contribution truly made the difference. It quickly became apparent that LoQutus gets involved on both a micro and a macro level. This close collaboration enables them to deliver invaluable expert advice. They truly deliver the deliverables and keep their promises.” – Mieke Popelier, Information Manager
