Connect was the project name.
Lightlever was engaged via the Office 365 Collaboration Kickstart program.
Community Connections Society of Southeast BC is a not for profit social service agency. We provide services to communities throughout the East Kootenay area of British Columbia. We employee approximately 120 staff throughout the East Kootenay. With continued budget constraints, rising cost and growth of organization we found it necessary to move to an ‘intranet secure system’. Successful grant application allowed us to move in this direction.
CCSSEBC was looking for ways to more easily share files. They purchased Office 365 to save money and consolidate email into one reliable host, and were told they could save files and collaborate using the SharePoint part of Office 365.
CCSSEBC was referred to Lightlever Systems and purchased the “Office 365 Collaboration Kickstart” package. Lightlever provided basic training via Skype, built a simple intranet, and taught the admin staff how to maintain the site and add new programs. The finished intranet was presented to a pilot group of users. All trainings were recorded and posted to the intranet for future reference and reminding.
The process for this new system to occur was very smooth. We have many that are not computer ‘efficient’ but Lightlever was very respectful of our understanding. Recognition of the need for simplicity has met all our expectations. Timelines were completed with efficiency. Communication between the parties was quick and very clear. We feel that all our needs have been met and can hardly wait until our full agency system is cloud based. We know that this move will only improve our work on a day to day basis.
