Ocean Conservancy

OBJECTIVE: Ocean Conservancy wished to significantly improve their ability to communicate and collaborate with their nationwide offices. Their SharePoint 2007 intranet site was not being utilized and Ocean Conservancy staff was still using shared drives and emails for file storage and collaboration. The Ocean Conservancy recognized a clear business requirement to share information more effectively.
SOLUTION: Ocean Conservancy chose to upgrade their SharePoint 2007 intranet site to SharePoint 2010 and decided to call their new site the “FINtranet”. “Since we already had SharePoint 2007, we decided to upgrade to SharePoint 2010 to provide a more collaborative user experience and easier file storage,” explained Sarah Ahrens, Ocean Conservancy’s Community Engagement Specialist. “Our strategy has been to conduct a slow launch to promote user adoption and effectively train our content authors on SharePoint 2010.”
RESULT: Protiviti’s creative and user experience teams worked closely with Ocean Conservancy before the actual upgrade to put a much more user-centric design in place and to improve the information architecture of FINtranet to ensure a dramatic increase in user adoption. “We have received positive feedback from our staff regarding the new FINtranet,” Ahrens said. “It is great to use the announcement, calendar and meeting workspace site functions to better collaborate with our other offices.”
WHY PROTIVITI? Protiviti focuses on enabling nonprofits to take advantage of the benefits of SharePoint and was recommended to Ocean Conservancy by one of its longtime partners, Delcor Technology Solutions.
