Alchemy are project managing the delivery of the Atkins Global Portal rollout. This is one of the earliest, biggest and most complex SharePoint 2017 implementations, serving as it does 15,000 employees across three continents and multiple business disciplines and languages. The first release to reach end-users is anticipated to take place in autumn 2017.
Atkins has been consistently among the UK’s Top 10 Best Big Companies to work for over the last five years and is growing and evolving rapidly. As such, existing portal and collaboration capabilities fall short of future need.
The new Atkins Portal has the potential to unite the entire workforce and to introduce new ways of communicating and collaborating. The ambitious vision for the Portal is to have one place to go for information and one way of working, in support of “one, joined-up Atkins”.
Says Sharon Hayward, Atkins Manager responsible for the Intranet, “Alchemy have helped us to structure our project and manage our technical & design partners. Having a project manager with extensive intranet experience helps us to ensure on-time delivery to a high quality – whilst avoiding the mistakes of others”.
Says David Viney, “the Atkins Portal Programme has the potential to truly transform ways of working in the company. We are delighted to be a part of this, and in having the opportunity to put Microsoft’s excellent new SharePoint version through its paces on one of the biggest and earliest implementations of the technology in Europe”.
