SharePoint saved Hydro International time, increased business agility and improved employee engagement
Hydro International develop innovative solutions for cost-effective stormwater and wastewater management. Headquartered outside of Bristol, UK, Hydro conducts operations worldwide through a combined network of licensees and distributors.
Hydro have grown through acquisitions to become the international organisation they are today. Their organisation is divided into divisions and group functions.
In the knowledge that geographical boundaries had hindered intranet performance with their existing on-premise intranet, Hydro were keen to consider cloud alternatives.
They were already using Microsoft Office 365 service for Exchange Online so SharePoint Online seemed the logical hosting option for their new intranet.
Before deployment of the new SharePoint solution got signed off and began being built, Pythagoras created a basic wireframe in order for both sides to get an idea of look and feel of the solution.
Based on this feedback, an interactive prototype was then developed and circulated across all divisions and group functions at Hydro in order to test the effectiveness of the navigation and other core elements of the solution.
Following deployment, Hydro benefited from: increased business agility, reduced time wasted searching and duplicating effort, and increased employee engagement.
