Microsoft 365 is the best foundation for building critical work processes in the cloud to the contractor Borgarverk. Old file folders and Dropbox were thrown on the wayside. WorkPoint 365 transforms Microsoft 365 into an efficient project management tool.
Everything was stored in file folders on a server or in Dropbox when the Icelandic contractor Borgarverk recently chose to take advantage of the Microsoft 365 platform and expand on it with an application for project management in the cloud.
”We have three offices and work on an array of projects several places in Iceland. Because of this, we were in need of a single system for project management. To us, the WorkPoint Project Management tool was absolutely the right choice. It is far easier today to maintain and update critical information for the right people during the entire project process,”
– Says Borgarverk’s CEO, Óskar Sigvaldason
In 2014, Borgarverk chose Microsoft 365, enabling them to take full advantage of the Microsoft suite in the cloud. The contractor suffered from employees running both older and newer Microsoft suites, creating a vast array of problems every day, since many documents could not be opened by a given employee. Simultaneously, Borgarverk had to choose between investing in new servers or go the whole hog and choose a cloud solution. When the investment was pitted against the return, the decision was straightforward.
“Microsoft 365 has shown itself to be much more reliable to us than merely having Microsoft installed on our own servers. We are now able to connect our computers regardless of our geographical whereabouts. We are always in possession of the newest Microsoft suite, we no longer have problems connecting, we have no server downtime, and there is no need for us to install updates ourselves or maintenance. It has been a really good, practical solution for us.”
However, Microsoft 365 did not solve Borgarverk’s challenge when it came to managing projects. Óskar Sigvaldason experienced difficulties looking for information on older projects. It was too time-consuming looking documents, drawings, contracts, and the like. Being experienced when it came to SharePoint, he hesitated to go that route, as the costs would be too high, and the demands of time would be too much to build a solution from scratch. So, when the Icelandic WorkPoint partner Spektra instead recommended WorkPoint 365 – a turnkey standard solution for project management building atop SharePoint Online in Microsoft 365 – Óskar Sigvaldason immediately saw the potential. Within two days, Borgarverk was ready to import data into the new project management tool.
”We still have not imported and entered all the data, but we can already see how much easier it is to find the information we need on a daily basis. WorkPoint 365 allows you to structure data into categories, which makes it much easier to structure and search on the information that is needed. On larger projects, we now are always in possession of a blueprint of the project – that is; an updated snapshot of where we are in the project, containing all new information, and we do not risk confusing the new documents with older versions. It is very impressive.”
To Óskar Sigvaldason, this has already meant a huge difference when it comes to getting an overview of his company. He has gained much larger oversight of how far a project has progressed, and he is constantly able to compare the cost to the original tender.
”I do not miss anything. The system is capable of everything we need. The best part is, that WorkPoint 365 is fully integrated with Microsoft 365. It solved all of our challenges.”
