By adding WorkPoint 365 on top of their Microsoft 365 platform, Norwegian cottage supplier, Rindalshytter, went from basic sticky notes to complete project control and structure. Together with Norwegian WorkPoint Partner, Serit More, a solution was implemented that offered users at Rindalshytter a user-friendly interface which could easily be rolled out across the organization.
Rindalshytter is the oldest cottage supplier in Norway and have for more than 60 years, built and delivered cottages. The company was founded in 1964 as a local family-run establishment, but today the business is one of the leading companies in the market and delivers cottages across the entire country.
However, much has changed since the start in 1964. Even though, the company still live by its ground principles of building innovative, creative and functional cottages. According to Head of Project Department at Rindalshytter, Jon Landsem, they got a platform in WorkPoint 365 that matched their ambitions for effective project management, as well as digitally transforming some of their key processes:
“We actually went from physical notebooks to total project control – Compared to the time used with notebooks and sticky notes, it has gone a lot faster. For instance, to check if we have forgotten to invoice something, we just click into the Power BI report to get an overview. We have a complete overview, from the customers’ first inquiry till the cottage is finished and the keys are handed over”.
The solution is implemented by Norwegian, Silver Partner, Serit More. For Senior Consultant, Terje Haug, it was natural next step for them to implement WorkPoint 365, as they were challenged to get the full benefit of Microsoft 365 and really start utilizing its tools:
“When I started working here, Rindalshytter, had already started to use Microsoft 365. But they felt that they did not utilize the system well enough. We suggested to expand the system by adding WorkPoint 365 on their Microsoft solution. To get increased control of internal processes in the organization”.
WorkPoint 365 has a very well-defined, structured and flexible setup for standard project management, that matches well with organizations, where there exists a need for establishing a foundation for project standardization and collaboration. As Terje was introduced to the internal processes at Rindalshytter, he also quickly noticed a strategic match:
“I believe WorkPoint 365 is a great match for Rindalshytter, because they have production processes that are reasonably straightforward to handle. The production works of blueprints and the basis is retrieved from WorkPoint 365. This works very well with the thought of WorkPoint”.
Taking on a new digital platform can be a difficult task. For Rindalshytter, it was important to provide their employees with a system, that did not require too many resources in e.g. development, time and manpower. As a result, with great assistance from Serit More’s consultants, it was a very smooth transition as users were quick to adapt to the WorkPoint 365 platform. Jon Landsem explains:
“After using it a short period of time, the processes in WorkPoint is quite intuitive. The user-friendly interface is making it easy for all coworkers to adopt the new tool. When the interface is made as user-friendly as it is at Rindalshytter, everyone will manage to use it”.
However, one of the main criteria was in the system’s accessibility. As employees at Rindalshytter often need to access data, upload documentation or make project updates on-the-go, there was a need to implement a platform, that could be accessed from the office in Oslo to (as the video suggest) the foot of the mountain range Trollheimen:
“A whole different quality and structure on everything, from A to Z. We do not lose WorkPoint the same way, we could lose our notebook. WorkPoint is available on your phone, on your computer. You always have it available, control over every process and you are always in control!”.
