Need for information management
Teck’s Project Development Group required an information management solution for the full lifecycle of a project. The system needed to provide a secure and efficient process for service providers to submit documentation to the owner’s team and vice versa, for review, comments and approval, in a robust and timely manner.
Teck and its service providers needed an efficient and auditable method to transmit critical and key documents to enable timely decisions and approvals in order to minimise potential for a project delay that could impact the cost and schedule.
Based on Microsoft SharePoint
Cadac Group developed the Cadac Organice Suite to make Microsoft SharePoint capabilities accessible for the engineering, oil and gas and the mining world. Cadac Group recognized that a solution designed to support communication and collaboration between project partners should be intelligent and easy to use.
In addition, it should seamlessly integrate with the infrastructure of involved parties. Cadac Group strategically chose to develop its solutions based on Microsoft SharePoint. Microsoft SharePoint is a powerful platform for enterprise content management and project collaboration. The solution is easy to deploy and use due to its internet and portal technology, regardless of the internal IT infrastructure.More about Cadac Organice Suite

The project development group and Cadac Group collaborated throughout the implementation stages and each part was extensively documented. Following internal tests and training the production environment was launched.
After successful initial deployment on one of Teck’s largest projects, Teck decided to deploy the solution globally to all major projects.
