Case Studies

"With Azure Active Directory, Royal Dutch Shell provides fast, highly secure access to external vendors, cutting onboarding time from months to less than a week. “With SaaS solutions, you gain speed-of-change. Moving to the cloud is the overall Shell strategy to obtain a much more agile, fast-moving environment than we could with an on-premises space.”

Johan Krebbers, IT Chief Technology Officer, Royal Dutch Shell

IDENTITY: THE CONTROL PLANE OF THE ENTERPRISE

Your organization’s spent time and energy maintaining your on-premises Active Directory. Now, IT can provide the same controls, sign on and management experience to cloud applications hosted in the public cloud.

Azure Active Directory:

  • provides single sign on to Office 365 and thousands of other SaaS applications, eliminating the time it takes to enable / disable a user to sign on to all of their work-related cloud apps
  • enables multifactor authentication to O365 and to third party SaaS, which will text or call users with a second factor of security when logging in, with conditional access so that they only get a second prompt when off campus.
  • allows users to reset their own passwords
  • connects to on premises LDAP directories like Shibboleth
  • allows users to create and manage their own security groups (to add/delete users without IT)

Why we won the award…

What technologies we provide users is an important decision, but perhaps the most important question of all is “will they use it?” Enabling’s “Lights, Camera, Adoption!” Organizational Change Management program provides customers with the tools required to successfully drive user acceptance and high adoption of new technologies. Enabling ensures that everyone in the organization is excited to use the new technology with fun and exciting pre-planned deployment plans. Operational Change Management made all the difference with one of Enabling’s local clients. Enabling just finished up working with this new client to deploy Lync Enterprise Voice at over 70 locations with more than 7,000 users. They were able to use the preplanned roll out plans from Enabling Technologies to insure a successful adoption.

Why we won the award…

Our client, one of the nation’s leading architecture and engineering firms, wanted to improve customer relationship management. They required their project managers to take notes of customer phone calls in Dynamics’ CRM. However, their PMs only used CRM to log calls, and rarely kept it open and available. Getting to CRM’s call notes page took eight mouse clicks for each phone call, taking time and effort. Many times, the PMs were unwilling or unable to spend the extra time to comply with procedures. Enabling created ETC CRM Sync, which uses Lync APIs to automatically pop a screen to the customer’s CRM page, where the PM can immediate start taking notes. The integration significantly reduced the time and effort it normally takes to log the call notes in CRM. Not only did Enabling’s solution save their project managers time, but the company has much more accurate reporting and a complete call history for all their clients in CRM.

Why we won the award…

Our client, a global provider of strategic outsourcing services, looked to Enabling for assistance rolling out Unified Communications to their organization. Depending on the time of year and the status of outsourcing contracts, user counts ranged between 7,000-14,000. They needed to replace their older Avaya PBXs and Voicemail systems. Enabling designed and implemented Lync, including Enterprise Voice, and Exchange Unified Messaging. In addition, Enabling used Lync’s APIs to connect to the client’s attendance/absentee tracking system. When an employee called in sick, Lync’s IVR took the call, prompted the caller to enter an employee ID and reason for absence, then inserted the information into the attendance application. Lync would then place an outcall to other potential substitutes and prompted them to ask if they’d be able to cover the shift. This saved FTEs from having to manually handle the process, and enabled quicker coverage for absenteeism. Lync not only proved to be a reliable voice system, but Enabling turned it into an extensible business enabler.
