YKK is using some existed system and is going to prepare for SharePoint online project as a business collaboration and development platform with a strong focus on using for enterprise content management, communication and workflows as a tool to streamline its business processes.
YKK realizes the importance of collaboration in which its employees can see company information, announcement, company events and share document with each other in a consistent eOffice portal. The following potential issues have been gathered so far:

  • YKK has realized the fact that managing lots of information, document often take time due to lack of a management tool.
  • YKK possesses a very large amount of information that is not well being managed. Its employees very often need to take time to research data without being aware of the fact that their colleagues already have.
  • Employees find information related to specific topic hardly. There is no dynamic tool or robust Search to help in filtering/searching document keyword.
  • There is no automatic business process facilitating the corporate process (e.g. Leave Request Management, Meeting Booking Room…)
  • Business data is not present in a central place where executives are supposed to view

Via this project, Opus Solution will help YKK for

  • Decreased 80% operation time approval process, get more done in the same amount of time, greatly increasing productivity
